Some days you want to flip on old Friends episodes and sob into a pint of double chocolate chip and quit your business. And if you don’t allow yourself to feel your emotions, if you try to deny them, suppress them, or pretend that everything is fine (because – HAPPINESS!), then you are going to end up in a tire-slashing, internet-raging rampage that will ruin you. THE TRUTH ABOUT BECOMING A SPIRITUAL BADASS Join our fun, free community, and get the support and connection you’ve been looking for: About the Author There’s a way to become a Spiritual Badass, but it’s not for the faint of heart. That’s okay, because you aren’t the kind of person who gets scared of easily. You’re the woman who props up her lady balls and says, “I’ve got this.” 1. STOP HIDING BEHIND A SMILE. You aren’t here to be nice to every condescending a-hole or pretend to be deferential to other’s ridiculous ideas. Voice your opinions, girl! You matter, and people need to hear your ideas. 2. DON’T APOLOGIZE FOR WHAT YOU HAVE TO SAY. You don’t need to soften your words or preface your ideas with things like, “What I think is,” or “I’m sorry, but I believe…” Ain’t nobody got time for that. If you want to be badass, step into your confidence and say what you have to say. 3. DON’T BELIEVE THE ANSWERS CAN BE FOUND IN A BOOK. While religious works can hold great stories, they’re just maps to point you in the right direction. The same is true for business books. We all wish there was a manual for life, but the most badass woman will recognize that the Truth comes from inside herself. Becoming a Spiritual Badass is a process. You’re already on the journey, and you’ll continue to grow and become more confident the more you learn and surround yourself with others on the path.
