11 Reasons You Don’t Need A Guy To Have The Life You Want

You’re strong, smart, and incredibly badass all on your own, and you certainly don’t need a guy who complete you or fulfill your vision of a perfect life. You’re capable of that all on your own. How far you go in life and how much you achieve have nothing to do with finding Mr. Right. Don’t believe me? Consider this:

  1. Women can be and are on top more and more. And I don’t just mean in the physical sense. Women are holding more and more positions of power and rising to the top of their chosen fields like never before. You can be on top too — all you have to do is go after what you want and don’t stop until you get there.
  2. You’re in control, not someone else. This is your life. Stop listening to what other people think is best for you or what they think you are capable of achieving. You’re the one who decides that you can be successful, and it’s up to you to take on that responsibility and do the work to get where you want to be. Take full control of your dreams and make them happen.
  3. You’re stronger than you think. If you keep doubting yourself, you’re never going to get the success that you’re looking for. If only you knew how much power you have locked up inside of you, you would never be afraid of not reaching your goals. Don’t pretend to be weaker than you really are just to be with a guy. Own up to all the awesome power you have inside you. You’re capable of things beyond your wildest dreams so stop worrying about making success happen and just do the damn thing already.
  4. There’s no limit to your potential. You maybe haven’t realized this, but there really are no limits in this world if you’re willing to work hard. You can do, be, and have anything that you want. And the potential for all of those things is yours. It doesn’t matter what you’ve achieved before because you always have the potential to do better and be better, no matter what you’re up against.
  5. Everything you need is inside of you. Looking for the answers in someone else isn’t going to get you anywhere. Trying to find strength or results in someone else isn’t going to make you successful. You already have what you need to be successful inside of yourself. You just need to look hard to find it and foster it so you can shine.
  6. You don’t have to apologize for going after what you want in life. Don’t be someone who hides from success out of the fear of what comes along with it. Many women fear success just as much as they fear NOT being successful. You’ve earned it and you DESERVE it, so embrace it rather than running from it.
  7. You don’t need a man to support you. Seriously, you don’t. Maybe you grew up in a family where your father always supported your mother, so that’s how you think things are supposed to work. But that’s not how it has to be. You could very well support the man in your relationship if you wanted to. Don’t rely on someone else to lift you; you’ve got to do it yourself. If he’s really crazy about you, he won’t mind your success.
  8. You don’t need permission to be successful. No one is going to come along one day and tell you it’s your turn to be successful. You can’t keep waiting around for approval to do the things you want to do. This is something that I think men learn early on, but as women, we’re told to always be polite and wait for permission. Well, here’s a hint: no one’s coming to give you the green light, so go out there and take it for yourself.
  9. No man is going to give you success on a silver platter. If you’re waiting around for your knight in shining armor to come and serve you a big heaping of success, it’s time to wake up from your delusional dream. Success isn’t something that someone gives you one day, and successful women realize that. You have to be willing to do what it takes to go and get it, and don’t stop until you do.
  10. Independence is a strength, not a weakness. I think a lot of women aren’t successful because they think of independence as a weakness when in reality it could be their greatest strength. They don’t want to come off as bossy, stubborn or bitchy, but a truly independent woman knows the value of independence and uses it to her advantage.
  11. The future is female. If you’ve seen any of the female campaigns going around on social media lately, then you’ve probably seen this phrase. Women are the wave of the future, and we’re going to be the leaders of the next generation. So stop letting the men in your life hold you back. You are capable of great success all on your own — you just need to start believing in yourself and do it.
