Don’t Let Someone Tell You That You Can’t Do Something…

Let’s just say that I like a challenge…

I entered professional employment full of ambition and with fire in the belly…

I had BIG dreams and aspirations and thought I could achieve anything I put my mind to…

I was a high achiever and exceeded expectations in my roles. However, I was being overlooked and knocked back for opportunities and promotions…

I felt that I had hit the glass ceiling…

I was either too young, or didn’t have enough experience, or the right skills or qualifications, or a woman. The list of reasons goes on…

Frustrated that the job was sucking the life out of me and that no one was willing to take a risk and give me a go, I decided to take matters into my own hands…

I was over the status quo, the grey and black suits and the uninspiring people around me.

I sought out mentors who were going to challenge me and invested in numerous business programs over the years…

Finally I took the leap, quit my job and started my own business…and the rest was history or was it?

What I realised was that the naysayers didn’t go away….”What do you know about business?” and “You can’t run a business” I would hear.

The gift in this is that there are always going to be people who tell you that you can’t do it OR that you’re not good enough, OR you don’t have the right skills…

Do whatever it takes to change your thinking and your reality, whether it be:

Surrounding yourself with people who inspire and champion YOU.

Investing in YOU and your education.

Stepping into your power.

Not listening to naysayers and proving them wrong.

Daring to be all you can be.

Taking small and consistent steps towards your dreams.

Believing in YOU even if others don’t! Because you’re worth it!
