As a businesswoman, I am more often than not in rooms that are made up predominantly of men. This might seem intimidating to some, but to me, it can be a benefit. I know that as long as I come prepared and know what I’m discussing, the fact that I am a woman is what makes me unique. I’ve never felt as though it’s something I should be ashamed of, or that I have to deemphasize. And in maintaining this perspective, I have been able to consistently establish working relationships built on mutual respect and trust. No matter your gender, what most people respect is confidence in your own capabilities. Its true leaders who understand that they should not be surrounding themselves with those who are just like them, but with those who will challenge the boundaries of their thinking and bring different perspectives to light.

It’s my personal belief that someone’s insecurities are revealed in how they act towards others. For example, in the times that I have felt power struggles or have been unnecessarily challenged by individuals in a working environment, it was usually due to the fact that the person felt inferior in some way. The same could be said about a female businesswoman who enters a male-dominated environment and perceives her femininity as being seen as a weakness. If you go into a room thinking you’re going to have to fight against all the men, then that’s the fight you’re setting yourself up for. It makes you dwell on what you consider to be perceived as your weaknesses, as opposed to what your strengths, in truth, really are. In essence, it’s the Law of Attraction. And in that sense, if you initially put yourself in the role of a victim, it’s what you will become.

In her book, A Woman’s Worth, one of my favorite authors, Marianne Williamson writes, “You need not apologize for being brilliant, talented, gorgeous, rich, or smart.” And extending that train of thought, I don’t think we need to apologize for being feminine in any sense of the word, either. When I walk into a room, I’m proud to act like a woman, think like a woman, and look like a woman. I wear make-up, do my hair, and while I’m certainly partial to a power suit, it’s always cut to fit my curves.

We’ve all heard the phrases ‘law of attraction,’ ‘manifesting your dreams,’ and the ‘power of positive thinking’ at some point in our lives, but what do they actually mean? Even further, are these concepts actually real? Do they work? 
As far-fetched as thinking your dreams into reality may sound, I am a firm believer that this is indeed possible. And anecdotally speaking, the majority of my friends who have achieved overwhelming success in their lives believe in it too. That can’t just be a coincidence, can it?

A legacy is not something that is stagnant in time - it is something that is active and ongoing •
•
So how do you leave your own legacy? I think the first step is to be true to yourself and to listen to your heart in order to truly find your passion. It’s when things feel right deep down inside of you that you can harness your true power. Another important factor is to keep one’s ego in check. We may not all leave this earth with our name in lights, and maybe that’s a good thing. It keeps our intentions true.

Something that has brought me great success in my career is the ability to find common ground with people from all different backgrounds and walks of life, working with people from myriad countries, ethnicities, political backgrounds and religions. This has allowed me to find success, because when we are able to join forces with someone who is different from us, we open ourselves up to an entirely new world of resources and ways of thinking. When people bond together over an ocean of difference, there is a bridge that is built. And it’s from the bridging of these worlds, that a more powerful, and successful, environment can be cultivated. Lean on each other, learn from each other, and flourish. #TheYearofTolerance 🇦🇪
