MINI SERIES 4 of 6
A knowledgeable woman is a powerful woman. Finding power from within relies a lot on how much you know. Knowledge is power. Being a boss requires you to sharpen your skills and continue the art of learning. Let’s dive into this!
Knowledge empowers you to problem solve. As a woman in leadership, it’s important to continue evolving in your chosen career in order to lead effectively. You need to know how to problem solve. Nobody is willing to follow a leader who is ignorant in their field. Constantly expanding your knowledge and studying empowers not only yourself but also the team around you.
Knowledge creates confidence. We talk about confidence a lot in this series, and for good reason. It is one of the best indicators of a person who takes action on what they say. When you are scared and timid, it’s likely that you are not familiar or knowledgeable about what you are trying to achieve or problem solve. You can tell when somebody is confident in what they are saying or selling; they will shine and be more than happy to help. Knowledge is one of the fastest ways to feel confident in your field of expertise. It’s okay to not have all the answers in those moments – use them as opportunities to study, learn, and gain that knowledge.
Knowledge embodies success. When you are knowledgeable in something, opportunities start to come your way. Here are some good quotes that emphasize the importance of knowledge:
“When you undervalue what you do, the world will undervalue who you are.” – Oprah Winfrey
“Be a lifelong student. The more you learn, the more you earn and the more self-confidence you have.” – Brian Tracy
“Any fool can know. The point is to understand.” – Albert Einstein
“I don’t know everything. I know a fraction of what there is to know, and I don’t think I will ever know everything. But it’s important to me to constantly challenge myself, to understand different viewpoints and nuance in topics, so I can feel qualified in what I say. I don’t want to preach falsely about things I’m unaware of.” – Yara Shahidi
Find that thing that makes you, you, and be the best at it! Grow, learn, and expand your knowledge.
