Gisele Bündchen, is a beautiful Brazilian model with endless legs. A lot of people look at her and wish they could be just like her, or judge her based on her profession, but there is actually so much more to Gisele.
#1 – The best you
One of Gisele’s most famous quotes is “I’m not afraid of working hard at anything, whatever it is. I just always want to be the best that I can be.” I love this quote, it shows that Gisele is motivated to be her best self and doesn’t mind a bit of hard work.
#2 – Successful Mom
Gisele juggles being a mother and being incredibly successful with ease. She says that she got more emotional after having kids but embracing your emotions is never a bad thing. Also, she FaceTimes her kids 5 times a day when she is travelling but it doesn’t stop her from earning those millions. That’s what I call an impressive mother and a successful lady.
#3 – Accept unchangeable things
Gisele says the biggest life lesson she learned so far is “to let go of things that I can not change. I embrace whatever challenges come my way” So let’s just copy and paste Gisele’s life lesson right in our life and live happily ever after?
#4 – Be independent
The Brazilian Supermodel claims that she started to pay for nearly everything herself at the age of 14. Independence is important, so earn your independence early by working hard and making your own decisions. Don’t worry if it feels like you still need to rely on people, that’s important too, just remember that the choices you make while you have your independence will help set you up for the rest of your life!
#5 – Know when to stop
Gisele announced she was retiring from modelling, which some people thought was crazy since she seemed to be on top of her game. In response to this, Gisele said, “My body automatically tells me if what I do is worth it, and it asked to stop it. I respect my body; it’s a privilege to be able to stop.”” What wise words. A lot of us don’t take the signals our body is giving to us seriously, when you need to step down – do so!
