Gone are the days where women were weak and dependent. Nowadays most women strive to be strong and independent. No matter what others say, it’s good to be an empowered woman and encourage other women to be stronger and happier as well. It doesn’t mean that men are weak, but sometimes you can cope with a situation without their help. Follow these little tips to become an empowered woman.
1. Don’t be ashamed of your independence
I have always wondered why so many lonely women prefer to stay home instead of going out. I carried out a few surveys and was astonished by the results. Many women said that they are ashamed of their independence and they are afraid to go to a restaurant or cinema alone. It’s ridiculous. Women should never be ashamed of being independent. If you don’t have a partner or friend, it doesn’t mean that you should stay home and avoid all social gatherings. Be proud of yourself and show everyone that you are an empowered woman.
2. Stay positive
The power of positive thinking is immense. Positivity breeds success, happiness and positive actions that help you inspire other people to think positively and cope with the hard times with less stress. All powerful women are positive and they tackle all their problems with a smile on their faces. Don’t let anyone and anything to bring you down. If you need to cope with a heartbreak, do it. You are smart, strong and beautiful and you will definitely find your Mr. Right.
3. Speak up
If you want to say something, say it! Don’t keep silent when you want to talk. Most women are afraid to express their point of view and their hide their emotions, feelings and thoughts from others. Empowered women are not afraid to speak up and they are never ashamed of their thoughts.

4. Learn how to say ‘no’
If you don’t want to work on your weekend, say ‘no’ to your coworker or boss. If you don’t want to go on a date, say ‘no’ even if that guy is nice. Doing too much things at once won’t make you an empowered woman and doing things you don’t want to do won’t make you happier. Just because you are strong and smart doesn’t mean you should help everyone and do everything.
5. Cope with your problems on your own
Every woman in the world can cope with any problem on her own. You just need to believe in your power and your abilities. In order to become an empowered woman, learn how to fix your problems without your parent’s or partner’s help. It may be difficult at first, especially if you’ve never handled any hard situation alone. Once you start, don’t give up no matter what. Coping with your problems on your own will help you feel more confident and empowered and you will show other women that they are strong enough to do the same.
6. Empower other women to live a happy life
Powerful women always help others. They volunteer at shelters, help people to cope with the hard times and inspire them to live a happy life. Set a good example and show other women that they can be as strong and independent as you are. Help them to embrace themselves and celebrate their lives.

7. Set powerful goals
Life is not complete without goals. They help us reach success, become happy and make all our dreams come true. Every week or month set a few goals and make plans how to reach them. Each morning (or evening) create a to-do list of all of the things you want to do that day and make sure you do everything possible to accomplish them. If your goal is to get a promotion, consider taking extra tasks, reading a lot of book and studying every single day to reach that goal. You will feel more empowered once you get a promotion (or achieve any other goal!)
Being an empowered woman is not as difficult as you think. Find that power in yourself and use it to improve people’s lives as well as your own life. Although men are afraid of powerful women, it doesn’t mean you should be weak in order to find your love. Be yourself and people will love you no matter how powerful you are. Are you an empowered woman? Do you think it’s good for women to be independent?
