Last year was one of the best years of my life, but it was also one of the hardest.
I remember when I started in my business several years ago, and looking back I truly didn’t know anything about running a business! It was a total career change and I wondered many days if I had what it took to do it. But the thing that I learned over the years is you can’t give up, even when you feel like you have hit rock bottom…things will get better, doors will open and new alliances will be formed.
I used to see all these people on social media who seemed like they had their lives together and I remember thinking that I want to meet her or I would love to meet him. Guess what? I have met many of the people that I desired to meet in the past and I am honored to say that a lot are my friends. How do I know? Because when I call they will take my call; we have built a relationship. FAVOR. None of us are an island; we all need each other to make our dreams come true.
Just a couple of years ago I dreamt of being a speaker to audiences who are interested in what I had to offer. It happened and continues to happen more regularly. I also dreamt of teaching young girls to code apps and create websites. It happened and I am teaching elementary, middle and high school girls to have a future. I have some really lofty dreams for 2016. I know that they can happen because Proverbs 14:23 tells me that, “Hard work always pays off…” (MSG)
I know that it may not seem like you’re not making any progress with your dreams becoming a reality, but trust me when I tell you that you’re making more progress than you can ever imagine.
