I do believe we all have the skills to be successful, regardless if you are a man or a woman. But what I see is women, too many times, must carry a double load of responsibilities in life. This holds them back of being successful in business.
When they are young, they must keep an eye on their little brother. I have to be honest, this is what I ask my daughters too, who all are senior to my little son.
When they grow up, they take care of their father, (I do hope) and the rest of their family. Always there is somebody else to take care of. Big sisters never stop to ask how the rest is doing.
The number of women in top positions of most organizations is too small. But how can you become a CEO of a company if you first must take care of everybody else in that same company. You have to be a cold-hearted woman not to see the needs of the others on your way to the top.
Does this mean woman will always lack behind. Will women never become the President of the U.S.A.? No, I do believe the next president will be a black woman. But because there is only one place at the top many others can follow by taking care of themselves more. The world will not come to an end if you decide to think of your needs, your dreams and yourself first.
And please If you are successful, do not forget to tell the world you are behind this success. For some reason the architect of all, forgot to install this loudspeaker in women. Men will claim any success of their department or company. Women prefer to share the honor with others.
Finally, if you do not want to accept a lower pay for the same work done by a man, stop working for a business lead by men. Start a woman’s only business or your own store and give yourself a better place.
I know it’s no Sunday, but I felt I had to share this, if you do not agree please let me know!
