On a beautiful Friday afternoon, women in the Vancouver blogging community were invited by the British Pacific Properties to attend high tea at Aston Hill.

Taken from a Chinese proverb: “When sleeping women wake, mountains will move” was the theme of Narges’ talk.  Here are 10 tidbits from her speech:

  • Strong women champion others even when they have their own battles.
  • Don’t allow yourself to be your worst critic. Embrace and believe in yourself every minute.
  • Use a positive inner voice.
  • Believe in signs to take things to the next level. This is your moment to shine. Don’t wait for perfection.
  • The concept of winning difficult because women have a heightened sense of emotional intelligence.
  • Your vision will limit what you will accomplish in your life.
  • Fill in the blanks. I AM: ________. Your mindset creates reality.
  • Your mindset is the single most powerful thing you have.
  • Challenge yourself to go from successful to powerful.
  • Don’t be blinkered by numbers and statistics. Believe in yourself.

I think it would be accurate to say that every attendee at the event was able to relate to a part of Narges’ speech and take it as a reminder to believe in ourselves and imagine the limitless possibilities of what we can accomplish both individually and together.
