1.  What is your definition of women empowerment?

For me women empowerment is knowing who you are, knowing what you want, understanding your purpose and your strengths and bringing it all together to contribute to creating a better you and impacting those around you. An empowered woman first and foremost understands her position in the world and lives from a place of depth driven by an unwavering commitment to uplift herself and those around her.

Leadership Tip #5 : With Trust And Perseverance To A Turnaround

Leaders can draw many lessons from the 2017 World Cup success of Slovenian National Handball Team, when they managed a comeback from a 8 goals deficit to win the bronze medal game. But many did not believe in the possibility of a comeback. It was very important to maintain trust in the possibility of success and with great perseverance take advantage of every, even the smallest, step forward.

Coach Veselin Vujovic very picturesquely described this: "I believed in the medal three months ago, but during the game I got lost. Not in a way that I didn't know what to do, I was disappointed, but I knew that I must not give up. From every detail we tried to draw optimism, it was as if we rescued a man out of water and gave him artificial respiration. Slowly he came to and started breathing - then we started running again all over the court and scoring goals."

Turning point is perfectly described by the story of transformation of a caterpillar into a butterfly. Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a butterfly. Coach Vujovic's historic motivational speech encouraged his players to give everything they had and to play like the world is about to end. And for the last 10 minutes the Slovenians played as in a dream, in a real collective flow and won with a score of 31:30.

Next time you will be running out of energy for the final ascent to the finish, surrounded by doubts about your ability to accomplish the task, or when you will be considering quitting because of the obstacles, remember the following saying: "When you have gone so far that you can’t manage one more step, then you’ve gone just half the distance that you’re capable of, " and persevere steadily with confidence in a good outcome.

 

Be persistent.

 

 

This month's thought-provoking snippet

The theory of Happiness

Happiness is something that everyone craves for but very few are able to attain. As simple as it is to define, it is equally difficult to achieve it. This is because people often associate it with people and things. Happiness is something that begins and ends with you. Only those who realize this shall be able to attain true happiness.

Aristotle’s Philosophy about Happiness

Aristotle was one such philosopher who wrote at length about happiness. He believed that happiness depends on our own self. As per him, happiness is the main purpose of human life. He stated that happiness is a goal in itself and that it depends on virtue. However, Aristotle’s virtues are more individualistic rather than being typically social virtues.

As per Aristotle, a truly happy life needs the fulfillment of many conditions such as being physically and mentally fit. He has presented the theory of happiness in one of his most influential works, Nicomachean Ethics. This theory of Aristotle holds relevance even in today’s scenario. As per him, happiness is the end that meets all the needs. He states that almost everything we desire, be it good relationships, money, success or power is because we believe that these will make us happy. This is to say that everything else is just a means towards attaining happiness and happiness is an end in itself.

Happiness in a Relationship

Many people associate happiness with money and several others associate it with relationships. What they do not understand is that they can never truly be happy in a relationship if they are not happy with themselves. Relationship problems have been growing rapidly and the main reason behind this is that we expect too much from the other person. We expect them to make us feel happy. We feed our brain with lies such as, ‘we shall be happy if our partner buys us this dress’ or ‘we shall be happy if our partner plans a surprise for us’. The problem is not just with couples. It is the same with every relationship be it a parent-child relationship, brother-sister relationship or friendship.

Here are a few ways to help develop healthy and happy relationships:

  1. Take Care of Yourself

Take good care of yourself. Do not give priority to the other person over yourself and let him do the same. If you give too much and do not get anything in return you are creating a recipe for disappointment.

  1. Take Initiative

If you want to go somewhere then plan it yourself. Do not wait for your partner or parent or child to take you there. Tell them you would love it if they come along. However, if they refuse do not get disheartened. Continue with your plan.

  1. Give Space

It is essential to give space to your partner and demand your personal space in a relationship to build a healthy relationship.

Conclusion

We set unrealistic expectations from other people in our life and believe that if they truly love us they would act in a certain manner. This is absolutely wrong. This only harms the relationship rather than doing any good. It needs to be understood that the only person who can make you feel truly happy is you.
