DS Rosmah Mansur - Malaysian Women Out From Their Comfort Zone



Jacqueline have John F Kennedy, Nancy have Ronald Reagen, Hillary have Bill Clinton, Laura have George W Bush, Melinda have Bill Gates and DS Rosmah have DS Najib. These were only few examples among thousand more. Life is a succession of lessons which must be lived to be understood.

The great difference between those who succeed and those who fail does not consist in the amount of work done by each but in the amount of intelligent work. Many of those who fail most ignominiously do enough to achieve grand success but they labor haphazardly at whatever they are assigned, building up with one hand to tear down with the other. They do not grasp circumstances and change them into opportunities. They have no faculty for turning honest defeats into telling victories. With ability enough and ample time, the major ingredients of success, they are forever throwing back and forth an empty shuttle and the real web of their life is never woven.

Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor today urged Malaysian women to get out of their "comfort zone" . Women often held back despite having the critical intrinsic abilities, and despite the support given them to take up leadership roles in many areas outside of their homes.
Rosmah said the women community holding back from advancement with self-imposed barriers.

"Many women too decline to be in senior positions in corporations not because
they are incapable, but because they want greater work-life balance," she said at
the Asean Young Women Leadership Conference (AYWLC) 2015, held at Seri Pacific
Hotel today.

Citing an article in Forbes Women (August 2014) by Zeynap Ilgaz, Rosmah said
women are held back in their workplace for several reasons such as fear of failure, where young women fear workplace missteps will cost them their job, reputation and success.
Fear that employers will view themselves as vulnerable, inefficient or not motivated if they decide to start a family and inferiority complex, where women still believe that men are better leaders and more equipped for success. Rosmah also stressed the need to further emphasise new work structures and "family-friendly" policies to assist women in their working lives. "These include child care centres at the workplace, flexi-time, job-sharing and work-from-home policies. After all, the definition of 'workplace' has changed
radically," she said. Read here
