These past few years of my life I’ve spent so much time planning projects in my head and never doing them because I was afraid of what some people would think. If these girls on Instagram are selling tea detox and are somehow making money, then you can build your own empire.
“People who accomplish things rarely sit back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things.” – Leonardo da Vinci
Eventually, if you want your goals to happen, you have to stop living in your head. People suck. And if they want to make fun of you they will, and the last time I checked, those people are just jealous that they didn’t think of it first. Or they’re probably swiping on tinder trying to find a doctor to marry rich. Either way, they don’t matter.
“Opinions are like assholes; everybody’s got one.”

Do you realize how stupid it sounds not doing what you love because the opinion of others bother you? Or because you think you’ll fail? Failing is practically my middle name, but here I am still writing as I’m inspired to teach you how to be a boss-ass-bitch. I’m no master, but I’m sure as hell no beginner. Get embarrassed, make mistakes, kiss your boss. I’m just kidding; don’t do that last part unless he’s the love of your life. You get my point. Life’s too short to give a damn.
Turning your dreams into a reality starts with fear, but do it anyway. Any doubts that you’ll have will all naturally diminish. By doing, you’re learning. With time, comes mastering. Consistency is key. You can’t stop and wonder why it didn’t work out. This shit doesn’t happen overnight. Sorry to burst your bubble but you’re not some miracle worker. Good things take time and a few mishaps happen here and there.
You have to start somewhere. The beauty of creating is that nobody has your originality. It would be kind of boring if we were all the same, don’t you think? Nobody is you. Remember this the next time you’re focusing on other people’s success and not working on your own.
All the goals you’re thinking about, attack them. Go all in or get nothing.
Sit down, get your plans together, then drink some coffee and pretend you know what you’re doing. Because you certainly fucking can and you certainly fucking will.
