This Women’s Day, Take Control Of Your Life
When we use the term “taking control” it can be something as small as a woman simply leading a conversation or it could be as big as taking control of her life independently. Opening the proverbial door of communication and signaling to the world that she is strong enough to lead a balanced life.
Life is not something that just happens to us. It is something that we need to take control of in order to create the situations and outcomes that we want.
Below mentioned are 3 women who did not hesitate to take the lead in their lives & they have proven their point & how!
Arundhati Bhattacharya is an Indian banker and former Chairman of the State Bank of India. She is the first woman to be the Chairman of State Bank of India . In 2016, she was listed as the 25th most powerful woman in the world by Forbes. She was named the 4th most powerful women in Asia Pacific by Fortune.
She introduced a two-year sabbatical leave policy for the bank’s female employees to use either for maternity or elder care. On Women’s day, she announced free vaccination against cervical cancer to all the bank’s female employees.
Kareena Kapoor Khan
From being a working woman to being a mother, Kareena Kapoor Khan holds many ‘titles’ to her name, but never has she once allowed those titles to come in the way of her personal growth.
“I am a big believer of the fact that women today can do anything they set their minds to. I feel like with each passing year, I see myself doing more and more, and I love it”.
In fact, she even made the first move with Saif Ali Khan to take her love life ahead.
She says, “He will never make the first move. I was the one who kind of pushed all the right buttons, and plus when I made the first move he was like, I can’t believe that Kareena Kapoor is doing this. It was like an entire building has crumbled on his head.”
Let’s not forget that men love confident women. Confident women are attractive. Confident women are ambitious. Confident women go after what they want – and when they want him, that is the best combination of all.
Geeta Phogat is a freestyle wrestler who won India’s first ever gold medal in wrestling at the Commonwealth Games in 2010. She is also the first Indian female wrestler to have qualified for the Olympic Summer Games. She comes from a very small village called Balali, in Bhiwani district, Haryana. Her father Mahavir Singh Phogat, a former wrestler himself and a Dronacharya Award recipient, is also her coach. Her father had gone through a lot of difficulties while training his daughters & going against the stereotype that woman can not be powerful enough. With very minimal facilities, Geeta worked hard to make her country proud & reached to the greatest heights.
So, we’re saying,
Everything you’ve ever wanted is right outside of your comfort zone. All you need to do is step outside of it and begin creating the life you want.
Go ahead, ladies, take the lead.
