    Hi bSmart ladies and women who are new to this community!

    I wanted to share my own follow-up to "Chapter 1: The Inner Critic" from 'Playing Big: Practical Wisdom for Women Who Want to Speak Up, Create, and Lead.'

    For years, my inner critic was:

    3. Ostensibly, the voice of reason.
    4. The voice of 'You aren't Ready Yet'

    And to be honest, I'm still not sure if I'm being strategic or with taking additional and thorough preparations with my goals. For example, with bSmart, I didn't go out and tell the world I created an online mentorship and networking community. Instead, I've spent 5-6 years getting feedback on the technology and programs to figure out the best way to offer this to women.

    In some respects, this aligns with Tara's (the author) chapter on leaping, but at times I wondered if I've held myself back. For example, should I be fundraising instead of self-funding? Should I be paying for PR and marketing?

    It's hard to know whether you're being strategic or holding yourself back by requiring more preparation, more education, more crossing of t's and dotting of i's.

    What do the women in this community think is an appropriate balance for leaping versus being prepared and strategic?

    Are women in particular holding themselves back either from nature or nurture by being over-prepared for their goals?

    What "Inner Critic" voice do you identify with the most?

    1. Harsh, rude, mean
    2. Binary
    3. Ostensible, the voice of reason.
    4. The voice of 'You aren't Ready Yet'
    5. The voice of 'You aren't good at math / negotiating / technical stuff."
    6. The voice of body-perfectionism
    7. The tape.
    8. A broken record.
    9. Irrational but persistent
    10 The one-two punch.
    11. The inner critic may take inspiration from critical people in your life.

    To get the conversation started, I'm tagging Michelle Hoppe-Long Amanda Mary Bemis Anna Silverman Jessica Li Ursula Choi Diane Im Angelina Eimannsberger Amanda Sannella Gwendolyn Crafts Amanda Wowk Anne Whiting Yirou Yu Tracy Kim Jacqui Gabriella Bower Nina Wanda Schell Gonzalez Courtnie Weber Lilly Pianin

    Hi everyone, today’s topic is #empowerment!
    Please stop and think for a moment on who empowers you and why you are empowered by that person. Try to use that “why” to yourself and empower others around you!

    I recently joined a fitness program called Orangetheory Fitness and it is so hard but so fun. If you don’t know what Orangetheory Fitness is, it’s basically just an hour of high intensity interval training on the treadmill, rowing machine, and floor (strength training). Side note: highly recommend!!

    So, in today’s class, the treadmill portion of sprinting and walking was like torture. Today was a “power” day, and it’s basically like the normal intensity times two.

    There were so many times that I wanted to take a break and just walk it, but the minute the coach said things like “You’ve got this!” or “Come on, you can do it!” or “Just a little more, push yourself!”, I immediately felt the push of support by her few words and ran it out. It wasn’t even a whole speech of making me believe in myself that I could sprint or run just a little longer. It was literally 3 to 6 words that helped me power through, push through, and believe in myself.

    These short phrases of support really do influence you and your mindset.

    That’s why I would like to ask all of you to just say a few words of support to anyone today. It could be your friend, your mom/dad/sister/brother/cousin, anyone-- and just support them on their journey on whatever they are dealing with. It doesn’t need to be a long sentimental speech, but just something that could lift and boost their mood. Take action and show your support because they will definitely appreciate it. Although it may not seem like a lot, it does really make a difference!

    Hi bSmart ladies!

    In today’s post, I want to dedicate and appreciate my 4 year old cousin, Io! I know that most female role models are mostly older than us, but something so simple about my baby cousin struck me and I wanted to share it with you ladies!

    Around last week my mom asked my cousin what she wanted to be when she grows up. And in less than a second, she responds “I want to ride horses,” AKA an equestrian. I was surprised when she answered that because I assumed she wanted to be a doctor or a nurse since she plays with her toy medical set a lot. Also, this girl has never even ridden a pony or a horse before, but she was so sure that she wanted to ride horses when she’s older.

    I remembered this moment after doing a core value training on vision. Our exercise consisted of explaining our vision for ourselves and others in the perspective of ourselves and also in the perspective of a man. To my surprise, I had two completely different answers, with the man’s perspective being much more assertive and confident. I thought of my cousin’s answer after this exercise because she was so sure of what she wanted to be, what her vision was for her future. I realized it was because she’s a child that is so certain of what she likes and what she doesn’t like, whether it be she likes broccoli, doesn’t like peas, or it’s that she really loves horses. She has no fear of what others will say about her, no worries of judgment due to stereotypes of being a girl, and also is and can solely be worried about knowing what she likes and doesn’t like.

    Therefore, I would like you guys to just for a moment imagine yourself as a child--no worries about college debt, no stress from doing well in school, no worries about the judgment you may face from stereotypes on your point of view, NOTHING. Just ask yourself plainly, what do I like and what do I dislike?

    As a kid, plain and simple, I wanted to be a singer when I was older. I’m curious to what you guys wanted to be when you grew up, so please feel free to comment!

    Hi bSmart ladies!

    Who’s interested in becoming healthy and also getting great skin? As one of my goals for this year was to live a healthier lifestyle, I’ve gathered some tips regarding the “diet.” I’m not referring to fad diets, but instead the food that we eat on a daily basis! Here are some tips that will help us reach the healthiest version of ourselves while also bettering our skin!

    1. Replace soda/high-sugar drinks with fruit infused water/sparkling water
    -Sometimes thirst can be mistaken as hunger & replenishing our bodies with water also is said to help our skin glow, so drink up!
    -TIP: Use frozen fruit as an ice alternative.
    2. Eat foods that have high sources of antioxidants
    -These include strawberries, blueberries, walnuts, blackberries, and more.
    -Antioxidants supposedly slow the aging process, detoxify the body, and fight against free radicals.
    3. Replace animal milk with nut or rice milks
    -Although there are benefits of animal milk, such as bone and brain development, animal milk does have hormones that could produce excess oil and thus, acne.
    -If you are interested in calorie counting-- nut milk, such as almond milk, also has lower calories.
    4. Add chia seeds
    -Chia seeds are full of health benefits: high in fiber, rich in antioxidants (amazing for skin!), and a great source of omega-3 fatty acid. They also keep you fuller longer because the seeds expand up to 10 times their size when in liquid.
    -TIP: Add chia seeds to smoothies, salads, oatmeal, and also try a chia seed pudding!
    5. Drink lemon water the first thing you do in the morning
    -It helps keep your digestive system on track, good source of antioxidants, and helps your immune system from its vitamin C.
    -NOTE: Celebrities like Miranda Kerr and Gwyneth Paltrow do this as part of their daily routine.

    I would love to know your tips for healthy eating, so please comment them down below!
