Women between the ages of 18-25 are 60% more likely to limit there success more than men. Women between the ages of 25-45 are 70% more likely to limit there success more than men .
WHY!? Researchers say its because of financial reasons , education and skills and life circumstances that cause women to limit there suceccss.
Women between the ages of 18-25 often go threw a research phase in there education ,meaning during this age period women often experiment in there careers and education.This is the stage of life when we question ourselves is this the right degree,or we began to change our mind in the career place and discover new hobbies,talents and skills and we began new adventures in the professional world and we can sometimes gain opportunities or loose them. This is normal because its our developmental phase and we all go threw it. The bad thing is if you bounce around to much lets say every 1yr or 6months you may limit yourself on the valuable skills you can learn if you stay at a minimum of 2yrs.
As a woman we all are guilty of putting others before us family and friends,always taking care of others needs. When we do this and not put our career first we often get passed over for management positions and promotions.
All age groups get affected by life circumstances. Forinstance getting married,having kids or having to deal with health issues. More than 78% of us make excuses and then life and age passes us over and opportunities that were once there are no longer available.
Many of us get hit with the financial issue and burdens of life. When you don’t have enough income to take training courses,finishing your degree or having the opportunity to go to college or secondary school. College is expensive and many women can’t afford it and we often get over looked for certain positions or opportunities because we lack the funds to skill our needs to advance in the work place.
My advice to everyone is take your opportunities at any age. Make a goal plan and a vision board and pray. Take a risk because you may be dead or too old ,you may regret it if you don’t. We all can’t go to ivey league college but there are cheap skill advancement programs all over and places that offer on the job training and education. There are alternative schools and free education communities. Get a mentor and learn. Educate yourself online,read books,go to the library and take advantage of government programs. And once again pray. Don’t limit your success for anyone GOD has a plan for all of us ask GOD for the instructions.
Life is a new beginning!
