Life can be hard, but it can also be a lot of fun. But it won’t be fun or rewarding if you are doing things in your life that you don’t want to even do. Being someone that is hesitant, passive, or even shy, can lead to many missed opportunities and not checking off the goals on your list. Progress is made when people are bold. If you think about someone that you admire, then think about why and how they got to where they are in their life right now. Were they bold and want to go out and get what they wanted, or did they just wait for an opportunity to come to them?
Being bold isn’t about being the loudest person in the room. It is about knowing yourself, knowing what you want, and then going out to get it. If you want to be bold and unstoppable, then here are some of the things that you can do to give yourself a boost.
Fake It Until You Make It
Think about the people that you admire or those who are doing the things that you want to be doing. What would you do if you were in their shoes for a day? Spend some time thinking about it, and then go out and act like it! Fake it until you make it is a common phrase, but it works, so why not give it a try? Pretend to be bold, until it comes naturally.
Make the first move
If you are ever feeling quite unsure or hesitant about something, then being bold is about making the first move and just going for it. This could be when it comes to interacting with a colleague, a potential partner, a current partner, or a family member or friend. It can take swallowing your pride to apologise and make the first move in that instance, so it can work in a variety of ways. Be bold and think about what you can do each day to make the first move. Your life can be happier and richer for it.
Make a list
Thinking about what you want to be doing to improve your life is one thing. But actually going out there to write down the things that you want to improve is bold. When you are specific and know what you are looking to do, you can then go for the life that you are after. You might want to get healthier or might want to change your career. For example, you might want to get into something you’re passionate about, such as natural medicine. It may be niche, but there are associations out there that can help, like The ANP who assists its members. So make a list of where you want to be in life, and then you can plan how you can be bold to go after what you want.
Getting out of your comfort zone is something that everyone should look to do on a daily basis. When you do this, you are being bold, and will be on the way to building the life that you really want.
