Aspire to Inspire before You Expire

This is a comment in response to a post on forbes,

"Sheryl Sandberg's 'Lean In' More Aspirational Than Inspirational:"


          "For many women, taking workplace advice from Sheryl Sandberg, who made $30 million in 2011, is like taking budget shopping advice from Gwyneth Paltrow's GOOP--where a $471 Stella McCartney dress is a top-pick."

              Swallowing the pill can be understandably hard but the only quick way to really  benefit from modeling success in your own life is to observe and learn from the other person and replicate or try to incorporate skills , habits and lessons that may help you. Human beings were hardwired to learn through imitation. Humans learn best by imitating others. You learned to stand, walk, run and talk through modeling others. Many people take these complex skills for granted, but it’s through the wonderful powers of modeling that we all possess them. If a women chooses to perceive someone like Sheryl as her admirable role model then taking that challenging first step is definitely worth the rewards of being able to walk in her footsteps.

The Empowered Woman 
by Sonny Carroll 

The Empowered Woman, she moves through the world 
with a sense of confidence and grace. 
Her once reckless spirit now tempered by wisdom. 
Quietly, yet firmly, she speaks her truth without doubt or hesitation 
and the life she leads is of her own creation. 

She now understands what it means to live and let live. 
How much to ask for herself and how much to give. 
She has a strong, yet generous heart 
and the inner beauty she emanates truly sets her apart. 
Like the mythical Phoenix, 
she has risen from the ashes and soared to a new plane of existence, 
unfettered by the things that once that posed such resistance. 

Her senses now heightened, she sees everything so clearly. 
She hears the wind rustling through the trees; 
beckoning her to live the dreams she holds so dearly. 
She feels the softness of her hands 
and muses at the strength that they possess. 
Her needs and desires she has learned to express. 
She has tasted the bitter and savored the sweet fruits of life, 
overcome adversity and pushed past heartache and strife. 

And the one thing she never understood, 
she now knows to be true, 
it all begins and ends with you.
