When you close your eyes and envision the woman you aspire to be, who do you see? What is that woman’s purpose? Becoming that woman is not an easy feat, but it’s entirely possible. It requires courage, perseverance, and a steadfast commitment to yourself. So, how exactly does a woman go about stepping into the person she dreams of being? Here are five tips to get you started.
1. Get your mind in the right place
The first step to discovering your purpose and becoming the woman you’ve always wanted to be entails tossing out the belief that certain things are impossible. Thinking that you can’t do certain things for one reason or another means you’ve given up before you’ve even begun. Instead of writing off goals and dreams because you think they’re unattainable, try to come up with ways that you could make them happen.
2. Set goals
The next step on this journey is to set goals. Write out your goals or tell them to someone you trust. It can also help to set mini goals, each with a goal date. If you’re not sure what your goals are, that’s okay, too! Have brainstorming sessions where you write out what you love, what your strengths are, and what the world needs. This can help you gain clarity about what direction you want to go. Don’t pressure yourself to figure it out though! As you go through life, your purpose often naturally makes itself clear to you.
3. Address insecurities
Many times, women don’t become the woman they aspire to be because their insecurities hold them back. They might think they’re not smart enough, pretty enough, funny enough, or any number of other things. Working through your insecurities can be challenging, but just may be some of the most important work you’ll do. It will allow you to pursue your passions and dreams with confidence and determination and will prevent you from self-sabotaging yourself along the way. The woman you wish to be is already within you—she’s simply waiting for you to have the courage to reveal her to the world.
4. Be willing to work hard While setting goals and getting your mind in the right place is crucial, those things don’t mean anything without putting in work. Becoming the woman you see when you close your eyes may be very challenging. There may be setbacks along the way and that’s okay. Don’t lose sight of your vision and keep moving forward.
5. Find support
Contrary to what you might think, you don’t have to walk this journey alone. While you are ultimately in charge of your mindset and actions, having a coach or therapist to support you along your journey can be incredibly helpful. Having someone to bounce ideas off of, offer you alternative points of view, or help you overcome mental hurdles is invaluable.
