Big girls are on fire and achieve more than ever in business, sports, writing and every other area they chose to. The world seems to be cheering all over equality between genders and the big girls who make things happen, and seem to be more independent than ever. Nowadays I am thrilled to say there are so many great, inspiring women to follow as role models for every girl or young woman, who seek to achieve the most, live with the best quality of life and have the ability to feel and taste freedom by being independent. There are astonishing and mesmerizing male role models to follow, too. Success does not divide people, but unites them through common values and goals.
I love this world where women are no longer supposed to only stay at home and take care for the chores and kids. Don’t get me wrong if this is what makes you happy and fulfills you, it is more than enough for your life. But if you seek to live in a world filled with challenges, goals to achieve, independence, freedom and financial security I hear you. While there is a massive support and possibilities like never for women I want to point some things that the female leaders have to pay high price for.
#1 being independent means having a choice and not depending on men for security, acceptance or money. This all sounds so great, but many female leaders, female achievers and female champions have troubles with finding their soul mates. Why? Smart, good looking, independent, funny - then what’s the problem? Unfortunately most of men are mesmerized by those women and feel so scared by them at the same time. Yes, I said scared and I meant it! Those women seem so unpredictable, strong and not needy at all – that creates a sense of uncertainty for men. And men like to control and predict things; it is part of their survival instinct.
#2 in many cases the female achievers feel less compelled to share about their successes in the business, sports or any other arena, because they are not supposed to be that strong, independent and achieve so much. Those amazing, gifted, hard - working female champions have the inner struggle whether to point out what they have accomplished with sweat and so many dedications. A lot of times men are cherished and prized when being so successful. But female success on the other side is supposed to be shared only in certain occasions when appropriate and with certain people.
My point is not to compare men and women. We share together the lives we are gifted with on this planet. I admire achievers, champions and leaders in every field, no matter what their gender is. Success takes a lot of trial and errors, failures, hard work and sacrifices that only champions are ready to take, to make things happen. What I ask for is equal acceptance, admiration and freedom to share the juicy fruits of success for men and women. Big girls are on fire and are not stopping anywhere before they achieve what their hearts crave for. A little cheerleading and empowerment can enable us as humans - not men or women - to achieve more, to empower more kids and enable changes that are going to transform the world we live in.
