My inspiring life lessons: Have you found yourself saying "Well, I'm not a complete match for this so I won't apply"? I see confirmation of this statistic time and time again. Women often have self-imposed limiting beliefs that keep them from even applying for job opportunities or promotion opportunities. You're not alone if you've been taking yourself out of the game before you even really get started.
