I went from failure to Forbes featured in a week last September. FORBES.
It was a dream come true that I have been working toward, manifesting, and dreaming of for years.
But the thing is…
A week before I found out this article was going to drop, I was in one of the lowest places I’ve been in a while.
I was burnt out, crying pretty much every day, and started up therapy sessions again. (Not that therapy is a bad thing, but it was proof I wasn’t taking care of myself for a while.)
I was feeling overwhelmed, like a failure, like I doubted my whole career and future.
Then all of a sudden…
I found out this Forbes article was dropping.
My Instagram following doubled in 2 weeks.
I started getting gifting offers from designer brands.
Years of unnoticed work, overwhelm, growing pains as a woman in business, and countless moments of whispering “can I do this?” accumulated into all these measures of success.
I went from feeling like a failure to being featured in Forbes – plus everything that came with that – in the space of a week. Remember, every “overnight success” went unnoticed for a decade.
If you’re doubting yourself, your dreams, or your future, remember every woman who has done something great has doubted herself too. If you are questioning yourself because your goals are taking a long time to come to fruition, remember that every “overnight success” went unnoticed for a decade.
You might be a week away from a confirming sign that you’re on the right path.
Keep going. 🤍
