If you follow me on social media, you may have seen the quote below.
While at the nail salon on Saturday, I came across this quote from Ivanka Trump in the February 2013 issue of O Magazine. When you’re chasing your dreams, you may sometimes feel as if you’re not good enough: you don’t know enough, you don’t have enough experience for people to want to give you a chance, etc.
This quote really stuck to me. As I pursue turning my stylist business into my career, I often feel that I’m not good enough because things don’t APPEAR to be going in the direction I envision as quickly as I’d like. I didn’t grow up wanting a life in fashion. I didn’t attend a fashion school or intern with a fashion magazine. I often think ”will I ever get there? Is it really possible?”
Whenever you start to doubt yourself, remember that the drive you have is what sets you apart from the rest. There are a lot of smart people in the world that talk about doing x,y and z, but there are only a few that actually take a chance and work towards making their dreams a reality. Those that we see living their dreams are ones that are PASSIONATE and kept pushing forward with they faced failure and doubt from others.
I pray that we, through passion and faith, succeed in reaching the goals that have been placed on our hearts!
