Successful Women Do These 10 Things Daily
Whether you are a stay-at-home mum or have a career to balance alongside motherhood, you have your hands full and probably think "success" is out of your reach.
But we all measure success differently, and it's not about perfection - it's about being happy and feeling in control of your life - at least as much as you can be with kids around!
This can be achieved with good everyday habits, so here's a list of ten things that successful women have in common.
1. They ask for help
Successful women have a good team backing them up. Whether it's a spouse, a friend or a trusted colleague, successful women are not afraid to rely on others.
2. They choose their battles
We can do anything, but we can't do everything and a successful woman knows this well. Prioritising what's important - and leaving some things aside - is key.
3. They believe in themselves
Yes, we all have our moments of doubt - we're only human after all. But, deep down, successful women know that they always do their best.
4. They take care of themselves
You know how on an aeroplane the instructions are to put your own oxygen mask on first before helping anyone else? Accomplished women know that you can't help anyone if you're not in good shape yourself. Looking after themselves, exercising and eating well is important to them.
5. They embrace imperfection
Striving for perfection all the time can sap energy, while accepting imperfections can be liberating. Successful women are more efficient and effective just because they are able to embrace the imperfections that daily life is full of.
6. They celebrate the little things
Life is full of small wins: whether it's that you finished a report before the deadline or a cup of tea while it's still hot! Taking a little time out to notice these moments and celebrate them can give us the energy we need to continue.
7. They don't compare themselves to others
We each have our own challenges and our own strengths - comparing ourselves to others does no one any favours. Instead, focusing on our own strengths and weakness can lead to success.
8. They don't cry over spilt milk
We all make mistakes. Successful women accept their mistakes and try to learn from them.
9. They know how to say "no"
Life is busy and full of conflicting activities: saying "yes" to everything is never possible. Being able to say "no" and focusing on a few things can make all the difference for successful women.
10. They don't let their period hold them back
