Beyonce is without a doubt one of the biggest and most successful superstars of our time. A singer, songwriter, dancer, actress, and businesswoman, she has been called a modern-day feminist. Beyonce’s songs are often centred around love, relationships, as well as empowerment and female sexuality.
A dynamic entertainer, her performances are high-energy with strong choreography. Over 18 years in the business, she has sold over 100 million records worldwide, won 20 Grammy awards, and recognized as the most powerful female artist of 2015 by Forbes Magazine.
Besides, to her impressive professional career, she’s married to hip hop mogul Jay Z (Sean Carter) and mommy to four-year-old Blue Ivy. She’s smart, successful, and in charge of her life and career. Here are 5 awesome things that you can learn from Queen Bey herself, Beyonce:
Love Your Body
Beyonce is known for her voluptuous curves and flaunts them as no one else can. She’s proud to show her body and Destiny’s Child made the term “bootylicious” a household phrase. It’s all about being confident about your body and loving yourself completely. The more you love your body, the happier you will become.
Beyonce has shared her love for food and that she has to work out to look the way she does. That is true for us all. Release negative thoughts about your body and nourish it from the inside out with love.
My favourite Beyonce Quote
Your self-worth is determined by you. You don’t have to depend on someone telling you who you are.
Don’t Be Afraid to Ask For What You Want
Beyonce is not afraid to ask for what she wants, as we see with her popular song, “Bills, Bills, Bills.” When the song was released in 1999, there was a lot of negative criticism surrounding the lyrics.
However, Beyonce explained that there is nothing wrong with letting a man take care of you sometimes. You shouldn’t be the only one doing things in your relationship; it is a partnership.
It’s Good to Keep Your Private Life Private
One of the most things we love most about Beyonce is that she has chosen to protect her private life, particularly her marriage with Jay Z. Everyone should not know every detail of your relationship – where you go and what you do. Or do they need to see your life chronicled out on social media?
Beyonce chooses to share her life through pictures on Instagram. Know your limits and decide what you’re willing to share and other things that may come back to bite you later.
Beyonce’s songs centre around independent women and female empowerment. She believes those things should be celebrated. Feminism is not a bad word; you should expect equal rights and equal treatment.
Look deep inside yourself and take control of your own life. Being independent shows that you are secure with who you are and your choices. We see this in Beyonce through her career choices.
Always Be Classy
One thing we can say about Beyonce is that she conducts herself appropriately in the public eye. We never read or hear about her getting drunk at parties, disrespecting fans, or being crude at her shows.
We’ve all seen her wear revealing clothes but she still carries herself with class. It’s always good to be sweet, kind, and soft-spoken. If you want to impress, then follow Beyonce’s lead of being classy at all times.
No matter what you’re doing, confidence will take you a very long way. Beyonce’s work ethic is unmatched and is a testament to her success. You can accomplish your dreams and live life to the fullest. Beyonce is someone that all women can take notes from. Let’s channel a little bit of “Sasha Fierce” every day.
