I have just started to read Sheryl Sandberg’s (COO of Facebook) book called Lean In. I am only 30 pages into the book, in the throes of all the reasons why things are how they are for women. What keeps popping up into my mind is….so what can we do about it! I’m sure Sheryl is going to get there, but I am a doer, and prefer to take action. I often ‘fail forward’ but that’s for another post;)
So what do you do when there’s an opportunity in front of you that also evokes your insecurities or self doubt? How do you move into action, when you are not feeling fully confident? Anyone?
I’ll go first. I personally plug into my “Power Zone “as a way to move past the self-doubt, the negative messages from the past and insecurities, and into action.
I recently created a short video for an association called Women in Capital Markets about achieve goals, and to do so, we have to move out of our comfort zones, by plugging into our Power Zone. The Link is below.
Once you’ve watched, I’d LOVE to hear where you are on autopilot and what you are going to do differently?
Personally, putting it out there creates a type of accountability for me….keeps me committed to doing it! What do you want to commit to doing? Do you need support or feedback? If so, post it here….let’s get to conversations and actions !
