Bollywood consists of some real legendary actors. And some aren’t just brilliant on screen, but also in real life and there’s so much we can learn from them. They’re committed and dedicated too. One such gem is the very talented Richa Chadha. We had the opportunity to get her views on what traits make an ideal #GirlBoss. Here’s what she listed down.
1. Be Patient
To be a good lady boss, it’s important to develop patience. While dealing with stressful situations and difficult people, this trait is necessary. One must be patient with one’s self and with others alike.
2. Have Compassion
It’s important to have compassion for others and yourself too. Having this trait will let you give the benefit of the doubt to people when it’s required.
3. Have The Ability To Forsee Opportunities
For every girl boss, it’s important to identify a need in the market that fills a void where required. Richa gives us the example of Malini Agarwal a.k.a MissMalini who identified the need for readers to get information on Bollywood actors and movies.
4. Have The Ability To Distinguish Between Envy-Driven Criticism And Constructive Criticism
Not everyone can handle criticism. While most people get offended, a girl boss should be able to identify the criticism that’ll help her grow and evolve and ignore the haters.
5. Have Confidence
Having confidence is key. It’s important to believe in yourself and your dreams. If you don’t, no one else will. Be confident and hold your head up high!
6. Have The Ability To Delegate
It’s easy to throw your weight around and dump your work on others. But what a real girl boss should do, is know the right person for the job.
7. Possess The Tact Of Being Assertive, Not Aggressive
There’s a difference between the two. You should put your point across, but there’s no need to be rude or aggressive about it.
8. Integrity Is Non-Negotiable
There is no need to sacrifice your integrity for anything, ever. This is sacred and should not be compromised under any circumstances.
9. Be Provocative
According to Richa, you can’t be a sitting duck. You need to bare your fangs when needed, even if it is just for show. It’s important to be fierce and not be taken for granted.
10. Faith In Yourself And The Divine Plan
Lastly, Richa tells us to have faith in ourselves and not give up. She also tells us to have faith in the divine plan and trust that everything happens for a reason.
If you’re aspiring to be a great #GirlBoss, these points will surely help you get there. We’ve truly been inspired by Richa and love her spirit!
