Hello from the Maldives! 🇲🇻 We arrived at the stunning @fsmaldives yesterday and I’m still pinching myself to believe that I’m here.
I debated sharing a personal career story with you because I sometimes find it really hard to read about what other people have achieved. But a lot of times I read exactly what I need to hear to motivate me to keep pushing through, so I hope this can the the latter to you.
About 3 or 4 years ago, I wrote down a list of 10 DREAM brands I wanted to work with one day. I was still working at Google and dreaming of turning my side gig into a full time business. Two of those brands on the list were @qatarairways and @fourseasons.
At the time, it seemed like a distant dream but I was ready to work as hard as I possibly could to make it happen.
Years went by. A few weeks ago when I received an email from both @qatarairways AND @fsmaldives TOGETHER to be on Qatar’s inaugural flight out of San Francisco to go to the Maldives with the Four Seasons… I cried. I was so hard on myself this year and I finally allowed myself to feel proud of how far I’ve come.
Trust me, there’s no such thing as overnight success and most days I question myself if I’m making progress fast enough. But one small step a day can get you further than you think.
All that to say — don’t lose sight of your goals. Ask yourself every morning: what small action can I take today that will get me an inch closer to achieving it? Some days the answer to that question will be just getting through the day and breathing. It’s ok. A little progress every day eventually add up to huge results. If I did it, you can too. You got this 💛
On a separate note — who has the Maldives on their bucket list? Tune into my stories to follow along. Can’t wait to share more 🥰
