Statistics show that millennial women are less ambitious than men, and personally I find that really upsetting and disturbing. The gap is the widest at the millennial generation as well at approx 20%. Why is it that millennial men are more ambitious than ever? Does it have something to do with our generation’s culture or upbringing? Whatever it is, I hope women rise up and dream bigger.
One thing I struggled with was accepting my ambitions. I had tried to shy away from them and convince myself that I didn’t want them because I was scared of failing and was not confident in myself. I also thought it was an easier way to live but it was not. It doesn’t hurt to dream and have desires. Even if it doesn’t work out, at least you tried and have no regrets. You will come out of it stronger and learn more about yourself.
I hope everyone can help support women in the workplace and personal life, so we can see the possibility of having it all. Whether it is helping a female coworker navigate the political environment at work or helping out with chores at home, every little thing helps.
In case you were wondering....
You Are So Freaking Awesome! ✨
This is something that I am reminded of, every single day by all the amazing people on my team. It is so important to surround ourselves with a positive, caring, and supportive tribe. I am so grateful that I have found that, and so much more!
Let’s make 2019 the year that transforms us into the freaking amazing human beings that we are. Don’t be afraid to try something new, trust me it will be the best decision you’ve ever made! Let’s talk and make your dreams a reality!
I heard someone the other day say that you shouldn’t post your rank advancements and awards on social media because nobody really cares and it comes across as bragging.
I was bummed when I heard that, because I’ve always encouraged people to be proud of their accomplishments.
When I post mine, it’s not to brag at all. I want people to know that if I can do this, anyone can.
Did I think 15 months ago that I’d be where I am?? Hahaha no way!
If someone asked me if I thought for a second I’d come in 1st in my whole country for this category I would have fell over laughing.
Wanna know why?? Because I didn’t believe in myself. I just didn’t.
I had very low confidence. That is until I joined a company that showed me that I could achieve anything I set my mind to. That made me feel strong and confident. That I could lead a team of my own!!! So no. I don’t see it bragging at all. I see it as hopefully inspiring others to not give up on their dreams. Even if they seem too big.
I’ve come a long way in many ways. My mindset, my growth in the company, my leadership, my belief in myself, I could go on..... Life is good. ❤️
This week -
50.9 miles ran
60 hours at work (including 24 hours overtime)
Safe to say it's been a busy week!
No matter how big your dream is, you can still achieve it, you may have to work for it, but if you want it, nothing is impossible.
I have a dream. A massive dream. Until I book that one way flight I have to work so bloody hard, both on my fitness as well as saving up as much as I can to survive as long as I can on the road (I still intend to do bits of work here + there on my travels). Overtime is NOT guaranteed at all, but it's been busier in the warehouse from October - December, so I'm trying to rake in all the overtime I can get.
Onto the next week, let's get at the miles and work hours 🏃 🌍
Still a little stiff from this morning's run, so a steady run took my mileage up to 50.9 for the week, first time in quite a while I've hit the 50 mile mark in a week.
Last couple of longer runs has made me realise just how important it is that I keep this up. Come 2020 when I do start travelling / running the world, my fitness will naturally decrease. And if I'm say 30 months into the trip and running unaided in a different climate to what I'm used to, say Saudi or somewhere, I'll be partially relying on these weeks and months to keep me fit enough to get through.
Here to the start of many high mileage weeks 👌
Found an old SD card. I used to sit at home most evenings designing stable blocks on Microsoft word, no one showed me how to do it so I just made do with what I had. Needless to say they where never dreams... But ambitions! Every day I reflect on things I used to do as a child and I can proudly say I never wasted a moment with the 'dreams' as I take a look at my life now I realise how thise ambitions are slowly becoming a reality.
Just what I needed tonight! No matter what~ I will continue to pour my heart into my dreams. Entrepreneurship is not easy and well quite frankly... mostly doubted by some of our closest ones.
Some say I grind too hard, and why am I so busy or tired. I have a vision-and this moment in my life I am busy and tired-but the light is coming, and this is all for a reason.
Some are very judgmental on how can I allow myself to be so busy and a “workaholic” being a newly wed and how I may be failing as a wife. I have a supportive husband who believes in me, my vision and dream. He told me to GO FOR IT AND DON’T STOP~and that it will be hard at first while working the hours I’m working as a nurse, but will pay off. He told me he was 💯 in on my jump.
Some question why we opened a retail shop when we are nurses. Well, it’s not just a retail shop; it is a wellness boutique. A place in our community, empowering others with natural options, empowering others to believe & love themselves & bringing light to others buried dreams. Earthly Essentials brings us happiness & an oasis to our lives. We have created a beautiful thing ✨Hard work pays off & I won’t stop. I get to be creative & bring joy to others in a different way. .
dōTERRA into every home was and IS the foundation of our @earthlyessentialsvibrations The WHY behind the shop will continue to fulfill my vision. I see something BIGGER than what others might not see. And yes, I have ALOT of supportive friends, family & an amazing community loving what Melissa & I are bringing, but I also have a lot of hurtful comments- even if unintentional- on why I’m doing what I’m doing. But this is MY life and I am building my future; my families future! AND behind other people’s fear, doubt and maybe even jealousy- there is my success! I am a motivated, hard working, independent, loving women & It’s all happening now. I also grinded my way through nursing school-having worked my way up from a housekeeper on my own! Labor & delivery nursing is still my heart, but so is this path.
Today I found out that I am extremely close to accomplishing a HUGE goal that I never thought I’d actually be able to do. Knowing that I am about to conquer this vision and turn it into a reality is pretty cool. There have been so many times that I wanted to just throw in the towel and give up. I feel like it’s hard for everyone at certain times to truly believe in themselves when being challenged. I don’t know how, but I made it this far! Almost to the finish line...almost!!! #impressyourself#hardworkpaysoff#doeverythingforyou#goaldigger#proud#surpriseyourself#nodreamistoobig#thefutureisbright
What a great day for Orange County congrats to newly elected Mayor of Orange a county Jerry Demings. As always it’s a pleasure to connect with City of Orlando District 6 Commissioner Samuel B Ings, thank you for your service as well. This is black excellence at its finest. #dreamscometrue#nodreamistoobig#blackexcellence#hiswifeblack
My goal for the 1st Quarter of 2019 is to get more women across the “fitness” finish line. I have decided to discontinue my monthly programs and shift my focus to a 12-week progressive plan that incorporates more behavioral change strategies that will help prevent relapses to unhealthy ways. In addition to a (nutritional) meal plan, members will receive a “mental” meal plan to help them progress towards their goals. I’ve also invested a lot into branding materials. Just got new tanks and journals. Jackets, water bottles and pens done, resistance bands next.
2,000+ women have experienced MPowered programs this year. I am so so thankful! #mpoweredfitness @mpoweredfitnessig #NoDreamIsTooBig Learn more about #MPoweredMax at mariamore.com (link in bio)
A volte non ci diamo pace quando le storie finiscono. Pensiamo che le persone che abbiamo amato ci debbano qualcosa, che abbiano nei nostri confronti qualche obbligo morale. Ci chiediamo dove abbiamo sbagliato e cerchiamo di razionalizzare il loro comportamento perché l'uomo ha sempre bisogno di una spiegazione per tutto. Beh se non ci siete ancora arrivati vi tolgo dell'incertezza: non avete nessuna colpa e non ci sono comportamenti da dover giustificare. Le persone che abbiamo amato non sono altro che ospiti inaspettati a cui dobbiamo essere riconoscenti per averci aiutato a capire qualcosa di questo grande mistero che è la vita. La natura ci insegna che bisogna guardare avanti, perché a guardare sempre indietro, alla fine ci perdiamo le cose belle che ci passano davanti. Buona giornata a todos! 😉😎 #goodmorning#bepositive#sunnyday#wonderful#love#nodreamistoobig#skyisthelimit#grazie#inostridiscorsidellanotte#diventanopensieriilgiornodopo#imparare#ascoltare
Follow your DREAMS. If you have a GOAL, and you want to ACHIEVE it, then work HARD and do everything you CAN to get there, and one day it will come TRUE.
This is just one of the many Volkswagen Van that I saw in my life time. So many to came before I have my own! So many friends to accompany me in my journey! Some I already know others I still have to meet. Can’t wait! Love ya all!
