Learning from: Margaret Thatcher

“What is success? I think it is a mixture if having a flair for the thing you are doing; knowing that it is not enough, that you have got to have a sense of hard work and a certain sense of purpose.”

Per Margaret Thatcher

I was nine when Margaret Thatcher became Primeminister. I was eleven when she led the country into the Falklands war. In otherwords, in my formative years, when I was beginning to learn that I would have a choice when I grew up about what I did, a woman was in charge. At that time and ever since it has never entered my head that a woman could not achieve whatever she wished to do career wise because all you had to do was look at Margaret. Whether you agree with her politics or not and whatever your view of the social and economic consequences of her time in power, I doubt anyone could disagree that she left a powerful legacy to women in the form of the example of her determination and success.
Thank you Margaret. RIP.
