AAUW's advocacy efforts have propelled countless new laws, including the Equal Pay Act, first proposed in 1945 and finally passed in 1963; the Title IX amendment in 1972; the Family and Medical Leave Act in 1993; the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act in 2009; and the Paycheck Fairness Act, which was passed by the U.S. Representatives in 2019 but is awaiting action in the Senate.

Don’t let your past experiences keep you inside such a tightknit bubble that you don’t allow yourself to live freely and be vulnerable and experience life as you should because of some thing that potentially was out of your control it happened in the past time to start living an abundant life, it’s time to heal from our trauma, and it’s time to clean the future we desire
Resilience is not about gritting your teeth and getting through or sucking it up. Resilience is about honoring our need to ask for and receive help. It is important to remember that you are not going it alone. There is always someone who can help and there is always hope. ~Dr. Mollie Marti, founder, and President, National Resilience Institute
To be emotionally resilient is the ability to bounce back. But that’s not all.
Before this word applied to people, it was a mechanical definition.
In an old dictionary from 1950, it means: returning to or resuming the original position or shape. Mech. (that means mechanical) capable of withstanding shock without permanent deformation or rupture.
In an older dictionary from 1940, resilient isn’t even a word that stands alone. Instead, it’s listed as an elongation of the word resile. (I’d never heard of the word) Resile means to spring back or recoil. It gives the example of resiliency as a spring.
Modern definitions immediately apply resiliency as a quality people possess to recover quickly from difficulty, crisis, stress, and hardship.
Resiliency is a psychological strength to cope instead of falling apart. People with strong resiliency can maintain their cool even in disastrous situations. It doesn’t mean they don’t feel the stress, they simply have the means to handle it instead of running from it or emotionally shutting down.
Create your routine for ways to be productive and discover your own value.
“Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.” – St. Francis of Assisi

As an entrepreneur you know it's hard to keep your head out of the clouds. Entrepreneurs are naturally visionaries. Visionaries don't always have the best boots on ground habits to execute what needs to be done for their vision. The concept of cloud and dirt is the best way for me to describe law of attraction for entrepreneurs.
