Being a Girl Boss is easier now more than ever. And I assume you found your way to my blog because you are somewhere along your Girl Boss journey. Well guess what? I am too so I decided to share all of the tips with you! Before we get into the real Girl Boss tea, be sure to follow me on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. I share tips every single day on how to be a successful woman.
I’ve spent the past 2 years studying successful women (and men) and I learned that there’s levels to this. Being a Girl Boss requires determination, discipline, and a good mindset. But don’t you worry because I’m breaking it all down for you.
The Girl Boss Mindset- It starts in your mind
The first thing that you need to do if you want to be a Girl Boss is understand that you need to make a change and start working on your mindset.
I was in a really dark place in life when I decided that I needed to make a change in my life. I realized that I wouldn’t be able to make a change in my life if I didn’t change my mindset.
Girl Bosses have a different way of thinking than most and that is what really sets them apart. Ever since I started implementing the Girl Boss mindset, I started seeing some MAJOR results in my life. 😀
Start associating with like-minded people.
The company you keep will form the person that you are over a period of time. If you want to better yourself and continue to level up in life, you need to drop the people in your life that aren’t sharing the same desires as you. Don’t get me wrong, you don’t have to completely ditch all of your friends, but you should really focus on finding other like-minded people. If you aren’t the type of gal who likes to go out and meet new people, join Facebook groups with people who share your same goals! Follow those kinds of people on social media, try to surround yourself with people who are doing what you want to be doing in life.
Study other Girl Bosses or anyone who is where you want to be in life.
In my current stage of life, I am primarily focused on building wealth so that my husband can retire early and we can travel the world together or even just hang out on the beaches in Florida all the time together. Because of this, I am taking time every single day to read books, blogs, watch videos, listen to podcasts, all related to wealth building and personal finance. Not only do I want to build wealth for us, but I also want to build generational wealth so that my girls will get a little something when we pass on.
I’m reading a lot about Warren Buffet, Bill Gates, Oprah, even bloggers and influencers who have already created a life of financial freedom and people who have retired early. I love learning from them because I otherwise would have no knowledge of these wealth building strategies. I can take the information that I am learning, do additional research, and find out if it is a good option for my life. I spend hours per day doing this and I have already learned SO much! Things that I never would learn by binge watching NETFLIX all day long or listening to gossip shows on YouTube. My tip to you is to find 3 people who are where you want to be in life and read all you can about how they got there and how they are continuing to grow and improve their lives. I guarantee you will learn SO much!
Don’t get drunk
Don’t drink too much. Being drunk isn’t cute. It’s sloppy, smelly, and often leaves you feeling hungover. It can decrease your ability to properly manage your time and lower your productivity.
If you really want to boss up, leave excessive amounts of alcohol out of your plans. Drinking a little bit is okay, long as you can still manage to keep everything together.
Compete against yourself, no one else.
I think it’s easy to judge people given the fact that everyone shares the best and worst moments of their lives on social media. It doesn’t matter what anyone else is doing in their life. The only thing that matters is you.
Set your standards high and keep them high
Standards for everything. How you are treated at work, how much money you will be paid, how you are treated by your significant other. Make sure you are prioritizing your needs above everyone else’s. Don’t ever settle for than less than what you deserve in any aspect of your life.
Mind your own business
I haven’t had a job where I worked around other people in a long time. I was a nanny for years but before then I worked in retail with a bunch of nosy people. Some of them were extremely rude, and just all-around bad people. If you work with bad apples like these, my best advice to you is to just mind your own business.
Never tell people too much about your personal life, your struggles, or anything like that. Miserable people love to hear when other people aren’t doing well and they thrive on that kind of information. They spread the gossip or use it against you and it just isn’t okay.
Make small talk with your coworkers, but never spill too much tea about your personal life, and don’t get involved in gossip or poor treatment of other co workers either. You are better than that. Use that energy to better yourself.
Use these tips to completely dominate in life and become a total BOSS.
