It’s time to find your Fierce and Fearless voice! If you’ve ever been called a “smart cookie” or a “tough cookie”. It means you’re sweet & will stand up for yourself any day of the week. Yet speaking up and having a voice doesn’t mean we use it well.
What is it that you want right now? I’d like you to write it down. Think about it. If this is something that you really want. Please tell me why aren’t you going after it? Are you feeling weak? Are you feeling like you’re not equipped to bring it to fruition? What is holding you back?
I was once described as a “tough (chocolate chip) cookie”. The irony about that is I don’t particularly care for chocolate chip cookies. In fact my favorites are peanut butter, oatmeal & lemon cookies.
You see sometimes women hear the word tough & they immediately think it will diminish their femininity. When in fact it’s the complete opposite. When you are tough, you are 100% unequivocally standing in your feminine power.
Speak your mind.
I see so many women who are afraid to stand up for themselves. Yes “Worrying About What Other People Think Syndrome” is on the rise. We have been taught to be strong and overcome our fear of asking for what we want. It’s time to put it to good use.
I think it’s important to be outspoken & develop your communication skills so you are taken seriously & still get the results you want.
If “smart cookie” or a “tough cookie” is resonating with you. Congratulations! You are brave and chances are go through problems in your life easily, you can stand up for yourself, and you are not a pushover.
If you’ve never been called a “tough cookie” it might be time to align with the characteristics of one so you can be more secure with who you are, develop your own identity & refuse to be treated like a subordinate.
“Tough cookies” have spent years developing a strong character; they don’t complain and work diligently to overcome obstacles. It doesn’t have to take you years but if you commit you’ll find yourself reaping the benefits of your new characteristics a lot sooner.
If you are holding back right now, playing small, being soft or taking baby steps. Make your move BEFORE you are ready. Make the decision to be the woman who is determined to do what they want and know that you will succeed even in difficult situations. Life will be a lot sweeter!
