Marissa Mayer, Yahoo’s New CEO, Redefines Women Power

Marissa Mayer Named CEO of Yahoo

The whole world appears to be talking about Marissa Mayer – Google’s “first 20” employee – who has been appointed as first ever female CEO of Yahoo

“I’m incredibly excited to start my new role at Yahoo! Tomorrow”, a very excited Marissa Mayer tweeted on Monday, July 16, 2012.

The whole world appears to be talking about Marissa Mayer – Google’s “first 20” employee – who has been appointed as first ever female CEO of Yahoo.

The success story of Marissa Mayer started 13 years ago when she joined Google in 1999 as employee number 20 and the first female engineer. During her tenure of 13 years with Google, she handled different responsibilities including engineer, designer, product manager, and executive.

Marissa Mayer also donned vital responsibilities in Google Images, Google Books, Google Search, Google, Google Toolbar, iGoogle, Google News, Product Search and Gmail. At Google media events, she acted as the primary spokesperson – an expressive and enthusiastic advocate for company’s newest offerings. She excelled in every role she played and kept climbing the success ladder with self-belief and confidence as her success secrets.

In her last stint with Google, she was working as the Vice President of Local, Maps, and Location Services. Mayer along with other “smarty-pants upstarts” was instrumental in taking the search engine Google miles ahead of the now-flagging Yahoo during the initial days of Internet. Now, she has the tough task ahead to avert same disaster once she has caused to Yahoo.

“Marissa is a well-known, visionary leader in user experience and product design and one of Silicon Valley’s most exciting strategists in technology development,” Yahoo co-founder David Filo said in a statement. “I look forward to working with her to enhance Yahoo’s product offerings for our over 700 million unique monthly visitors.”

Marissa Mayer, who is expecting her first child in October, is all set to accept the new challenge of being a mother. Though it appears challenging for somebody heading Yahoo, a role that has come packed with myriad and tough challenges, Marissa’s confidence and enthusiasm portrays that she will handle this responsibility with same dignity and care as she has handled her earlier responsibilities at Google.

We expect her to emerge as a role model for working women, who are afraid of raising families for the sake of their career and personal growth.

Major Achievements of Marissa Mayer

 

Perseverance Key to Success

Every person faces hurdles while making his way to success but one who perseveres and conquers them, emerges as the winner

Mayer was listed in Fortune magazine’s annual list of America’s 50 Most Powerful Women in Business in 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2011 and was ranked 50, 44, 42 and 38, respectively. In 2008, at the age of 33, she became the youngest woman ever listed in the magazine.

According to Catalyst, she is only the 20th current female CEO of a Fortune 500 company. It makes her to join the elite club of most successful business women, which includes names like:

Meg Whitman – Meg Whitman is serving Hewlett-Packard Meg as the president and CEO.

Virginia Marie “Ginni” Rometty – Named to Fortune magazine’s “50 Most Powerful Women in Business” continuously for seven years, she is the first woman to head IBM.

Patricia Ann Woertz – She was appointed as the CEO of Archer Daniels Midland in 2006. In 2010, she was ranked the 3rd most powerful woman by Fortune magazine.

All these women, who have achieved such an exceptional success in the field previously dominated by males, have redefined women strength, skills and will power. Their sheer determination and desire to excel can put those people to shame who still refer women as the “weaker sex”.

Key to Success – Perseverance and Positive Thinking

 

The success of Marissa Mayer highlights the significance of focus, positive thinking, and determination. You should be very focused on your goal. Once you find your path, you should move towards your ultimate goal with steely determination, discipline, hard word, and a “can do-will do” approach.

Every person faces hurdles while making his way to success but one who fights and conquers them, emerges as the winner. Struggles and difficulties are the eligibility tests for success. Only those who pass these tests deserve to be on the other side.

Judy Garland – Wisdom of Handling Success Is Just As Important As Success Itself

Judy Garland, the name still evokes emotions in her fans, admirers and all those who have battled the odds to emerge victorious. She is a shining example of those who refused to succumb to insecurities and crippling problems and reached a level where they became an inspiration for others.

Judy Garland, who would have turned 90 years old this month, was remembered this week in Tony Awards 2012. Tracie Bennett, who portrayed Judy Garland in End of the Rainbow, presented a pre-show ritual for the show Just in Time as Judy Garland.

Talking about her performance, she told zap2it, “To go on, I put the shoes on, I put the engagement ring on, then the scarf and the hat. By the time the coat is on, I am finally confident that I am going into Judy.”

Judy Garland’s life was full of ups and downs. Despite battling insecurity about her appearance, financial instability, and alcohol and drug addiction, she continued to perform and rule the hearts of her hundreds of thousands followers through a career that spanned 45 of her 47 years as a musician, actress, recording artist, and live performer in concerts.

Appreciated for her versatility, she was a recipient of a Juvenile Academy Award, the Golden Globe Award, Grammy Awards, and a Special Tony Award. Judy Garland will be remembered for her accomplishments and the smiles that she brought on the faces of her fans.

The singer and actor who reached an outstanding career peak at a young age (“at 39 years of age, she remains the youngest recipient of the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement in the motion picture industry”) has always been inspired the youth and will continue to motivate aspirants who find it hard to regain their self confidence and positive thinking after initial failures.

Goal Achievement Comes From The Desire to Achieve Success

Never let failure or defeatism overcome your desire to achieve success.

Her tumultuous personal life which was plagued by drug abuse, financial troubles and failed marriages (she died at the age of 47 from an accidental drug overdose) remains a glaring example of how success, if not handled with wisdom, maturity and levelheadedness can lead to a premature, tragic end.

Success never comes easy. The road to success is covered with hard work, heart breaks, sometimes failures, and bitterness but there is always a way out. When a series of struggles deters your personal growth, it is the wisdom for success that drives you toward the actual success and goal achievement.

Never let failure or defeatism overcome your desire to achieve success. Fuel your desire with hard work and determination and keep moving toward your dreams and goals. The goal may appear distant but is accessible.

Worrying and feeling discouraged about your future will not help you one bit.

 

Positive Thinking

The more clearly and consistently you focus on your goal, and the more effective your action, the more quickly you can succeed.

They certainly are not what we can call “steps to success”!

 

On the contrary, they distract one’s focus and they drain one’s power, hindering successful action.

 

So why do people slip into worry and discouragement?

 

The answer is quite simple: HABIT.

 

Indulging in feelings of discouragement and insecurity is habitual.

 

And that habitual pattern may be all that prevents you from successful goal setting and goal accomplishment.

 

To be successful, one must take goal-directed action.

 

The more clearly and consistently you focus on your goal, and the more effective your action, the more quickly you can succeed.

 

But indulging worry and discouragement robs one of power, and less power translates into a more distracted and diffuse focus and weaker, less impactful action.

 

Understanding that worry and discouragement ARE habitual, and that they DON’T work, is a major step in gaining freedom to achieve your goals and objectives.

 

To gain that understanding, practice being more conscious of your present attitude.

 

You will soon recognize that the cause of a negative attitude is not one’s circumstances, but one’s pre-programmed habitual emotional reaction pattern.

 

Once you see this you have taken the first of 3 powerful steps for success.

 

The next step is to practice living in a state of peaceful confidence and contentment, particularly when you feel the urge to indulge in feelings of discouragement or insecurity.

 

Every moment you resist the urge to dwell in a negative emotional state you weaken the habit and strengthen your self-control.

 

Step three on the road to success is to get engaged in constructive work aimed at accomplishing your most important objective.

 

Every action you take for what you want builds up a momentum of actively working for it.  This makes it easier for you to continue working, and to work with more focus and power.

 

You can always take some form and degree of action in line with what you want to accomplish.

 

Following these 3 steps will bring success and free you from unhappy stress.

A Key For Making Easy Money

Inspirational quotes can provide an energy booster for the soul.

 

For instance, let’s analyze this quote from one of the great success stories in literature of all time, the Russian writer, Fyodor Dostoevsky.

Inspirational quotes for achieving greater success

The more they worry about money, the more money problems they seem to attract.

“Money must be so far beneath a gentleman that it is hardly worth troubling about.”

 

I personally have discovered tremendous success wisdom in this quote, though it may not be directly related to the author’s meaning.

 

To achieve as much financial success as you want, being TOO concerned about money can prove self-sabotaging.

 

To achieve greater success, focus on your personal development, aimed at the fulfillment of your full potential.

 

Today, many people are looking for ways of making money in hard economic times.

 

But the more they worry about money, the more money problems they seem to attract.

 

Success seems to arrive when we are not feeling emotionally dependent.

 

One of the key elements in the wisdom of success is that you have to be having fun doing what you are doing.

 

You are certainly NOT having fun when you are feeling insecure about money.

 

Business opportunities seem to drop in our laps, when they happen.

 

Make it your focus to make a meaningful contribution to society.

 

Avoid the common mistake that causes failure of counting on positive anticipation.

 

The more you hope that you finally arrive at your big break, the more you program your subconscious to feel deprived, to feel depressed, to feel defeated when things don’t go exactly your way.  And these emotions hinder your ability to succeed greatly.

 

What you want to develop is a success mindset.  This means that you need to feel calm, feel secure, feel content while being alert in the present moment. This reveals your present opportunity, and this requires freedom from economic worries.

 

As I have said many times before: Financial insecurity is not a financial problem.  It is an emotional problem that manifests a financial problem.

 

To be successful, to manifest all the prosperity and accomplishment your heart desires, let go of worry about money, for it binds you to financial distress and blinds you to the path of wisdom for success.

 

As you let go of money worries, you will discover how living with more ease is one of the great keys for making more money.

 

Please in this blog share your thoughts about this self-help success tip about letting go of the emotional attachment to money as a key for making more money.

personal success

Trust that within you is the power to make your dreams come true, however gigantic those dreams might be. Imagine that you ARE that power

Within you exists the power to produce all of the personal success that you desire.

You may not believe that, but there actually IS a way to discover that you are that powerful.

For the next seven days, read the following daily.  They are inspirational quotes that can help you realize your great power.

  • “When you doubt that you have the power to succeed, when you worry that you may lack the power, simply do your best to experience the feeling, the attitude of trust that you ARE that power.”
  • “Several times a day, and particularly any time that you even begin to feel worried or discouraged about your possibilities, affirm to yourself, silently, over and over and over again, ‘I have all the power I need within me to achieve all that I desire. I trust I am destined for success.’”
  • Practice living in the feeling, in the attitude of trust that you really have nothing to fear.  Trust that within you is the power to make your dreams come true, however gigantic those dreams might be. Imagine that you ARE that power.”

By reviewing and applying them daily, these inspirational quotes can work magic on your mind, releasing you of the one thing capable of holding back your personal success: your fear, doubt, or worry that it may not or will not happen.

If you have a habitual tendency to worry, to feel insecure, then all day long, exercise and thereby strengthen, your trust or faith in your power to produce any and all the results that you desire.

As you actually work on this, you will find yourself increasingly free of anxiety, and increasingly filled with inner peace, joy and love.

Would you like me to share more powerful ways to develop the trust that frees you from pointless fear?Just let me know by including your request in this blog.

Would you like me to share my own personal story of how I found the wisdom of fearless mind? I’d be happy to share that with you.  Just ask me, in this blog.

Worry is a waste of energy that costs us joy.  It also costs us personal success, because trust, or faith, in our power releases all the energy needed to produce the outcomes we desire.

Happiness is your natural state.  To the extent that you feel UN-happy you block your happiness.

But we adults, for a variety of reasons, have learned to set a limit on our experience of life-enjoyment in the present moment.

 

We have learned to wait for special things to happen, like vacations, receiving gifts, or earning a raise in pay to release ourselves to joy.

 

What are some of the life-conditions that you believe
would make you very happy?

When you feel unhappy, discouraged or insecure, how does that impact your level of performance at work, in relationships, in parenting?

In this blog, share your thoughts or questions the self-help wisdom of
living in happiness.

 

Releasing ourselves to joy in the present takes practice.  And it takes commitment.

 

As you PRACTICE noticing how you feel, and then making the necessary adjustments to feel a bit better in the now, you will grow happier.

 

Now here is the practical value of growing happier.

 

Happiness is good for your health and it is good for your wealth.

 

The human body thrives on joy.  Joy is even known to heal.

 

Joy also attracts opportunities and conditions into your life that reinforce it, including prosperity!

Self growth for success

When you feel calm you can trust in the infinite goodness that life offers, and begin experiencing more fulfillment in the present

Here are some encouraging quotes about the success-power of peace:

1. Only in peace can you express genuine loving kindness, and only as you express genuine loving kindness can you forge positive relationships that really support your success.

2. When we live in peace we can be sensitive to what others need.  And the foundation of success is meeting other people’s needs.

An essential aspect of self-growth for success is developing your ability to live and work in peace.

Of course you can push yourself a bit from time to time, for a short burst of progress.  But a steady, daily “diet” of stress prevents you from finding and following your path to TRUE success – success that really fulfills you.

What are your reasons (excuses!) for living in too much stress and strain?

Define what a truly successful life means to you. Does it include living in so much stress that you feel unhappy, burdened, frustrated?

In this blog, share your thoughts and questions about
how stress impacts your life and what you can do about it?

Here are two more encouraging quotes that connect peace with success:

  • When you feel calm you can trust in the infinite goodness that life offers, and begin experiencing more fulfillment in the present.

  • When you permit yourself to live and work in a calm state, you feel spiritually nurtured at a deep level, and discover that conditions often seem to work out well on their own.

Turn each day into an exercise in self-growth aimed at developing the habit of functioning calmly under all circumstances.

Review the encouraging quotes about the calm path to success presented in this blog to help you to succeed in peace.

A Positive Thinking Success Secret

Receive your FREE Advice for your success through this blog. Simply ask Bob Lancer your question and receive his Lancer’s Answer in this blog.

Positive Thinking

Deliberately think about a higher level of financial success

To fully employ the power of positive thinking requires liberating the mind from the habit of reactive thinking.

You cannot raise the level of your circumstances until you raise the level of your thinking about your circumstances or in response to your circumstances.

Your automatic way of thinking about things keeps things from improving.

One of the most well known “success secrets” is that you bring about the forms of experience that match what you think about.

But to fully harness the power of positive thinking you need to:

  1. Be aware of what you are thinking, when you are thinking
  2. Deliberately raise the level of your thinking to reflect a higher condition

For instance, to fully employ the power of positive thinking to your finances, notice how you presently think about your financial condition.

Then, deliberately think about a higher level of financial success.

Negative thinking not only prevents success, it fills the body with unhealthy stress.

Exercise for applying the power of positive thinking:

  1. 1. Describe a condition in your life.
  2. 2. Then, imagine a more satisfying successful condition and describe that.

What situations or events trigger your NEGATIVE thinking?

In this blog, share your thoughts and questions about
how to raise the level of your thinking to
raise the level of your circumstances.

The key for fully employing the healthy success secret of positive thinking:  practice being aware of what you are thinking, when you are thinking it, so you can shift into a higher, healthier vision or concept.
