Self-doubt is something that we all struggle with but it’s easy to look around and think everyone else feels confident besides me. So you might talk yourself out of volunteering for a new position or you might convince yourself not to give a presentation. It’s really important to just embrace your self-doubt. In fact, studies will show, that when you have a little bit of self-doubt, you’ll actually perform better than if you were overconfident. So you don’t have to wait to eliminate all self-doubt.
For the record, feminism by definition is: “The belief that men and women should have equal rights and opportunities. It is the theory of the political, economic and social equality of the sexes.” I started questioning gender-based assumptions when at eight I was confused at being called “bossy,” because I wanted to direct the plays we would put on for our parents—but the boys were not.
If there is one thing I know for certain, it is that this has to stop. For the record, feminism by definition is: “The belief that men and women should have equal rights and opportunities.

When at 14 I started being sexualized by certain elements of the press. When at 15 my girlfriends started dropping out of their sports teams because they didn’t want to appear “muscly.” When at 18 my male friends were unable to express their feelings.

look upon it as a calling and a passion, not as a job not as something temporary. The third and the most important one, please help others wise. Greatness comes not from a position, but from helping build the future. All of us in positions of power, have an obligation to pull others up. The fourth skill I say is consistency, it is important that the leaders are consistent.

when you accept yourself the way you are, the world recognizes you. It all starts from within. We have this amazing fantasy about life. This is how things should work. This is my plan, it should go as per my plan. If that doesn’t happen, we give up. I never wanted to be on the wheelchair, never thought of being on the wheelchair. This life is a test and a trail, and the tests are never supposed to be easy, so when you’re expecting ease from life, and life gives you lemons,
then you make the lemonade, and then do not blame life for that. It is okay to be scared, it is okay to cry. Everything is okay, but giving up should not be an option. They always say that failure is not an option. Failure should be an option, because when you fail, you get up, and then you fail, and then you get up, and that keeps you going. Embrace each and every breath that you are taking, celebrate your life, live it. Don’t die before your death. Real happiness lies in gratitude, so be grateful, be alive, and live every moment
