Women are often tagged ‘tough, relentless, strong’, even ‘ruthless’ in some cases. They are not treated as equals with men. Hence, they have to demand what they want and they have to work twice if not three times as hard as the men to reach the top. This is not an easy feat and it takes a strong mentality. Who are mentally strong women? Let’s look at 7 characteristics of a mentally strong woman:
A Risk Taker and a Good Decision Maker
Instead of hiding behind others, waiting for decisions to be made and simply nodding her head in agreement. The mentally strong woman takes charge and makes good decisions. She remains level headed as she calculates the pros and cons of the risks she takes. She does not hesitate to do so when she has to.
