According to the World Economic Forum, the gender gap won’t close completely until 2186. That’s 169 years until we achieve true equality for women. With such a sobering statistic, you can see why the International Women’s Day team decided on “Be Bold For Change” as this year’s theme: We ain’t gonna close that 169 year gap any faster by quietly waiting for change to happen! This week’s post is about being BOLD in your life, because change happens one person at a time. Each of us can make a difference – by aspiring to reach our own potential, each in our own unique way. Being bold for change starts with you!
A commitment to this is not doing it all in one big bang over night, it is about small incremental actions that lead you in the direction you choose. It is not that you have to sprint there, walk slowly, enjoy the journey.
Walt Disney, Zig Ziglar and probably a whole host of others have said “If you can dream it you can achieve it” Right on people! Woo hoo! Oh yeah! Let’s dream BIG and go forth and ACHIEVE!

Today’s post is not about the magic of dreaming; it’s about the magic of working hard and resilience.
