Men and women who become successful break out of the mold of conformity. These people see the bigger picture in their home and social life, but also in their life at work. At work, these people are willing to try new projects, take some risks, and meet problems head-on. Average people tend to be more passive in their attitudes and they take a "come what may" attitude. Breaking out of the mold of doing things the way they have always been done is generally more difficult for women.
Many women try to please everyone and play it safe. Women are conditioned to play certain roles far more than society realizes. The truth is that women are people who are extremely interested in living rewarding and meaningful lives. Women are often perceived by themselves and others in unrealistic and stereotyped ways. Girls are taught from childhood to act certain ways. Some girls are uninterested in competing against boys, choosing rather to stay in the background. Girls are often taught to be passive so they don't try to become all they are capable of being.
You can be positive, confident, and courageous as a woman and live a more meaningful life. Don't wait for society to advance because if you do you will have a long wait. Remember, what happens to you is up to you. Focus on raising your level of awareness about yourself and realize that the possibilities in your life are endless.
