About Strong Women, just wanna contemplating…


Characteristics That Make A Strong Woman Sexy

I used to joke that I wanted to date a weak woman – a woman who couldn’t make her mind up and liked being told what to do. In reality, weak women are not attractive. I guess I’ve been surrounded by strong women my whole life: my grandmother was a matriarch of the family with only a high school education. She was the ultimate “mother” figure-strongly opinionated, clever, funny, and tender.

My mom attended University of Maryland Medical School with a pioneer class including very few women. My older sister won two national championships at University of Virginia in lacrosse, and my little sister was Vice President of her PR company before I got my first promotion.

One night at a family dinner, my cousin quipped that my brother-in-law who had recently married in to our family, joined a “slightly matriarchal” family.

It’s true: in my family things seem to be run by the women. The women in our family literally shepherd the men.

Since our “matriarchal” conversation, I composed a list of what makes a strong woman. Intelligence
I believe everyone is blessed with some form of intelligence-whether it’s “traditional” book smarts, or athletic intelligence (the ability to understand angles and physical movement, space), creative smarts, or “street smarts” – in the dating world, a sharp woman knows when a guy is playing her, and/or expects more from a guy.

Honesty is the number one thing I look for in a woman. Ambition
There are many forms of ambition – a lawyer works hard, but so does a stay-at-home mom (believe me, I’ve seen how hard my sister works). Drive and hard work are admirable…and two things I wish I did better.

If a woman doesn’t have a passionate love for a type of music or food, it makes her appear to have a weak personality. Passion is also linked to loyalty.

What do you think makes a strong woman? Who in your life is a strong woman?

to Be a Strong Independent Woman

Women need to stick together. Read on to find out how to be a strong, independent woman! Your boss, co-workers, peers, and the regular people you deal with everyday may try to take advantage of you at some point.

Realize that women have come a long way. Many people try to claim that a woman’s job is in the home, taking care of the house, children, and their husband’s needs far beyond their own. Less than a hundred years ago women had barely any rights, and now we are closer to the same level as men. Women also have needs, too. On the other hand not if intolerant people take their intolerance too far and start beating other people up. It takes strength not to concern yourself about what other people think. Don’t worry about men too much. Yes, you may want a man in your life. Raise your self esteem. The majority of people with low self esteems are women. Write a list of all the reasons women are awesome.

Accept your faults and other people’s faults, as long as they are not abusive. Flaws make women more interesting anyway.

Do not let people threaten you. If someone is verbally threatening you, then go the correct authorities. At school, that could be your teacher, principal, guidance counselor, or School Resource Officer. At work, that would be your supervisor; if your supervisor is the one doing it, then go to Human Resources or go to your supervisor’s superior. It’s always a good idea to get support and strategy from your local women’s group or Rape Crisis Center. Do not be afraid to ask for help.

Start by being more punctual, it will definitely help. If you really want to become a strong woman it’s all about being taken seriously. People will be more aware of a sense of reliability.

Become organized. Do council work, community service etc. Anything to help something improve, it’ll make you feel like you’re on top of world.

Be true to yourself that will make you a strong woman!

The Greatest Weakness of Strong Women

Alice’s relationship was rocky for years. She is a powerful executive coach who is asked to speak onleadership topics world-wide. When she met her boyfriend Dan, he was the marketing VP for a well-known global corporation. The travels and changes in their lives made for a bumpy relationship.

After a long silence, Dan said, “I would have never known.”

We strong women often feel we need to tough it out on our own. We forget to give others the gift of letting them help us. Do you ever wave off offers of help or reject suggestions from the people you love?

Playing the warrior, heroine and martyr can be even more intense at work. When was the last time you accepted advice from others? If you are shaking your head in agreement, you are a victim of two beliefs.

To be seen as a “strong women” you adamantly block anything that would resemble “being girly.”

As a result, you have created a wall that not only blocks other people from supporting you, it keeps you from creating intimate, mutual relationships. At work, your leadership could be questioned as you prevent full collaboration and respect for everyone’s ideas.

The problem is that you have defined accepting help as being vulnerable, which means you are susceptible to being wounded or hurt, including being open to criticism.

When you accept help, listen to other ideas and let someone else do things for you, you are stronger, not vulnerable.

Give away one of your tasks that is meaningful (not just drudge work) such as allowing someone else to make a presentation for you, attend a meeting or event in your place or take on a piece of your work that will help them develop their skills.

Tell someone how much you appreciate their help and assistance. Accept well-intended advice whether you plan to use it or not. Acknowledge the gift instead of treating it as an annoyance or attack on your intelligence.

Create interdependencies. ¹ The Burden of Greatness emerged as a strong theme in my doctoral study of today’s high-achieving women. This trend is full explained in my book, Wander Woman: How High-Achieving Women Find Contentment and Direction (Berrett-Koehler, 2010).
