Do you think I'm bossy? Its a simple question. One I've often asked over the years. Some people laugh at me and say 'ofcourse not!', others say 'yeah, maybe!'. The thought of being bossy horrifies me. I don't want to order people around and tell everyone what to do. I like to think I'm nice and sweet and, well, not bossy!!! But there are times when you have to tell people what to do right? How else will anything ever get done? I do have three kids so right there I've perfected the art of telling them what to do. I just didnt think I'd extended it out beyond my four walls of home. But maybe I have.
You see I put a call out on Facebook for the 4370 friends of mine who havn't yet 'liked' my business page to please like it. I felt like that was the least they could do considering we were apparently 'friends'. It is right?? So anyway, there was a comment that followed saying something along the lines of me being bossy enough to have 300 of my friends 'like' the page. So it got me thinking. Oh No!! OMG!!! Was I being bossy here?? I asked my husband to read it. He never confirmed but I could tell by the look on his face that he agreed. Again, OMG, maybe I AM bossy!!
But then came another comment from another FB friend saying 'what a ballzy thing to do'. I liked that. Ballzy! Yeah, I can be ballzy. So what exactly is the difference. Well this is my take on the whole thing. Bossy is demanding people do what you want them to do. Ballzy on the other hand is taking charge of your life and the outcomes you expect and putting some action into place to achieve it. Hopefully in a half decently nice way.
So no more Miss Bossy Boots for me. I'll be nice but I will be in control, steering things the way I believe they should go. All the while, being considerate of others but always aware of the outcome I desire and going for it. Thats Ballzy!!
