If you were to call me ghetto. I'd say thanks for the compliment!
You can take the girl out of the ghetto but you can't take the ghetto out of the girl. If you were to call me ghetto. I'd say thanks for the compliment!
Because there's no better time than now to work on yourself as much as possible as a single woman. Grow yourself so you can grow as a person both personally and professionally.
You will be more attractive and meeting a high caliber guy will be a lot easier. How you do anything is how you do everything. So I thought I'd talk about 2 habits that I think women should work to break.
Habit #1 Proscrastination
Habit #2 Perfectionism
Procrastination and perfectionism often go hand in hand. Do you put things off because they’re never good enough? If you spend all your time trying to make things perfect, it’s no surprise they NEVER get done. It’s said that successful people fail more than unsuccessful people. Why do I think it’s important? You can learn from your mistakes. You can correct your mistakes. When you’re starting something you might have to get through those ackward stages and it might seem “Ghetto” but if you stay the course and work to refine it, correct it & polish it, it can end up being darn “Fabulous”.
Growing up in the gritty Iberville projects in New Orleans gave me the proper credentials to be called "Ghetto Fabulous” but I thought it would now be an appropriate time to update the definition of “Ghetto Fabulous”.
I think a woman who is “Ghetto Fabulous” strives for excellence versus perfection. She is willing to take risks and is not afraid of messing up or making mistakes during the process. She doesn't have a severe case of "Worrying About What Other People Think Syndrome". Get it? You are living your life fully flawed & all.
You see when you’re “Ghetto Fabulous” you are living your life full out today. You're not waiting for tomorrow. You especially don't put off til tomorrow what you know you should do today. You're going for it! You are making things happen, getting stuff done now, no matter where you live or where you're at in your life.
You're not hiding out and missing out on life because you're "Not Perfect".
Write this on a note card & carry it in your purse. Excellence is better than perfection…
A short time ago I would say I'm a "Perfectionist" as if it were a badge of honor. It's amazing what happened when I let that go in my life. I know I can’t be perfect but I can be excellent. Excellence is not the same as perfection. Perfection is not attainable, and chasing it is like trying to squeeze your booty in jeans that don't fit. However you can be excellent exactly where you are right now. That’s right you can go the extra mile & strive for excellence now. You will feel more confident.
What does that mean?
It means that you take care of yourself now. You pay attention to your personal style with your existing wardrobe. You're not saying I'd dress better if I had more clothes or if I could wear this designer. You rock what's in your closet today. You surround yourself with those that inspire you and find time to hang out with fabulous friends & family.
You might be adventurous and love to travel. Your doing it! You’re not afraid to treat yourself and indulge in life’s simple pleasures. You are definitely not waiting for Mr. Right to make your life “Right”. I think it’s important to have a life of your own that’s fierce & fabulous without a guy. You don't have to be Ms. Perfect to have it all!
Ladies it's time to stop making excuses why you're not presenting your best self. If you want the best in others, present your best?
Essentially, work with what you’ve got & make the most of it until you can do better or it gets better. The more you do, the better you get but if you’re not taking the necessary steps you’re not giving yourself the chance of getting better & being extraordinary. 2 words that I'd like you to incorporate in your daily vocabulary Sexy & Successful!
What are you putting off today that’s preventing you from being “Ghetto Fabulous”? Your time is now to be a little ghetto…I think you will be a much happier woman and far more attractive to the opposite sex.
