Ah, the badass woman.

Girls want to grow up to be like her and men are too intimated to approach her.

She knows what she wants and she isn’t afraid to go and get it.

If you want to be a badass woman yourself, then follow these rules!

Here are 12 rules every badass woman follows to be all that she can be.

1. Be a powerful feminine woman

While a badass woman possesses the soft and caring nature of a feminine woman, she also has incredible power.

Confused?

Don’t be.

You see, in today’s society, our definition of femininity is a little fuzzy.

For some reason, most people believe that if you’re an overly feminine female you’re simply passive and a pushover.

But this completely misses the mark.

Femininity is also about being powerful and sexy. It’s about owning your sexual power.

You know the type of woman I’m talking about:

Walking confidently in high heels with her shoulders back and chin up.

Everyone can’t help but stare. Males are attracted to her powerful sexual energy. Females envy her confidence.

And she knows how to use this energy to flirt with any man she desires.

This is why everyone loves Beyonce. Her sex appeal radiates through her confidence and power.

A woman who understands the power of her femininity knows she is of high value and doesn’t need a man to take care of her.

She is confident in who she truly is.

That’s the kind of feminine female that has true power.

2. Be sure of yourself and your strength.

A badass woman has incredible inner strength and belief.

You don’t have to scream it from the rooftops, but inside you need to know that you are strong and no one can ever take that away from you or intimidate it out of you.

Deep down you know the power you possess. Everything you’ve gone through in life has made you into the amazing woman you are now.

Be confident that you’ve learned a lot in your life. You’re ready for anything.

3. Show courage and bravery.

What’s the worst that could happen?

A badass woman is brave. She doesn’t care what other people think of her. She stays focused on what she wants and is not afraid to take risks.

She has confidence in herself and knows that no matter what has happened in her life, she can rise above it by showing bravery.

Some of us learn that through tough times. Others, learn that through bravery in the face of adversity.

I learned mine in the most unlikely of places: dance class!

The first time I stepped onto a dance floor with my full body weight behind it, I fell hard. But I did it again and again until I found my footing in life.

And now I am a dance teacher myself!

Don’t underestimate yourself! Your beliefs are your power and you can be brave no matter what happens in your life.

4. Always bring out the best in others.

Think a badass woman is all about yourself? Think again!

A badass woman brings out the best in others. She is confident enough in herself to see greatness in everyone else.

That’s why she can make any team she is on better and that’s why people love working with her.

There’s no competition between her and other team members because she knows that together, they are greater than any one person could ever be alone.

She doesn’t have to be the best. She can encourage others to do the best they’ve ever done because of her support and encouragement.

5. Set goals and pursue them.

Don’t get me wrong. It’s great to have passions but you can’t just sit around waiting for the right moment to go after them.

You have to make that moment happen!

Write down your goals, no matter how big or small they are and do the hard work necessary to achieve them.

Once you’ve decided what it is you want, go for it! You will get there if you work hard enough for it.

There’s no taking shortcuts. If there was, everyone would be doing it.

Don’t let others tell you how you should live your life and what you should do to achieve your dreams.

6. Have fun!

If you aren’t having fun, what’s the point?

There is no set age limit on having fun. You can have tons of fun right now!

You don’t need a man, or a fancy lifestyle to have a good time.

You can make your own fun.

Go on a hike, take a bike ride or go out with your friends.

Do something you’ve always wanted to do but never took the time to consider or do it!

Make it happen! Be spontaneous and don’t worry about what others might think of your choices.

As long as you are having a fun and loving life, there’s nothing wrong with that.

7. Be opinionated.

What do you think about things? Don’t hold your opinions in!

If you have something to say, say it! If someone disagrees with you, they may have a different view of the world than you and that’s fine.

There is no right or wrong when it comes to opinions. You have strong moral values and if you think something, then there is bound to be a logical reason for it.

If other people don’t like what you have to say, let them be offended if they want. You can’t win them all anyway!

They have no right to control your thoughts. You are entitled to think whatever you want.

8. Be independent and self-sufficient.

You don’t need a man or a fancy lifestyle to be happy and successful in life. This is not a feminist thing, by the way.

Men have this idea that you have to have a fancy lifestyle to be happy and/or successful in life. But this is not true at all.

You can be happy, successful and independent without being married or owning a house.

Believe it or not, but there are some women who are successful on their own and don’t need a man in their lives.

What I’m telling you is not just a feminist principle. It is a fact of life.

9. Take care of yourself and your body.

This one goes hand in hand with being confident in yourself and who you are.

You are strong and brave and no one can take that away from you, but if you don’t take care of yourself, it will show in your confidence and dealings with others.

Take care of your body and you will have a healthier, happier life. If you’re not healthy, you’re not being the best person that you can be!

This means don’t put yourself down or make yourself feel bad about how you look.

Don’t let others make you feel badly about yourself. You are worthy of life, health and happiness.

10. Embrace who you are and own it!

A badass woman is comfortable with herself and her circumstances in life. She accepts herself 100% and refuses to change anything about herself just to fit into someone else’s ideal.

She has a lot of fun with her life and doesn’t worry about what people think of her. She understands that we are all different, but we are all the same in some ways too.

Her flaws make her who she is and she wouldn’t have it any other way.

She is comfortable with who she is, even if others aren’t!

11. Be brave enough to love yourself.

You are worthy and deserving of love. Don’t be afraid to give it to yourself.

Only you can make yourself happy, so don’t think that someone else is going to do that for you.

If you don’t love yourself, how can anyone else?

There is no one who understands you like you do, so always be your own biggest fan! You deserve all the love there is in the world!

12. Don’t let others tell you what to do.

You are capable of making your own decisions and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

Sometimes people try to tell you what to do because they cannot accept who you are or believe that is the best option for you.

If that’s the case, don’t listen to them at all! They have no clue what is good for you and sometimes their advice isn’t even realistic.

They are not your friend and they are only looking out for themselves.

Putting yourself first

Hey, Lachlan from Hack Spirit here.

What’s your number one goal at the moment?

Is it to buy that car you’ve been saving up for?

To finally start that side-hustle that’ll hopefully help you quit your 9-5 one day?

Or to take the leap and finally ask your partner to move in?

Whatever it is, you’re not going to get there, unless you’ve got a plan.

And even then…plans fail.

But I didn’t write this to you to be the voice of doom and gloom…

No, I’m writing this because I want to help you achieve the goals you’ve set.

I’ve recently been taking part in a workshop called Life Journal created by teacher and career coach Jeanette Brown.

Covering all the basics and more on what’s needed to reach your goals, Jeannette tackles everything from creating habits and new behavior patterns to putting your plans into action.

She doesn’t mess around – this workshop will require effort on your part but that’s the beauty of it – Jeanette has carefully designed it to put YOU in the driving seat of your life.

Click here to find out more about Life Journal.

So…think back to that important goal I asked about at the start of this message.

How much do you want it?

Are you willing to put the effort in to get there?

If so, check out the workshop here.

If you do take part, I’d love to hear how your Life Journey goes!

All the best,
Lachlan
