You Still Have Time - Rule #5: Be Persistent - It's not how you start, but how you finish.
Updated: Apr 13, 2018
There are women who discover what they’re born to do early in life. Then, there are those who have an inkling and require some time to uncover its fullness. As a result, she may find herself doing different things or operating in industries outside of her passions.
This is OK because we all must start somewhere. I propose, even if she spends 30 years working separate from her desires, it’s never too late for her to walk in the fullness of her future.
Vera Wang spent her early years as a professional figure skater. Then, she was a designer at Ralph Lauren for 15 years. It wasn’t until Vera was in her forties that she evolved into the respected designer and fashion tycoon we know today.
Martha Stewart began as a model and worked on Wall Street prior to venturing into her craft. She started by operating a catering business outside of her basement. From there she went on to launch her first cookbook called "Entertaining" in 1982 at the age of 41.
Prior to the Harry Potter series, J K Rowling was a single mother on welfare. She spent 7 years writing the first Harry Potter book and was turned down 12 times before someone saw its potential. Today, she is one of the highest grossing authors.
The stories of these three women, and so many more, can teach us several valuable lessons.
The one I’d like for you to focus on is Rule #3: Be Persistent. As we’ve learned, most remarkable women do not begin their journey shinning. Instead, they invest within themselves and begin to walk in their luster over time.
