Can You Love And Still Be Powerful?

Many have formed a misconception that love makes you weak and that if you show love, you will not be powerful. We live in a society where we are prone to think that if we show love, we are less likely to get ahead. We tend to think that in order to be a successful woman, love can’t come first. We tend to think that in order to be successful, we need to have a cold heart. We tend to think that love will leave us too vulnerable. And, especially in a corporate setting, we tend to think that love does not belong. We tend to think that if we show too much love, we will be taken advantage of and we will be considered an easy target. So, many of us have decided to form these walls to block love from leaving or entering.
When we usually think of a successful person, we don’t automatically think that a successful person has the trait of using their heart to their greatest ability. We don’t usually think of love. This needs to change.
I say that loving strongly is proof that a successful woman has a heart that can carry anything brought its way. A successful woman has a heart that has passion. A successful woman has a heart that may have been hurt at times, but nothing was able to taint the way it loves. Perseverance is a word that comes to mind when thinking of the heart. A successful woman will have a persevering heart. A successful woman will always find a way to love more. She will just know her limitations and quickly realize who is deserving of her and who isn’t. She will know her worth. She will have self-love. She will love others. Yet still, she will be powerful and successful.

Here are 5 habits to form in order to remember that you can love and still be powerful:

1. MAKE DECISIONS WITH YOUR HEART, TOO.

Successful women include their heart when they make decisions. They have emotional intelligence and learn to balance their heart and their mind. They make decisions with their mind, heart, and soul. They don’t neglect an integral part of themselves: the heart. If they were to do that, they would not be using their full selves. They would not be reaching their full potential.

2. DON’T NEGLECT HOW YOU FEEL

Your heart speaks to you. Do you pay attention? Learn how to listen to what your heart is saying. It is important to learn your heart’s language. It is important to learn what silence is saying, too. Sometimes, if you ignore it for too long, you can lose focus and lose track of what it is that you truly want. If you neglect how you feel for too long, it will catch up to you and you will end up feeling robotic instead of feeling human. It won’t feel natural and something will feel like it is missing. Your heart knows its power even when you forget.

3. DO EVERYTHING WITH PASSION.

Love lives inside of passion. When you have passion, there is a drive of love that lives behind that passion that fuels you to keep going. When you only listen to your mind and ignore the love that lives inside of you, you don’t do things fully. When you only listen to one part of you, you only give a piece of yourself. When you follow something with every part of you, you are all in. You will get further.

4. LEARN TO SEE LOVE IN EVERYTHING.

There is a bit of love in everything that exists. There is beauty in everything. When you train your mind to listen to your heart, you learn to appreciate everything more. You don’t have to hurt others in order to get ahead. You can be kind, keep your integrity, be honest, and show love to those around you. Just be aware of those who try to take advantage of you.

5. REMEMBER THAT YOUR HEART HAS NEVER FAILED YOU.

Your heart is still beating to this day, with a force so strong that it has made you who you are. The love that you have inside of you makes you human. No matter how much you may have thought that your heart was broken, it wasn’t. You don’t have to lose your human to become successful. You don’t have to become robotic in order to be successful. If anything, your heart will push you to great lengths. You just have to learn how to use it and balance it with your mind and with your soul.
