Note to Self: You've Got This!

Day 3 of 365.

It's a new year and with a new year brings new resolutions, plans, ideas, dreams and so much more. Let this year, on today, January 3, 2018, be the beginning of a new lifestyle and way of doing things.  Go for every dream, passion, and purpose you have on your heart. Don't allow another moment to go by without starting on your personal journey to success and achievement.

The thing is "you've got this!" It's not going to be easy, in fact, it's going to be hard. You may become frustrated, irritated and discouraged, but take that and use it as fuel to get to your destination.  We believe in you and want you to live your best life! What's stopping you? Whose stopping you? And the answer is "you."  Often times, we're our own worst critics and sike ourselves out before even beginning. But know if God places passions, dreams, and desires on your heart, it's meant for you to go after them. However, you will have to put in the work, nothing will be handed or given to you. That's with everything in life though. 

This is the year that we're making some lifestyle changes and want you to join us on this challenge. We're going to put some action behind our words, move in silence, and show results with the work we're putting in. 

They say if you do something consistently, it becomes a habit; healthy habits equal great results.  So create a plan and stick with it, no matter what.  

Here are some tips to making 2018 great...

1. Write it down and create a master plan.

2. Pray on it and put in work.

3. Put yourself out there, network, and get to know people in your desired field.

4. Be consistent and confident (even if you don't feel it.)

5. Stick with it, Stick with it, Stick with it!

You only get one shot at life; there are no do overs or second chances. Cliche but true.

Think of someone who is doing what you want to do, whose in your desired career field, and living their best life. You know what's separating you from them? How they got there? They put in the time, work, and consistency to get there. They worked their asses off and they went for it. Often times we short change ourselves because of fear of the unknown and doubt in our minds. Let all that negativity mind mambo jumbo go, right now!

You have the power and option to be anyone you want to be and do anything you want to do. You just have to go for it. It doesn't matter what others think or say, it only matters what you think of yourself and what you're doing. You have to live for yourself and no one else.

And if no else supports you at first or believes in you, we do at All Things Melanin.  Think of us as your personal hype women, encouraging you along the way. In 2018, we're going to live our best lives. We may cry, we may stumble, we may get frustrated, but we will not fail. We will get up, we will work, we will be consistent, we will be resilient, and we will succeed.

Just know this, if you don't go for it now, you'll work for someone who did. So start now, we genuinely, truly and wholeheartedly believe in you.
