How to become a Boss Woman
by Clarissa Venturi
Growing up is not easy. Especially if you are a little girl in a men’s world.
With body-shaming, sub-tweeting on social media and letting guys come between friendships, the list of obstacles on a girl’s path is endless.
Immaturity is not a good look on anyone, and can set you back not only in your career, but in your life.
Being a classy, empowered woman is about more than just your age: It is how you carry and present yourself to the outside world.
As you prepare to step out into the concrete jungle that is adulthood, be sure you are representing yourself as a boss:
1. KNOW WHAT YOU WANT, AND HOW TO ASK FOR IT.
Whether it's in friendship, a relationship or your career, it's important to set personal boundaries. Always define what you want and what you will not allow.
Never be afraid to speak up and to say your opinion. Anything lost by voicing your opinion was never worth having to begin with.
Keep your head up girl!
2. HAVE AMBITION, AND set goals.
Each one of us has different ambitions and dreams.
Some desire to get married, have kids, raise a family. Others want to become the CEO of a fashion brand or the boss of an famous company.
Just keep in mind what you want to be in your life and fight for it. Like a girl !
3. RESPECT YOURSELF AND YOUR BODY.
Respect yourself to know when it’s time to leave a situation that became uncomfortable.
A woman knows she is sexy, if she has fully respect of her body and her mind. Don’t let anyone walk over you!
4. BE CONFIDENT IN YOURSELF AND YOUR ABILITIES.
Don’t rely on Instagram number of likes to define your self-worth.
You are amazing just the way you are. What’s important, is to flourish yourself everyday. Love yourself and be confident. Tell yourself that you can, and you will!
5. FOCUS ON THE FUTURE, NOT THE PAST.
Failed relationships, bad jobs and missed opportunities are all things that no longer serve you. So let them go.
Don’t get stuck in the past, it’s gone forever. Use the past to learn from it. Learn the lesson, move on. Focus on the future, that’s what you gonna live in from now on!
6. SUPPORT AND EMPOWER OTHER FEMALES.
Amazing things can happen when women support other women.
Imagine yourself in the midst of your best girlfriends, laughing, sharing your ideas and enjoying life.
Now, imagine that on a bigger scale. If all women were this kind to each other, we could change the world.
Let's start a movement and make the world a better place for all women.
Being an empowered woman is simply about keeping your head and morals high, and showing basic respect toward all people.
Also, don't forget to be yourself. There is only one of you in all the world, and you're f*cking fabulous.
