The ‘Pretty’ Secrets
Ladies Life Lounge is based around our Pretty Secrets, and these fall into several categories. We believe that effectively mastering these areas will help you to live the happy, fulfilling, successful life that you deserve!
In the members club there’s training, masterclasses and self-development based around all of these secrets – and it there’s something you’d like us to talk about then let us know, and if it’s not our area of expertise we’ll bring in an expert for you.
Confidence means to have faith in, or trust yourself. Sadly we weren’t created with a magical confidence switch on our backs, nor can you order it from Amazon. Lots of people operate by the mantra Fake it til you Make it which in our view doesn’t necessarily work. There’s no need to put your energy into faking it when you can put that energy to better use and truly get comfortable and capable in your own skin. It’s time to dig deep and peel back the layers of yourself. Now, as human beings we are all driven by a sense of self worth and self worth comes from having real purpose in who you are and what you do. It’s all about working out your why, and practising confidence, rather than faking it.
Do you want to accelerate your career, make more money in your business, or have stronger, happier relationships?If that’s you then you need the 21st century skill The Art of Assertiveness. Now, lots of people have a wonky perception of what assertiveness is. They think it’s being bossy, a bit loud or outspoken, and that’s just not it. Those traits lean more to behaviour that’s aggressive, or passive aggressive. True assertiveness has a very fine balance between courage and consideration, and when you master it, your life improves dramatically. Assertiveness will liberate you, make you more confident, get you what you want for a change. It will enhance your credibility in work, or in your business, improve your personal relationships, make you happier, reduce how much you worry, and enable you to make more money.
Spinning 99 plates a day has become the norm for many ladies and it can feel like you like in a tornado most of the time. Being fulfilled and happy means having some degree of order to that chaos! It’s about getting practical and prioritising and delivering the most important things only – which definitely includes our own self-care! Anything else that comes along today will have to slot in around that or get stuffed. What’s the worst that will happen? It will wait for another day, or someone else will have to do it! We can teach you how to say no – and to put yourself first. Women are generally the emotional dictators in their house. If I’m happy my family are too – but if I’m in a foul mood, that also rubs off pretty quickly! Choosing your own happiness is vital.
Pretty Smart is the basis of our career-based skills training. Many of us modern women are out there climbing the corporate ladder, and working hard to smash through that glass ceiling but all the self confidence and self belief in the world won’t quite cut the mustard in these stakes. What’s required is lashings and lashings of skill. Not the technical bits – the interpersonal side of things. We’re over the “boys club” mentality; being played down and held back for having a miraculous body that actually GROWS PEOPLE!! The world is crying out for more women in the board room, to bring back the human side to business and make the shift to creating success based on collaboration rather than competition. It’s all about relationships.
It’s long been thought that for a woman to succeed that she needs to be tough, behave like a man and show little or no emotion. We couldn’t disagree more! When we say tough we mean being self-aware enough to know when you need help, being confident enough to reach out for it and being smart enough to learn from your experience. We’re talking resilience here and when we say that it’s not just about surviving through tricky situations or times, it’s about thriving in them! We’re talking about effective challenging, managing conflict and turning pressure into performance. We meet too many women who are scraping by each day, just about managing to keep their head above water. We want women to thrive, not just survive.
It’s no good being physically fit if your head is all over the place so here we combine the two. You’ll be amazed at the impact on your whole life when you take the time to look after your mind and body. We’re not fans of being skinny minnies for the sake of it at Ladies Life Lounge. We believe in being strong and healthy and that comes in all shapes and sizes. You won’t find any fad diets in our member’s club. A woman’s health and fitness is complex, and changes over time. So this secret is all about nutrition, sleep, stress, mindfulness, flexibility, hormones, periods, menopause, boobs, vaginas, great sex and orgasms! All in all – a holistic and whole view of being fit!
Bad hair day happening a bit too often? Feel like a sack of spuds no matter what you wear? Always got your Bridget Jones’s on these days? Is your make up starting to look cakey on your face? Billy 4-boobs by any chance? Anyone just feeling a bit boring? We hear you! If some of these things resonate with you then maybe it’s time that you got an image overhaul! This secret is about dressing and loving the body you have now – not the body you want! Once you understand your body shape, your colour palette, your style personality and your proportions, then you can build a wardrobe that makes you feel a million dollars every single day, without looking at a lettuce leaf!
