Fun, Fearless Female Goals for the New Year
We’re excited to kick off the year with a new digital romance series, Harlequin Dare, this February. Dare romances feature strong, independent women and we’re taking their lead for our fun, fearless female goals for 2018.
Try something that scares you
Boss lady Eleanor Roosevelt knew what was up. To change how you feel about something, you have to change how you behave. Each time you do something that scares you, you’ll feel stronger and more confident because you’ve taken control over your life. Start small (like attending an event stag) and work your way up.
Give yourself more credit
You’ve probably heard this statistic: men apply for a job when they meet sixty percent of the qualifications, but women apply only if they meet a hundred percent of them. Stop the self-doubting and start recognizing all the things you do and the challenges you’re capable of taking on. Don’t wait for other people to give you validation.
Embrace your emotions
Don’t let labels like “aggressive” and “hysterical” hold you back from saying what you really mean. Women are allowed to be ambitious, assertive and sometimes angry. Emotional intelligence is a crucial skill for leaders, so instead of bottling up your emotions, acknowledge your feelings and become self-aware.
Embrace your flaws
Embracing your flaws isn’t anti-self-improvement. Instead of letting your flaws hold you back, treasure your individuality and see if you can’t make a flaw into a strength! The sooner you focus on who you are and not who you think you are, the sooner your authentic self can shine through.
Let us know in the comments if you’ll be adopting any of these goals for 2018.
