Someone told me “Whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right.” So I decided I could and even if I haven’t, you can bet your ass I will.
There are a few things I want to make very clear: first one is that I’m no where close to where I want to be, the second one is I still have a long way left to go, but the third one is that I’m still really damn proud and confident of exactly where I am and that’s okay.
A year ago, I didn’t think I would amount to anything and it wasn’t until I chose to believe differently that I started to become something.
There are few people in this world who really understand what I’ve had to overcome mentally in order to get where I am today and even though I’m inherently irresponsible with my finances, totally not close to being a millionaire, and I have some really bad weeks with recruiting — I still keep my head held up high and I won’t falter in saying that I’m happy with who I’ve become.
Success isn’t measured just by reaching your “end game,” it’s about overcoming the small things that you never thought you could beat out and taking steps every single day towards your goal.
I started this blog for the intentions of sharing my experiences and my thoughts and journey with young women my age just trying to overcome all the obstacles in life that are constantly being thrown at us. However the most important reason for me starting this blog? For the purpose of telling you one thing, you can do hard things.
If there’s one thing that business-to-business sales taught me it’s this: The best doors to sell to are the ones that say “No Soliciting” because the challenges that look the most intimidating are the ones that are all bark and no bite, and of course, the most exciting ones to overcome. Once again, you can do hard things.
