Successful women are everywhere, breaking the mold, making waves, and making things happen. As a continuation of last week's post, here are 5 more habits that the successful woman attributes to her success.
6. She is a boss—not bossy
Successful women know what it means to be a boss. They don't claim that they know it all and makes a habit to seek help from others. They show instead of tell. Give direction instead or ordering others around. Treats others with respect and pays it forward. She aims to inspire others through their hard work, dedication, and belief in herself.
7. She knows the meaning of, "her success is not my failure"
The all too popular quote of "her success is not my failure" is a true statement for successful women. Instead of focusing on what everyone else is doing around her, the successful woman makes a habit to stay in her lane and and understands that just because "she", whoever "she" may be, is successful at something doesn't mean she has failed. Successful women know and understand that if they don't hold true to this statement, the comparison trap isn't too far behind and comparison is the their of joy and confidence.
It doesn't matter what others are doing, it matters what YOU are doing.
8. She is financially savvy.
The successful woman knows what it means to be financially savvy. She makes it a habit to keep track and stay on top of her spending—what's going out and what's coming in. She stewards her money well, making the best decisions for her business based on what she can financially afford and knows where she can and cannot invest. She weighs her options searches out the best options for her business and life. It's tempting to want to go out and get the latests and greatest, but patience is a virtue and a successful woman makes a habit of waiting, saving, and preparing instead of getting, getting, getting.
9. She takes care of herself.
There is something to be said about a woman who to only cares for others but makes it a habit to also take care of herself. This will look different from woman to woman, but taking care of yourself can attribute to her success. Too often #girlbosses are day dreams and night thinkers and more often than not we stay up late working until our days turn into nights and nights into days. We all have 24 hours a day and 6-8 of those hours should be spent getting much needed rest. The successful woman knows and makes a habit of eating healthy, exercising, getting rest, drinking water, and more. She takes care of herself knowing that she cannot pour into others if she is empty herself.
10. She uses fear as fuel.
Fear. Such a dream-killing four letter word, when faced, can launch you into amazing things. The popular quote, "everything you want is on the other side of fear", stands true. The successful woman often sees fear as a catapult launching her into what she is meant or. Amazing things happen when we step out of our comfort zones and out of fear. The successful woman recognizes and understand where her fear comes from and instead makes a habit to punch fear in the face and take the big steps of faith in the direction of her destiny.
While these habits attribute to success, YOU have to define what success looks like for YOU. You may have similar habits, or perhaps you'll want to test out of few of these and see what works for you. Take these tips as more of guidelines and not the end all be of habits of successful women.
