Every single time you pass a change in your life span, these changes will not only influence you in most obvious ways but also bring long term and life changing opportunities. They don't say everything happens for a reason for no reason. (see what I did there ;)) Couple months ago I had dreams and fingers crossed across the heart, now I have plans and ideas and confidence that had been taking its time catching up with me.
I picked up a book by one of my favorite online, all-things-mind-bogglingly-fabulous, clothing destination that is Nasty Gal's CEO Sophia Amoruso - '#GIRLBOSS' and it has been making me realize the biggest mistakes that I have been making while trying to build a sold path for my career. And it's no one's fault, it's me and only me that has the power to stop myself of achieving what I want. The biggest mistake that we make is self-pity and nonacceptance of the ugly truth. NO, you actually didn't work that hard this week, because those hours taken to your 'brakes' because you felt like you 'deserved' it were actually you lying to yourself. We keep lying to ourselves and by doing so we begin to believe in our own pathetic lies.
Acceptance is beginning of Success. There will be obstacles, there is no easy road to succeeding, the road will require time, patience, hard work and a lot of coffee. In order to be the best you have to do the best and you cannot do your best if all you do is speak not do.
Love yourself, accept yourself and build your empire one task at a time.
