Keep going through adversity. Learn how to accept let-downs as your best motivator.
Three days ago I made this post on social media:
Beyond excited to share that I've been invited to be the featured guest speaker at You Too! Can Succeed, a youth leadership and empowerment workshop on August 14th.
At the end of the workshop, teens will be equipped with proven strategies and techniques that will enable them to be successful in any path they choose.
Know someone who might benefit from an event like this? Send this to them, it could impact their entire future.
Then, a day later after posting about this exciting upcoming speaking gig, I was informed that the event was cancelled. There weren’t enough people registered, so they decided to postpone until September. What a bummer, I had already taken the day off of work and started to spread the news.
While disappointing, this is an even more important message to share; when you’re just starting out, nothing is going to be perfect. You’re going to hear a lot of "no’s" and people will flake on you. That’s all a part of the journey, you have to keep fighting. Even though I’ll admit I was upset, I know that there are even more awesome opportunities just around the corner.
When you’re just starting out, nothing is going to be perfect.
If you feel like all you've been hearing lately is "no," don't give up. Hold onto that fire in you and keep persevering. There will always be another opportunity, and in order to find it, you need to pick your head up and keep moving forward.
