Personal empowerment is a growing interest in a burgeoning self-help society, increased technology allowing women the leisure to address the direction of their lives and question the old behaviors that have interfered with personal and economic success.
Multimillionaire Vickie Milazzo is the proof in the pudding, her formula based on “5 Promises” and “10 Feminine Forces” designed for women who may be stalemated in their careers or disappointed with the direction their lives have taken.
Trained as an RN, when Milazzo’s chosen career path failed to ignite her passion in a meaningful way, she determined a plan of action that she has faithfully, and successfully, followed and hopes to pass along in these pages.
The 5 Promises are specific daily affirmations that form the groundwork of the plan, having to do with decision, attitude, deliberation, commitment and belief in the self. But the crux of all is a passion for the chosen path, a core element in maintaining a purposeful pursuit of the goal.
Personal anecdotes, specific journaling, and goal-oriented steps encourage daily affirmations that are the cornerstone of progress toward a stated goal, reinforced chapter by enthusiastic chapter. For those who have difficulty with the details of such accomplishments, this book is a step-by-step guide, each chapter increasing the “can-do” tempo and the author’s own natural enthusiasm - all in service to defining attainable goals and reawakening that early joy in daily living that is eroded by disappointments or failures.
Make no mistake, Milazzo is a saleswoman, but she believes wholeheartedly in her product: the team leader cheering her troops on, addressing any problem areas with an eye to solutions, a consistently positive attitude toward conflict resolution, removing any obstacles to success. Integrity, authenticity, endurance and energy are key elements, the language sparked with positive phrases and buzz words to energize and empower the willing reader.
Career path-oriented or not, each woman can be the CEO of her own life, broadening personal horizons and embracing her potential, tapping into the inner resources to change the template; but it is necessary to take action. That is exactly what is intended in Inside Every Woman. The language may be too Type A for some, but all can benefit from reassessing options, responding to the author’s call to change.
