EP145 Are You Willing To Do What It Takes

Every day, we hear from women with incredible dreams. Dreams of achieving big things, big goals. Dreams of making an impact and connecting with thousands of people. The dream of doing more and making an impact on the world around you is a huge endeavor! 

But what does it really take to achieve these big goals? What does it take to become the CEO of your company or to grow your business and become a speaker? What does it take to become one of the top 4-percent of powerhouse women leaders?  

Last week, I was honored to share the stage with several powerhouse speakers, including Hillary Clinton and Rosario Dawson, at the Professional Business Women Association of California’s annual conference to talk about how the top 4-percent of women think. Today, I want to share with you some of the insight I have learned throughout my career of what it really takes to achieve the big goals in your professional career. 


“The scope of your goals are in direct proportion to your willingness to do what is required to reach those goals.” 


Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast: 

  • The missing piece of the equation preventing you from achieving your big goals and dreams. 
  • Determining your willingness to achieve your goals. 
  • The qualities that the top 4-percent of women leaders have that allow them to achieve their goals. 

4 Qualities of the Top 4% of Women Leaders: 

  1. Intentional 
  2. Commitment 
  3. Willing to do the work 
  4. Willing to make sacrifices 

My Challenge to You: 

  • Think about the goal that you say you want. 
  • Ask yourself if you would still want that goal if it took three times as long to achieve it 
  • Ask yourself if you would still want it if it took three times the sacrifice to achieve it.
