In every moment, we are presented with the opportunity to choose how we want to live our lives. You received a precious gift that was passed onto you from the previous generations: the gift of new potential and awareness, the opportunity to evolve and grow in ways that previous generations could not have imagined. The question is: what do you plan to do with this gift? 

As female leaders, it is especially important for us to pay attention to the changes that are taking place in the world around us. From technological advancements to shifting societal norms, the world is constantly evolving, and it is up to us to embrace these changes and use them to our advantage.

One of the key ways we can do this is by being open to new modes of being. Whether it’s exploring new possibilities for ourselves, embracing new ways of thinking, or trying new experiences, it is crucial that we stay curious and never stop growing. In doing so, we not only better ourselves, but we also inspire others to do the same.

One of the most powerful ways we can embrace change is through transformational self-development. It all starts with awareness: where am I? Where do I want to be? When we ask these simple yet not easy questions, something happens at the level of our consciousness that allows us to transform. 

Another way to embrace change is by practising self-care and caring for our physical, mental, and emotional well-being. By taking care of ourselves, we are better equipped to handle the challenges that life presents us with and are able to show up as our best selves in every moment. Again, this is a non-negotiable aspect of a new approach to leadership, which I call elevated female leadership. 

Last but not least, it is important for us to cultivate a supportive and vibrant community. Surrounding ourselves with people who uplift and encourage us, who challenge us to grow and who celebrate our successes helps us be the best version of ourselves and continue to evolve and grow in meaningful ways.

In conclusion, the gift of each generation is the opportunity to embrace change and evolve in ways that previous generations could not have imagined. By paying attention to the changes that are taking place around us, embracing new modes of being, educating ourselves, taking care of ourselves, and cultivating a supportive community, we can unleash our full potential and create a brighter future for ourselves and those who come after us.

I am so profoundly grateful to all women who came before me – I stand on your shoulders and proudly bring your wisdom forward. 

May our gifts contribute to the change we want to see in the world,

With love,

Maja Michalewska.
