Things That You Don’t Need To Tell A Strong Woman At All

Things That You Don’t Need To Tell A Strong Woman At All

Things that you don’t need to tell a strong woman at all as she has been through a lot of challenges in her life but has never allowed the negative experiences to define her. She’s clear about what she does and doesn’t want and is not afraid to stand up against things that she does not agree with or finds unfair.

Meeting someone who knows themselves so well can feel intimidating and make you question what you can or cannot say to them. Here are some things that you really don’t need to tell a strong woman at all.

1. Get over it, it’s been long enough

You don’t need to tell a strong woman how long she must spend on the floor after life has knocked her down. She knows that she needs time to process the setback and then make a plan of action to move forward. She won’t dwell on things for long but she knows when she needs a timeout to just let go and be.

2. You’re stupid and worthless

The reason for her strength is because she knows her own self-worth and her own value. Telling her that she’s stupid and worthless will only make her look down at you and show her that you are reflecting your own self-worth on to her.

3. You’re so confident

Strong women exude confidence because they have overcome a lot in their journey and learned from their experiences. They are not arrogant but humble with their confidence because they have taken enough knocks in life and gotten back up again.

4. You don’t need anyone to lean on

Everyone needs someone to lean on when things happen in life and a strong woman knows that. She’s not afraid to reach out for support or ask for help. By following this action she is showing her strength even more because being strong does not mean you need to be alone!

5. I will tell you how to live your life

A strong woman knows what she does and doesn’t want in her life. When someone is constantly telling her what she should say, do and how she should be; odds are that that person will no longer be a part of her life. She will not tolerate being treated like a child.

6. I am the guy you’ve been waiting for

If you want to be with a strong woman then do not tell her that you are the man for her. She knows her mind and heart and will only be with you if she sees something special in you. Otherwise she will find someone else, she’s in no hurry.

7. You don’t know how to fix this

Strong women are solution driven and not problem focused. So telling a woman that something cannot be done will only make her more determined in finding a solution to making things happen.

8. You don’t need to do anything with your life

Strong women are driven to achieve their dreams and accomplish something in their lives. They do not have the energy or willpower to sit around and do nothing for long. Even if she isn’t a career woman, odds are she will be part of or leading some organisation or charity and making a difference.

9. You’re such a weak person

A strong woman is all about being assertive. She knows her boundaries and is clear about what she will and won’t tolerate from people. She doesn’t need to scream and shout to get her point across.

10. You don’t get what they want

A strong woman likes open, honest and direct communication.  Mind games are something she finds immature and a waste of time. She has nothing to hide and therefore is not afraid to tell you what she is thinking. So just ask.

How to Motivate People Around You and Inspire Them

How to Motivate People Around You and Inspire Them

If I was a super hero I’d want my super power to be the ability to motivate everyone around me. Think of how many problems you could solve just by being able to motivate people towards their goals. You wouldn’t be frustrated by lazy co-workers. You wouldn’t be mad at your partner for wasting the weekend in front of the TV. Also, the more people around you are motivated toward their dreams, the more you can capitalize off their successes.

Being able to motivate people is key to your success at work, at home, and in the future because no one can achieve anything alone. We all need the help of others.

So, how to motivate people? Here are 7 ways to motivate others even you can do.

1. Listen

Most people start out trying to motivate someone by giving them a lengthy speech, but this rarely works because motivation has to start inside others. The best way to motivate others is to start by listening to what they want to do. Find out what the person’s goals and dreams are. If it’s something you want to encourage, then continue through these steps.

2. Ask Open-Ended Questions

Open-ended questions are the best way to figure out what someone’s dreams are. If you can’t think of anything to ask, start with, “What have you always wanted to do?”

“Why do you want to do that?”

“What makes you so excited about it?”

“How long has that been your dream?”

You need this information the help you with the following steps.

3. Encourage

This is the most important step, because starting a dream is scary. People are so scared they will fail or look stupid, many never try to reach their goals, so this is where you come in. You must encourage them. Say things like, “I think you will be great at that.” Better yet, say, “I think your skills in X will help you succeed.” For example if you have a friend who wants to own a pet store, say, “You are so great with animals, I think you will be excellent at running a pet store.”

4. Ask About What the First Step Will Be

After you’ve encouraged them, find how they will start. If they don’t know, you can make suggestions, but it’s better to let the person figure out the first step themselves so they can be committed to the process.

5. Dream

This is the most fun step, because you can dream about success. Say things like, “Wouldn’t it be cool if your business took off, and you didn’t have to work at that job you hate?” By allowing others to dream, you solidify the motivation in place and connect their dreams to a future reality.

6. Ask How You Can Help

Most of the time, others won’t need anything from you, but it’s always good to offer. Just letting the person know you’re there will help motivate them to start. And, who knows, maybe your skills can help.

7. Follow Up

Periodically, over the course of the next year, ask them how their goal is going. This way you can find out what progress has been made. You may need to do the seven steps again, or they may need motivation in another area of their life.

Final Thoughts

By following these seven steps, you’ll be able to encourage the people around you to achieve their dreams and goals. In return, you’ll be more passionate about getting to your goals, you’ll be surrounded by successful people, and others will want to help you reach your dreams …

Oh, and you’ll become a motivational super hero. Time to get a cape!
