Women leaders have a lot to contend with out there in the world that male leaders don’t—cultural expectations, laws, even violence.
Those external blocks definitely have to be changed!
But what holds most women back more than anything else is their internal blocks.
The subconscious rules and beliefs they’ve internalized that have them stop themselves before they ever come up against any external block.
Have you noticed you stopping yourself?
I definitely know I’ve held myself back at times.
What I’ve found from working with many women business owners is that these internal blocks fall into three categories.
- Mindset—how you see yourself subconsciously as a leader. Do you know you deserve to lead a great team and have your voice heard? Or do you find yourself settling for what’s “good enough?”
- Visibility—how you show up. Do you let yourself speak and write powerfully and consistently in your networking, on stage, and on camera? Are you letting others see the real you? Or are you hiding by trying to do things the “right” way?
- Profitability—this covers all things money. Are you making the kind of money you are capable of and your peers seem to bring in easily? Do you manage it well, or does it seem like you can never get ahead? Do you use your money to grow your impact?
(That’s why I started my MVP Club for women leaders, where we release blocks in those three areas.)
Monday was International Women’s Day.
I did a short video celebrating and talking about how we need more women leaders now, how women hold themselves back in these three areas more than men, and what to do about it.
Watch the video here.
If you have any blocks in any of those three areas, please know this.
You are here for a reason.
You are needed now more than ever.
Because no one can do what you do in the way you do it.
So if you find you are holding yourself back, pleeeeeeease find someone to release those blocks.
You know me. I’m big on using Tapping to get rid of internal blocks, but if Tapping’s not for you please find another modality that works.
You don’t have to be stuck with internal blocks holding you back.
Be the leader that the World needs you to be now.
