Activate your feminine energy and achieve greater success in your career
Today the world has become more aware and is being educated of gender differences and how to attain equality without compromising on these differences for either gender. For centuries, women were unable to speak up and really participate in economic activities, owing to the view that their inherent nature of nurture and care made them too ‘soft’ to be able to engage in the work required. With the revolution of the internet and better modes of media and communication, a conversation was started on how a woman’s femininity is not a barrier, but a boon to the modern workforce. While the conversation has reached a point where it is being discussed worldwide, and the opportunities for women are constantly on the rise, it is also important for women to actually understand how their feminine characteristics can help them achieve greater success.
Why is it important to speak about femininity?
Due to long-prevailing practices that oppressed the growth of women in the workplace, it has somewhere become ingrained in the minds of women that their femininity must be hidden away. Subconsciously or consciously, women force themselves to emulate the characteristics exhibited by their male counterparts, as they believe that that will help prove their worth in a previously male-dominated, competitive world. This leads to an imbalance in their true identities and in the identity they adopt to keep up with the world they have been used to seeing. This imbalance takes a toll on women’ physical, emotional and mental health, leading to early burn-out and the subsequent inability to cope with further pressure.
At Illuminations, we believe that as the times are changing and we have been empowered by technology to be able to speak about these changes, there is no better time than now for women to start focusing on using innate feminine characteristics as strengths, and viewing them as accelerators of success, rather than as obstacles to growth and achievement of goals.
