Lessons we can learn from a wonder woman
Wonder Woman is fictional: a superhero, but there is much we can learn from her about life and work. At the beginning and end of the “Wonder Woman” movie we see her working in an office. Even working in the middle of the movie. The most important work of all: save the world. While we can not be superheroes like her, there are things we can learn from her approach to the challenges that might be useful in our professional worlds.
1. IF YOU ARE PASSIONATE SOMETHING: CHASE IT
Diana, also known as Wonder Woman or Wonder Woman, has a passion for sword fighting and combat from a young age, but her mother does not approve. It is clearly in his blood as he looks at his superiors and eventually goes against his mother’s wishes to learn from his aunt. There is something to be said about the passions of childhood, as many people recognize, as they get older, that something that children enjoyed or became their profession or later stimulated a career change. What did you like to do when you were young? Do you miss him? Find a way to bring it back to your life either full time or in moments of disconnection.
2. BELIEVE IN YOURSELF: DO NOT WAIT FOR OTHERS TO IMPOSE YOU
It is not easy to believe in their abilities and maintain those convictions. We all have doubts about our abilities or abilities to move to the next level. When he trains, Diana’s aunt tells him that he is stronger than he is demonstrating and that he must believe in himself. What are your weak points? Which are your strenghts? Write them and look at your own list at the beginning of each day or week. In other words: do what you need to maintain your confidence to the fullest.
3. DO NOT FOLLOW THE GREAT BULK: LOOK FOR YOUR OWN PATH AND DO NOT LEAVE IT
This does not mean that you should go and do something totally out of place that brings you problems with your boss but you can be part of your company and team culture and have your own thoughts and opinions. If you’ve been in a job for more than six months, think you’re doing well and do not be afraid to make suggestions. If you have thoughts about how the team could work smarter and improve the processes, share it. You may want to execute it first by a trusted advisor or partner to review your focus and tone before delivering the message.
4. IF YOUR CHIEF IS TAKING A DECISION THAT IS NOT ETHICAL: DO NOT STAY WITHOUT SAYING ANYTHING
If you think your boss is doing something unethical or illegal, follow the company’s policy or talk to human resources, but do something. While this may be risky in any way, your professional reputation in the future may be compromised. It is necessary to weigh the pros and cons of talking against the boss and see how it affects or can affect. But if you think something is not right: do not regret not saying anything.
5. SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO SACRIFICE YOUR OWN DESIRES FOR THE TEAM
There will be times when they do not want to stay up late or take on the boring task that the boss gave in the staff meeting. And you should not always say “yes” and become the person everyone takes advantage of. There will be times when you have to be a team player and put the needs of boss or team ahead of almost everything.
None of us can match the power of Wonder Woman, but we can learn from their approach to life and attack our fears to achieve our professional goals. Those superpowers we can make ours with effort and perseverance. For more information you can visit our website http://educacionytecnologia.tk
