Mother Teresa, Helen Sayles, Oprah, Lucinda Bruce-Gardyne,
Collette Grant, Melinda Gates, Karen Ayas, JK Rowling, Saltire Sirens and my
mum are only a few of THE most influential and powerful women I respect and
look up to.
A question I ask myself is what these women have in common –
hardworking, putting others before themselves, loyal, strong, self-confident, positive
energy, optimistic, honest, trustworthy, disciplined, have great integrity, determined,
driven, courageous, patient, happy, ambitious and inquisitive.
These are the women who embody and enact the change they
wish to see and achieve what they set in their minds eye. These are the exact
qualities we should also aspire to focus on within ourselves. We need to push our boundaries, and aim for
greater successes in life.
After the Saltire women’s networking event on Tuesday last,
I was so happy to be a part of such energy and I am certain that positive
changes will emerge from it. There are
certainly leaders and powerful drivers in the making, we just have to stay
focused and strive to what we claim is our prize.
When you think of the words ‘powerful women’ what do you
see? Someone who is successful in business, family, popularity, overcome
serious obstacles be it personal or professional? All these things can invoke
images of power, what we see is just the end result. What we overlook is the
journey they have had to get there, including all the characteristics mentioned
So… give all you have; don’t give up; speak your mind;
respect yourself and others; stand up for your basic beliefs, values and
principals; inspire yourself and others; share your gifts, talents, skills and
knowledge with others; more importantly be that change you wish to see! It’s the possession and application on a
daily basis of these qualities and characteristics that makes a woman ‘one
Happy International Woman’s day ladies!
Go rock the world and create your ripples!
