"Do one thing every day that scares you." - Eleanor Roosevelt
These words hold a lot of power. This simple little sentence can be life changing.
The truth is that it can be very easy to hide away and take the cautious, more predictable road. However, what good really comes from the comforts of life? How do you grow if you don't reach?
Taking a leap of faith or making a decision that goes against the norm may sound daunting. However, what lies on the other side may be a new world of opportunities and success.
To get a little personal for a minute, I have had to take a lot of "leaps of faith" the last couple of years. Looking back, I find myself being astonished at the strength, courage and gratitude those "leaps of faith" brought into my life. Had I not taken those leaps of faith I would not know myself as I do now. These leaps helped me to become a person who lives life the way I am meant to. They also helped me to discover who I can be.
Life is a journey. It was never meant to be easy or comfortable all the time.
Taking a big leap of faith helped me to be able to plan and execute a really big event (Midwest Beauty Summit) that I never really imagined I could do. It also helped me to overcome a tragic and traumatizing situation at the same time we were planning that huge event. It is never going to get easier. What it takes is guts! Do you have the inner want to? Do you have enough want-to?
The "leap of faith" helps you to find a belief in yourself that may be untapped. Let's face it, we can all believe in ourselves a little more. Right??!
Whether you are in beauty school or looking for a new path in the beauty industry, now is the very best time to leap with faith! Follow your dreams, dream big and believe bigger Girl! You've got this. You can do it and you will do it.
