Living like a #GirlBoss is more than being an actual boss. It’s about taking control of your life and planning your goals. So whether you want success, happiness, serenity, a great job or a great body in life, you can’t get there unless you know exactly where you’re headed. And that’s where being a #GirlBoss comes into it. So if you want to live like a #GirlBoss (and I mean who doesn’t?!) then here are some top tips to help you run both your work and personal life like a boss.
Have a Vision
Big business and brands have a clear vision for what they want to achieve, so what’s your vision? Do you want to change careers? Start your own business? Be fit and healthy? Have children? Buy a house? Travel the world? What ever it is , think big. If your vision doesn’t scare you, then you’re probably not dreaming big enough.
Break the Vision Down into Smaller Steps
So you’ve got your vision sorted. Great! But that’s just the first step. You now need to work out the smaller steps that will help you move towards your dream. Want to change careers? Can you intern in that field first to get some experience? Are you happy to forgo luxuruies to finance your business? Almost anything is possible if you can do the small steps required to reach your goals.
Play to Your Strengths
Successful companies focus on what they do best. Whether that’s selling a lifestyle, gadget or telling a story. So focus on what you do best, whether that’s being a great communicator, good with numbers or being an IT genius.
And Enlist Help for Your Weaknesses
Once you’ve worked out your strengths, enlist help for your weaknesses. Successful people have no shame in enlisting help from other people to help them reach their goals. After all, the world is full of people who can help you if you’re brave enough to ask in the first place.
Focus on the Experience More than the Outcome
Every experience, whether it’s good or bad, offers an opportunity to learn and move forward. So whatever happens along the way, learn the lesson and move on.
But only calculated ones! If you want to really live like a #GirlBoss then you can’t play it safe. Weigh up the pros and cons in your head and then listen to that little voice that is telling you what to do, even if it’s out of your comfort zone.
Have big dreams, break them down into smaller steps, surround yourself with good people, play to your strengths, get help with your weaknesses, learn from success and failure, and do things that scare you just a bit. You’ll be living like a #GirlBoss in no time.
