Today, women actively strive for a successful life in its various manifestations. Be it family or career, education or love relationships. Most representatives of the fair sex agree on one thing: real happiness lies not in the amount of money in the account, but in the ability to find harmony between work and personal life.

Movement is life… In our case, happy!

One of the most important strategies for achieving balance between a successful career and a prosperous personal life is an optimistic attitude and constant action. Did something go wrong? Do not stop! Do it differently. Think about what other option is there to overcome the obstacle that has arisen. The main thing is to always move towards your goal. This is exactly what our expert thinks.

Of course, such purposeful representatives of the fair sex, in the pursuit of happiness, experience constant stress, which is primarily associated with the fear of solving new problems. Therefore, in order to create a stable basis for yourself to move towards a better life, you should follow some principles and remember your values.

Two important principles of a successful woman

Principle #1

First of all, it is worth noting that the word “success” has an abstract meaning: we cannot touch it or hold it in our hands. And therefore, everyone has their own understanding of this word. For some, success is a house in the village, but for others it is an ongoing journey around the world. But to achieve any desired goal you need funds, so it is important to be able to earn money. Or rather, have a profession, skill or favorite activity that will allow you to generate regular income.

Principle #2

Financial planning skills. Any income can be spent in a few hours. And, conversely, with proper planning, with a fairly modest income, you can live comfortably. Monetary room for maneuver can only be considered the difference between earned income and all obligatory payments. We start from it. Next, it is better to put 10 to 20% of the remaining amount into an investment or savings account. And only what is left can be spent.

Theory without practice is dead

There are several ways to increase your financial potential and achieve monetary independence from loans, men or life situations. When dealing with economic turbulence, it is important to feel comfortable, no matter which direction it comes from. And for this you need to have independent income, which needs to be constantly increased.

Plan for yourself the amount of annual income growth and try to stick to it. Ask for salary indexation at work, monetize a hobby, or find other additional income. Constant income growth will insure you against the effects of inflation and will not allow you to stop achieving a more comfortable quality of life.

In addition, it is important to pay attention to your emotions and perception of a particular task. You can’t constantly do something by stepping over yourself. And it’s not about laziness at all. Rather, if work or its individual criteria (boss, colleagues, premises…) influence you destructively, and you feel that you have no desire to complete the planned tasks with full dedication, you urgently need to change something. You cannot spend time in an uncomfortable environment, because it gradually destroys a person. Sometimes, just going on a long-planned vacation is enough to change your surroundings. But if the thirst for change does not go away, then you can think about changing your job or even profession.

Don’t be afraid of this. You can start with less money. It is important to remember: by doing what you love, you will find spiritual harmony. Because we have one life and we need to live it with the maximum amount of positive emotions. The same approach applies to time. This is the only limited resource in our lives. Sometimes it is worth neglecting money in order to spend precious minutes with loved ones and recharge with the warmth of communication for new achievements.

Welcome by clothes?

Statistics show that most women have problems with self-esteem, which results in them constantly worrying about the impression they make. Girls who strive to succeed in their careers try to limit themselves so as not to seem frivolous and irresponsible. This also applies to stereotypes regarding appearance.

I remember when I defended my PhD thesis, my supervisor asked me to hide my hair and put on glasses, because the image of a bright blonde did not correspond to the image of a research assistant. At first I was offended, and then I basically went to the defense with my hair down.

The main thing is to be yourself and not try to fit into a mold. If you are confident in your skills and knowledge, then no stereotypes are scary for you. It will just take a little longer for some to perceive you correctly. But that’s just their problem.

The key secret of successful women is the ability to find harmony between material and spiritual values.

Women who achieve success in different areas of life strive to develop professionally and be financially stable, but at the same time maintain satisfaction and happiness within themselves. When conquering a new peak, look back and listen to yourself: are you comfortable, are you feeling good at this peak? Is it good for your loved ones when you are there? If the answer is yes, feel free to move forward, but if some nuances arise, then you need to adjust your reality and continue to boldly move towards your goal.
