Being a powerful, vigorous woman who proudly stands her ground is a courage worth admiring. In the 21st century, in a world where we as women have to fight for our basic human rights and deal with the objectification of the female gender, ‘having the balls’ to remain strong and determined is a challenge.
That is why we praise them. We praise those independent and fearless women who once dared to make history. The ones who still dare to make some changes. The ladies who know exactly what they want from life. The GIRLBOSSESS.
The ones who go against every odd and every storm and still succeed. The ones who know their worth and don’t need any validation or approval. They carry the sunshine within and get our hopes back. And they do it in their own, unique way.
Here are 12 things all confident and strong women do differently. We salute you!
1. THEY ARE WELL AWARE THAT SELF-CARE IS ESSENTIAL
One of the most important things we should do in life is to unconditionally care for ourselves. We all need to practice self-acceptance and self-love in order to reach happiness.
Successful and strong ladies learned that the person they should take care of first is the one they see in the mirror. Start doing that.
2. THEY AREN’T AFRAID TO STAND ALONE
A strong, girl boss, doesn’t need another person to get things done. She sets her goals and finds a way to achieve them. And if there isn’t one, she’ll do whatever it takes to create it.
Simple as that. Her will is so strong and her mind so determined, nothing will ever stop her from achieving greatness.
3. THEY NEVER MAKE EXCUSES
Wherever life takes them, powerful and confident women never use their hardship as an excuse for something. A real, independent lady knows that she’s more than capable of achieving anything she wants. And excuses will only get in her way of doing that.
4. THEY CERTAINLY DON’T WASTE THEIR LIVES COMPLAINING
And if there’s another thing besides excuses that get in the way of actually succeeding at something, that would definitely be unnecessary complaining.
Complaining drains your energy and gets you nowhere. That is why these powerful and strong-willed women learned to let go and move forward. They will always work with what they got and choose to make the best of it.
5. THEY CONSTANTLY CHALLENGE THEMSELVES
The comfort zone might be relaxing, but nothing ever grows there. When you’re too comfortable, you become stagnant and depressed. So, in order to avoid these negative vibrations, successful and confident women never stopped working on themselves.
Whether it’s a new book, a new hiking challenge, or learning of a new language, these girl bosses know how to keep their minds occupied and stimulated at all times.
6. THEY ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR OWN FINANCES
A strong-willed, determined and hardworking lady makes her own fortune. She would rather starve and start over from scratch then have someone sponsor her.
She will never expect for some person to show up and finance her needs. She tirelessly worked to earn her gold, so she’s the only one responsible for it.
7. THEY ARE THE MOST OPEN-MINDED AND LOVING HUMAN BEINGS
And while independent women are usually known for having a fiery attitude and a strong moral code, they are also the most open-minded and loving individuals who enjoy learning new ideas and methods for dealing with issues.
8. THEY ASPIRE TO BECOME THE BEST VERSION OF THEMSELVES
Most importantly, these women know that there is so much more to life than an average 08-16h job and paying bills. That’s the same reason they’ve decided they won’t go chasing paychecks, but instead, they’d follow their only, true passion in life.
And no matter what it is, if it makes her heart smile and her eyes sparkle, she’ll do it.
9. THEY ARE GENEROUS AND LIKE TO HELP EVERYONE AROUND THEM
To reach a certain, high peak in life and still remain humble and modest, is something we’re not used to seeing these days. Yet, it is among the most important virtues a person can possess.
Powerful women know that happiness can only get bigger when shared, that is why they enjoy helping others. They will never tolerate an egotistical behavior because everyone deserves a slice of the pie.
10. THEY TAKE BOLD RISKS
A girl boss knows that if she intends to go places, she would need to play on the rough side once in a while and take some high risks. Greatness cannot be reached by enjoying the comfort zone.
And after all, what is life if not a never-ending cycle of risks and unpredictability?
11. THEY ARE VERY CONSIDERATE OF THE TIME PHENOMENON
Time is clearly money. A responsible and strong woman will never allow wasting her life on trivialities. Instead, she’ll find the perfect balance through managing her time. Work hard, party later!
12. THEY DON’T GIVE A DAMN ABOUT WHAT OTHERS THINK
And one of the things that make these individuals so damn special, is their nonchalant and serene reaction to everything around them. You could never get to them with disrespectful and mean comments because powerful women know their worth.
They stick to their moral values and general beliefs in life. What others say, do or think is not their concern.
