Every woman alive struggles with self-doubt, which is often brought on as she strives for the impossible-society's version of "perfection"-and the harder she tries to meet those expectations, the harder her girly thoughts work to convince her she is a lost cause. Psychologist and resiliency coach Patricia O'Gorman, PhD, has created the definitive detox program that will change everything for women-the feminist in her 70s, the corporate executive in her 60s, the small-business owner in her 50s, the divorcée in her 40s, the young mother in her 30s, and the newly minted college graduate in her 20s. Here Dr. O'Gorman further explores the hot new concept that has excited readers around the world from Dubai to Toronto-girly thoughts. Introduced in The Resilient Woman: 7 Steps to Personal Power and delved into here in greater depth, the term girly thoughts gives every woman a name for the negative inner voice that robs her of her personal power by telling her counter-productive messages: •You are too smart or too assertive to be desirable. •You are too heavy, skinny, or busty to be attractive. •It's your fault your husband had an affair. •You need to worry about others, not yourself. •The only way out is to anesthetize the pain of your girly thoughts. This special presentation will take place at the 2nd Annual Beautiful Women Doing Beautiful Things Women's Networking Event on Thursday, August 28th hosted by Marvalous Events LLC. For more information about this event or to RSVP, please call Marvali Garcia at 518-506-2674.
