How To Be A Boss Lady
Are you ready to take charge of your life? With these tips, you will unleash your most confident and unstoppable version. The boss lady we always wanted to be is relentless! She is a badass who only stops when she gets what she wants. Her standards are high, and she doesn’t settle for crumbs.
Fierce and unf*ckwithable! Have you ever wondered how to be a boss lady?
These all sound amazing but don’t get me wrong. This girl is far from perfect.
Being a boss lady doesn’t mean you must have everything figured out and know exactly how you are going to get there.
The only thing you know for certain is that you will get there. The how? You’ll find out as you go.
That is no problem because you’re resourceful and will ask for help when needed. Without having all the answers, you still CHOOSE to put yourself out there, risking failure and feeling shame, embarrassment and humiliation.
To become this lady you need to start thinking, feeling, and acting as if you were already her.
For the women who want to kick some serious ass, you ought to be willing to do what you’ve never done before and get out of your comfort zone. Opportunities may come to you, but you wait for nothing. You go grab them.
Our lady makes quick decisions and wastes no time overthinking. There is no right or wrong. She KNOWS a decision made is a thousand times better than getting stuck in indecision and confusion.
Sadly, many people spend their whole lives not knowing what to do because they can’t decide. But that is not you!
As a boss lady, you don’t sit around waiting for things to fall in your lap. Well… actually… that is not exactly true. Sometimes you do indulge in some Netflix binge-watching (Outlander anyone?) (I told you she is not perfect) but you do snap out of it and get back to work on your dreams.
This girl has big goals, and she takes matters into her own hands to create her future. She knows what she wants. 110% committed to herself, she takes action and keeps her eyes and ears peeled to what is happening around her, ready to rise to the occasion.
Life comes with ups and downs, and she understands that anything worth having takes time, dedication, and hard work. Our lady is not afraid to roll up her sleeves and get her hands dirty.
How to Be A Boss Lady Guide in 10 Steps
Don’t worry if you are still not sure how to be a boss lady. Chances are, you are already one and just need some reinforcement to bring your A-game.
Here is a ten steps guide to help you step into your power and own your awesomeness to confirm your boss lady status.
1. F*ck Perfectionism
First of all, perfectionism is boring. The perfect good girl in the movies is usually annoying. Hard to relate, you don’t care much about her.
When you acknowledge that perfection is an ideal that is not attainable, it becomes easier to try new things and give yourself permission to do it imperfectly. You understand that to cross the Pacific ocean you may need to navigate through turbulent waters while learning the ropes.
Our boss lady throws herself in the ocean with a life jacket. She is not a great swimmer, and she even might swallow a lot of water, but she won’t die.
Focusing on progress and aiming to do a bit better (not perfect!) every day helps you see mistakes as lessons and not a sign of the universe to drop everything and go hide. You are earning experience and learning what works and what doesn’t.
There is no failure—just lessons teaching you to be wiser and smarter. Progress is measurable, and settling for doing the best you can with what you have doesn’t get you stuck in overthinking and perfectionism. It gets you results!
Your eye is on the prize and your focus is on the very next step, and that will keep you moving forward toward what you want.
2. Choose Your Poison
I won’t deny change is hard but it’s also inevitable. People change. The weather, the time, and the world change.
It would be impossible for you to stay the same while everything around you is changing. Humans beings are meant to grow and evolve. What you want today is not the same as ten years ago. Your life is not the same, and neither are you.
You can choose the direction your life is gonna go, a boss lady move, or you can let life decide for you. An approach that will leave you helpless with a life that you might not recognize as your own.
To live an extraordinary life you need to stop avoiding change. No one transforms their lives by doing the things they’ve always done.
It’s not easy to embrace the unknown, but you dig deep and find the courage to do it because you deserve to have what you want.
When you’re going through a transition, it’s helpful to create certainty for yourself. Think about your routine, the people surrounding you, the time you go to bed and wake up, what you eat, how you dress and treat yourself.
Focusing on those things is a great reminder that you’re actually the boss of your life. It’s all in your control regqrdless of what is happening around you. Even though you are scared, your desire to succeed is far greater than your fear.
As time goes by and the more obstacles you encounter, the better you’ll get at overcoming them. After a while, you’ll gain enough confidence to face anything and make life happens FOR you.
3. Know Your Worth
It is crucial to recognize your worth and stay true to yourself. You may not be exactly where you planned to be, but you know you are on your way to a better life.
People will always have an opinion on how you should do things, but ultimately you are the one responsible for making the decisions.
A boss lady doesn’t compromise her happiness, nor does she do anything that goes against her core values. They are not up for discussion.
There is no question about your potential. You are continually improving, and today you are better than yesterday.
Success is certain, and you just need to be patient and stay committed.
#4 Anything Is Possible
Whatever your goals are, you are focused on achieving them. Impossible is a limitation many people impose on themselves. You are not like most people.
Some may call you a dreamer for going after greatness. For you and me, you are claiming the VIP spot that is already reserved for you.
It’s your life, and you don’t give anyone’s permission to dictate what you can and cannot do.
Aim for the stars and don’t settle for mediocrity. The sky’s the limit!
#5 Bounce Back
Boss women don’t give up. Ever! It doesn’t matter how many times you have failed, crumbled, and fall. You always pick yourself up, fix your crown, and continue going.
Some days are harder than others, but you are resilient. You understand hardships are just another step of the journey and part of the process.
Your plan may need to be adjusted, ideas revisited, but you keep at it, hustling and fighting to claim your space.
Nothing can bring you down. You got superpowers!
#6 Invest In Yourself
The best investment you can make is in yourself, and that is where you will get the best return for your moolah. You are your greatest asset!
Spend time and money on your personal development. Take courses, read at least 15 minutes a day, be curious, start a business, learn a new skill, and stay committed to self-improvement.
Look after yourself mentally and physically and follow a healthy lifestyle so you can enjoy a better quality of life.
#7 Don't Try To Reinvent The Wheel
Most books and courses are the results of years of study, research, and life experiences compiled into one product so regular folks, like us, can acquire the same knowledge but much quicker.
Boss ladies are smart cookies and would rather learn from a specialist that has already gone through the hoops and is spilling the beans for you to get things right from the first time, instead of reinventing the wheel.
Using up-to-date information that is readily available to you and has been tested and proven to be effective, can save you years of research and trial and error attempts.
#8 You Are The Captain Of The Ship
My dear, you are the boss! That means you are on the driver’s seat and decides which direction to go.
Life can be messy, and some days you may not show up as your best self. Hey, no one is perfect, and we all have our bad days.
Still, you take the time to recharge and fix what is not going so well so you can get back to your captain post.
Rarely you lose your temper and can have a controversial conversation without looking like a lunatic. You remain cool as a cucumber!
You are in control of your emotions.
#9 Follow The Leader
In your industry, you know the best of the best. You follow them on social media, consume their products, listen to their podcasts, read their blogs, and even get them to mentor you (shhh they might not know that, but they do!).
Some boss ladies take a step further and hire a coach to help them focus on what moves the needle and solves their problems concerning their lives and businesses. This is real bad@ss stuff!
#10 Negativity Doesn't Get To You
Negativity is not welcomed near you. You have built a shield of protection and do not give a seat to anyone that doesn’t bring anything good to the table.
Negative criticism that doesn’t add any value goes in one ear and out to the other. You don’t take it personally and are in no way affected by it.
Time is precious, and you don’t waste it with petty stuff. You don’t entertain a relationship that is not healthy, or that is a source of stress and bad energy.
How To Be A Boss Lady And Unstoppable
Let me set this straight. A boss lady has her moments of self-doubt, and some days she doesn’t even act like herself.
What sets her apart from other women is that she doesn’t allow fear and insecurity to rule her life.
Despite all the challenges, she keeps moving forward, putting one foot in front of the other. Nothing deviates her from her goals. She is fierce! And unstoppable!
Because you are human, you make mistakes, but don’t play the blame game. You own your shortcomings.
The great part about being a boss lady is that you don’t care what others think of you. Their opinion does not affect you.
You do you.
And regardless of what the world is telling you, you remain true to yourself and live life on your own terms.
Most importantly, you don’t place your happiness in anyone else’s hands and are always looking for ways to improve yourself and do things better.
Now that you know how to be a boss lady, it is just a matter of getting into the right mindset to show up as one consistently.
Get ready to rock and roll. And don’t ever apologize for being your fabulous self!
