I am a young woman. 30 years old to be exact. I have worked in dental management ever since I graduated high school. A couple of years ago I decided to go back to school to pursue my dream of entrepreneurship as a hairstylist. I've always kept a nice hair style and a pretty face and worked in the salon as an assistant on the weekends since 15.
In hair school I proved top of my class with a full client list everyday. Somehow when I graduated the real world suddenly intimidated me because I felt I wasn't as good as any of the people I wanted to be like. After a year I quit hair and returned to dentistry. It was safe. I knew it thoroughly and there were no risks. I was confident in this arena. Fear had chased me out of my dream (not to mention lack of patience) and forced me into a normal mundane life. I found myself so disgusted with the way life was passing me by with such a repetitive routine.
One night I couldn't sleep. I was sick and tired of being sick and tired. I got up and began searching my resources to pull myself out of a whole of mediocricy. No I still havent become an L.A.-like celebrity stylist but I'm educating myself more and more. I've surrounded myself with people who are confident and they have help me gain my confidence in doing what ever I have to do to avoid settling.
Everyday I wake up feel so driven to use my dreams as wings and fly! I know longer really feel afraid of failure. Maybe because the failure was quitting to begin with and I'd already experienced that. Two things I know now: 1) "Nothing beats a failure but a try" and 2) "Every setback is a setup for a come back. Be fearless, you're one decision from making it, the decision to try.
