This past weekend was absolutely amazing! My blogging/photography coach, Priiincesss invited me to this year’s Werk Pray Slay 2019 Conference. And I feel like I got my entire life this weekend. If you haven’t heard about this conference, you are really missing out! But, if you want to know more about Werk Pray Slay, head on over to Priiincesss.com. There is a recap of every day that the conference took place (3 of those recaps were written by yours truly).
Being at Werk Pray Slay allowed me the opportunity to hear some amazing speakers! Plus, I was in a room full of 200+ women who were there to make connections and figure out how to take their businesses to the next level.
I was also assisting my sistas, Priiincesss and Christina (Owner of Milan Chanel Clothing Boutique) who are literally taking their businesses to the next level as we speak (and I love it).
I love seeing my sisters win, and I love contributing to their wins. However, I also came to the conclusion that I am sleeping on myself! I have the tendency to show up for others, go hard for others, promote others, and not do any of those things for myself. So, the question that I asked myself is why. Why are you so apprehensive to promote your work? Why do you not feel that what you’re doing is good enough to excitedly tell others about. Hmmm…I think I can attribute it to a lack of confidence in what I have to offer. Also, it may be because I have a tendency to half-ass a lot of things that I do. I’ve always gotten by with doing the minimum. It’s the truth.
The next question I had to ask myself is, what would it take to get you (myself) to go hard for yourself? My answer to that question is that I have to make sure that I’m creating things that I’m proud to share; which means that I have to give 100 percent to everything that I’m doing. Y’all, this is the hardest thing for me because it takes so much of my energy and time. I’m honestly afraid of putting all of my energy and time into something, only for it to fail. I’m also afraid of putting my energy and time into something, only for it to be successful. Why is that? Well, I think it’s because I know that I will have to match that energy level every single time. And that’s a lot for me to do!
At this point in my life, I’m tired of starting and stopping things. I really want to see what will happen when I go hard for myself and STAY going hard for myself. So, my 2020 goal is to see what happens when I stay going hard for myself 365 days in a row! I’m going to do it! That’s what Werk Pray Slay 2019 taught me! GO HARD FOR YOURSELF!
