Are you worried about getting older? Worried about discrimination or that you may simply be “past it” and not able to cut it any more?
Well maybe it's time to stop worrying and start celebrating your maturity, particularly if you are a woman.
Just last month, Jack Zengar, Zengar Folkman, shared stunning insights into age and confidence.
Women gain in confidence far more as we age.
We may feel less confident in our 20s and 30s, but there is light at the end of the tunnel
- Our confidence increases (men and women) as we head towards 40
- As a woman your confidence will increase even more through 50
- And then from 50 to 60+ it's all up hill!
In the words of Helen Reddy “I am woman, hear me roar”
To paraphrase “I am a more mature woman, see me soar!”
Combine this with research that we all get happier with age, we now have two great reasons to be happy about ageing.
For those experiencing age discrimination, let's not dismiss the fact that our society celebrates youth and older women are an invisible segment in our community. I don't want to dismiss the fact that this happens. So let this confidence research be your secret weapon, to help you get on the front foot and turn your age into a tactical advantage.
