7 things successful women do

You can't do the same thing as everyone else and expect different results.

It’s not favor and neither is it luck. It’s all hard work and the following similar characteristics that they all share.

Success comes in various forms but successful people have a lot in common.

Here are 7 things that they do differently.

1. They’re unstoppable

Passion is the genesis of genius. If you love what you do then nothing can stop you from getting it done. Chicago Tribune describes Academy Award winning actress, Lupita Nyong’o as a passionate woman with conviction and drive. Get the picture?

2. They are risk takers

Richard Bradson of Virgin Group says, “My attitude has always been, if you fall flat on your face, at least you’re moving forward.” Successful women are risk takers in almost everything they do. Sylvia Njoki left mainstream newspaper to focus on her blog that has now been nominated for various global awards.

3. They marry well or not at all.

Successful women know the important of settling with the right men. They won’t settle for less than their worth. A good example would be media personality Julie Gichuru and her spouse Antony Gichuru who has been a great supporter of her work and ambitions. Another? Mitchelle Obama. Many also remain single like Oprah Winfrey.

4. Often, they become the boss.

Naturally they aim for leadership. A successful woman recognizes the power in having authority to control how things need to be done. When the first lady Margaret Kenyatta wanted to raise funds for 36 mobile clinics, she started the beyond zero campaign that ran for three years before cancelling it this year.

5. She’s her number one fan

Amidst the struggles that come with being an alpha woman in the corporate world, successful women are their own best fans. They are confident in themselves and believe in what they have to offer. Akothee was married at age 14 and had to go clear high school in 2004 as a mother of three before finding her niche in travel. Now she is an achieved artiste, a household name and the proud founder of Akothee Safaris.

6. They don’t mind failing, if it means to learn

A successful woman understands that failure is a part of success. She won’t stop trying out new things just because others failed. Author Paulo Coelho said, “There’s only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve, the fear of failure.”

7. She has a lot of ventures.

No millionaire has only source of income. Check out Julie Gichuru with her Mimi Online shop. A successful woman invests in small businesses that earn her the extra shillings and at the same time teach her how to operate a business.
