My guided word for the week: PERSEVERANCE
I recently read a quote from Steve Jobs “I am convinced that about half of what separates the successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance.
I believe that to be true. This week the Imperfect Blogging challenge has really helped me understand DONE feels so much better than waiting on perfect. Well to be honest “perfect” to me is really the other P; Procrastinating but not this time. I said I am going to push through and get it done.
This has been a very rewarding week participating in this challenge because I was able to do what I like to call a brain dump and really express my voice, my views, my thoughts and it felt really good.
Have you ever seen the billboards as you drive down the highway. Generally when it is time to replace it with a new billboard they just post another one on top of the old one. While this may be a weird analogy to some this is what this feels like to me but in the reverse.
Over the years, I had someone say Brown Suga Chic should be this or look like that. Heck I ever partnered with someone who told me they don’t get the purpose of Brown Suga Chic and tried to change the entire aesthetic of the brand. After the blank stare, side eye and neck roll. Yeah! that warranted a neck roll. I packed up and headed back to Brown Suga Chic headquarters aka my home office at the time and begin to make this a viable business. This challenge is another step in the direction of peeling back the layers of what someone believes BSC to be and truly under all that let my vision for this shine. It is all about perseverance.
The quote I live by each day is from Walt Disney
“We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.”
