How often do we motivate and inspire others to keep going, to believe in themselves, to push through the challenges, and tell them ‘you got this’, yet rarely do the same for ourselves?
My hands go up for this one!
We are forever looking at others, admiring their life, wishing for what they have, and telling ourselves they we can never have that lifestyle, job, physique or relationship, because we don’t have the same luck, genes, education, and the list goes on.
STOP! JUST STOP!
What makes the person in that £1000 suit better than you?
What about that girl with the perfect hair, no effort make-up, amazing body, and god-like boyfriend?
How about the man who parked up in the latest Audi A5 in front of Planet Organic?
And what about the fitness couple that are posting pictures of their workouts, perfect arrangement of meals for the week, and envious travel pics on Instagram?
I can tell you this….Absofreakinlutely nothing! (what a word huh?)
Now I’m not talking about EGO here. Feeding your ego to make yourself THINK you’re good. No. I’m talking about the REAL you, your true self, the gem that you are, underneath all that skin, bone and tissue, the one that is pure soul and love.
You have the power to change the life you were born in to. You were given life by your parents to live out your craziest and wildest dreams, yet some of us have forgotten something very key that makes all of this possible…
BELIEF! Nobody has ever succeeded without it.
It’s going to take time to build, and like all those who you admire and help motivate, you are going to start doing for yourself.
You were born with a badass attitude. It was there before society and those around you, broke you down, and made you believe you weren’t good enough. But now it’s time to get your little soft butt up (because I’ve never known a badass to have one), and start building your confidence and dreams.
Learn to love yourself, and those things you seek, you will become. So here goes…
Guide to A Badass Self (in no particular order)
Change to a positive mindset- this is where it all begins (thoughts & self-talk)
Congratulate yourself on getting thus far, and for all your achievements.
Stay true to you- there isn’t anyone like you, and that is your biggest asset
Write down some goals- visualize them, write them, work at them
Work on yourself- nutrition, exercise, emotions, meditate, self-development courses
Write down all the things you like about yourself and what you are good at
Lose some friends- let go of those negative leeches and make way for some new badasses
Focus on you- forget what she/he is doing over there. Over there is not where you’re going
Learn to laugh- mostly at yourself and at life’s crappy moments
Vent & Vex- get your frustrations out, heal & move on. Holding on is what’s holding you back
Stay classy- too many butts and not enough brains being displayed
Do what makes you happy- because a smile is the sexiest thing you will ever wear
Remember change takes time. Be patient and keep focusing on the person you want to be. Being a badass means you have your own back at all times, no sticks, stones or words will ever hurt you.
Become so infectious that your name alone changes the vibration of the world
Now that, is how to see the best in you!
YOU DESERVE IT! YOU ARE MAGICAL! YOU CAN HAVE IT ALL! JUST BELIEVE IN YOU
