"I'm not bossy, I just have better ideas."
I thought these were great examples of The Freak Factor since they reframe bossiness, an apparent weakness, as the possession of superior knowledge, an obvious strength.
This reminded me of the song Bossy by Kelis, which starts off with the lyrics . . .
"You don't have to love me. You don't even have to like me, but you will respect me. You know why? Cause I'm a boss."
Do people tell you that you are too bossy? Have you been trying to get better at letting other people take charge?
Forget about that. Here's a three-step process that will work much better.
- Be the boss.
- Download "Bossy" and play it loudly.
- Buy the bossy t-ehirt and wear it proudly.
Some people may not like you, but others will respect you.
