5 Powerful Tips to Become Fearless

If you’ve ever been around a fearless, self-satisfied and independent woman, then you definitely know what the allure of such a person is. Those are the women that not only mesmerize when entering the room, but they change the whole energy and the atmosphere as well. Think about Oprah Winfrey or Meryl Streep, for example. Do you think that they can be told what to do without being shown respect? No, because Oprah and Meryl are fearless and everyone respects Oprah and Meryl. Being fearless is something that all of us should have as our goal for the future and a trait we should strive toward. However, if you feel you need to work on this (and, to be honest, this is something that we should always work on), here are five things that you should start with.

5 Powerful Tips to Become Fearless

Learn from past mistakes

First of all, a fearless woman always acknowledges her mistakes and doesn’t blame others for the poor choices she has made. They own up to their actions and try to be as fair as possible towards others. Even though the word “mistake” often has a negative connotation, that doesn’t always have to be the case. Mistakes are given to us so that we could think about them, try to figure out what went wrong, and eventually learn from them. As they say, “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger”, and a fearless woman knows this to be true. Hug your mistakes, they are your best friends. They taught you things you will never do again.

Accept criticism

No one is perfect (except for maybe Oprah and Meryl). First of all, it’s very important that you, as an independent person who is very satisfied with yourself, always praise others and boost their confidence instead of knocking them down. Nothing reveals your true opinion about yourself more than the words you utter to express your opinion about other people. A true hero always lifts up, exhibits positivity and empathy, and points out the positive things. However, when it comes to you, you should always accept criticism in the best way there is. Say “thank you”, even if you’re not satisfied with the words you just heard. Doing this requires strength of character, and you should definitely have plenty of that.

Educate yourself and speak up

Wherever you see an opportunity to learn, don’t miss it. Strong people feel the need to educate themselves on as many levels as they can, no matter how old they are. The education one acquires after finishing high-school or university will give her the feeling of knowing her worth, thinking before speaking, and speaking up when needed. Carefully selecting the words (which obviously requires some thinking beforehand) will help you regain respect and admiration. Moreover, speak up, and not only for yourself. If you believe in justice, stand up for anyone who is not as powerful and extrovert as you are.

Love your style

Being satisfied with oneself firstly requires being satisfied with the way you look. Since we live in the age of plastic surgeries, botox, contouring and, basically, judging others by the way they look, it’s not easy to achieve this. However, you don’t have to be a model to look good. The whole fashion industry is producing excellent designs that everyone can wear – starting with very trendy plus size fashion clothes to the ones for petite women. A strong woman is confident about her style, and that confidence can easily be seen on her face. After all, it’s not what you wear, it’s how you wear it.

Know when it's OK to ask for help

Sometimes, you should take that superwoman cape off, as asking for help is nothing embarrassing. Collaborating with other human beings is always a good thing – try to see how others see you, and ask for their opinion. You’ll be surprised by how much other people can help you. Asking for help is nothing to be ashamed of and you shouldn’t run from it, as it reveals strength rather than weakness. Embrace it, as it can help you become an even stronger and more fearless person in the future.

Always love yourself

You should come at the top of the list. Let go of negativity, and embrace positivity. Accept differences and be satisfied with the things that you have in life. And also, never be scared of anything or anyone. Good luck in becoming the most fearless person you know.
