When it comes to showing up in the world there is a movement called “Authenticity” that is forcing itself upon almost every woman seeking change. Part of the movement involves us as women to embrace change and be transparent with ourselves in order to show up in an impactful and meaningful manner.

The role that most women are being called to is a new form of leadership that I call Lead-her-ship.  This forces each and every woman to remove their limiting beliefs and embrace their greatness, all while leading the next woman to the water. This forces each woman to be the change. This forces each and every woman to unplug from any dogmas, associations and lackluster activities and motives.

That is the disciplined Lead-her…

She knows when to show up and how

She shares her wisdom

She is free

She takes responsibility

She steps up to the plate

She demands respect and gives it

She watches her language and guards her conversation

She believes in investing in herself

She has faith and a vision

She is focused and determined

She is willing to say NO and she is willing to share


Are you a disciplined Lead-her?

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”  Mark Twain (1835-1910)

    Hello Lucinda,

    I stumbled upon your site from a comment you left over at Marie Forleo.

    I love your empowering post! Especially the last line: Willing to say NO. I’m still working on that one! I’ve found myself saying Yes to things that I really don’t want to do.

    Now, I’m starting to evaluate whether a project/event/activity will further my goals and make me happy. If not, NO will be my favorite word.

      Thanks for commenting Jennifer.
      I am glad that you are assessing your distractions, this way you are not caught up in doing something unproductive because of Shiny Object Syndrome.
