Saving Superwoman: Your Success Sanctuary

Many women are juggling so many roles, tasks and responsibilities that we look like Superwoman to others – and we may feel like it ourselves. Yet, we may also be feeling exhausted, overwhelmed and in dire need of time or space to take off the cape, breathe, and feel safe to ask for support, ideas, or even share laughter as we realize that we are in the company of other amazing women.

I found such a sanctuary with two successful fellow superwomen, Life Strategist Lynette Patterson, and Dr. Lisa Van Allen, The Biz Doctor. From our circle of coaching one another, we came together as a trio and realized the power of synergy we created in our “sanctuary.” We could pull back the curtain and share our mistakes, fears, and challenges in the safety of compassionate support. Often we laugh because two, or all three, of us “tripped on our capes” in a similar way, and we each thought it had happened only to us. We also share strategies and resources that we have discovered, or created, that may help each other to move through challenges.

We soon realized that other superwomen could benefit from a “success sanctuary” to catch their breath, regroup, collaborate, strategize, laugh, re-energize and more, to continue to achieve and create success. How could we share the experience that was so helpful to us? Saving Superwoman was born!

See if Saving Superwoman could be your “success sanctuary” by going to SavingSuperwoman.com. While you are there, you can sign up for a free Success Map and check out archived recordings of our weekly 30-minute podcasts. (Our most recent podcast is also in the player to the right of this blog.)

Most importantly, I hope that you take great care of yourself – mind, body and spirit – so you can enjoy your Superwoman success!

May you choose to create a great day as you continue to make a positive difference in the lives you touch!

P.S. We also have men who have shared that they are listening to our podcasts because they want to be Superman or because they want to better support the superwomen in their lives.

Time to Reflect and Project

It’s the end of a year, which is one of the logical times to reflect on the past year’s successes and challenges as well as the lessons we can carry forward. This was the subject of my show on 12/30/09 on www.BlogTalkRadio.com/SPARK , if you’d like to listen.

There are many wonderful resources for this process. I am sharing a few here. If you think that goal-setting or strategic planning don’t fit your style, start with Dr. Lisa Van Allen’s podcasts as she addresses the importance of knowing your style as the starting point of the process so you can adjust or find models to meet your needs.

Next, we can project into 2010 with goals and action steps as well as identifying potential challenges and strategies to overcome them. Among many resources and strategies for this process, in the links below you’ll find lists of thought-provoking questions, a process to gain clarity and direction, approaches to goal-setting and strategic planning that work WITH your natural style, and challenging your negative language and limiting beliefs. If you have a resource or strategy that works well for you, please share it in the comments.
