HOW REAL LIFE POWER WOMEN GET AHEAD AND STAY AHEAD NO MATTER WHAT CHALLENGES COME THEIR WAY
DIANA PRINCE (a.k.a. Wonder Woman) is a comic book character created in 1941 to represent “the new type of woman who should rule the world”. Fast forward to 2022, and this representation could not be more significant to millions of women around the world. Although Wonder Woman may be fictional, her ideals and convictions clearly reflect the traits of today’s most successful women.
So, using the most empowering quotes from the comic books, TV shows and movies, here are the top superpowers of a real-life Power Woman.
SUPERPOWER 1: “IF NO ONE ELSE WILL DEFEND THE WORLD, THEN I MUST.”
This quote from the 2017 movie starring Gal Gadot sums up everything about Wonder Woman. She is not afraid to do the right thing not because she wants praise (or more Instagram followers), but because it is simply right.
A courageous woman stands up and refuses to stay silent until a wrong has been made right or a problem has been solved. Overcome your fears. Recognize your goals and stay the course. Know when to push hard for what you believe. This takes a combination of passion, self-respect and timing.
Remember, the greatest human achievements always come with the greatest of risks.
SUPERPOWER 2: “I’M WILLING TO ACCEPT THE CONSEQUENCES.”
Taken from an issue of a comic book, this quote is a declaration of intent and dedication from Diana Prince. But in the real world context, this can also be a declaration of the acceptance of mistakes that can and will be made in a woman’s path to success.
Planning on changing careers? Want to reinvent yourself? Do it! This is your life. Make the most of it. Backtracking and wrong turns are part of it. Nobody’s perfect. And things don’t always go according to plan. A strong woman knows these and keeps moving forward anyway.
To acknowledge the possibility of making mistakes is more powerful than insisting that you’re always right to the detriment of everything else. It also prevents you from being paralyzed by the fear of taking one wrong step.
Remember, what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.
SUPERPOWER 3: “DON’T RAISE YOUR HAND UNTIL YOU’VE FIRST EXTENDED IT.”
The complete quote from this comic book issue goes, “Don’t kill if you can wound, don’t wound if you can subdue. Don’t subdue if you can pacify. And don’t raise your hand at all until you’ve first extended it.”
Dog-eat-dog. Survival of the fittest. Last man (or woman) standing. Society has programmed us to think that the only way up is to push everyone else down. But compassion and kindness are more powerful than selfishness and greed. And these traits are opportunities to connect with others.
The strongest of women help build others up. They show unconditional love and support. By lifting others up, you are more likely to reach your own goals. When you want others to succeed, they’ll want you to succeed as well. It’s a win-win situation.
Remember, empowering friends is better than empowering enemies.
SUPERPOWER 4: “A DEAL IS A PROMISE. AND A PROMISE IS UNBREAKABLE.”
Also from the 2017 movie, this quote illustrates conviction when it comes to keeping one’s word and seeing things through until the end. It’s true that we are only human and that many promises do get broken. But this quote reminds us of the importance of trust in others and, more importantly, trust in one’s self.
A strong woman sets a target and reaches for it, no matter how difficult it is. She commits to playtime with her kids even after a long and toxic WFH day. She never skips yoga every morning even if she doesn’t feel like practicing. And she meets up and has fun with friends when she says she will.
Remember, success isn’t about doing one great thing. It’s about consistently keeping your promise to do one good thing after another.
SUPERPOWER 5: “LIFE IS GOOD. BUT IT CAN BE BETTER.”
In the movie “WW84”, this line captured the essence of greed and blind ambition. But in the context of the real world, it can mean the pursuit of self-improvement and positive growth.
A strong woman stays strong because she knows when to ask for help. If her knowledge of a certain field is limited, she elevates her knowledge by seeking advice from experts.
