If you watch the movies you might reach the conclusion that confident women were just born that way. Or you might believe they won something like the lottery and a successful life was the grand prize. Good news is confident women were not born confident.  They ‘become’ through hard work, dedication and a desire to become as powerful as possible.  Anyone who is willing to give it everything they have can become a more confident woman, they have to be willing to do the work.

You have to be willing to do whatever it takes to meet the goals that you set. Goals are a proven way to help you on your path to success.

First off, you need to identify what your goals are and write them down. Promising yourself you’ll remember them will not work–writing them down is very important.

You need to use dates. Every goal needs a date which is associated with the day it was created as well as a day by which the goal needs to be reached. By using dates, it places deadlines on the goal and makes them more urgent. This will help keep you motivated to reach them.

Taking the time to figure out what obstacles are in your way and how to go about overcoming them is an important part of setting goals. By knowing what obstacles to expect along the way, you can be better prepared for handling them as they appear.

There are people all around you that can help you achieve your goals. List them so that you know who to contact should you find yourself in a position you cannot handle, or an obstacle you are unable to overcome. It’s normal to need help to become a successful woman.

Next list the skills and knowledge necessary to reach your goals. You probably have much of the knowledge you need but you can always learn new things while you’re working on the goals. This will help you to reach your goals as well as expand your skills and knowledge.

Make an action plan for each one of your goals and a list of benefits associated with them. This will help you to choose the best manner of reaching the goals.  The list of benefits will help give meaning to your achievements. Goals which have benefits associated with them feel more worth achieving and help keep your motivation high.

Most of all, you need to take the necessary steps each and every single day to achieve those goals. There is no point in setting goals if you do not intend to work towards them. When you have done the necessary things to make achieving them easier, you will be able to reach the goals you set.

The journey to become a more confident woman never ends. You cannot stay at the top of your game unless you continue to grow. You should always be open to criticism and willing to learn new skills that will enhance your capabilities. This means that you must be willing to attend every possible seminar, meet-up or networking opportunity you can attend. I often learn the most at the events where I didn’t expect to learn anything.

What goal are you focusing on right now? I hope you’re making it a POWERFUL day.
