There are women leaders out there playing the big game.
Are you brave enough to make your leadership claim?
We can all hope and pray, but at the end of the day
You have to lead others out of disarray
A good leader knows when to break the rules
And most leaders are subjected to being ridiculed
But guess what? Leading is hard and not for everyone –
sometimes you’ll feel like the black swan
But if you want to see a change: we must pass the baton.
I lead because I want to believe in change
On many occasions, it leaves me feeling estranged
I have more than 99 failures on my journey
but just like Einstein I’ll find a success deemed worthy
I challenge all my listeners: lead at least once a day
Say what you do and do what you say
I don’t care if you are an elephant or a donkey
Please just make a positive change like Gandhi
Find your own inspiration from history
Is it Joan of Arc who lead a French revolt to victory?
Is it Jane Austen, who started writing in a era of non-female writers?
Or Harriet Beecher Stowe who wrote Uncle Tom’s Cabin — a true fighter
Susan B. Anthony gave Women a voice to vote
Coco Chanel defined the feminine style beyond the trench coat
Mother Teresa is a global icon, a true servant of the people
Now Rosa Parks fought for all people to be equal
I could go on and on with this list
But let’s do more than just coexist
Let’s start 2018 with more than just our titles
A woman, an engineer, an assistant, a coach, gymnast, an anchor or pilot
A mom, An inventor, a general, philanthropist, sister, comedian, executive
Oceanographer, astronaut, lawyer, niece, journalist, singer and a diplomat
Lets be strong women and stand tall
Lets be women who lead all
