What would you do if you knew you would never fail?
I have so many answers to that question. I feel so driven to make an impact. Whether it be helping artisans and families with Noonday. Or creating a space where people who are struggling with mental health can feel safe to talk. Or empowering other women and helping them build up their businesses. I have so many ideas. But, honestly, not enough courage nor time to do most of them.
Let me just say this, the first step is having the courage. Make that choice. Decide what you want to do and go for it. Even if there is a chance you might fail. Because you never know. What if you don’t take that chance and it would have been everything you dreamed of?
Failure is a part of life. Noonday is not my first business. This blog is not my first blog. I have failed many times at endeavors I was extremely passionate about. Sometimes the timing is wrong. Sometimes the execution is wrong. You learn and try again. You grow. You do better.
“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” – Winston S. Churchill
There are no real secrets to success. Just hard work. You have to be willing to put in the effort and work. It takes time to be successful. Patience. Courage. Mindfulness.
A bit of advice – if you are following social media accounts that make you feel discouraged because they are in a place that you are not…stop following them. Surround yourself in life and online with those that encourage you, lift you up, and make you feel confident in what you are doing.
