Smart girls don’t need tricks and lies to get what they want. Matter of fact, we represent hard work, strength and charity. We have been through the storm and survived. We don’t use our beauty and charms to manipulate people into getting what we want because we can get it anyway!
Being a girl of substance is as much acknowledging your power as it is being humble about it. Believe it or not a nation is made or broken by its women, we can hold up or tear a house, make love or make war.
You must recognize that power isn’t about winning, or about cameras flashing but its about believing in yourself, creating a sisterhood, asking for what you want straight up, showing up and never giving up.
Here are some few tricks to live by.
- check your emotions
- remain true to your dreams
- cut and let go when shit aint right somewhere
- do not settle for less
- be ready for power and all that comes with it
- stand proud, because you are a girl with power!
Hey ladies🙋🏽♀️ as you may all know, its really important to handle your finances very well. Its crucial to have some cash with you for emergencies ,right? May it be for future use, for quick transactions that you never anticipated or to be able to afford some of the things you really want. If you are a student, you dont wanna go on a date broke and with no sufficient money on you or your card. That is not good for your self confidence!🙄
Save for some of those Fenty or Mac cosmetics that you have been eyeing for a while or those beautiful boots at your favourite boutique that you just go to browse but never get to buy anything because its too expensive.
If you are employed you might want to go harder and buy that car you really want, move to that beautiful home that you dream about every single day, get a rainy day fund for in-between employment or finally be able to travel to your favourite destinations like you always dreamed of doing! 🤗”thats what I wanna do. Yaaay”
The best options are for you to save up or invest in what you want because honestly having to depend on another person to achieve your goals can prove to be an excruciating experience.
According to Wells Fargo, few women have little or no education in managing their finances and even fewer have a high level of experience in investments. Thats why its really important for you as a modern woman to educate yourself on managing your finances, getting a savings plan and investing in high return investments e.g. growth assets like stocks.
Things you need to know once you make the decision to be on top of your finances are:
- Live beneath your means
- Set up a rainy day fund just for you
- Learn more, educate yourself, buy those books that will inspire you.
- Cut off some lifestyles that make you spend more e.g. eating out
- Set your investment/savings goals
- Consult a financial expert (brokers or your bank).
- Be more confident about your finances
- Diversify your savings and investments.
- Be consistent
- Practice discipline and patience. This will eventually pay off in the long run.
Be intent on action, not on the fruits of the action.
Avoid attraction to the fruits and attachment to inaction!
Perform actions, firm in discipline. Relinquishing attachment.
Be impartial to failure and success– this equanimity is called discipline 😊.
Spend some, save some and give a lot of it to someone in need.✔🔱
I felt this😊.
May God keep blessing you @thegodlychicdiaries. It is in giving that we realize the exact love that God hopes for us. Amen
I always feel like I want to be somewhere else all the time.
I Can’t focus on the little rocks I stumble on. I can’t focus on the reasons why I can’t be where I wanna be.
All I can think of, is my future. The exciting part, the almost unsure part.
But my hopeful mind will never tire.
Until the day I find home, where I belong.
I wish you luck in finding your place, your home in this vast world. 😘😘
