Break free from expectations by Asha Wilkerson

In the pursuit of personal growth and empowerment, it’s crucial to break free from societal expectations. As a black woman on a journey of self-discovery and healing, this article outlines key steps to help you achieve your goals and live authentically.

Goal Alignment: Embrace Your Authentic Self

Setting goals is commendable, but it’s equally important to ensure they align with your true self. Avoid falling into the trap of pursuing goals based on societal norms or external pressures. Take a cue from my own experience as a black woman who, at one point, aimed for a million-dollar business. However, upon reflection, I realized that financial success alone wasn’t my driving force. Align your goals with your identity, values, and aspirations to foster a sense of fulfillment.

Track Your Progress: Celebrate Your Wins

Tracking progress is a powerful tool on your empowerment journey. Acknowledge and celebrate both small and significant victories. As a black woman, it’s easy to focus on the endpoint and feel discouraged when it’s not reached immediately. However, by consistently monitoring your steps and reflecting on your achievements, you build momentum. Remember, celebrating progress is not just a pat on the back but a motivation to keep moving forward.

Get Support: Thrive Within a Supportive Community

In the pursuit of your goals, seek support from communities that resonate with your journey. Our brains often resist the unfamiliar, making it essential to have a support system that challenges negative thoughts. As a black woman, finding communities that facilitate growth, healing, and diverse perspectives is crucial. Whether it’s fitness, business, or spiritual healing, surround yourself with individuals who encourage personal development.
