We’ve come a long way from that era when women gather only for poetry reading, gossip, and men. While poetry will always be in our hearts, these days, we are witnessing the coming of age of women taking on the highest leadership roles in our society, in business, politics, and her own home, influencing the next generations to come.
It takes a strong woman to dream. It takes an even stronger woman to follow her dreams and ambitions as she journeys to fulfil her own mission. To the inspired and able, here are five starter tips to slay your own personal goals:
1. Own It
Being committed to your dreams and ambitions define what you want to achieve. Taking ownership of our decisions and focusing on them gives the foundation where efforts, capabilities, and investments in time and money will be targeted. Also, only you know the extent of your vision so prepare to fight for your objective and take on what’s ahead no matter what.
2. Stay Positive
