We find ourselves “doing” so often that we don’t take the time to reflect on how far we’ve come. That’s why this episode of the Melanin & Medicine Podcast is about reflecting to stay motivated!

As Black women, we often limit our dreams, our impact, our wealth & even our legacy by not owning our power & maximizing it. Knowing whether you are fully owning your power is essential for helping you learn how you can tap into more power to live the life you deserve.

This week, I’m sharing the importance of reflecting back on how far you’ve come in order to stay motivated and driven going forward.

What You’ll Learn From This Episode:

  • Reflecting on the change that has occurred in your life over the past 12 months. 
  • Looking internally to notice change and drive our motivation when we might not be able to see it on the outside. 
  • How I have learned to create a vision of internal growth and start to recognize the fruits of my labor. 
  • Recognizing that the person you bring to the world in yourself is more valuable than what you bring to the world. 

Be sure to tune in to all the episodes to receive tons of practical tips on empowering Black women in medicine and academia to find their purpose and achieve their vision.
