“No matter who you are, there is going to be something you want to do that will require you to start from the bottom. That shouldn’t scare you because you’re a Bawse & you thrive on challenges. You don’t feel entitled to success-you feel empowered to earn it.” – Lilly Singh
I know I have a common theme of dreams & freedom & success on this blog AND while that’s important to speak of, it’s also important to take actions on those dreams & make it a plan to succeed in order to have the freedom that I long for.
I understand that I start somewhere as they say to begin your plan for your dreams. I know where to start as far as being a fashion stylist. I have to intern with fashion stylists, be their assistant. I would love to intern at a fashion magazine. I have to work my way up there to be the person I must become… fashion-wise. I know this industry is tough & I like challenges because that’s what is going to make me grow as a person. I believe this is important because it will help me succeed as well as get far from my comfort zones.
In terms of the dance industry, I know it is very competitive and they’re looking for someone who is unique & has a passion for what they love. I’ve always been passionate about dance; it’s what makes me feel alive. I love it so much that it can only be shown in the way I perform. At the same time, I feel like passion is not enough, I would have to present what I can do & what my background is.
When I speak of these things, it’s like it inspires me because I’m prepared to be tested on what I know as a dancer. As a blogger, I need to work on that. I mean I keep up with the fashion trends(but I don’t follow them), fashion news & bloggers so I know what’s happening in the fashion world. However, I need to hone my knowledge in both areas so that not only I know what I am talking about but so it shows what I want to learn as well.
This post is inspired by Lilly Singh’s book, “How to be a Bawse.” I am doing a #90DayChallenge for myself that presents what I have learned from her book.
