Wondering how to be a go-getter? A go-getter can embrace any challenge and get anything done, she is optimistic and enthusiastic and will go above and beyond to get stuff done, while being kind to herself when she needs it. A go-getter knows when to back down and when to stand up, she’s confident and she’s courageous. We all have a go-getter inside us ready to get stuff done and smash our goals, it’s all about how you get into the mindset and remind yourself that at your core, you are a go-getter.
Edit your life
If there’s one thing we all do, it’s ignoring the fact that we hold on to a lot of negativity. Sometimes we keep people in our lives we shouldn’t. You need to sit down with yourself and go through your entire life, keep what makes you happy, ditch what makes you sad. De-clutter it like you would your house. Remove the unnecessary stuff that’s no longer part of you. You’ll create a base that you can build on.
Put your life into perspective
Do you know that feeling, the one you get when the world is beautiful, and everything is great, but you dwell on what’s missing? Don’t focus on what you don’t have, but what you do have. For me, I tell myself it could always be worse. I just think time goes by so quickly, one minute I was a kid playing in the street and now I’m an adult complaining about bills. So when life is so short, and I woke up today, why would I choose to be unhappy?
Whenever I’m down in the blues a quick phone call to mom always sorts me out. But, even a girlfriend that just “gets you” will do the job. Having a good chat with the girls or escaping home for the weekend to see family can really do a world of good. I always feel refreshed and reborn after going back home, like I’m ready to tackle the world again. Because when things get a little tough, there’s no one better to rely on than the people who love you. And sometimes it’s ok to lean on them.
Put your strengths to work
Self-reflection is really good in helping you to better understand yourself. You’ll be focusing on the positive traits that can help you excel, which will naturally lead to you feeling happier, and like a go-getter. Think about your five strengths and put them to work. Include them in your daily life and it will leave you feeling more fulfilled and confident! Because there’s a reason you’re a boss!
I quite like to think of myself as quite optimistic anyway, but when I think about it, I wouldn’t just say ‘yes’ to everything… would you? But it’s really good to try out new things even if you don’t think you will like them. You’ll be making new experiences that keep your mind stimulated and excited – it’s the way to live life and could be the key to happiness.
