Women are chasing big dreams, at times bigger than their partner’s, parents’ or society’s expectations, limits or norms. There are many women across the globe that have savoured success and created a top-place from themselves. So what do they do differently than the rest? It cannot be just circumstances or luck or a fluke. There is discipline, logic, science and a common pattern that the wealthy and successful have followed to be what they are, to reach where not many tread. Here’s a look at 5 such habits:
1. Knock-down Adversity
Women who are the most successful, are often the ones who were posed most adverse situations in their life. J.K. Rowling and Oprah Winfrey are a few amongst many who have knocked adversity in its face, fetching success.
2. Find Your Calling and Just Do It
Successful women find their calling and do not just ponder over the idea, rather they just do what they intend to. And that’s the biggest differentiator.
3. Jot Down Your Goals
Castles created in mind are just illusions, ideas jotted down on papers become goals and pursuing these goals is what brings success. Sheryl Sandberg still pens down her schedule and to-do lists in a diary.
It sounds cliché but the rich and famous and the most successful do this one act religiously. You’ll find a surfeit of successful leaders, tv personalities, world-class athletes recommending 15 minutes meditation before heading for work.
5. Having it all, but not at the same time
Lastly, know that although you have set yourself for being everything in life, you must also know that having it all is important but may be not at the same time. From Indra Nooyi to Beyonce Knowles, successful women understand this balancing act. Know the secret recipe of success – sacrifice something to achieve something bigger, better, more gratifying!
