It’s funny how from one social media post, a whole door of opportunities opens. The question is, am I going to walk through any of those doors or stand in the doorway?

Are you a boss? I hope you answered yes.

Below I share some tips on how to be a boss, A BOSS OF YOUR LIFE!

1. Love yourself

What does loving yourself mean to you?
To me, it means wanting and creating the best life for me and my loved ones in perfect balance with minimal struggle. It means being aware of my thoughts as these thoughts becomes my reality. Trying to stay healthy by going to gym even though I really don’t like it. It means challenging myself by speaking in front of a crowd of people even though I hate public speaking. Cutting out all the toxic and negative influences in my life as that is a detriment to my life path. I strive to be the person I am meant to be. I am creating the life I know I deserve, living my dream life. Everyone deserves to have a healthy life and it comes down to loving yourself first.

2. Set Goals and believe in yourself

No, this is not a cliche statement, this is the truth!
Don’t just set goals for yourself, but set measurable timelines on when you would like to reach them. I work great with deadlines so I can’t have it any other way. You have to believe in yourself, you have to keep going because you deserve everything you desire. BElieve in YOUrself and the ability to succeed.

3. Dress for success

Don’t underestimate the power of looking and feeling good. You automatically feel and exude confidence when dressed for success. The way you dress affects the way you think, feel and act, but more so how others react to you.

4. What are you feeding yourself?

No beautiful humans, I am not just talking about food. Yes, it’s important that you are aware of what you are putting into your body. Exercise, sufficient sleep and a healthy diet is key to a balanced lifestyle. Most of us know what a healthy diet looks like, but I am not talking about what you consume physically. What do you consume mentally? Check your surroundings and make changes if need be. Your environment affects your productivity and overall outlook in life. Stop feeding yourself fearful thoughts, they not going to get you anywhere. Thoughts become things so ensure what you are thinking is beneficial to you.

5. Don’t let anyone manipulate you

This is such a hard one but possibly the most important one. How do you not let anyone manipulate you? It has taken me awhile to get to a comfortable point in my life where I can full heartedly stand my ground and it took work!. The first step for not letting anyone manipulate you is to start getting to know yourself. Start by asking yourself the following questions: Why do I feel the way I do? Why do I react the way I do to certain people and situations? Once you get to the root of those issues, you start to face your inner wounds and start the process of healing. Once you begin this process of awareness and self discovery you start to see life in a different way, and you will see through the bullshit.

It’s hard to control a victim than to control an evolved person.

6. Let go of negative belief

Are you happy? Can you do more? What do you want?

Why don’t you go and do it? What is stopping you?

GET RID OF THOSE NEGATIVE BELIEFS, yes I’m saying it louder.

Self-limiting beliefs can be one of the biggest barriers to you achieving your goals. Stop thinking you are not good enough, you are not black enough, you are not white enough, you are not coloured enough. STOP.

Stop thinking that you have to get a degree, get married, buy a house and have a kid because society says it’s the way.

Stop straightening your hair because you were made to believe it’s more desirable.

Just stop.

You are a powerful human being and have the ability to live your life extraordinary, all you got to do is focus positive energy into your desires and put in the work.

7. Don’t just think about it

If you always going to think about what your desired life looks like. It’s always going to be a dream. If you visualise the life you want there is a good chance it may happen, but if you start scheduling it, it becomes real!

I encourage you to be the boss of your life. Remember, we are not lucky, we are talented, smart, hardworking, soulful and beautiful. Take the opportunities that come your way because you don’t know what amazing magic lies beyond that. And if you feel you not where you want to be in life, you are one step closer than yesterday.

Until next time, keep on shining bright BOSS.
