I believe we have all heard or discussed what the author is saying below and are familiar with that old adage that women have to feel they know 100% of the job before they go for it but men will go for a job or position if they know 50% of it. Don’t quote me but you get the gist.
“In a 2015 study about why men and women entrepreneurs had different levels of success, one of the biggest things that stuck out is that the men didn’t let failure stop them — they’d try over and over again until something stuck, they got funded and their company became successful. Women were less likely to do that, but those who did had the same measure of success. You are what you believe you are.
“To quote Mary Kay Ash, founder of Mary Kay Cosmetics, ‘Aerodynamically, the bumblebee shouldn’t be able to fly, but the bumblebee doesn’t know that so it goes on flying anyway.”
The article is about timid and reserved women climbing the corporate ladder, however, it is a good read for anyone to boost their confidence and put some tools in their toolbox for success.
