Who said it’ll be Easy? Don’t give up!

You must have probably heard or read about this for the umpteenth time but hey, a lot of people out there are still wondering if it’s safe to pursue or chase their dreams. I used to be one of such people till I manned up and said to myself, “It doesn’t matter if I fail, after all there are 365 days in a year. If plan A doesn’t work, Plan B MUST definitely work”.  This became my mantra for a year till I created a new one,” if you work really hard and are kind, Amazing things will happen” . One thing I have learnt in the initial stages of my business and in my career is that it doesn’t matter who you are or your career status, we all worry about achieving our greatest goals and also worry that we don’t have what it takes to overcome the challenges in front of us.  Today, I would like to share a list that I found on Kathy Romeros blog which I read every morning before I step out:

  • It’s not where you are today, but where you see yourself that matters. Stay focused on your end-goal and don’t forget the big picture
  • There is no such thing as a true and lasting “overnight success”. No great thing is created suddenly. Life is a one-day-at-a-time kind of thing
  • If you don’t dream, you give up on yourself before even trying
  • Nobody said it would be easy. If it were easy, everyone would do it
  • You are worth the effort and time and sacrifices
  • Hardships tend to occur right before success
  • You knew there would be obstacles; now know you can overcome them gracefully
  • If you give up on yourself everyone else will, too
  • Fear will cloud your mind if you allow it to
  • Failure is not an option; it’s a stepping-stone
  • You will become what you expect yourself to be
  • If you do nothing, you change nothing
  • There are people who believe in you


Truth be told I encountered numerous failures when I  started Urban Lilac. I However didn’t let my failure deter me.  I learnt my lessons and overcame all those obstacles gracefully. Today I am still dreaming of wonderful things for Urban Lilac. I don’t think I will ever stop chasing my dreams.

I hope someone gets inspired today 🙂
