There’s a revolution brewing within society. A pending girl boss is on the rise. She’s the kind of woman that knows exactly what she wants and when she wants it and is not ready for any male to shadow or lower her chances of success. Risks were made for her to seize and thrive. Does this sound familiar? Read the 5 signs to confirm how you are evolving into a girl boss and you did not even know it!
1. Cultivates the life she dreams of
When it came to being told and advised what to do with your life, you have never submitted and always had the first say! It has never been about making reckless decisions, nor basing your needs and happiness on something short term and temporary. You strategically plan every step, knowing from your youth that your aspirations could be reality with discipline, organisation and consistent hard work. Hurdles where the hardships you needed to realise the rarity and value of your dreams-were you relish and appreciate every step of the journey along the way. No has never been an answer to you, for in your mind there are 26 letters of the alphabet and plan B is the next option!
2. Self sufficient and comfortable
Your financial situation is always at hand. You never need aid from others that surround you because depending on yourself is how you have been raised, or through particular life lessons that have taught you, not to depend on anyone but yourself. All rent and bills are paid, even with some side hustle remaining to save for the future. You aim large and longterm. Sure, Gucci and Prada seem nice, but travel, culture and soul are what make your world really go round. Therefore being wise with your money is what has allowed you to be comfortable to this very day and seek the world out beyond the fine dining cuisine restaurant down the road.
3. Does not seek validation
When it comes to conforming within society and cultural expectations, you have never submitted to any of them. Yes, you take advise; wisdom becomes you for learning from others mistakes, yet you will never exist or answer to anything that does not abide to the moral and soul principles that you have fortified for yourself. – unapologetically so. Submission and belonging are not within your forte. A natural leader that makes decisions for yourself and honours them by holding the utmost responsibility and consequences for every situation. Maya Angelou’s literary words are a beacon to your inner peace and self belonging ‘You are only free when you realise you belong no place-you belong every place-no place at all.’ The courage to face anywhere and everywhere alone with no intimidation, because you know who you are- you are capable and YOU CAN do this.
4. Decision maker and confidant within the friendship group
Although you have always surrounded yourself with ladies who empower you-which you return nonetheless, the natural leader within you, makes you the Alpha and most trusted entity within all your friends. The raw honesty and ‘practice what you preach’ characteristics are the reasons why all your friends seek out your advice and confide all their deepest secrets to you. The fact you are so honest and raw with yourself and everyone else inspires momentum within your girl gang. They appreciate you and will always trust everything you have to say.
5. Self Love, Stretch marks and all
How can a girl boss advocate self value without appreciating the lengths her body has gone through to get her to the very panicle moment she is in now? Every time you look to your reflection, you see a figure of strength and the essence of your femininity. All these so called ‘imperfections’ signify a journey, a memory, a battle that you have conquered! You know there are some changes that can be adapted through some lifestyle alterations (which you have identified and are on it!), yet there is so much more to you then skin and bone. YOUR SOUL. A timeless gift that you should always value.
