Being a successful skin care professional and spa owner is not easy. But then again, it’s not supposed to be. In fact, being successful in anything should never be easy and if it is, then you’re probably not doing it right. A very good friend and colleague that I highly respect recently forwarded me some excellent insight on this line of thinking from Dan Waldschmidt, a business strategist and author of the blog “Edgy Conversations.” It’s called “19 Hard Things You Need to Do to Be Successful,” and each one serves to motivate you toward being the most successful version of yourself.
I don’t know about you, but I feel motivated! Life is hard. There will be tears and frustration and sadness and loss, guaranteed—but in the end, it’s how you handle yourself in the midst of the madness.
Have you lived your life with integrity so when the hard times come, you have friends, family and colleagues to hold your hand and help carry the load? This is my definition of success.
Every day, you make the choice about how to live your life. Things aren’t always easy and pleasant—in fact, perfect days are very rare—so enjoy your small victories, your loud laughs, and the feeling of love swelling in your heart when these moments happen. And make the choice to do the hard things, because, as Waldschmidt says: “Those are the things that define you.”
Until next time,
