As a follow up to my Nice Girls post earlier this week, I wanted to share some of the gems of wisdom I found in the book. After taking a quiz to find out where my strengths and weaknesses are, we started to look at things we can do right away to start making immediate changes as well as becoming prepared to work the 101 mistakes to come within the other chapters.
Here are some coaching tips that help us get started:
"Give yourself permission to move from girlhood to womanhood." Basically, don't forget that you are allowed to and encouraged to meet your needs too!
"Visualize yourself as you want to be." I am sure that we all remember someone who told us in the past that we need to write down our goals in order to achieve them. This concept is similar. If you can see yourself where you want to be (i.e. Director, corner office, management, etc.), then you can begin to consider the behaviors that are required to get where you want to be and actions that you will need to take in order to bring this into reality.
"Talk back to the fearful voice inside your head." Empower yourself. Don't be afraid to change to get what you want.
