Year 1: Growth and Development

Today marks one year since the launch of Capitol Heel and we would like to thank all of our loyal readers and subscribers for all of your support.

This year has been all about helping women grow and develop within the political arena. According to Bo Bennet, “those who improve with age, embrace the power of personal growth and personal achievement and begin to replace youth with wisdom, innocence with understanding, and lack of purpose with self-actualization.”

With each passing year, reflect on your personal goals. If you notice that you are off track, devise a plan, refocus, and execute. In some cases, you might determine that you need to change jobs or leave a certain city to achieve your short or long-term goals and that is perfectly fine but don’t wait six more months before you begin to plan for that job switch or that move.

Every year should teach you something new about you! Take a moment to reflect on these lessons and dedicate some time to becoming the best version of you because when you do, you will see the benefits in your career. Most importantly, as you reflect on those lessons or challenges make a plan to overcome those challenges in the future. Being able to navigate challenges is a valuable skill.

And while reflection is important, executing your next steps will determine how successful your reflection will be the following year. With that being said don’t be afraid to take that new job, move to that new city, mend that office relationship. Remember, “everyone wants to live on top of the mountain, but all the happiness and growth occurs while you’re climbing it” – Andy Rooney. Work hard and never get too comfortable because “if any would not work, neither should he eat” (2 Thessalonians 3:10) and “all progress takes place outside of your comfort zone” – unknown.

So, as we embark upon year two it is our hope that you experience an abundance of growth, development, and ultimately, success in your life, relationships, and career!

Happy 1 Year Capitol Heel!
