“I want it all.” …You’ve either started singing the Queen song or you’re rolling your eyes. But let’s face it – each of us wants it all. As simple as it may seem, the idea of “having it all” is one of the most controversial concepts around, with its own fair share of prejudice. I don’t know a single woman who doesn’t have her own opinion about what it’s like to have it all, or how to have it all, or whether it is possible that they can have it all.
As a successful career girl, I’m sure you have big dreams – but it’s just out of your reach, something that may not be possible, right? We all said we wanted to be an astronaut as children, but that’s a pipe dream, right?
Ok, let’s rewind. Let me make one thing crystal clear – you can have it all. It’s just not possible to wake up one day and find it in your lap. The road to success is paved with a lot of stepping stones, some changes to your thinking, and a willingness to keep going at it day after day. I’m not saying it’s time to cue the Rocky montage; I’m saying it’s time to wake up and decide that you’re going to make an effort, in the big ways and the small, to reach your idea of success.
