I’m all about being your own boss, or bad-ass, or killer-queen. Anything the means taking control of your life and letting the world know who’s in charge makes me happy. Plus, anything that encourages self-love and positivity also makes me very happy. There are some people out there who may think: “She’s not a BOSS.” But funny thing, I don’t care. Because I know I’m a boss, the only approval I need is my own. So here are some of the top tips I live by, as my own bad-ass BOSSSSS.
A true boss will never think inside the box, or dream small. It’s simply having that all-or-nothing mindset that fuels fiery determination. Ambition is everything when it comes to dominating life. From romance to your career, it’s always best to aim high if you want those awesome results.
As my own boss, I literally never spend money. Unless it’s treat yo self day and I’m splurging in the latest season’s sale at Trinity Leeds. It’s a very hard habit to get into, but saving is so key in every aspect of life. Watch that bank account grow!
Stressing out is not cool. We all do it, I do it 99.99% of the time, but it’s not a good habit to have. When the pressure gets too much, it’s important to remember that a boss will keep her cool, remember that she’s a BOSS and continue to be a BOSS!
BREAK THE RULES
Rules are totally meant to be broken. Why else would they be there? The glass ceiling, or that invisible barrier that’s holding you back demands to be broken. A boss would never allow a silly set of rules to stop her from achieving her goal, unless they’re for safety of course.
I definitely struggle to become independent from time to time, but as the successful boss I strive to be, I know that working life out on my own is a big part of growing up. Leaning on people for support is natural and always helpful, but if a boss wants to do something on her own, she’ll do it on her own!
The ideas never stop coming. A dry spell happens every so often, but it’s never the end of the world. The bright ideas notepad is never too far away and full of creative concepts, whether they will be the winner or not. Drafts are the stepping stones to success.
A solid routine is the way forward. It’s how the day gets started and how it ends. Plus it keeps the day going and everything in order – just the way a boss likes it. There’s something about knowing what’s coming that brings peace to the mind.
Pretty much needed at any given time, but especially for a boss. To create a successful routine, you have to be organised in the first place. Developing this skill takes time and training but it’s always worth it.
WORK HARD, PLAY HARDER
As much fun as success may be, having fun is way better. There’s something about hard work that makes the pay-off ten thousand times better. The greatest part? Loving what you do and doing what you love. As the weekend rolls around, have fun!
Bad-ass bosses are smart. They’re smart in whatever field they want to feel smart in. It could be any topic or activity under the sun, but education is incredibly important. Not only is it an enormous luxury to be able to learn, but also beneficial for future boss adventures.
It’s all fun and games until something goes wrong and you lose the will to continue. That’s a big no-no for a boss. Nothing throws them off, no one puts them off. If a boss wants to achieve she WILL achieve. Say this out-loud every so often, and keep your eyes on the prize.
A boss certainly isn’t bothered about the opinions of others. Success looks different to everybody. You don’t necessarily need to compete with or copy people to do well. Just be confident in you. Love yourself. And you’ll become the next big BOSS!
