Growing up I was thankful to have some strong and fearless women as my role models. My grandmother, mother, and my older sisters instilled in me the belief that with hard work I could accomplish anything. They taught me that setbacks don’t make you a failure and that giving up is never an option. My grandmother was the epitome of a fearless woman and she and my mother inspired today’s article on how to be a fearless woman. My family and I had fun creating images for this article. I’m wearing a Yes She Can ($20) necklace from Lucky Feather, an online retailer specializing in unique jewelry pieces. Read until the end for a code to help you save some moola at Lucky Feather. More on that later, for now, let’s learn how to become a fearless woman.
Fearless Women Know How to Be Supportive
There’s an old saying that only an insecure person has trouble being supportive of others. Fearless women don’t waste their precious time being jealous or engaging in cat fights. Instead, they are passionate about being supportive of others. They celebrate, encourage, and inspire women to be a better version of themselves. They know the power of a listening ear and are always there to help when called upon.
Fearless Women Believe in Themselves
When I wrote, this heading I immediately thought of all the difficult things my mother has been through. I really sat in that moment and I realized what kept her from giving up on life. She really believed in herself and her ability to make a better life not only for her but for her children. Fearless women have zero doubt in their ability to care for themselves regardless of their circumstances. When met with a challenge, they do what they need to do to survive. They don’t curl up in a ball of defeat, no, they seek out help and learn the skills needed to get through life’s trials.
Fearless Women Demand Respect
My mother and grandmother were no-nonsense women. They received respect because of the respect and love they showed others. That is an attribute all strong and fearless women should strive to obtain. Respect others and they will respect you also.
Fearless Women Speak Up
When there is a time and a need to speak up, a fearless woman is always in wait for her opportunity. Speak up for yourself and accept nothing less. This will build your confidence. Never let anyone silence you.
Fearless Women Know What They Want
If you were to ask my mother one thing about me that aggravates her, she would probably say my indecisiveness. I can’t make a decision on anything. My mind is engulfed with the what if’s that I just freeze. That is the total opposite of my mother. She knows what she wants and pursues it without hurting others in the process. This is a trait all fearless women should develop. If you are like me and have trouble making decisions, make a list of all the things you are comfortable with accepting and also make a list of things you will not accept. Place the list where you can see it daily and remind yourself every morning before you leave the house what you will and will not take. This will help to build confidence so that you will be able to speak up for yourself and have a clearer idea of what you really want out of life.
It doesn’t take a lot to be a fearless woman. You must learn to speak up, know what you want, demand respect, believe in yourself, and be supportive of others. With these things in your arsenal, you will be well on your way to becoming a fearless woman.
