We, as people, in general cannot survive on our own, we need the knowledge and guidance of others to progress in life, because I feel in reality, one can’t learn it all from a book. Books cannot teach you about dealing with a bully, working with peers or colleagues, dealing with people/situations with more tact, etc. How-to books and instruction manuals won’t show you quick ‘n easy shortcuts when using systems to get the job done quicker or how to give that vending machine a little nudge so to not lose your last five rand lol… only another person can share that with you, from their experiences or from what they learnt from someone else.
For the most part, it is widely said that women can never rule the world, as we cannot seem to work together, and I strongly believe, that can only be changed by us (women). I, for one, know I wouldn’t be where I am today if it were not for some amazing women that added to my growth and knowledge, no matter how big or small their contributions. It may not be in an obvious kind of way (its the little things that count), but for that I will always be grateful and be more than willing to help the next woman in her journey.
Just a random thought I wanted to share with you all, in the hope that maybe next time another girl/lady/woman asks for your help, do it with a smile…
