2017 ‘s celebration of women all over the world has given rise to many movements for women liberation and empowerment. We see calls for girl-child education, gender equality in the corporate environment, rape and incest protests, to name a few.
This is a welcome development.
We have moved from the place where women were their worst enemies to women now helping and inspiring others.
We definitely achieve more together.
The complete woman as I’d like to call her possesses these three cardinal qualities.
The complete woman is one who is secure in the knowledge of who she is and what she is about. She doesn’t talk herself down and expects others not to as well. She has a healthy self-esteem and exudes self-confidence.
She has a relationship with God and knows why she is here on earth. Or at least, is conscious that she isn’t just here on earth to eat, sleep, marry, have children and die.
She is driven and passionate about what she does.
The She is Complete Summit that held in February had much to talk about women knowing and fulfilling their purpose. Watch the replays on Youtube.
She believes in herself and is committed to building the best out of what she has.
Poise can be described as graceful and elegant bearing in a person.
It is not about the clothes or fancy shoes. It is the crown that makes the queen and not the other way round like our dear Mrs. UN Tourism tells us.
Having the ability to be graceful is a quality that feminism robs women of.
The elegance that comes with great self-confidence.
She maintains her cool in the face of much turbulence. She doesn’t fly off the handle at every provocation. Sometimes, people will call it being fake, but hey, there’s already so much pain in the world.
You can create peace in chaos. Challenges are the stepping stones to greatness.
A complete woman doesn’t just live for today. Her sense of purpose drives her to leave a legacy. Any woman who is concerned about what happens to others even when she isn’t there is someone to take note of.
She is more.
A complete woman is more than wife, cook, seamstress, driver, school teacher, bank officer, etc. She is more because she looks at the big picture.
She often delays gratification in order to grow something bigger. She has a capacity of greater impact and isn’t afraid to reach for it.
Like the saying goes,
“Have a dream so big that you can’t achieve it until you become the person who can”.
Dream big and then dream some more.
Mrs Udo Okonjo clearly drives home these points in her life and via the IWOW network.
At IWOW (Inspired Women of Worth Network), where the singular objective is to help women become stronger, more influential members of society. This is achieved by organising events that act as a platform to teach and showcase new standards for their lives and achieving success in their careers and businesses.
Here is your opportunity to level up!

It’s time to break the glass ceilings. #NoGlassCeiling.
In her own words, Mrs Udo Okonjo (fondly called RPD) says,
“You have dwelt too long at this mountain. You have stayed in this place of your comfort for more than is acceptable. You have settled for less than your potential and refused to unleash your full power. The land of possibilities is waiting for you. Why do you stay stuck when you can move? Why do you remain in the same location when your heart cries for more. That restlessness you feel is for a reason. This current location is no longer serving you. Your current platform has become too small. It’s time to move. It’s time to go Mega, to go global, to stretch beyond your limits. Search out new opportunities. Seek new platforms. Create new experiences. Carve out a new niche. Stop settling my dearest.”
So what say you?
Become the best!
