Are you a Winning Woman? Sheryl Sandberg Living Through Adversity With Resilience

"The ability to learn is the most important quality a leader can have"

Sheryl Sandberg (COO of Facebook)

If you value empowerment and want to be a more successful businesswoman, wife, mother, sister, colleague, girlfriend or friend, investing time learning about yourself will help you achieve greatness in your life!

Sheryl Sandberg is indeed a winning woman who has conquered it all but has also lived through adversity and heartbreak to bounce back in her life!

Being resilient is one muscle you need to build 

It will support you through any personal challenge in life or help you achieve greater business success.  It’s also a title headline to empower other women Sheryl supports within her Foundation*.

Her inspiring story below, truly resonates with me to continue helping more winning women like you, to live your life more mindfully, powerfully with the understanding to tap into your true potential for life-changing results.

When you learn new skills to feel happier, more confident, how to become resilient, you already have the assets you need when you understand how to tap into the power of your mind, body and energy. It’s the emotional scaffolding you can harness and use when your human spirit is tested.

Life can be hard

Life can be hard sometimes, when you hear sad stories, loss of life on a daily basis, or the time you need strength to push yourself forward with determination, persistence and courage, in the face of doubt or uncertainty. Or feel like giving up or giving in.  Life will throw us curve balls, of redundancy, relationship breakdown, health conditions, losing loved ones when we don’t expect it.  Maybe you are thinking right now, it only happens to other people.

Working as a Self-Transformation Coach I empower clients how to be mindful and resilient. If you wish to be inspired here is my FREE 4 Life-Changing Steps Every Woman Needs to Know, video mini-course including some quick and easy mindfulness coaching exercises to understand where you are right now on a scale of zero to 10 (if you are already practising mindfulness).

Becoming familiar with the way you think, will give you new perspective and awareness to build your resilience muscle. It’s called mindfulness living in the moment, making new conscious positive thoughtful choices for life-changing results. You will think, feel and behave in a new way to approach your personal challenges, business or relationship goals very differently.

What adversity has changed your life?

Adversity happened to me Karen Marshall. I overcome depression, healing a 10-year skin condition without taking medication, working through redundancy at a time my Mum died unexpectedly and a new relationship ended.  Today I have transformed my health, happiness, business approach, relationship success living more mindfully now my resilient muscle is much stronger.  I wouldn’t be the person I am today, or passionate about my business or the Winning Woman Academy without living mindfully and becoming more resilient in my own life.  Today I have the tools, education and understanding to be empathetic to accelerate other women’s lives. My goal for next year is now my mission!

My mission

To empower over a 1000 woman (or men if they are willing to look inside) to love themselves, inside and outside, to feel happier, more confident, resilient, to achieve greater personal happiness, business or relationship success everyone deserves by the end of December 2018!

Leadership belongs to those who take it - Sheryl Sandberg

Sheryl Sandberg’s Inspiring Story

With a net worth over US$1B, due to her stock holdings in Facebook and other companies. In 2012 Time Magazine named her among 100 of the most influential people. She Moved to Silicon Valley in 2001 to join Google Inc. from serving under President Bill Clinton. In 2007 Mark Zuckerberg met Sandberg and thought she was a “perfect fit” for the role of COO she started in 2008.

Sheryl is not only a businesswoman role model, has a loving family and successful career. Unfortunately, her equally successful husband Dave Goldberg sadly died unexpectedly of a severe heart attack in 2015.

Even with enormous grief, Sheryl returned to work after 10 days (In Jewish traditions, the mourning period for a spouse lasts for 30 days). After which, she posted publicly on Facebook, an unfiltered account of her grief-stricken month, attracting more than 74,000 comments to date. Strangers all over the world flooded her Facebook page with tales of their own tragedies and heartbreaks.

She then co-wrote Option B, a partly personal memoir and part practical manual how to withstand catastrophe and grow from adversity.  She renamed her Lean In foundation to the Sheryl Sandberg & Dave Goldberg Family Foundation empowering women to achieve their ambitions and help people build resilience to find meaning in the face of adversity.

As a Self-Transformation Coach who has walked my talk, I also help other Winning Women with the tools to build a more mindful and resilient lifestyle. Also a qualified Health and Well-being Therapist in 5 different interventions. Mentor. Speaker, I understand the mind-body-energy connection and would love to help and accelerate your resilience and mindfulness in 2018.
