Success Is NoT Just Reaching The Top, But How Far You Ran To Get There.
Do remember when you thought about being where you are now? Do you still wonder if you're doing the right thing, or if you made the right choices? Maybe you think you should have went on a different path.
What you should be thinking about is, are you happy? Are you doing what you should to achieve your goal? Will the goal you are striving for make you happy in the long run?
My favorite question, "When all your dreams came true, did it change the world? or only yours?"
I often wondered if pageants were worth it, after not winning after nine tries i was ready to quit. Yet i got up, again, ready to chase my dream again and on my tenth attempt i had finally won. It was all those "failed" attempts I learned the most lessons. "Create Your Own Success" is the message I have shared to many different groups, to give motivation and inspiration to keep going for the goal they long for. Motivation is easy to give, yet difficult to find in a competitive field. That's why I encourage anyone and everyone to work hard with a gracious heart. I remind others how important it is to remember how we felt, when we were ready to give up, and to use that memory to motivate others and remind us to be grateful for the lessons we've learned and hardships we faced while working our own dreams. Creating your own success is about becoming a strong, empowered individual. While also remembering that no matter how lonely your journey may feel, you are never traveling alone.
