STEP INTO YOUR PURPOSE
The past year has been most challenging for most of us. I’m sure you often had to remind yourself that these tough times will only make you stronger and more resilient.
This month we celebrate women, and we feature an exciting array of women in this issue.
Women come in different sizes – not to mention forms, shades, styles and shoe sizes. Some walk a mile in high heels, and others love their Crocs. Some don’t know what happens on the sports fields but can score winning goals regularly, while others would rather cheer from the sidelines.
Some are married; some love their single life. Some are academics; some know where to access the best knowledge. Some love to travel the world, others love to spend time at home.
What we all do know is that each of us is unique, with special gifts, and each is on the planet for a reason − once you step into your purpose, your life will become so much more meaningful. And not all leaders are the same: each has his or her own different style – the great leaders among us create other leaders, not followers.
The powerful women we feature this month showcase their talents. They also show that there is no limit to what women can accomplish and that, as Margaret Thatcher said, ‘If you want something said, ask a man; if you want something done, ask a woman.’ They prove that success will follow if you do what you love and that passion is the fuel behind a successful career.
We hope their stories will inspire you to step into your own unique purpose.
