Remember the movie Revenge of the Nerds?
Well who would've thought that the day of dating nerds and them becoming the new "hot guys" would ever come? The time has arrived and women everywhere agree.
But nothing could be better than what Mr. Mack Zuckerberg had to say to a beloved grandmother regarding nerd stardom.
A loving grandmother had commented to Mr. Zuckerberg that she encouraged her granddaughter to "date the nerd in school, he may turn out to be a Mark Zuckerberg."
While this may sound like some great advice, the advice Mark Zuckerberg returned was impeccable. He said,
"Even better would be to encourage them to *be* the nerd in their school," he wrote, "so they can be the next successful inventor."
I couldn't agree more with Mark.
What is it about dating the nerd, or the high powered CEO that drives everyone wild?
Noticed I said "everyone". Yes, while women love a powerful man, men love a powerful woman just as much.
It's more than meets the eye. When we see someone that's powerful, what we're recognizing is someone who has stepped into their own. Meaning, they've figured out who they are and they've been powerful enough to choose to live life out of that.
So the nerd that creates the next invention that changes the world, realizes that his brain is his gift and in doing so, he's owned a part of who he is and has allowed himself to be powerful in that right.
It's really simple. That's why the girl who falls for the guy that has everyone scratching their heads as they whisper "How did he get her?", is the same guy who's figured out what contributes to what makes him great and he's owned it.
To a woman and a man, this is sexy.
Own who you are and let yourself be powerful in it.
