The Confidence Gap →
#work life balance
Evidence shows that women are less self-assured than men, and that to succeed, confidence matters as much as competence. Here’s why, and what to do about it.
I identify with so much in this article, and I think all women need to read it.
"Too many young women I think are harder on themselves than circumstances warrant. They are too often selling themselves short. They too often take criticism personally instead of seriously. You should take criticism seriously because you might learn something, but you can’t let it crush you. You have to be resilient enough to keep moving forward, whatever the personal setbacks and even insults that come your way might be. That takes a sense of humor about yourself and others. Believe me, this is hard-won advice I’m putting forth. It’s not like you wake up and understand this. It’s a process."
