You see them all around you; women succeeding in all or many areas of live. They seem to have direction and know what they’re doing. They seem busy, satisfied, “together” and more attractive. You wonder how they manage to look so calm and collected, beautiful, and charming; when you know they work full-time, yet somehow still enjoy a full and happy home life.
How do these women do it? While there is no magical secret to success, there are a few characteristics that most sexy and successful women share. If you can adopt them in your own life, there’s no reason you can’t attain the same level of success.
Here are the top characteristics to being sexy and successful:
Women who succeed are willing to try, fail, and try again. You’ve heard the saying “no risk, no reward” and truly successful women embrace this idea whole-heartedly. In order to advance in any area of your life, you have to be willing to go out on a limb and take risks. But more than that, you must have the willpower to pick yourself up when you fall flat on your face, and continue on.
We are light years ahead of where females sat just a few generations ago (presumably in the kitchen, barefoot and pregnant… you know the stories… instead of the boardroom), but we still face a lot of hurdles when it comes to professional inclusion and progression. For that reason, women must use every tool in their arsenal in order to reach the same heights. They must garner a strong base of education and experience, and blend them with interpersonal skills to get ahead.
Many women in office settings suffer from the same disorder; an inability to speak up. Women are much more likely to downplay their own role and attribute successes to a team, instead of taking credit for their achievements. You must not only do well in your position in order to get promoted, you must be willing to market yourself as an asset and convince others of your value.
Women without ambition rarely achieve greatness. Queen Elizabeth I gave up the chance at a family (and had her own sister imprisoned) in order to rule England. Susan B. Anthony and many other suffragettes risked being ostracized and thrown in jail in order to spread the message of women’s equality. Throughout history, the most successful women have been willing to take control of their own lives and do whatever was necessary to reach their goals.
Without a firm belief in yourself, you cannot hope to achieve true success. Nobody wants to back someone who is uncertain about their own ability to follow through. Women who are self-assured inspire confidence in others. Believing in yourself and knowing that you are capable and self-sufficient will create so much success in your life, it will be amazing!
Being aware of your physical appearance is one thing, but being aware of your actions, behaviors, and attitude around others is quite another. While all these are important, being aware of your behavior and attitude, allows you to be more connected with those around you. If you’re abrasive or caddy, people will not want to be around you. If you are charming, funny, and AWESOME, you will be the life of the party.
