get social


Monday, 5 September 2016


We all have hopes, aspirations and dreams for life...but sometimes these can seem overwhelming and unreachable. But everything should be within our grasp, as long as we work for it. As cringey as it sounds, we do all have the ability to create the life we want.
Follow Pretty52's guide to find out how to get everything you want from life:

Look for the bigger picture.

Stop stressing about the small stuff, and look at life overall. We're not saying you have to map out every part of it (where's the fun in that?!) but it's good to have a general plan of where you want to be say, in the next ten years, and work towards it. Figure out what you want to do, and how to get there.

Set yourself (realistic) goals.

Let's be real, we should all be aiming for great things- but if your goal is to become a famous beauty vlogger, and you haven't even set up a YouTube channel yet, you need to step back and think of ways to make it happen. No-one is going to hand you anything for free in life, you've got to make it happen.

Remember that plans don't always work out.

Setting yourself these goals is important as they'll be clear in your mind and keep you from getting distracted. But don't feel disheartened when life throws an obstacle at you.

And when it does, know your strengths.

Work out how to deal with it to give you a chance to find yourself, become stronger as a person and realise exactly what you want from life. Focus on what is important and attainable.

Make friends everywhere you go.

Not only because you can never have enough friends in your life, but also you never know when you might need to pull in a favour. Be approachable, be friendly, get to know people. It's important not to abuse this power, but creating a network of contacts who can help you out in many different ways is vital.

It's actually OK to quit.
If you're in a job, relationship that you feel is toxic or doesn't make you happy, it's alright to walk away from it. At the end of the day it is only preventing you from progressing and doing something worthwhile. Anything you spend a majority of your time doing should enhance your life, not bring you down.

Put the effort in and go the extra mile.

No one ever remembers the girl who just did her job, who just got by, or who just met the requirements. Work your f*cking add off for something you want- not only are you more likely to get what you're after, but  you'll feel a great sense of achievement too.

Know your weaknesses.

And don't ever let anyone use them against you. Build on the elements that aren't your strongest point. Maybe you've got a short temper, or get emotional easily? Try taking a deep breath and count to ten to make sure you respond to the situation in a resourceful and respectful manner.

Keep any promises or commitments.

While making sure you get ahead in life is necessary, you should also make time for your friends, family and significant other. Don't make any promises you can't keep as this will hold you back, and if you constantly bail out or cancel, it makes you look bad too.

Hard decisions are inevitable- so start making them.

Indecisiveness is a common trait, but when it comes to something you want from life, now is not the time to deliberate over what might-or-might-not happen. Some decisions might be difficult but if it leads you to the right place, they're worth it.

Do not compromise.

This is your dream and your life. Not someone else's, so don't forget that. Take control and never let anyone walk over you.

Follow your intuition.

The only way to get what you want in life, is to follow what you believe is right for you. Don't let anything cloud your judgement or tell you that you're not good enough. Haterz 'gon hate.

Don't confuse your work with your life. 
Working hard is critical in order to make a life for yourself, but remember that the most important part of your life is the relationships you build with others. Make time to spend it with those you love around you.

Never give up.
They say 'perseverance is the key to success' - so keep trying at something until you get it. The worst you will hear is 'no', and if you do, it's time to try again.

Believe in yourself.

Yes, as cheesy as it sounds it is important to know that you can do it. Come across as confident when you want something, you've worked hard for it and deserve a chance just as much as anyone else. You be that kickass superhero!
