How To Be A Bawse // Things I Learned

We all have been reading this amazing self help and motivational book by the one and only iisuperwomanii aka Lilly Singh.

Motivational and inspirational things I learned are:

  • Video games are a great analogy for life. You go through levels, get thrown off by obstacles, and face several enemies. The game will become harder and harder, but its okay because you become smarter, faster and more skilled.
  • The more details people know about you, the weaker you become.
  • Don’t give away all you secrets or reveal all your vulnerabilities…it’s upto you to decide what to reveal and when.
  • Everything you want is just outside your comfort zone.
  • It’s easy to look back and see how far I’ve come, but it’s harder to remember that I need to keep pushing myself.
  • To succeed at something you have to step out of your comfort zone, inch by inch. Think of discomfort as currency-it’s the price you pay to learn some pretty crucial things.
  • On the path of success, fear and discomfort are only speed bumps. Don’t make them dead ends.
  • Emotions can cloud your judgement and reduce productivity.
  • Make every struggle count and remember that experience will always be a silver lining.
  • Humans have a tendency to over complicate simple things because we overthink them. But if you take a step back and remember your priorities, it become easier to make a decision.
  • There seems to be a misconception that making mistakes make you weak or stupid, or somehow less of a person, but the truth is, making mistakes brings you one step closer to success.
  • No mistake is too big or too small to apologise for, and no ego should be too big to make that apology.
  • When you have the guts to make mistakes, great things happen. And when you have the integrity to take ownership of those mistakes, the people around you will take notice.
  • Addressing your inner issues not only is a liberating experience but also allows you to behin creating meaningful solutions.
  • Sometimes solutions can be found with just a little time, effort, and creativity.
