Live, love, and go for what I know should be mine…Here are the steps:
1.) To be more aggressive and go for what I know can be mine. I had it in me, but never knew it was OK to go full force with what I wanted.
2.) To live my dream. I do that now, but realized later in life to not care what others thought and go ahead and make my dreams possible.
3.) To love myself as I am and love my inner intelligence as well. The modeling industry has a lot of beautiful people that surprisingly feel extremely insecure. Thanks to a clear mirror, true wisdom, and dual bachelors degrees in business, which I earned in spite of modeling agents telling me to “quit school” if I “want to succeed” in the industry, I am first and foremost an entrepreneur now, yet I boldly model for my own skincare line now, as I look and feel better in my 40s than I ever did in my 20s.
….What I wish I knew when I was younger…
Here are some quotes that I made, inspired by what I learned throughout the years in both modeling and business:
“Natural beauty is a gift, but intelligence is true power. God gave us both and we should be confident enough to recognize them.”
“I believe in the power and beauty of mind, body, and spirit. The aromatic properties derived from our organic oils are as spiritually therapeutic as they are cosmetically replenishing.”
“I don’t sit. I don’t quit. I strive for what I believe in because I believe in what I strive for.”
“Don’t fear the fight. Fight the fear. This can be applied to all aspects of your live, both business and personal.”
“Belief is only the beginning…”
“We all possess the magical ability to enhance our lives and make whatever we wish for to come true. Just like beauty is in the eye of the beholder, magic is in the mind of the believer.”
“Beauty that comes naturally, is the most natural beauty of all…”
“Changing your world starts within…”
The secret to success and happiness is not looking for a secret…It’s being confident and happy with who you are and whatever it is that you wish to do in life.
Life is about doing, with no restrictions, loving, with no conditions, and living, with no regrets. There was a time once when I thought I had nothing, but what I really had was nothing to lose. And now I realize that I am truly blessed, because I truly have it all.
Just when you think you know it all, you learn more. Just like beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, success in the mind of the believer. My life is filled with love, happiness, and success. And that is how it should be for everyone.
