Creating a success path for Women today is the only right decision she can take for herself. Here is the sequential steps to creating a success path and reaching goals in your career.
A housewife, blogger, artist, lawyer, doctor, actor, engineer, teacher, student or someone wishing to start working and earning for yourself. You could be anyone but having a path or a process in place is critical. Success is not in just reaching goals. Success is creating a process and a success path to reaching those goals.
1. Acceptance and Acknowledgement – My current status
You need to know where to start. This is the point where you need to question yourself, assess your skills, judge your current situation and list what you have now. Being aware of the present makes you ready to start your journey for the future.
Things to do – Ask yourself easy and the tough questions
2. Planning – Creating Goals, Vision, Values for your success path
To reach the top of the mountain you need to see the peak first or say without knowing what you want you cannot ever get it. The second step, fortunately, which everyone advises you at least once is planning.
Having a clear picture of what you want will not only motivate you but will also steer you in the right direction with full clarity.
Things to do – Set up your daily, weekly, monthly and yearly goals. Sounds like a lot? Think about a scenario if you have no plan at all. Tip– Take help from others who are doing it better.
3. Collaboration for Women
The most important thing to do in life to survive is to collaborate. Collaboration opens many doors of opportunities, pushes us to think differently, pushes us to extremes to achieve those crazy goals we plan.
Things to do – List people or business you want to collaborate with, Add a goal to send them an email. Emails are very powerful
4. Time – Women and success both need time
Time management is an art. We all get the same amount of time and using it smartly we all can create a path for our success. As women, we expect a lot from ourselves. Sometimes I wish to be the multitasking Durga and slaying every job like the monsters. So, routine and time management enables us to have a healthy balance. When I say healthy its not work and home balance. It is balance in time for self and time for everything else
Things to do – Set up your sleep alarm, set up your hobby time, set up your weekly exercise time. Dedicate your work hours.
5. Create skills for a success path
Every career path you choose Skills is changing drastically every year. So, upskilling, reskilling and learning new skills are key for staying in the league to reaching your success. With new skills, the understanding and knowledge of the field increases and exposure will add more experience.
Things to do – List the skills you should have to succeed in yout path, identify where you can learn for free or paid, choose which course you want to take up today or even better create your course that you can sell to others
6. Passion – bring passion and real you in your work
This probably should be on the top but I put it here in case you skimmed. So, it will still remain fresh in your brain. So, unless you bring your true self and fall in love with your work it is not going to lead you anywhere. Identify the work area which you like or fall in love with where you currently are. Do what you would do for your love of life for work.
Things to do – Use your crazy idea and create a plan for presentation. You never know a crazy idea like this blog hop might even materialise. Trust yourself and give your self the freedom to try your ideas
