” You are special and unique,live up to your own expectations,not the expectations of others.”
We live in a very changing and uncertain economic climate. Many people fear the unknown; many more are in denial and refuse to change with the times, especially in the beauty profession, because it requires extra effort and sacrifices. Far too many in our profession are always making excuses to fail, failing to take personal responsibility for their own success or failure.
It is so much easier to blame the economy, your employer, or others for your success or failure. It is my wish that the following guideline will help you bring out the power within and renew your passion to succeed personally, professionally, and financially.
Believe in Yourself — no one can stop you from reaching higher levels of excellence within. You and only you have the personal power to make your dreams and goals a reality. Challenge yourself every day towards a program of self-renewal and behavior modification.
You better believe in yourself, because you’re all you’ve got.
Self-confidence — you will always be surrounded by negativity, whether on TV, newspapers, your fellow workers etc. The hardest part at getting to the top of your own success ladder will be because it is so crowded at the bottom.
Studies tell us that only 5% reach the top, and yes it will be lonely; one thing for sure, you will enjoy a happier life and eat better. The best way to gain self-confidence is to associate and learn from positive minded people who are successful.
Read — you have spent the majority of your learning experiences cultivating your artistic skills, now it’s time to learn how to work smarter, not harder. Read books on personal growth and self-improvement. They will help you discover the power within.
Self-Education — a formal education will help you get by, but self-education will make you a fortune. Don’t always trust the system or others for your success and happiness, because they all have their own self interests.
Never accept mediocrity, set higher standards for yourself, the higher your standards, the higher your rewards. Please review my Hairdressers Guide to Excellence Audio C.D click here, let me help you unleash the power within.
Think Outside the Box — don’t always follow the crowd, dare to expand your potential ,by being open minded towards people with different viewpoints, people with more experience than yourself, then form your own opinion.
Positive Attitude — always look for the good in life, in people, and yourself, if you look hard for the positives in your life, you won’t see too many of the negatives. Excellence begins with a positive attitude.
Expect to endure many peaks and valleys while developing your business and career, that’s part of the growing process, learn from your mistakes and move on. You and you alone have the potential to make your dreams a reality. Keep striving for self-improvement every day.
It took me 45 years of to reach the top, yes it was a tough journey, and yes I wanted to quit many times ,but my motivation to keep going was my family. I formed Hairdresser Career Development Systems, so I can help make your journey easier than mine. For more information and educational resources click here.
