Sophia Amoruso, the founder of NastyGal and the #GirlBoss movement, is a modern inspiration to any renaissance woman in 2017 and has loads of ways to be the GirlBoss of your own life! Not only was she the first person to own a successful eBay store, her debut book, #GirlBoss, was a smash hit bestseller and source of motivation for girls who were looking to make a big impact on the world in countries all over the globe. The book offers lots of different insights and pieces of advice on how to find empowerment and live your best boss-like life. Here are three ways to be the GirlBoss of your own life.
1. React Positively to Failure
One of the best ways to be the GirlBoss of your own life is to stay positive. Being successful isn’t about never, ever failing. It’s about learning how deal with that failure and what moves you can make to ensure that that the same failure never happens again. Failure is an inevitable part of life for anybody striving to be a success, so don’t get defeated when you hit an obstacle. Use it as a learning experience that will help you to avoid the same problems from arising again in the future. Remember this key phrase because there are secret, positive opportunities hidden within every failure. Don’t crumble when something doesn’t pan out!
2. Life is Too Short to Be Lazy or Give up
In the grand scheme of things, life is way too short to decide not to do something, either because you are scared or because you can’t be bothered to put the work in. Before you even know it, the opportunity will have passed and depending on how big it was, you might just live to regret it for the rest of your life. Do you really want to be another one of those people who look back with bitterness at their lost opportunities? The only way to ensure that this doesn’t happen is to take every opportunity that comes with both hands and try, try, try! If it doesn’t work out, as least you won’t be left with that nagging feeling of having never tried. Don’t live a life of what ifs!
3. Invest in Yourself
If you have big dreams and big motivations and you truly believe in yourself, then it's time to put your money where your mouth is! Don’t be afraid to invest in yourself for a particular project if you really think that it is going to improve your life or your prospects. If you believe in yourself and are passionate and dedicated, then everybody else will too!
