One thing that I love about traveling is the ability to meet new people. Usually, I travel on my own, as I am a “free” traveler let’s say, although most they will describe me as “demanding” traveler. I want to have my own agenda and to-do list, of course, few friends who they know me can travel with my, along my terms and conditions rule book, or if someone like me joins me, as I say teasing my friends!!

Let us inspire younger women, our daughters, our nieces the tomorrow women leaders! As a coach, i have worked with youngsters and still work under my NGO MELISELLI FOUNDATION. These young women face more challenges that we did at their age. They need empowerment and motivation to keep moving forward and boost themselves with strong confidence and awareness.

Being a life success coach, a single mom and a woman entrepreneur one of my favorite topics is women empowerment and it is one of my main coaching topics. I have women clients in coaching, friends, associates almost in all around the world, in Slovenia, Austria, Greece, England, U.S., Bermuda, Lebanon, Israel, Bahrain, Switzerland, Scotland, Australia, Italy, Dubai and of course my hometown Cyprus! All those women are in influence positions in their companies, others are entrepreneurs, founders, politicians and as you can understand they are all powerful women. It is not an easy task to be the successful professional and a woman. Sorry, gentlemen but that is true. I am not feminist who doesn’t recognize men’s value but I do believe that still in 2017 women are not treated totally fair compared to men. There is sexual harassment, lower paychecks etc. This is not my main issue with this article though. I like to be fair by mentioning that there is sexual harassment in men’s world too. My observation which is what I would like to share with you today is that despite our language, our color, our nation women faces the same challenges everywhere on the planet. Have you observed that most powerful women are single or divorced? I had a discussion the other day with a coaching client of mine here in New York asking me “How can I decide if I want to be a mother? Do I have the time for that?” These questions that she had are the most common questions for a woman, who wants to have a career and usually applies in the big cities, as in islands like mine usually people get married till the age of 30 and family is their priority. Still, though they have the same challenges, they feel stuck sometimes between the must and need.

Of course, we have too many divorces too, unfortunately. Still, though they have the same challenges, they feel stuck sometimes between the must and need to. Find the woman who inspires you!

Can we have everything in life? Career and a happy family? Can we be single parents with a successful career too? You are reading my article I guess you are already successful people and aware of your needs and wants. My belief is that we can combine everything as long as we are aware of our abilities and our priorities. If we don’t have clarified our priorities and what brings enjoy in our life; then we will be surrounded all the time by disappointments. “Disappointment is the non-fulfillment of a wish” as I define, is that wish really able to exist in real or we just find excuses for ourselves? It’s like when people say to me “I am not ready, it needs to be perfect”. My answer to that is: “Perfection is just another excuse for not moving forward”. Life is full of challenges, the magic though is how we manage these challenges.

It is highly crucial for our lives to be aware of our strengths and weaknesses then we will know what we want and ca have from life. We need to find that within us, you can’t find it through your relationship, your career or your family. You built up strong self and the rest will follow. Strong women is not necessarily CEO in huge companies, strong women can be like my Mum who she was working in the fields to grow vegetables and be able to provide me education, strong woman is YOU, every day when you wake up and you see the wrinkles on your face, those wrinkles its YOU, its your memories, your laughs and cries. We don’t need any other to applause us but US. I have faith in women because I was raised by a strong one and I see everyday strong women around me. It makes me sad and more motivated, when I see women really beautifully, intelligent with so many potentials and their only thought is to find a partner. Ladies, there are so many things out there, which are waiting for you to happen. As I was saying in a session the other days a great way to overcome o break up or loneliness is to stay focus on YOU. Think about it. Women that get divorced in any age, in the beginning, we get panicked, cry wondering how are going to survive, the kids Blah blah yes of course and it’s totally normal. We all have right to feel bad and cry sometimes is quite useful actually. Although ladies and gents, I have the rule of 3! Which means you are “allowed” to grief, feel sorry, for 3 hours or 3 days maximum 3 months! Then you have no more excuses, it’s enough time to start over and guess what? Now, you have the opportunity to do things that you always wanted to do but maybe your partner didn’t agree so he was holding you back. Now, it is the time for YOU. Love yourself as you feel that you deserve to be loved. Treat yourself often even with a cup of hot tea. Women that get divorced in any age, in the beginning, we get panicked, cry wondering how are going to survive, the kids Blah blah yes, of course, we will panic and it’s totally normal.

It’s all about you. Actually, the only way to have a successful career, the lifestyle we desire and this goes for men too it’s to have the best partner ever YOU. Having a great relationship, career, love, money and whatever is important to you is to have the best relationship first with YOU, then believe me the rest will follow. We do attract what we feel that we deserve. Let’s revalue our “deserve” definition. It’s a game and we control that game. You are not alone.
