I want to talk, for a moment, about the importance of exhausting your resources when it comes to reaching your desired goals and progressing through life. When I started this organization, I knew absolutely nothing about business and what it was going to take in order to be successful. My background was in entertainment and the arts so it was an interesting transition for me when I decided to start this organization. I researched until I couldn’t research anymore, I reached out to people who could help me, and I wasn’t afraid of the challenge. Has this been an easy road? Absolutely not! But when you’re passionate about something, you don’t give up.
One thing you should understand is that you cannot expect success to fall into your lap without putting in the work. It’s so easy to do what’s convenient, but taking the easy way out will not benefit you long term. You have to be willing to take risks AND you have to be willing to bump your head along your journey to success. Every successful person has had to fail many times before getting to where they are now. Do not get discouraged if you’ve been working at something for a long period of time and you can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel. Trust me, from experience, the light is there, but you have to be ready to navigate through all the twists and turns and the ups and downs in order to find your way to the light.
If you have a business idea, or a talent for something unique, exhaust your resources! You have to put yourself out there! It’s so important not to be afraid to be vulnerable. Not everyone will like or support what you’re doing, but the good news is, your success isn’t based off of whether they like you or not! As long as you believe in yourself, there’s not one person who can stop you except you! So don’t hold yourself back. Trust in your abilities enough to take the plunge. It’s going to be intimidating and you may even feel like giving up but I encourage you to keep going. You’ll get there!
