How to become that girl in 2023
Here are 12 tips to make you that girl.
Tip 1: That girl knows what she wants
To be that girl you should know what you want from life. You will not have clarity and be that girl until you know what exactly are your life priorities. You can surely follow some YouTube videos of that girl’s life but that is her life. It may not be beneficial for you. So, being clear with your life goals and your “that girl” persona is very important on your journey to be that girl.
So, do some brainstorming and set some goals to make a better life. I suggest making a vision board. It will give you clarity, a direction to work and displaying the vision board will inspire you on your mission to become that girl and manifest your dream life.

I also highly recommend you to set some goals and plan action to achieve them, as you meet our goals you will get more confident. Challenge your potential to make progress in your life.

Tip 2: That girl don’t worry about others
That girl has a vision for life and works towards fulfilling it. You cannot distract yourself by the opinion of others or restrict yourself from taking actions worried about what others think. Unless you are hurting others that is no right and wrong. The thing that is right for you may be wrong for others. You have to make your life choice and not decide on the basis of others’ liking. For me even if I make a wrong decision it doesn’t bother me much because I own it but when I do something that others would want me to do and it goes wrong I regret it hard as it was not what I believed in and did because of others and I have to deal with it.
It’s human tendency to seek validation from others but the more you do it the more power you are giving others about your life. Seeking validation from others, lowers our confidence, brings stress and hampers your creativity. So, stop seeking validation from others. You don’t want to be another brick in the wall, you want to be that girl whom others admire. It’s ok to discuss with a few selective people who have knowledge on matters under discussion but ultimately everything should be your decision.
Tip 3: That girl take care of herself
That girl prioritizes herself, she knows that she has to be in good health, take care of her mental health. You should work on building healthy habits and develop a healthy lifestyle that includes exercise, eating a balanced diet, and getting enough sleep and keeping yourself hydrated. You should work on taking care of your physical, mental and emotional health.
You can also include meditation in your daily routine to reduce stress and bring more calmness in your life. You should regularly pamper yourself as self care practice and reward yourself for achievements. It is very important to feel good about yourself to be that girl.
Tip 4: That girl learns to improve herself
That girl is always on a journey to make herself better which means you have to always be learning. There are many ways to keep learning.
It can be enrolling for a new course to level up your skills at work or getting additional qualification to move forward in your career.
It can be reading self help books to make yourself better and develop soft skills.
It can be taking up a new hobby just to feel more creative and have productive use of your time outside work.
