The Woman Code : 20 Powerful Keys to Unlock Your Life
THE WOMAN CODE : 20 POWERFUL KEYS TO UNLOCK YOUR LIFE
Every woman lives by a code, whether she realizes it or not. It informs how she treats others and herself, how much she expects of herself, and how far she is willing to go in order to find success. But is the code we're living by truly helping us create the lives of purpose and fulfillment we desire? Or are we sacrificing the deeper things for mere achievement?
In this inspiring book, Sophia A. Nelson calls women to live out a powerful life code that will lead them to purposeful and successful lives. With the wisdom that comes from experience, Nelson reveals to women
· the true meaning of "having it all"
· how to take better care of their minds, bodies, and souls
· how to achieve professional excellence without compromising their values
· how to find lasting love and purpose in life beyond their accomplishments
· how to navigate the sisterhood of women, to build collaboration rather than competition
· how to heal from past hurts, rejection, and life's inevitable storms
· and much more
The Woman Code is a way of living, of navigating life's challenges, and of interacting positively with other women. It's a way of pursuing our dreams and our deepest desires. It reveals a universal and timeless set of principles of the mind, body, and spirit that help women balance the demands of work, home, family, and friendship. The Woman Code not only calls on women to practice purpose in their lives, it shows them how to do it with grace.
One of my favourite quotes from this book: "To be a woman is to be power in motion." (p.27) And that really sums up the direction Nelson takes her readers as she encourages us to find fresh perspective in every aspect of our lives. The topics covered aren't new, but the approach is. Nelson's writing is fluid, thoughtful and kept my attention. It almost felt like we were having a conversation. I really got a lot out of the Living the Code sections where she challenges the reader to dig deeper and turn thoughts into action. Very motivational. The Woman Code is the kind of book you want to have close at hand for frequent consultation. I don't read many non-fiction books cover to cover but this one is an exception. It has definitely earned a place on the keeper shelf.
