Character traits of a strong woman
To start with, a strong woman is more importantly an autonomous person. She is able to cover her needs by herself and doesn’t expect anyone to take care of her.
She is financially independent, able to take care of her family and that gives her self-esteem and confidence.
She makes her own decisions and leads her life the way she wants.
Knows what she wants/has specific goals
A strong woman knows exactly what she wants and has specific goals in life. She chooses what satisfies her, what is good for her and moves away from everything toxic, that harms her.
Her decisions and actions are in accordance with her wishes and the goals she has set.
She doesn’t accept less than she deserves. She uses her time wisely, persists and chases her dreams, without deviating from her values, until she conquers all her goals.
Strong Will Power
One of the most vital characteristics of strong women is a strong will. Strong will to live and to be happy.
strong women are not disappointed by their failures and they don’t hesitate when facing challenges and obstacles. Their desires are the driving force for them.
They have passion, energy and their goals guide their actions.
Strong women are decisive and determined. How can they not be?
When you know exactly what you want, then you don’t find it difficult to make decisions, because your decisions will always be the ones that bring you one step closer to your goals.
A strong woman does not waver and does not question herself. And even if her decision turns out to be wrong, she takes responsibility, accepts the consequences, reorganizes and finally moves on.
If you are a strong woman, then you are probably cool.
When life gets harder, a strong woman accepts the challenge. Because she has trained her brain to stay calm and look at life from a more balanced, less fearful perspective.
She gets some distance and focus on the situation, evaluates challenges objectively and is never overreacting to the small stuff.
But even when serious problems occur, a strong woman remains optimistic, with strong faith and confidence that in the end she will succeed.
She is a source of hope for those around her and even in moments when she feels she has no motivation and no energy left, she is still able to give to her loved ones.
A strong woman is obviously confident. She has done her self work and knows both her strengths and her weaknesses.
She identifies her natural talents and dynamic and utilizes them to be as productive as possible.
Her self esteem is not determined by the perceptions of others but by her own values and priorities.
