For many, success is defined quite subjectively, yet it commonly relates to the attainment of one’s goals, position and sense of fulfillment with life. For women, as we make it through this process of achievement, referred to as the Science of Achievement, our femininity is most generally lost. So why is it that the most successful business women are indeed the most feminine?
Feminine Essence Defined
Being a feminine woman is choosing to honor the gifts offered at birth from that core essence of femininity, influencing and shaping life. The feminine essence is purely and instinctively that girl pictured in movies who hops, dances and bounces through flower fields with the joy, freedom and playfulness so envied by many in their mid-life! Feminine essence is being in flow with the present moment; flexible and open to life’s challenges, authentically unbridled, and nurturing of beauty and relationships. When a woman is in her feminine essence, life is magnified life through her heart and soul. Femininity in its purest form is attributed by vulnerability, generosity, creativity, radiance, playfulness and freedom… How gorgeous, right?
Achievement vs Fulfilment
The Science of Achievement is not conducive to the Art of Fulfillment! And most people, especially ambitious feminine women, allow the desire for success derail their sense of self. Life, and all the objectives we set for it, along with the constant desire for MORE, becomes a forever evolving definition of success unfortunately based on extrinsic achievements alone. However, my mentor, Tony Robbins, said it best, “Success without fulfillment is the ultimate failure”, and undoubtedly that quote is applicable to all, men and women alike.
“Success without fulfillment is the ultimate failure”
While a vast majority of business women climbing the social and professional ladder of life disconnect with that girl (mainly because of her natural adaptability), the most successful women have found the tools and wisdom to stay connected with what actually makes them even more powerful. A woman who dares to be more of her intrinsic self by relentlessly adopting a growth mindset AND unconditionally embracing her femininity becomes irresistibly powerful. Living authentically and congruently within one’s truth and core essence (this applies to men as well) is the secret sauce that helps us reach an organic power that lives within each of us, which leads to far greater success because it is based on actual fulfillment.
The Result is Radiance
Being a powerful woman whose success comes from the depth of her feminine spirit communicates unclouded radiance. A business woman who has understood that her radiance is what magnifies her success becomes unstoppable and fearless. The heights of her potential are limitless, where her dreams are simply part of her reality.
