You are your own star. The things that make you one, is an immense belief in yourself. Why do we women get shaken when an untoward situation arises. To deal with this we got to understand ourselves first.
* You are a woman
* We are strong and don’t know it.
* We give birth thru so much pain.
* We educate ourselves to impart knowledge to the next generation .
* We make the next generation .
* Most of us start a family by leaving our parents home , that itself a new beginning.
* We constantly learn so that we can teach.
This is, by far, enough to give you your sense of self worth. When others ask you what do u do ? Don’t get embarrassed. I feel very confident to tell them, I’m now a full time MOM . That, anyways feels like a 28 hour job with no pay ….but that feeling of knowing that your heart is full when you go to bed is unbeatable.
Nowadays…people seem to think it’s all about achievement. They mentally rate you .You can be an expert in a certain field, but at an interview most of us get intimidated by the other good looking candidate. It’s sad, how ever so often, looks overtake academics . Someone once said ” talent can’t be spelt without T & A (Tits and ass )
To beat this ladies, the only weapon is called confidence.
When I went for a job interview for Associate Director Sales, with one of the leading hotels, my hair was dyed orange.
I had to shoot for an ad campaign for a leading hair stylist at that time. I was in a real bad situation considering the time of events. When I arrived into a room full of formally dressed women …I got their eyes rolling. As my turn arrived , orange hair neatly braided up, the GM stared at me for about 3 minutes that seemed like an hour. That’s when I decided to wear my armour of confidence. After the relevant questions and qualifications review, he gently asked me about the hair . Still wearing the confidence, i smiled and said it will be normal in 2 days when my shoots was completed.
2 weeks Iater I landed the job with hardly any F&B background ..but was so willing to learn and confidence at its best, that I was hired .
So don’t ever forget this YOU ARE YOUR OWN LEADING LADY.
Confidence & being well groomed is a winning combination always.
