Anusha Bhagat, Ph.D. is the founder of “Empower Women” and author of the book, Empowering Women (Wiley, 2016, $34.95). She is a psychotherapist in private practice and also the director of the Empowerment Leadership Program at the Yale School of Management. She is a passionate advocate for women, empowering them to be successful and live more fulfilled lives.
We all read books like this and think we know what we’re talking about, but that’s not the case at all. In the world of Empower Women, Bhagat makes it absolutely clear that there is a lot of grey area in these conversations because even when women of the same gender are on the same page about the importance of empowerment, there always seems to be a lot of room for debate.
Bhagat’s advice is that women, regardless of gender, are not the same. Sure, they may have certain characteristics and needs, but women are just as capable of doing the same things men do, and its their natural way of expressing themselves. We often tend to think that women are supposed to be more emotional, more nurturing, etc. But to Bhagat, all of these “feminine” traits are actually good traits if you want to be successful in life.
For Bhagat, being a woman who wants to be successful is good because it means you’re not afraid of failure. You don’t get intimidated by those who think they have what it takes. You don’t have to be “macho” to succeed. You don’t have to be “hot” to succeed. You don’t have to be “tall” to succeed.
There are many of us who are on the fence about the best way to build up our life in the next life. If you want to start your own business, you dont need to spend a lot of money on a building or computer. You dont have to worry about being a bad boss or a bad woman. If you want to be a real boss and not be a bad lady, you dont need to be a bad mother or a bad husband.
We’re all on the fence about all of these things. But I have to say that I’ve always believed there is a good way to build up your life in the next life. I’ve even believed there is a way to build up your life without spending a lot of money and without a lot of work. I think I can say with confidence that there is a way to build up your life without spending a lot of money and without a lot of work. It’s called self-awareness.
Self-awareness is the ability to acknowledge what you are doing in life and to take control of your life. Now what many people do not understand is that as soon as they say yes to a new hobby, they are also taking on a new skill. This is what I like to call “the deathloop effect”. When I say a hobby, I am not talking about a new skill.
One of the best ways to build up a new skill or lifestyle is to take your time. I am not talking about buying a new car. I am talking about taking your time and doing something that makes you happy. I am talking about not procrastinating.
This is exactly what Bhagat is doing. He has taken control of his life. The problem is, this takes a lot of time. If Bhagat takes this time to go for a walk, he will likely miss his lunch. If he makes it to his lunch hour, he will likely miss his dinner. If he takes his time and enjoys himself, he will likely miss his sleep. He is basically taking his time and making it count.
The main goal of the game is to make him happy, and it’s not a good thing either. When you have a huge task that you can’t make it to the next level, that’s the main goal. That’s why the game has no rule to it. If you are doing something that makes you happy, you want to make it count. But that’s not the main goal.
