How to Be a Successful African Woman


Successful people do not sit in a spot and expect good things to come their way, they work their way to success. The road to success is rough therefore to attain that goal of yours, you have to work really hard, only through hard work and determination can one reach the top.

Discipline is the first thing to take to heart, one has to stay disciplined and study hard to reach that rank. The best students in class would not be the best if they are not well disciplined with their studies. A successful students shuns every form of distraction.
Recently, my friend and I decided to eat in an eatery after several hours of study, she didn’t have much on her so I decided to save money, I ordered for something cheaper than what i wanted, that got me thinking ” what exactly do we settle for in our lives because they seem easier or cheaper than what we really want?”

The truth is, to reach the top or attain your goal, you have to go for what motivates you, do not settle for less. Think about what motivates and drives you, what makes you feel fulfilled.
Also, be aware of your value and purpose. Everyone is created differently, never try to be like someone and never compare yourself to someone else. Be the best at who you already are, ‘follow you passion’ that’s the word.

Life is hard and nothing of value is ever handed to us. Pain and discomfort are part of the process. Learn to struggle and never feel entitled to anything you did not swear or struggle for “your struggle builds your muscle”. Push past your fear, never use excuses and learn to roll up your sleeves.

Utilize materials that helps expand your knowledge base. Do well to also take advise from those at the top, that will force you to push yourself harder to reach the top.
Always go for your goals and never settle for second best.
Next time, I’ll order what i really want to eat.

More so, everyone has that talent that is untapped, make use of it.
Winners would always be winners because they do what winners do. No winner is a victim of circumstances because they take circumstances as new opportunities. The difference between the winner and the loser is not intelligence but drive and initiative.

No matter how scared a successful person might be, he makes sure he achieve his goal ‘do it scared’ and by doing it, you will create a momentum that will lead to progress and results.
Everyone wants to see himself or herself at the top, they want to succeed by hook or crook, but dubious means would do you no good, like I said earlier, only through hard work and determination can you reach the top therefore work hard, think high and dream big.

Woman Means Confidence



What gives you the assurance that after taking that leap of faith, you will succeed? What makes you so sure that tomorrow would be better than today?

In the midst of all these doubts and uncertainties, Confidence is the fuel that drives you each and every single day towards success.

In this post, six women tell us about Confidence, what it means to them and why it has been the most important catalyst for their success.

In my own definition, a confident woman is one who is very comfortable in her own skin and in her own shoes. She is the woman who oozes an aura of self-security around her. She is not afraid to declare her mistakes, yet she goes a step further to use her mess as a message for others. She has an ambition about her, a determination, motivation and perseverance and continuously achieves her goals.

She is that woman with a huge smile and warm ambiance and aura about her. She’s got that posture of charge and control. She doesn’t put others down, those who seem different to her, rather she understands that everyone has her own place. She has a sexual lure about her, but one that doesn’t mean promiscuous. She is poised, assertive and classy.

She’s learnt that you have to let go of your timidities and self-doubts in order to discover the passion and possibilities; the woman who has been able to curb her fears and reach for the starts in her life’s pursuit. She’s living life on purpose and understands her gifts and is willing to share them. She knows her style and works it well. Being fashionable or popular is not on her list of priorities, yet she owns whatever room she walks into because she wears her confidence as a badge of honor!

Finally, a confident woman is that woman who is constantly growing, relentlessly thriving to be better. She is always on her toes, working and contributing her own quota to the world; knowing it’s her time and her place to stand up and do that very thing that she has been called to do.

Confidence is something that grows. When you know your strengths and work on them, it develops you. Confidence can also be owning up to your weaknesses helps you not to commit to things you know you can’t do, asking for help when necessary and helps you to improve.

Confidence for me also means loving myself for who I am, and for who I am not.

Confidence is a genre of quiet strength. It’s a quality that comes with knowing your onions. It’s beyond the society’s definition of being on top of your game because sometimes, at face value, a confident person would not have it all together but there is this inner assurance that you are going to get back on your ‘A’ game eventually, be it tomorrow or next year.

Confidence is staring out of the window during a rainy night, looking into the darkness and seeing light. Confidence is knowing that when life throws you lemons, you will always make lemonade or better still Zobo!
