Dedicated…to all my ladies who hustle, YOU all inspire me! To my fellow Sistars who are CEO’s, Owners, Founders, and Presidents, YOU inspire me! To all my ladies taking the time to volunteer their skills and talents, and/or interning to learn new skills, YOU inspire me! To all my ladies who live, work and play fabulously – YOU inspire me!
DO.NOT.EVER.COVET what someone else has! Their business, their money, their relationships, their life. You never know how they got to where they got or why their where their at. You just might be surprised, that their story is one you would not even want written for your own life.
Nobody is perfect and therefore nobody’s life is perfect, although some people might believe there’s comes pretty close. Check yourself – There is a difference between being perfect and being perfect for you. Don’t get the two confused because at the end of the day, like I said, nothing and no one is ever really perfect.
Success is measured not only by a person’s status in life, but also to me by the character of the person and how successful he or she has been in helping others. The highs, the lows, and the in-between -they will all come! It’s a part of the life that we live. Sometimes the towel gets dirty, worn out and weighed down by blood sweat, and tears. Sometimes it’s okay to set it down, but never throw down your towel. Put it in the wash, throw in a bounty fresh sheet, say a prayer and voila it’s ready to go again. Looking and smelling so fresh and so clean. Don’t’ ever throw down your towel.
Remember… your towel is not meant to carry your burdens, and that’s why it needs a good wash and dry- and hey, it’s normal to feel the need to want to throw it down. But, remember, you serve a God who’s an ever lasting clean and you wont ever need to throw him down.
Whether time, money or energy, whether haters, nay-sayers and/or pessimists, whether pain, suffering or sorrow. Whether sickness or disease, poor credit or even bankruptcy – it’s okay…you got this! It takes money to make money, plant your seed, pray on it and it will grow. Haters, pessimist and nay-sayers never win; let them talk, they are the fuel for your flight. Time is not even yours, so dont worry about it. And remember you serve a God who can stop, pause, rewind or fast forward time. Energy, if your ever feeling down or like ur losing energy, get plugged into God, he is the ultimate power source. He’s also a doctor, lawyer, preacher, teacher, banker, credit repairer and the list goes on…
So don’t throw in the towel!
If you need to wash it out, sweat it out, wash it out, then cry it out and wash it out and sweat it out…do what you gotta do! Its okay…life is hard, hustling legitimately is even harder, and for those who choose to remain non-complacent life is even hardest. The person climbing to the top of the ladder is putting in a lot more work then the person chilling, sitting on the bottom step of the ladder.
You are not always going to get it right, and it isn’t always easy. Especially where business is concerned you gotta PUSH!
You are birthing a vision, greatness, your own company that you will put your blood, sweat and tears into. It will piss you off, it will make you laugh, it will cause you pain it will cause you joy. It may also cause you debt, migraines and possibly your health. But Don’t Throw down the towel…Do not put an abortion on your dreams and your future success. You’ve got to PUSH!
PUSH, PUSH, PUSH…AND EXHALE…PUSH, PUSH, PUSH, AND EXHALE…
Birth your vision ladies! Carry and nurture it for a while and make sure that it is what you really want to do, do your research and your development. Spend your energy, time and money to prepare. Like the slogan for my biz says, “Business nutrients to give your business life” – take this seriously. What nutrients are putting into your business to help it to grow?
When it is time, it is time! YOU will know…and maybe it will hit you unexpectedly, but it will be time and you will have no choice but to push, push, push, and push…birth that awesomeness! Take time to choose a name that’s important to your vision and what you want your brand to represent and write it on that certificate! That business belongs to you; it’s your baby.
Congratulations…You have just conceived your hopes, your dreams, your vision…your business
It is in you!! For my ladies who have pushed and pushed, and snatched the towel back up before letting it hit the ground. Keep on keeping on, I’m so proud of you! Don’t throw down your towel! For my ladies who struggle a little bit, remember, if this is really what you want to do, and this is the vision you birthed, don’t give up. You don’t give up on your children – so don’t’ give up on your vision, your business, your future success. Work with it, discipline it, love it, – spend even more time, energy, and money, add the best nutrients you can give it and watch it flourish and grow.
You can always take the towel to laundry, but never throw it down! PUSH!!!!!! EXHALE!!! PUSH!!!! EXHALE!!!! PUSH!!!! AND PUSH!!!!!!
To my ladies living soulfully, beautifully and naturally
