People often (and incorrectly) associate femininity with being weak or submissive. Some women, in an effort to appear strong and capable, completely neglect their feminine side- thinking it’s superficial and impractical.
Similarly, our view of power is also misguided and warped. Some women think only competing in the boardroom makes them powerful. Or getting the ‘job done’ or having the perfect body and a perfectly clean home is what warrants success and power. Since much of our worth is tied into what we do or don’t do it’s no wonder we often feel like we never measure up. The truth is being powerful and feminine is more about a shift in who you are rather than what you do.
1) You Are Your Own Superhero
Just like the song, you are an independent woman. You can do everything for yourself, and wear a killer pair of jeans while you are at it.
2) You Know What You Want in Life
Nothing is more intimidating to another human being than being in the presence of someone who knows what they want in life and isn’t afraid to go after it.
3) You Cherish Honesty and Vulnerability
As an alpha female, you know that it takes a real balance of being honest and letting yourself be vulnerable to the world to find success. You have to be frank with yourself about your strengths and weaknesses, and you have to be willing to confront those weaknesses.
4) You are Comfortable with Intimacy
Strong women aren’t intimidated by being intimate, both physically and mentally.
5) You Can Read People Well
Men don’t always realize that a strong woman is so strong because she knows herself inside and out. That kind of connection means she can spot the BS from a mile away. When something or someone doesn’t feel right, it’s because she knows that they aren’t in line with her expectations in life and it doesn’t take her long to figure out someone is lying to her.
6) You Respect Others and Demand Respect Yourself
Resilient women not only respect themselves but demand respect from other people. They don’t do this by walking around with a chip on their shoulder though; in fact, just the opposite: they are living their life the way they want.
7) You are Intense
Sometimes you are hot, and sometimes you are cold. You love hard, live hard, play hard, work hard. Everything you do is intense.
8) You Know Your Worth
You don’t need a man to tell you what your life is worth, and that is awesome. If you want a man in your life, you’ll need to find a strong man who knows your worth too, but it’s not on the top of your to-do list because you are out loving life.
9) You Give Things Your All
Everything gets 100% of your attention. That’s how you’ve made it this far and found so much success in your life. Strong women don’t back down from a challenge and are ready to take everything on with 100% of their being.
10) You Encourage Others to Be Their Best Selves
A strong woman can get the job done. They know that they aren’t perfect, and they are working on improving themselves and their own lives every day.
