Want to live your best life, like Barbie?
Do a search on Google or social media for the Barbie movie, and you’ll witness how controversial this movie is, for varying reasons.
One of the messages is about how women can be anything.
I enjoyed certain moments in the movie. There were some funny and nostalgic points throughout it.
However, I feel that there’s so much more to empowerment, if you want to have success and true freedom in life, where we…
* Don’t have to rely on someone else for our income
* Don’t have to go to a job that sucks our soul dry
* Can do as we please, on our own terms, and have control over our lives
It takes more than just a feeling of empowerment (and being told we can do anything).
So, as female business owners, what do we need to know about creating true freedom and success that the Barbie movie doesn’t teach us?
If we really want to live our best lives and have businesses that support us and others, there are other important elements to true and lasting empowerment.

Here are 3 essential elements to create true success in business in order to have a truly successful, passion-fuelled, profitable business you love.
There are a lot of mixed opinions about the Barbie movie.
The film is set in Barbieland, a colourful utopia where Barbies hold the positions of power such as President – and the men exist to serve them.
The set was amazing, and there were some funny and nostalgic moments. But then it got complex.
The Barbie movie tagline “You can be anything,” shows the evolution of Barbie and how she now inspires others to reach their full potential.
But I feel there’s much more to empowerment beyond the message that women can be anything.
This is a huge subject and I’m not going deep into female empowerment here.
What I would like to talk about is my own experience and my thoughts on empowerment and what I believe it takes to be truly empowered.
So here are what I believe are 3 essential elements to create true empowerment and success in business.
1. Empowerment is more than a feeling
Hearing ‘you can do anything’ can create a feeling in your body.
It can motivate you to want to live your dreams.
Feeling empowered is awesome.
Our feelings matter. Success always starts with our thoughts and feelings.
But success is so much more than feeling empowered.
True empowerment comes when we also have the skillsets to truly be free.
Yes, dream big – but you’ve still got invest in your skills to get there.
We can’t just rely on our feelings to fuel us. Otherwise, when it gets hard then you stop.
Confidence comes from competence.
Acquiring and developing these skillsets is what allows you to have freedom, flexibility and finances to enjoy your life.
It’s hard to live our best life if we don’t have clients and we’re not making money.
And we don’t make enough money if we don’t develop our marketing skills.
If you don’t know how to create compelling online content that engages people.
If you don’t know how to create funnels that attract clients.
If you don’t how to get up in front of a group of people and share with them your organised knowledge.
If you don’t know how to inspire people to buy.
So there’s a next level for you when it comes to your marketing skillsets.
How much time are you investing each week to upskilling yourself in the areas in your marketing that are most needed?
2. Real empowerment is when everyone wins
REAL empowerment is when we’re not competing against each other.
Especially when it comes with tones of anger and contempt.
What I personally didn’t like in the Barbie movie was that there was a lot of competition between men and women rather than collaboration in harmony.
Sometimes we need to work on our own inner strength and confidence to be able to truly celebrate other people’s success.
True prosperity thrives on inclusivity, unity, and making the world a better place.
Not seeing other people as competition.
We all win when we are all working to empower everyone around us.
3. True success is about doing the things we’re avoiding
It’s about choosing NOT to avoid the skills you need to acquire in business.
It’s being willing to do those hard things that we’ve been avoiding.
When we face those things we find hard and do them – we make a big impact.
We become a role model and an example of possibilities.
So every time we move out of your comfort zone and feel expansion, our self worth increases.
We show up more and we show up better.
That’s how you truly empower yourself and other people and become an example of possibilities.
