Finding your passion is about listening to the little voice in your head. Following the signs from the universe. Paying attention to your gut. I’ve been pretty lucky to understand this through out my life. Of course, I’ve had guidance but that is a part of the process to finding your passion. Just because you haven’t peaked in your passion yet doesn’t mean it’s not underway. Take a look back through the years of your career and think of how many moments and people have contributed to your journey. Think about the doors that were closed in your face, the ones that were opened. The amount of times you were ignored or fully embraced. Did any of those moments validate your passion? Did they make you go harder? Did you give up? This is a bit cliché but success doesn’t happen over night. Success is a collective of all you have put into your passion.
Everyone’s idea of success is different. In this industry, we have so many paths we can take: from educator to platform artist, editorial stylist to behind the chair, salon owner, assistant, fashion stylist, makeup artist, state board employee; the list of possibilities is endless. Understanding what and who you want to be in this industry is major. Having a thick skin and not giving up will get you pretty far but walking in your passion will get you further. Focus on what you are really amazing at the rest will come! Let your gift guide you. Become open to new, uncomfortable experiences because they are filled with wisdom and lessons. The only way to truly walk in your passion is to be still, listen and get to work!
“The key is giving your all to receive all in return,” this statement is unique because you are unique; there is no other individual in the world like you. No one! Only you can hear that little voice in your head or listen to your gut. That’s what makes us all individuals. We all have a different walk but together we are an intricate collection combining all of our passion, creativity, love, wisdom and many challenges with hopes to inspire the next lot of creatives.
