Read from the Book

What do you want to be when you grow up? It's a question we are all asked as little girls, and we are encouraged to dream big. Fortunately, today, we can be ballerinas, astronauts, doctors, lawyers, executives, and presidents. But no one ever asks you "how" you're going to get there. No one ever tells you how to overcome the self-sabotaging behaviors that get in your way, kill your confidence, and destroy your dreams. Until now. I may not be an official card-carrying, bra-burning type of feminist, but I believe with every fiber of my being that women are powerful beyond measure, and I have dedicated my career to helping women realize and reach their full professional potential. As a career coach for more than 20 years, I have worked with and listened to hundreds of women share their stories, their challenges, and their insecurities. I recognize that not only are there external obstacles to a woman's success-such as women only making $0.77 on the dollar, the proverbial "glass ceiling", and the inequities that exist in traditionally male-dominated industries-but there are also internal, self-imposed barriers to overcome. Women unknowingly and unintentionally hold themselves back by engaging in sinful, career-limiting, self-sabotaging behavior. The truth is that, as women, we already have so much in our favor. We have the raw materials and a solid foundation composed of intuition, compassion, intelligence, and drive. However, we can also be our own worst enemies. I'll be the first one to admit that sinful behavior can be fun and indulgent, but it can also sabotage your career if you're not careful. As professional women, we commit Deadly Sins every day without even knowing it-and, without realizing the damaging consequences. Here's some good news...despite the description Deadly Sins, none of these behaviors represent permanently debilitating or fatal conditions. Unlike personality, which we know forms by the time we celebrate our fifth birthdays, behavior is learned. And, because it is learned, it can be unlearned. Patterns of thinking can be modified. And, with practice and patience, new behaviors and beliefs can pave new paths to success.
