HOW TO JUMP START YOUR MODELING AND FASHION CAREER
BELIEVE IN YOURSELF
Whether it’s modeling, blogging, designing or influencing, YOU HAVE TO BELIEVE IN YOURSELF. You have to establish a sense of confidence but not arrogance. Believing in yourself allows the opportunity to persevere and achieve what you could possibly give up on. If you don’t believe in yourself, people will notice, and it will be hard for them to believe in you. You have to be okay with failing, as long as you gave it your all. If your modeling, you have to believe that you’re beautiful and nothing defines beauty but the beholder. Someone is looking for those few extra pounds to shoot, that small gap in your tooth that makes you feel insecure and even that height that height that's under 5’6 because you are beautiful!
If you’re designing or writing, you have to be content with outing all of your creativity into your craft. Focus less on what your competitors are doing and use your creativity to take your talents to the next level. The most creative people are those who followed their own paths and not others. Your work is art and you’re creative for a reason. If a route you’re currently taking continues to end in road blocks, try different route, but NEVER surrender to failure.
Being outgoing and social is one of the most difficult things to do, especially if you struggle with social anxiety or are used to isolating yourself. Just remember, your talents will never be discovered, if you don’t exploit them! Start by attending mixers, joining meet-up groups with those similar to yourself, FB groups with people similar to yourself and taking on the randomness of attending venues that spontaneously. Study shows that most opportunities are developed from building professional relationships with likeminded people. Always remember, your talents are meant to share with the world so unfold your potential!
