You know it is true…what they say! It’s hard to write when you don’t have the motivation. Well, I’m feeling a little motivated today.
They say write a outline out of your life and develop a plan..it’ll be easy! Well they lied it’s not easy. We’re all human and face it no ones perfect. Look at me, I’ve had “writers block” for the last couple of months. It seems like when life gets a little too perfect then BAMMMMMM! In the last year I have came to the conclusion that I need to go a lot harder for myself rather than others. In February 2019 I opened up my first LLC. A online boutique called Calisa’s Closet for women. Most people don’t know this but I failed to meet my goals that first summer the boutique had opened. Most people would still call me successful for what I had accomplished with my store being that it was a new business. I mainly say I failed because I didn’t meet my goal but I was at a 80%. This caused me to grind a little harder. See sometimes life doesn’t give you the flowers until you actually seek to smell them. I didn’t meet my goal because I was focused on ALL the wrong things… Yes, I got a little distracted. It happens I’m human. The moment I noticed how much I was off track … SEE THE GIF DOWN BELOW:
Now, back to this “love” letter I’m writing to myself…
Honestly did you think I was going to let you read my letter today? It hasn’t even been 5 years yet! If you stick with me I promise I’ll let you read it in due time! I will tell you that I am proud of the woman you have grown to be and although you are such a humble woman I encourage you to start giving yourself credit because it’s due. In the first summer of running your boutique in 2019 you failed. In December of 2019, Voyage Houston Magazine featured you on their platform. In June 2020 you had the courage to take your photography career SERIOUS. In September 2020, ShoutoutHTX featured you on their platform. GIRLLLLLLL! You did that!
In this blog I’m sharing steps that you should take to help manifest your goals. I encourage you to start taking yourself seriously. Expose your purpose to yourself and the world. People may think it’s a little weird to write to yourself but the only person that’s going to go the hardest for you is YOU. You have to believe and trust in yourself before you do that with others. You will never stir yourself wrong.
Understand that there will be obstacles that may try to get in the way. It is your job to remain strong through those tough times and realize you have a purpose. You have a goal, and maybe a dream. Pull through and apply pressure.
“ I see it, I want it, I grind hard…until I own it “
These are the important steps to remember: Don’t take these steps for granted.
1) Take chances and get out of your comfort zone.
2) Understand what matters the most and set your priorities straight.
3) Set a Goal and stick with it. Understand if it doesn’t work the first time that it may be a different way to accomplish it and don’t give up.
4) Give yourself a break. Yeah, I know they say long nights and early morning pay off but if you don’t practice any type of self care. YOU WILL GIVE UP AND DRIVE YOURSELF CRAZY! Shit, maybe even the ones around you.
5) This one is always my favorite.. have some fun!
