Being in the real world no matter if you’re in college, or post-grad there are successful people everywhere we look. The people who can set their mind to anything + accomplish their goal far beyond what they ever imagined. While it’s enticing to envy them, it’s better to understand their mindset + learn their secrets to success. It’s likely that they are wired to always see the best in people + #RadiatePositiveVibes in every situation or opportunity. ++ this lifestyle starts with a positive vocabulary! Below are a few phrases you’ll never catch a successful person say, + if you’re looking for a way to get ahead, you too should delete them from your phrase book.
1] *I CAN’T*
Successful people are natural optimists! This phrase, along with *it’s too hard* or *it’s impossible* are things you will never hear out of their mouths. No matter the challenges they are faced they are determined to overcome the obstacle. Whether it’s changing their mindset to tackle turning a big task into smaller ones, or getting creative with their thinking. Successful CHAARGies are girls who have the ability to empower themselves to set lofty dreams + won’t be satisfied until they accomplish them. You too can set incredible dreams + you have the ability to reach them with a positive vocabulary, which will lead to a positive mindset.
2] *I DON’T NEED HELP*
Trying to do everything in life by yourself can be a struggle. You might be unmotivated to get your CHAARGBOOTYCAMP sweat sesh in, or need an accountability buddy for eating healthy. Successful people know when to ask for help, who to ask + how to delegate tasks most efficiently. There is nothing worse than trying to do it all by yourself all the time. Sometimes you need that extra push to make it to your weekly Studio Spotlight, help studying for Business Finance or Chemistry, or even help with something more serious happening in your life. You don’t have to think you can handle it all – there is a huge community of 1,000+ girls that have your back + CHAARGies are more than willing to help you!
3] *IT’S NOT MY FAULT*
Nobody’s perfect [queue Hannah Montana throwback ; )], but seriously everyone makes mistakes. A main difference between successful people + others is that successful people can claim responsibility for mistakes made ++ move on from it. Being able to accept that you have messed up + most importantly, learning from those mess ups will put you on a quick path to success. Owning that you aren’t perfect will help you gain other’s trust because you are being real, open + honest with them.
4] *THIS IS HOW IT’S ALWAYS BEEN DONE*
Forward-thinking, flexible + pro-active are all words to describe a successful leader. This means they are constantly coming up with new ideas, innovative thoughts + out of the box solutions. They are constantly challenging current processes + ask *why?* more than a toddler who is just learning about the world. Thinking about the past will leave you in the dust – leave the past where it needs to be + start thinking in the present ++ into the future. You will be ahead of the game + could turn a *why?* into a brilliant new idea to benefit not only yourself, but others.
5] *WHY CAN’T I BE LIKE THEM?*
*Stop comparing your behind the scenes to someone else’s highlight reel,* says Sophia Amoruso, the #GirlBoss herself. This is especially prevalent during the CHAARGBOOTYCAMP. You each have your own life + every journey has its’ own highs + lows, ups + downs, joys, challenges + difficulties. Decide now that you will not spend your energy speculating about someone else’s journey + how it compares to yours. Your path is unique, own it + make the best of it.
Throughout the CHAARGBOOTYCAMP there will be success stories around every turn. Whether that’s when you return to school + see your best CHAARG friend who committed to a lifestyle change during the FitPlan, or scrolling through your inCHAARG insta account full of other girl’s life changing stories on your newsfeed – instead of thinking *why can’t I be like them?* focus your attention on *how can I train my mind to #RadiatePositiveVibes in every situation + take CHAARG of each opportunity given to me?*
