Flying with Margaret Thatcher

I have always admired Margaret Thatcher. She was nicknamed the “Iron Lady,” and served as the prime minister of England from 1979 to 1990. She did not realize her destiny. In fact she was quoted as saying “I don’t think there will be a woman prime minister in my lifetime,” during a 1973 television appearance.

This is one of my favorite quotes by her:

Being powerful is like being a lady. If you have to tell people you are, you aren't.
— Margaret Thatcher
I think we can all apply this to aspects in our lives. I also think we all know people who run around announcing their greatness to the world. Those people usually do not rank high on our lists.
Maintain your power with grace and dignity. That is the best way to succeed.
