10 Secrets of Highly Successful Women

10 Secrets of Highly Successful Women

In our own lives, it’s easy for success to feel elusive, we can get bogged down comparing ourselves to others, or whining about what we lack. These ‘secrets’ will help to open your eyes to your true beauty and rev up your engines.

Women inspire me, it’s as simple as that.

1) Plan and Prepare – ‘Failing to plan is planning to fail’. A successful woman is a busy woman, and the only way to keep all aspects of your life running smoothly is to get organized. This means utilizing your outlook calendar, making to-do lists, and keeping your space (work and otherwise) clutter-free.

2) Work Smart and find your focus– Work itself is a reward. If we choose work that challenges us yet inspires us it will pay us back with interest. Remember that success is a journey, not a destination, so enjoy the ride!

3) Take Massive Action and Never Give Up – Believe in yourself and you will overcome challenges and fears. Take little steps in order to make huge strides. Several studies which have found this to be true suggest “Male risk-taking tends to increase under stress, while female risk taking tends to decrease under stress,” Just remember to take action because things won’t change unless you do something about it.

4) Invest in your appearance – Create your style – the essence of your style is all you. Some readers might take offense to the idea that a woman must look good to get ahead in life. But just think about it, when you look good you feel good. Show your sass by owning yourself – be the happy healthy curvy strong woman if you want to be. Vamp it up – you are as old as you feel. P.S looking after yourself goes hand in hand with looking good 😉

5) Demand respect and know when to say no – A true bad ass babe knows her worth and isn’t wasting time with anyone who doesn’t recognize it. Stand up for yourself and stop taking crap from people. If you can, do it politely because you don’t have to stoop to their level.

6) Arrive on time – Time management and respecting the time of others is essential. Not only will people not take you seriously when you’re late, it’s just downright rude. Make a point of being 15 minutes early everywhere you go. It is also calming and helps with focus and being present.

7) Gather your tribe – Build strong connections with your friends, mentors and motivators nurture and feed these relationships because they will strengthen your bond and be there for you when times get tough.

8) Eat right – It’s hard to be successful when you don’t feel good. And it’s hard to feel good if you’re consuming too much sugar, intoxicants, refined carbs or processed foods. All of this stuff causes inflammation which can result in fatigue, pain, mental fog and depression. The most successful women avoid these symptoms by drinking plenty of water, eating vegetables, salads, fruit and lean meats as well as limiting their intake of carbs.

9) Find pleasure in spontaneity- Try laughing out loud, eating outdoors, walking in the rain or working somewhere new in the house – it’s in the daily simple pleasures where true happiness and peace are found.

10) Don’t settle and know when to move on – Whether it is in work or in love, she knows what she deserves and isn’t settling for anything less. Powerful women know when to cut their losses. If your job or your boyfriend aren’t giving you what you need, it’s time to move on. YOU deserve the best!
