These seven useful traits are what make up a successful woman in the workplace and in a relationship.
1. Be Completely Self Reliant
A woman who can take care of herself and does depend on everyone around her is a wonderful trait. It is okay to be taken care of and you should be able to allow yourself to be vulnerable, but also know that if needed you can do it your own, whether standing up for yourself, learning a new skill, or even just going to an event by yourself and holding your own. The ability to do things and accomplish them on your own is a trait that will carry you very far in life.
2. Be Ambitious
Dream big and run for them! You may not accomplishment exactly what you set out for but you can grow and learn along the way and may even run into something better. If you are running towards what you love and setting high standards it makes life more exciting and challenging, but also more rewarding. And who knows, you might just get to the dream after all, then it’s time to try a new challenge.
3. Know what you Want
A lot of people stumble around unhappy but never really making goals or deciding even on the simplest of things. Life is short, focus on what you want and let people know or make start trying to attain those wants with hard work. You may want and desire something that ends up being a mistake or it could be glorious but you’ll never know till you take the risk. Don’t worry about as much about what others tell you you want, because in the end it’s your life. Definitely be open to their opinions but go for the life you want, not the life and dreams you’re told to have.
4. Be Loyal
A loyal and trustworthy partner, friend, coworker is valued highly. If people know they can trust you, then you will be a major asset in your workplace or a closer friend or lover. Loyalty doesn’t always mean being a puppy dog and taking in all secrets like a vault and being a wall for others to talk to. Be careful you aren’t abused for your loyalty, but make sure you are respected and trusted rather than walked all over and talked at like you’re now their free therapist.
5. Do not be afraid to speak your mind
If you see someone hurt or racist or misogynistic comments that you disagree with, speak up. It is important though to be aware of your tone and the way you do speak up because you don’t want to yell or your voice be undermined, so say something calmly like, “I actually disagree and think….” Yes, this may hurt how you are seen or you may be more valued, but none-the-less speaking up for something you believe in is worth it, because life is too short to watch people bully others while you stand on the sidelines. Sometimes doing nothing says you think it is okay.
6. Be Intelligent
Think logically about your actions and voice. Whether you are making a fast-pace decision or thinking long term in to the future, be logical and rational about what could possibly happen. Use your intelligence of common sense and book-smarts throughout the day. Being impulsive isn’t a bad thing, but you can be intelligent and impulsive, so make sure and have a quick think before rash decisions or arguments.
7. Be Confident
The less talented person can be taken more serious if they have a vibrant confidence about them, and the shy but extremely more skilled individual could be overlooked with a shy and demure persona. The same can also be said for men being more attracted to the woman confident in herself. Confidence is not just a quality you are born with but a strength of mind and belief in yourself.
8. Genuinely Care about Others
One of the best qualities in the whole world is being able to put others before you. This selfless act shows love, care, strength, courage, etc. The world becomes a better place when even one person cares for another. This trait is admired in relationships, the workplace, in humanity, etc. Care for others, everyone has their own story with their own struggles they face everyday and a simple act of love is contagious.
