It’s Not All About Money

Women are usually not taught the secret wisdom of creating wealth and exercising power. Studies reveal that the sexes view money and power very differently. A man’s self-esteem comes from his achievements and power is the ultimate goal. A woman gains her self esteem from relationships; power is a means to an end.

Men desire the respect of the office place while women yearn for the opportunity to help others, grow personally, and live genuinely. Women tend to fear power. This fear of power is a fear of finding out who they really are and fulfilling their purpose in life in the biggest way possible.

The word power comes from the Latin word, potere (‘to be able’) and means the great or marked ability to do or act. This definition can be interpreted in many different ways, especially between the genders. How do you define power as a woman? Through business success, money, or a successful relationship? Do you think power hinders or strengthens your success in life?
