Margaret Thatcher was loved and hated equally for some of her controversial policies but she never gave up. She was known as the ‘Iron lady’ for her uncompromising politics and leadership style. From being a grocer’s daughter to graduating from Oxford University to becoming a bannister, she went on to becoming Britain’s first and to date, only female Prime Minister elected in 1979 and the country’s fifth longest serving leader.
“If you set out to be liked, you would be prepared to compromise on anything at any time, and you would achieve nothing.”
LESSON: By focusing on getting people to like us, we’re losing a part of who we are. Mute the noise around you … and just be yourself.
