Ready to live the Bold Boss Life?

Many times when I look back at it, 2017 was not my year at all. Sometimes I feel that way about 2018 too, and we’re only in the third month. From heartbreak and heartache to disappointment and just plain ol’ ‘Damn, why am I not Beyoncé yet?’… so much can come in between you and your dreams in a year…or even less. Does that mean it’s not your year yet? Not even close.

When I do take the time to wipe the murky pessimism smeared across my glasses, however, I realize that every year is MY year. In fact, it’s been that way from the day I was born! Because in between the heartache and the heartbreak were invaluable life lessons I didn’t have to borrow a student loan to learn; and disappointment is always accompanied by a hard dose of reality that’s better than what any doctor could have ordered to cure you from your seemingly incurable bout of ‘head-in-the-clouds-itis’.

Too often, we’re so caught up in all the things that went wrong, or the things that didn’t go the way we planned that we completely miss all the things that went right, and the blessings we picked up along the way. For many of us (not counting the devout Christians who talk to God everyday as they should), the only time God hears from you, it’s to say, ‘Please may I have…’.

When was the last time you prayed just to say, ‘thank you’? When was the last time you looked at all the things you do have, instead of what you don’t? How about the last time you took inventory of the talents you have, instead of moaning about the fact that your life is a mess because you can’t sing like Whitney Houston or smack a Grand Slam like Serena Williams?

That’s what living the Bold Boss Life is all about…Issa lifestyle!

It’s YOUR year to quit sitting around whining about who you aren’t and what you’re not. It’s time to reclaim your power, take stock of your talents and start charting your own path to success – on your terms and by your definition. It’s time to decide what you want out of life, and designing the path that’s going to take you there.

We’re not going after the breadcrumbs left in the path by someone else – no! You’re going to blaze your own trail and make your own mark on this world – because that’s what bosses do. And in case you haven’t realized it yet, that’s what you are! Only you control your destiny, because only you know what you can do versus what you’ll need help with, and only you can define your own success.

A quote by David Viscott comes to mind as I write this, ‘The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away’. That said, I’ve received many blessings and lessons that I know can help another woman like myself find her way in the world, and chart her own success. This blog is my way of sharing these gifts and helping you find your inner boss.

We can all win—once we accept who we are and start doing what we need to do to achieve our dreams. So be blameless in acceptance of who you are, what you’ve done, mistakes you’ve made and lessons you’ve learnt. And live shamelessly in pursuit of what you want from life.

Ready?

I know I am!

XO, Amber Christe
