Every business woman (and stay at home mum, and woman who’s retired, and woman on a disability pension, and female student) needs to free herself of her inner good girl.
The inner good girl is the one who cares deeply about being likeable. She’s very focused on pleasing other people and spends a lot of her time internalising her emotions. Emotions which, if expressed, would rock the boat or cause problems for other people.
The good girl is a role we’re all encouraged to play from a very young age. And at that time, it makes sense. Parents need to get children dressed and fed and to bed on time, and teachers need to educate us. And so, as a child, the more you inhabit the good girl role, the more you’re rewarded.
Unfortunately though, what worked for us as girls, does not work for us as women. In fact, it works against us.
The problem though, is that as you move into adulthood, no one tells you that you’ve been programmed to stay small and compliant. No one tells you that the conditioning you’ve received will work against you the higher you climb in your business or career.
That’s why we’ve developed courses and classes and programs at The School of Visibility. To help you with exactly that.
Because if you don’t take the step of freeing yourself from your inner good girl conditioning, she will keep running your game. She’ll have you overdelivering and feeling uncomfortable about setting boundaries. She’ll stop you from speaking up in meetings or with your loved ones. She’ll say yes to many things you don’t want to do, because she’s be taught to value other people’s happiness above her own.
It’s time for all women to free themselves of their inner good girl. This week at the School of Visibility we’re on a mission to do everything we can to help to do just that.
- We’re producing a free video series which you can check out below (and which we’re adding to each day so by the end of the week you’ll find at least 5 videos below to help you see how the good girl is playing out in your own life).
- Plus we’ve put together a special offer you can think of as your ‘freedom from the good girl pack’. The offer is this; when you pick up our short course ‘Goodbye to the Good Girl’, you’ll receive our good girl class ‘Unpacking the Good Girl’ for free.
The free video series is below so scroll for more information, insight, and action steps.
