Women in Leadership

Any of us can fear failure. It is not a condition that only women face, men do too and so do children. As a matter of fact, our fear of failure could very well have started sometime in childhood. For most of us, that means we have carried it the bulk of our lives. If you have a fear of failure how do you cope with it? Are you afraid to speak up even though you know the answer? Do you turn down new opportunities because you are afraid you won’t measure up to expectations? Are you loathe to ask for a raise because you fear you will be turned down?

Life is a funny little thing. We wake up each morning with a plan for the day, the week, the month, maybe the year and some of us for the next five to ten years. Today I woke up, followed my usual Friday routine – breakfast, gym and email. Then it hit me that I would be dropping off my daughter with her uncle who works in a nearby town. The ironic part for me was that his office is across the street from the apartment complex that I lived in almost ten years ago when I first moved to Atlanta. That got me thinking about what my life was like while I lived in that apartment. I started thinking about how I came to Atlanta to do my internship with CNN.

We remember our choice to marry and to whom; we remember our first job and what lead us to it; we remember our first drink of alcohol; we might forget our third lover and our second lover but we will always remember our first and last. The majority of our choices simply evaporate into invisible vapor like the morning dew.
