The Female Factor: A Confidence Guide for Women
Working with hundreds of professionals every year, the author encounters overwhelm as a constant theme today, both at home and professionally. It robs us of our energy, our creativity, our confidence, and ultimately, our success. In her chapter, Lay It Down, Show Up, & Remember, It’s Not About Me, readers are urged to stop and consider how they are choosing to engage in their lives. When we function from ego and external expectations for validation, we will fall consistently fall short. Our strength comes from seeking the source of the plan for our lives, co-creating by showing up, and remembering that we are a vessel not for our personal success, but for our impact on those around us. When we function from the child-like expectation of it being all about us, we miss the opportunity to experience the richness that God has for our lives, the rest that can be sought, and the guidance for our focus. Take a moment to lay it down, think about how you’re showing up, release the ego, and consider enhancing your confidence by choosing not to go it on your own.
