I gave my best shot. I didn't make it. I feel that no matter how hard I try now, I wouldn't succeed. The competition, the situation, the efforts, all of them together seem like an unsurmountable challenge. It scares me. I think about my family, their expectations, and it gives me chills.
This feeling is common to many individuals. Yet, many have achieved their dreams despite feeling defeated at a point.
Today, InsideIIM brings to you real-life stories of individuals who overcame obstacles and blazed the trail. Each of the journey you shall find below is unique in its own way. The situations, challenges, and level of difficulty may vary, but one thing remains common - a strong desire to achieve the ambition.
Each of these women’s stories have resonated challenges that women face. However, they stand as an outstanding example of the sheer grit and determination 'the other half of the population' is capable of. It is more important now than ever to recognize female leadership in the boardroom and beyond. Women have been excelling in a wide variety of fields and are no less, often better than men in their professional fields.
To foster conversations about the excellence women possess and the challenges they repeatedly overcome, we, at InsideIIM, are proud to celebrate a Women's Month on our platform, spearheaded by the #SheInspiresMe movement to build a space of appreciation and recognition for women professionals.
Join us in this movement to speak up for women by nominating a woman manager from your network to the #SheInspiresMe movement here and get a chance to win free one-on-one mentorship by experienced professionals.
