Working hard and achieving can result in an enormous amount of pressure on oneself. Even if you’re getting positive feedback, there are certain things you just need to hear from time to time to keep yourself on track. So, here are my reminders to every #BossBabe out there that needs to hear it.
You can ask for help.
Never be afraid to ask others for help. Whether it’s at work, school or on your personal projects, we all need a helping hand every once in a while. It doesn’t make you any less talented, smart, or successful to need to reach out for help.
You can make mistakes.
Everybody makes mistakes –– that is how you learn. I cannot tell you how many unsuccessful desserts I’ve baked, how many terrible magazine layouts I’ve designed, and how many mistakes I’ve learned from. You can recover, learn, and move forward from any issue you may face.
You can extend your personal deadlines.
We are all guilty of stressing over deadlines we’ve created for ourselves. It doesn’t matter if something isn’t going as planned. If you’ve set a deadline for yourself, it means that the only person counting on you is you.
You don’t always need to be on point.
Some days you just need to skip your makeup routine. Some days you need to rock the cozier pants. Some days you forget to brush your hair. You don’t always need to be on point because you are human, and you’re doing just fine. At the end of the day, you’re still conquering the world.
