Beginning of January – the time when most people have set their new years resolutions and probably still stick to them, at least for some more days.
Let me tell you one thing: If Being a kickass Girlboss is not on your new years goal list yet – you should rethink your goals!
For me, 2018 was a year of many changes and transformations – most importantly I changed.
I managed to step out of my comfort zone many times and discovered what I really want to be: A strong, independent, successful woman who is ruling her own empire and business.
And that’s what every woman should consider!
Here is how to take your first steps to becoming a real Girlboss and strong woman:
Know your Why
There is nothing more important than knowing what your purpose on this planet is. What are you crazy about? What is the one thing you can’t stop thinking about?
Find out what it is and stick to it!
Life is way too short to bother doing things that we don’t like.
And most importantly: You are too good to do mediocre stuff!
Once you are clear about your purpose, your vision – you will want to make that vision a reality – no matter how hard you have to work!
Don’t fear anything
To actually find your why, you must be willing to step out of your comfort zone.
To be honest, no great thing comes easy.
You have to put the work in.
And this might sometimes also mean doing stuff that is uncomfortable.
And sure – it’s hard.
But will you die?!
No matter how hard a situation is, how uncomfortable we are – in the end, we always grow!
We always learn more from mistakes than from wins.
So get out there and try out as much as you can.
Trust me, finding the one thing that you are crazy about will be worth all the struggle!
Set clear goals
If you are not setting goals yet, you have to immediately start doing so.
There is one key rule in life: Only what gets measured can get improved.
Sure, you are striving to become the best version of yourself.
You probably want to become fitter, more successful or more influential – but what does that mean?
If you really want to have an impact in this world and especially if you want to get to big places in your life, you have to know your goals.
Work with numbers. Measure your progress and define KPI’s for your own life!
Most of the time we succeed more than we actually think. Having clear goals will be a huge motivational booster!
There is hardly anyone who achieved big success by walking alone.
If you want to be a true, impactful Girlboss you have to partner up.
You have to lift others and let them lift you.
We often tend to be egoistic and don’t want to accept help as we see it as a sign of weakness but that’s completely wrong.
You should focus on your strengths and power up to cover your weaknesses!
Look around – there are probably dozens of communities to join. No matter in which field you are active. At least, you can always join online communities.
Remember: Your network is your net worth.
I know, you want to have it all and be the #1, however, by having a proper network (especially one of other empowering women!) you will always be one step ahead!
There is nothing more beautiful than sharing goals and working towards them with a bunch of people who are also highly motivated and driven.
I am sure you started 2019 with a lot of good intentions and New Years Resolutions – so let’s make them count!
Step out of your comfort zone, take all chances to discover your true passion, find your tribe of other Girlbosses and let’s rock 2019 together!
