Social media has a lot of people jacked up. And I'd be lying if I told you I wasn't one of them. I've been guilty of lurking on other blogger's IG pages and their blogs in an effort to learn their secret to success. When I came on the scene I had absolutely no idea what I was doing, but I just knew that once I got the hang of "it", I would be the bombdiggity. Despite all my thoughts and dreams of blissful triumph; I was met with defeat and failures.
Nobody grows up with goals of being a failure. Yet failure happens, it's impossible to live without it. So instead of looking at it from a 'game over' point of view, let it challenge you to keep moving forward. Failure is not final!

This weekend it came to me that while I've been so focused on the big picture; I'd completely overlooked a few of my smaller snapshots. When I started on this journey of becoming a brand, I hadn't the slightest inkling about how much work it was going to take. I mean, when I'm looking at other influencers, they make it look so easy. But man-o-man, I've been putting in a lot of work.
Stepping back a little, I can see how far I've come. Hold please, I want to pat myself on the back. I'm sure that gave you a little chuckle, but now I want you to do the same. Your goals my not be the same as mines, but if you've been putting in some work, then you take pride in it. When the going gets tough, celebrate your small wins, they count too.

The road to success is paved with hard work, preparation and persistence. And to stay motivated to keep pushing - I speak it! I believe it! I write it! I dream it! I work at it! I do all these things so that the fear of failure won't destroy the zeal in my heart. It's super easy to down play your accomplishments. But it's even easier and worth it to acknowledge your small wins!!!
