A strong woman is rare, and you will know her as soon as you see her. You’ll notice there is an air of success and self-respect about her.

But even though success seems to follow her wherever she goes, she has been through more than most people can handle; except that this has only made her stronger and helped her become the strong women she is today.

Today, she is the queen of her throne; and to get there, she has overcome several hurdles. Even though her world has been shattered before, she has put all the pieces back together. She understands that no one can build up the world she dreams of except herself. Most importantly, she has enough respect and trust to go and get what she wants.

She knows precisely what she needs to make things happen – courage, adventure, ambition, and confidence. She has mastered the art of using these tools to create the life of her dreams and achieve her goals.

And yet, she is still a woman; and that means she is still sensual and soft; she is still kind and loving. But even as she embraces her femininity, and is not afraid to flaunt it, she knows that nobody else can define her but herself, least of all a man.

A strong woman knows that every challenge life throws her way is an opportunity to get closer to her goals. For instance, while loneliness will derail most people, strong women see this as an opportunity to work on themselves and their dreams. That is how strong women end up building empires. They do not let the experience force them into submitting to men; they still remain to be strong; and nothing can take their focus off their life goals.

She is not going to let anything force her into settling for anything less than her expectation. For this reason, she has her limits, and no one is allowed to violate them and compromise her success, particularly not an immature man.

A strong woman knows the difference between a man who is focused on building a career and a man whose focus is women. She also understands the difference between a long-term connection and a one-night connection. But whatever she wants, that is what she goes after and she gets it.

And above all else, she knows she has to love herself to love anyone else. After all, to love, you need to love yourself first, you cannot give what you do not have.

If you think being a strong woman is such a huge challenge; understand that it’s not. Every time you face a challenge, you just need to make a better decision to avoid compromising your future and your goals in life and you will always be moving forward.

No challenge can keep you from becoming the strong successful woman you deserve to be. So, work on becoming the best version of yourself you could ever be today and you will soon become a Queen over your empire, and you will be a strong woman who is fully in charge of your life and your destiny.
