Because I was scared SH*TLESS!
It was my biggest fear and I remember driving to the salon where my training was being held at the time thinking: Lia, what the hell did you get yourself into? Now you can’t even back out of it cause all the students are on their way already.
Want to know something else?
I even brought my friend with me to sit in on the class so I can look at her in case I felt like fainting. Yes, I needed mental support. 🙈
But guess what?
None of the students were able to tell.
4 years later, I still get this feeling. Not as bad as before, but I do need some warm-up time to get in my zone until I feel like a natural. My students probably think I’m lying right now. But I’m not kidding!
I knew the value I had to deliver to all of my students is way greater than my fear. And I didn’t want to spend the rest of my life just doing lashes. I love growth and I needed to take it to the next level. But the next level comes with fear, with risk. And the only way around it is THROUGH it.
So if you’re scared to start, if you’re coming up with every excuse in the book of why not to do it, just focus on what’s the outcome. What will you get out of it?
Most regrets people have are not the things they have done, but all of the things they didn’t do.
Love you all!!
Stay strong, and tackle those fears 😘
