Imagine if, on days when you are about to do something in life or in work that scares you, you could have an easy way to remember that “You got this”?
Well, you can, with your “Badass list”, based on an exercise I learned from Jen Gottlieb and Chris Winfield during the BeOnTV Challenge.
For moments when you are about to do something scary or uncomfortable, when it can be super easy to get caught up in the fear – and instead you remember that – Yes, this is hard AND I can do hard things.
This is how it works:
1. What does it mean to you to be a badass?
I know I am a badass when I am really scared about doing something, but I do it anyway; or when I stand up for what I believe in, even if that annoys the hell out of everyone else.
But what does “being a badass” mean to you?
2. Brain dump 10 times you have been a badass in your life.
3. Choose three occasions and remember what it took for you to be such a badass, and to gather your courage in both hands and do the thing?
4. Next time you are in a situation outside your comfort zone, tap back into that list. Pick something that inspires you for the situation, and remember the tools that you have to be brave.
Tell me about your badass moments in the comments.
