The “dream” of becoming a girl boss is now more attainable than ever before.
Having started this blog, let me tell you… I dreamed the dream, I ran straight towards the life that I wanted, I quit my full-time job and I became the girl boss that I knew that I could be.
Along the way, I’ve discovered a thing or two about entrepreneurship, blogging professionally, and being your own boss that I couldn’t resist telling you these 5 golden rules that I’ve recently learned in order to reach your goals.
So, if you are just beginning your journey to being self-employed, breaking out into the unknown with something new, OR have been at it for a while now and need some helpful advice…
Here are five great rules that ALL girl bosses do consistently (on a daily basis), alongside while carving out their own unique paths for success.
These habits will leave you feeling more put together with a sure feeling that you are able to accomplish absolutely anything in your business and your life!
1. They wake up early and stick to a morning routine.
First and foremost, every girl needs a very special and productive morning routine.
That way she’ll be able to conquer her goals and get what she needs to get done — done!
Plus, all girl-bosses know that waking up early is their meal ticket to success and that’s why waking up early paired with a powerful morning routine takes the cake.
So you should not stray away from having one as well.
If you are trying to achieve a goal or have a dream that you’re pursuing (that is really important to you), then know that if you MAKE time in the mornings, then you are going to get whatever you are pursuing done and a lot faster.
You’ll be way more efficient throughout the day and you’ll be rewarded just by creating more time for yourself in the mornings.
Plus, when you rise early, it eliminates the need to rush in the morning, making your day just that much more relaxed and streamlines which is what most girl bosses seem to do with ease.
2. They remove words like “I should” or “I will”.
Productive successful girl bosses know how truly important it is to be aware of what comes out of their mouths.
That’s because what we say becomes our literal truth.
You can learn more about this in the Science behind out vibes here but when we use the words like, “I should,” or “I could” we’re not accepting reality.
Plain and simple, what we’re doing is we are actually recanting defeat!
This is a surefire way to not meet your goals or stay on the right path. And it’s only going to defer you away from your dreams and goals fast if you are speaking self-defeating things to yourself out loud.
So, consider removing “I should” and “I could” or “I want to” from your vocabulary right now!
Removing sentences like these will not only get you thinking in a better frame of mind (like a true girl boss) but it will also prompt you to rethink how you are presently conducting your life so that you can remarkably improve it.
In fact, if you would like to reach your desired goals in the long-term, know that whenever you tell yourself (or other people) that you should be doing something (as well-meaning as that might sound), you’re still reinforcing the negative.
Get yourself out of saying self-defeating thoughts once and for all and you’ll be well on your way to slaying your goals like a literal boss in no time at all!
3. They always surround themselves with like-minded people.
The old saying goes… “As a monkey sees so as a monkey does!”.
It is crucially true if you’re still surrounding yourself with people that are unmotivated in life or not actively trying to achieve their goals.
So if you’re still surrounded by people that are lazy and that lack motivation, or lack ambition or goals and they just live for the weekends (as they don’t really care about the week at all), then you’re going to take on that energy that they are emitting and you’re going to take on all those bad habits as well.
The end result will be that you’re not going to care about anything else as well — just like them!
Girl bosses know that they need to hang out with others that hold that same positive and vibrant, colorful outlook as themselves so that they can absorb all that good energy when they are hanging out with one another.
Plus positive people are just fun to be around. Positive, goal-oriented people will naturally bring out that inner girl boss that you know you can become.
4. Their self-esteem is boosted by their healthy habits.
Confidence really is key to living a fully abundant life!
Our level of confidence at any given moment dictates how we feel about ourselves and how sure we are going to proceed with our own abilities just to succeed in life.
This goes for everything at any given moment and any given activity. Having a healthy self-esteem really does come from within and it’s only from our healthy habits that it’s really truly able to shine forth.
So, to boost your self-esteem you should consider working out and eating healthy.
Working out gives the body hormones that actually will make you feel happier, feel better, and feel more positive. And eating healthy is directly correlated with how happy we are, and how “good” we’re performing at whatever it is that we’re doing, because of the energy it gives us.
The only way to do that is to include health in your life.
5. They are Practical and have a very well-grounded sense of reality.
Lastly, if a practical girl boss has anything, it is a very well-grounded sense of reality and they know exactly what they want and how they are going to achieve it.
Being practical refers to being capable of putting a plan into motion, making good decisions about that plan, and then following through with it by taking action.
So if you are practical with everything you approach in life whether it comes to your finances, your love life, your relationships, and your career… It will tremendously help you make more logical decisions and also defeat indecisiveness.
Also, being practical with your money habits, what relationships you keep, what career path you go towards all depends on having a good logical sense about the outcome.
And this is the golden rule that pretty much all girl bosses follow.
How can you be more practical in life?
Try to assess the risk-reward ratio in most situations.
Think about the areas in your life that are causing you the most stress and try to see how you can take a practical approach to change them for the better.
For example, if you have an idea that is plausible like changing careers? Then make a decision based on the OUTCOME that you would like (like having a new job) and NOT on the instant gratification that you will get (like leaving old coworkers behind that bothered you).
Assess the risk-reward ratio, be mindful of your decision making, and try to be more self-aware of the situations in your life that you are seeking change for.
Doing this will really make life feel a lot smoother, rather than if you were to make rash decisions that are based on fear.
Remember you can be that girl boss you’ve always wanted to be!
You just have to learn how to be more productive, create a vision for your goals, stick to a killer morning routine, and be more practical.
If you wake up to conquer your goals each day and have a practical approach to how you are handling things, you can accomplish almost anything!
