As gifted adults we are perpetually in the process of striving toward self-actualization. We want to become absolutely everything we can be and experience all of the world in its magnificent totality. But some say that for gifted women this is a nearly unattainable goal…

Our talents and abilities give us…

Redefining 'success' has value for both women and men. Success has to do with fulfillment and happiness on a daily basis. While we're still lacking economic parity between genders even in the 'modern western world' – an inequality that must still be addressed – the over-arching issue as human consciousness evolves is the concept of 'success' in our lives as a whole and not just career/$ success, which is but a component (albeit an important one) of the bigger picture.

I think you are absolutely right with the points you've raised here. So many times we define success in such limited ways it's nearly impossible to reach however we may try. Looking at the bigger picture would help more people realize that they can be successful, even if their success doesn't look exactly the same as their neighbour's.

Thanks for sharing.

I think success includes much more than finances.  For sure they're part of it, but having money and not doing anything productive with it for me is not success.  Using everything you have in yourself and making a difference in the world is what's most important for me.

Education, formal or informal, helps you to do that because you've got knowledge to share.  Money helps you to do that because you can reach and help more people and use your resources to initiate needed change.  Relationships help you to do that by empowering others and doing what you can to bring them up to their full potential. 

We need to broaden the current idea of success so that it includes, not only benefit to individuals, but also benefit to the society and the world we live in.

As a gifted woman, I've learned to live without relationships.
My peers' baffling attitudes never fail to confuse me. I've sought out mentors, but they have little to teach beyond bumpersticker advice. As a woman, I'm 'supposed' to be more attuned to relationships, relying on them for a sense of self and purpose. My own experience, & those of other gifted women I've read, is one of relational isolation and confusion.

I think each woman, gifted or no, should decide and choose what popularly-identified "feminine" values she wants to embody. Why are we still arguing about "having it all"? What does that phrase mean to a woman who does not, unlike most other females it seems, emotionally overinvest myself in my genitalia? Why do we lack imagination when it comes to our own lives? Do we still allow our culture to define who a woman can be or do?
