1.  What is your definition of women empowerment?

An empowered woman is a woman in charge of her life. She is independent and proud of who she is and who she will be. She makes decisions for herself and those that depend on her. She does not take this power lightly, since she knows that the outcomes of those decisions influence more than just her life. She is not afraid to walk away from bad situations, bosses or relationships. An empowered woman can take a lot of burden but she doesn’t allow anybody to walk over her and her dignity. Funny, the same is true for empowered men.

 

2. What motivated you to get involved in being inspirational for change?

Doesn’t everybody want to make a difference in the world? I’m fortunate that I found my tool for making a dent in the universe.

Leadership Tip #4 : With Small Steps, Driven By Love, We Can Overcome Big Distances

Just by receiving Ideas for leaders you have shown your intent to develop leadership, dedication to live and work in a way to change yourself and the world for the better. We are probably also connected by role models, such as Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela, among others. It is good to be inspired by great leaders and their breakthrough decisions and actions, but we should also respect the small, daily decisions and actions of many resolute people. Even with small steps, perseverance, and love, we can change ourselves and the world for the better. Ideas for Leaders support this notion, as they are shared weekly and in small doses, so that we can immediately put into life anything we feel is useful.

By observing some of the latest breakthrough companies one might say that the economy of the new dimension will be based on love. This is not about romantic love, but the love of self, of other people, of future generations, and the love of life. Let's bring more love in to our business environments! The thoughts of Jack Hawley from the book »Reawakening the spirit in work« will help us with that:

Remember what love means. High esteem, insight, diligence and reverence. It also means emotions, such as tenderness, attraction, trust, liking, affection. It means activity: friendly actions, helping others, solidarity, cordial acceptance and the like.Success at working with and among people requires collaboration, teamwork, reliability, understanding, tolerance, reciprocity, coherence and solidarity. It calls for trust, caring, mutual assistance, training, encouragement. These are not only the basics of success at work. But also characteristics of love.

Let's start introducing more acts of love to our work: giving, accepting, support and collaboration. Let us be respectful, considerate, helpful, trustful and encouraging to our colleagues.

 

Collaborate with love.

 

 

Thought provoking snippet of May

Why You Need To Learn From Your Mistakes

The most important life lessons we will ever learn will be from the bad decisions we make. Time and experience can be excellent teachers when you actually learn a lesson from your poor decisions. Experience comes from our way of living, understanding and the adjustments we make. It also comes from suffering, agony and the ordeals we are afflicted by.

We need to learn from our mistakes so that we do not run the risk of repeating them. We must develop the wisdom and sense to make good decisions and choices. Good judgment will only develop if you truly learn from your mistakes. Unfortunately, for many people, it takes a few repeats of the same mistake to learn the lesson.

“Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.” - Albert Einstein

I wholeheartedly believe that good judgment comes from experimentation with life. That includes poor decisions and bad judgment to ensure that good judgment might be recognized by a person and will remain a permanent fixture in their lives. If you have a difficult time making decisions or always blame your bad outcomes on others, then you have not learned anything. If you have not learned from anything, you will continue to have bad experiences that will cause you to make more poor judgments. Until you realize that, you will continue to suffer.

Everything we are exposed to in life presents us with another valuable lesson. Not only can you learn from your own experiences, but also the experiences of the people you surround yourself with. Sometimes these can serve as the most meaningful lessons since it allows you to observe behaviors from an objective standpoint.

“Well, we all make mistakes, so just put it behind you. We should regret our mistakes and learn from them, but never carry them forward into the future with us.”

Growth starts as soon as you recognize your mistake and how to prevent it from happening again. Everyone makes mistakes in life, this is normal, but how you learn from them is how you develop your judgment. The only way to prevent making a mistake a second time is to learn. If you don’t, you will be making that same error again and again until you are forced to learn.

“Mistakes are a part of being human. Appreciate your mistakes for what they are: precious life lessons that can only be learned the hard way. Unless it's a fatal mistake, which, at least, others can learn from.
