As a manager it’s often my job to motivate and guide others. Lately I’ve been having a battle with one of my 19 year old staff who is consumed in her own world of negativity.
She seems to think that the world is limited and possibilities do not exist for third world islanders.
I am sadden by her negative connotation and how disastrous her energy can be towards myself or even other team members. Being a person who has dealt with negative self talk and constant pessimism. I have to remember to guard myself around her. But as a woman who knows that life is more than what we see now ,more than it seems as a woman with a renewed mind and sense of purpose. I feel it’s my responsibility to guide and coach her about life !!
In my own way I believe 19 is such a golden age, it hold both a sense of legality, maturity and innocence. It screams you can be all you need to be and more ! The options that are available now were not there decades ago.
Women are now dominating roles that were mostly held by men. We have female engineers, medical scientist, CEO’s,Company owners, owner/directors of fortune 500 companies. Women domination sports fields, business, technology just to name a few.
I am never going to stop empowering her . In spite of her negativity I see a dim light in her trying to shine bright. She goes by the nic name sexual healing cause maybe she thinks her body is her only pass to the next level ????
Maybe everyone would disagree but I’m at the age of 29 and I believe there are still endless possibilities for me.
Maybe someday she will know the world is a blank canvas with unlimited possibilities.
