You never know how strong you are until you push yourself to be strong beyond your comfort zone. You never know how creative you are until you allow yourself to be creative. You never know how needed you are until you extend a hand to someone else. You never know how fearless you are until you are no longer fearful. Do you get where I’m going here?
Making a shift to follow your passions in hopes that it will lead you to your destiny and the life you have envisioned for yourself takes GUTS. When I say guts, I am speaking of faith, sacrifice, and will power. Here I am, a young adult with a comfortable paying job, who just graduated with a degree, yet I know there’s something more for me to achieve and align myself with. I wont go into details about how I have gotten to this point in my life on this post, as it would make this blog post extremely long. However, I always welcome the opportunity to meet and chat with new people who are likeminded about the importance of personal growth. Don’t be a stranger! Email me: email@example.com
One of my favorite quotes from Oprah is, “pleasure is energy reciprocated”. This quote to me means in order to gain or obtain something you desire, you have to put attention towards it. Even when the vision doesn’t seem clear or obtainable, you continue to position your attention on whatever your desires are. This is exactly what I have done and continue to do with interior design, architecture, and my company. I have immersed myself into the world of design by taking courses, continuous reading and blogging, meeting other designers, and tapping into my own gift of designing. This is WHY I BELIEVE IN ME.
From this point on, this post may not be for you and solely for me, but I am compelled to write it. There will come a time when we are connected from the right source, with the right people, at the right place, at the right time that will thrust us forward when we are ready. I often have to remind myself that what I have to offer as a designer is different from any other designer out there and the time will come when I am able to showcase it. That means I can’t be discouraged by the beginning stages of entrepreneurship (which can be very discouraging at times). There is power in thoughts, which is why this post is titled Why I Believe In Me. What you think about your situation will be the direct outcome of your situation. Regardless of the many late nights business planning, studying design techniques and trends, and creating ways to use my business to be philanthropic; I believe that it will all pay off for me and align me with my life’s purpose. Just like what you consistently put your attention to will pay off for you too! I believe it for you.
I say all of this to say; believe in those goals, visions, and dreams. They were given to you for a purpose. Be encouraged that in perfect timing your passions will lead you towards your destiny and connect you with individuals you could have never imagined, and allow you to impact lives far beyond what the human mind could think. And when you get to a point where it “seems” like failure has knocked you down, get back up and whisper to yourself…. I BELIEVE IN ME.
