She’s not afraid to quit her job to take a six-month trip to India. She’s always the first one on the block to bring flowers to a sick neighbor. And she’d never think twice before rocking a new pixie cut. Here are seven secrets of fearless lady rock stars.
You graduated from college years ago, but that doesn’t mean it’s too late to take that French poetry class. Intelligence is cultivated, and your abilities aren’t fixed, unchangeable things. Keep being curious, and soak up all the knowledge you can.
…And actually kind of enjoy them. Rather than letting a wrong turn discourage you, let it energize and invigorate you. Hooray, you’ve learned from your error and are now on the right track. Hey, getting lost is half the fun, right?
Real talk: You’ll never ace a new job or hobby right away. So don’t wait until you’re fully prepared to get started. Just take the leap, be observant and rely on others to help you stay on track. And if you make a mistake, no biggie. (Mistakes are fun, remember?)
Risk-taking women don’t see negative feedback as a reflection of their self-worth. So the next time a coworker gives you a critical review, thank him or her for being honest with you, then shake, shake, shake it off.
Instead of worrying about what people might say when you tell them you’re quitting your job to open your own boutique, know it’s all a part of the journey. Brush off the naysayers and just keep crushing.
Whether it’s sampling Ethiopian food or taking a kickboxing class, women who take risks are incredibly open-minded. Don’t let fear stop you from taking advantage of new opportunities.
Being fearless doesn’t mean never being scared. It means acknowledging the fear, and then doing it anyway. So instead of avoiding a neighbor because she’s going through a rough time and you’re not sure what to say, hightail it to her house with flowers. It'll make her day. Promise.
