I’ve been re-evaluating every aspect of my life lately, particularly the people I surround myself with. I think the older you get and more focused you become on reaching your goals, the more you should require from your inner circle. After all, as the saying goes, “you are the average of the top 5 people with whom you surround yourself.” So it doesn’t take rocket science to figure out if you want to be a boss bish, you need to surround yourself with other boss bishes!
But what is a boss bish exactly? Well, glad you asked! A boss bish is someone who takes control of their life and gets ish done. Period. They don’t wait for handouts; they don’t complain. Instead, a boss bish puts on some lipstick and trap music, and handles her business.
I meannnn, can I get an Amen tho?!
Think you may be a boss bish? Here are a few signs!
1 – You get ish done.
Period! While many spend countless hours talking about what they’re going to do, you just get it done. You’re not too fond of excuses, and would rather find reasons why you can complete a task instead of focusing on why you can’t. And if you ever find yourself in the company of friends who focus on the latter, then you gotta get out of their presence. After all, you can’t afford to pick up those bad habits because you’ve got too much sh*t to do.
2 – Your ambitions and goals keep you up at night.
While everyone is sleeping cozily in their beds, you’re tossing and turning with thoughts of accomplishing your goals. You just can’t turn it off! You’re constantly thinking of your next step, which is always your best step.
3 – You want to build your own dreams.
You find it very difficult to build someone else’s dreams. And as a result, you’ve never been, and will never be, content working for someone else when you could be putting forth the time and effort into building your own empire!
4 – Your creativity cannot be stifled.
You can’t be boxed in and your creativity cannot be contained. Nope. You won’t allow it, and quite frankly, you shouldn’t! You’re blossoming with brilliant ideas, and you won’t let anyone tell you differently.
5 – You empower other women.
You don’t spend time tearing other women down – instead, you help them! By giving advice and sharing information, you support others while encouraging them to be their very best. You do this because you understand there’s enough greatness to go around, and you genuinely want everyone to be successful!
6 – You don’t wait for opportunities, you go get them.
You don’t sit around and complain. If you’re not happy with something, you change it. You don’t wait for opportunities to magically fall in your lap – you figure out how to make them happen. Plain and simple!
7 – You’re too goal-driven to participate in pettiness.
Yea, yea, I know it’s cute and “trendy” and all, but you just don’t have time for the pettiness. When you ‘re working on something greater in life, you understand that putting your time and energy into reaching your goals is way more beneficial to you than participating in anybody’s foolishness. And plus you’re a grown woman so, there’s that. #aintnobodygottimeforthat
8 – You take control over your life.
You understand that life is 10% of what happens to you, and 90% of how you react to it – meaning, you have the power to change your life! It’s just not in your nature to sit around and blame others for your failures. As a girl boss, you know how to take full accountability and action.
9 – You don’t let people waste your time. Ever.
You understand that time is money, so you don’t have time to play with people! That’s in relationships, friendships, at work, etc. Therefore, you use your time wisely and strategically, as anything else is, well, just a waste of time.
If you can identify with some or most of these signs, then you too are a boss bish and we should totally do brunch.
#bossbisheswhobrunch – I like the sound of that.
