Topic:  Changes – how to deal with them? Courage, assertiveness, believing in yourself and making mistakes.

Changes, decisions and that overwhelming feeling – I’m not good enough, I can’t do it, I should go back to doing things that are safe.

Sounds familiar?

How to make it easier? How to find and keep your inner strength?

We’ll talk about:

– courage – how it helps you do things with a trembling heart

– assertiveness – which makes you put your needs first

– allowing yourself mistakes and doubts along the way

– tracking down the skills you already possess to help you in the great process of change

When I first decided to turn the world upside down and follow my dreams, I did it because I wanted to be a role model for my daughter to have a woman around her who has the courage to do what she loves in life.

Now I do it for myself.

Every day I face the consequences of my choice: those more and those less pleasant. I will help you find your own way of dealing with them.

About me

It’s been almost a year since I started another time of Great Change. I deal with the fear of failure, the joy of independence, doubts, letting go of control and perfectionism, and I learn to take care of my needs.

What do YOU DO to be SEEN & HEARD?

I take every opportunity to speak up. It helps me a lot when I remember that so many women don’t get a chance to be heard. So I make room for myself and take every opportunity to speak.

What kind of CHANGE you would like to SEE & MAKE?

It is time to stop trying to change women, and start changing the systems that prevent them from achieving their potential.

What kind of CHALLENGES are the most imporant in 2023?

Dialogue, moving away from polarization in favor of looking for what connects us and mutual understanding.

What are the topics that are not publicly spoken, but it definitely should be?

The writer Caroline Criado Perez calls this “default man” thinking: the unquestioned assumption that men are standard, and women the exception.

What would your younger YOU should know?

Trust yourself. Keep being courages, passionate and do what your guts tell you, even if it is corky or others don’t get.
