A few weeks ago, my boyfriend and I attended a TEDx conference in Oxford. It was incredible. Being surrounded by so many like-minded people was life-transforming and brought so much positivity into our lives.
I love everything related to personal growth and development, so watching many interesting speakers talk about various topics, made me inspired and believe in myself and in my mission even more. I really enjoyed the business-like sessions, which made me realise some important points I’ve been missing for years.
It has also inspired me to write about this particular topic today:
I don’t believe in giving up, but after putting so much work and effort into something you care about and people often dismissing it, can be a disappointing and a tiring process. Years and years of hard work and more disappointments rather than seeing some great results can be upsetting.
Luckily, I don’t feel like this often, but when I do, I know I need to take a step back. These occasional setbacks often teach me some valuable lessons, but most importantly, to persevere and believe in my vision even more.
Having big dreams can challenge you in many ways. However, I wouldn’t change it for anything. I’m loving the learning process, the challenges and the blessings that are unfolding right in front of me as a result of taking risks and not giving up.
At TEDx, watching one particular speaker gave me an epiphany. It made me realise something that I’ve been missing for years. I believe that everything happens for a reason and that I was lead to this talk and to this particular speaker who’s profound message open new doors for me. I’m extremely grateful for it.
So, are you a business owner, an artist, creative or someone with a big vision? If so, here is a message for you: ‘Believe in yourself, keep going and persevere. The obstacles you face may delay you, but don’t have to stop you. Face your challenges, learn the lessons, because they are teaching you something important, something that was required and can help you in the future. And most importantly, never give up!’
