Remember that failure is an event, not a person
~ Zig Ziglar
One of my favourite bloggers/inspirational people is Chris Brogan and when I read this quote I was reminded of something I read when I thought I was not making progress as I wanted too. Chris said if things are not going as you want it too, re-evaluate what you are doing. Make a new goal. I didn’t change my goal, but I decided to change my approach. I decided to make my goal more visual.
His second piece of advice was, help others. I do that indirectly with my blogging. Sure, not in a RL way, but the other day someone on my timeline on Facebook commented that bloggers get angry that they are being “copied” by other people. It made me laugh out loud, because what is the point of being a fashion blogger then? Isn’t it so that you can show people a style for them to go buy the product and wear it too? If I see someone copy me, I feel flattered. Someone actually liked the way I styled enough to want to look exactly like me. It would make me feel so accomplished. I will always encourage people and help them where I can. Even if it sometimes mean that they turn out to be a more accomplished blogger! I love seeing people happy.
Then his last piece of advice, take action every day! Do something every day to achieve your goal. My goal is huge passion, so this is the easy part. Learning a new skill, looking for something different, looking for inspiration.
So if at first you don’t succeed.. remember, that failure is an event, not a person.
