This is the latest empowerment campaign from Bumble with the fabulous Serena Williams for the SuperBowl. It's hard to believe that it's still necessary to tell women and girls. That still...so many women are still waiting to be asked...for a date, for a pay raise or promotion, to speak. And so many of us don't ask...and then we get angry because we get passed over for something.
The nuns used to tell us to do a good job and people will notice. That might have been true in the last century, but not in this century where everything moves so fast and life becomes like "short attention spam theater."
One of the most frequent pieces of feedback I get from a Victorious Woman or Five-Year Marriage™ talk or workshop is "Thank you for giving my permission [to be empowered].
So many of us "good girls" are waiting, often because we fear rejection and want validation. But only YOU can validate YOU. And rejection....well, we're all going to get it throughout our lives...so we should get used to it.
No matter what stage of life you're in, you need to step up and speak up...without being asked.
Are you still waiting for something?
