We have all been there. We find the words, “It’s not you, it’s me,” trickling out of our mouths when what we really mean is, “No, it’s definitely you.” Much like the bad boy bikers of your past, sometimes you have to say goodbye to things in order to grow. Being a boss lady ain’t no different! Here is a list of things you need to break up with ASAP to be the best girlboss you can be.
Being the best person you can be means being honest with yourself and others. While saying you have 500,000 Insta-followers and so much daily site traffic that your host site can barely function, might sound nice. But it’s only holding you back if it isn’t true. Lying about where you are currently at on your business journey does not benefit you in anyway. Be proud of the progress you have made, keep working hard and set attainable goals for yourself going forward to continue your growth.
Say goodbye to your timid past self and be unapologetically self-assured about who you are in this present moment.
Why is it that women so often find themselves apologizing? We apologize for our success, we apologize for our shortcomings, we even apologize when a stranger spills their double pump, non-fat, no foam latte on us. For many women, apologizing is inexorably linked to our concept of politeness. This habitual act is one that you have to break if you want to be step up your girlboss game. It is time to say goodbye to your timid past self and be unapologetically self-assured about who you are in this present moment.
Saying Yes to Everything
Having a ton of opportunities knocking at your door means you are doing something right. Saying yes to all of them is wrong for your business. Chasing too many opportunities at once ensures that you cannot give the necessary attention to any of them. Instead, stay focused on what partnerships and projects are best suited to help you reach your goals and give them the proper attention they deserve.
Nothing is ever going to be “perfect” because there is no such thing as perfection. Aim for progress not perfection when it comes to your business. When you aim for perfection, you belittle all of your current achievements and stifle your creative process. When you aim for progress, you move yourself and your business forward allowing you to grow and develop into the best girlboss you can be.
