"excerpt from my upcoming guide © "Mindset Shift" by Sasha Holloway:
"Stop playing yourself small due to other people's opinions. You have to stop self-sabotaging yourself and your successes. You're so afraid of being criticized, you end up taking the spineless road. You do this because you want people to "like you". Don't lose yourself trying to please people that could care if you're coming or going. People follow those that are on top, regardless of how they made it there.
Stop apologizing for excellence.
Stop apologizing for being educated and smart.
Stop apologizing and feeling sorry for those that are still stuck.
If you're going to have a movement, make a true and positive movement and spread the right message. Women don't support or celebrate each other enough. I no longer play in circles with people that don't swim in the deep end, but would rather sit in the shade on the shallow end.
You're a business whether small or large; you need to grow it. Stop wasting time being sympathetic to everyone around you and go get your coins. Stop being non-supportive of those you don't think can get you to the top. Just like not all money is good money, neither are the steps some people take to get to the top.
Be yourself and remember you have to make money. So build a business that reflects YOUR hard work and not that of someone else's. Stop living in bubble labeled "reflection" and start traveling down your lane. Below I want you to list steps you're going to take to start being "successful". Your success might be losing ten pounds, but who gives a shit. Just start writing". -- Sasha Holloway
Yah, I'm pretty much the girl that goes in and tells the truth and speaks my mind. I just wish others would be more genuine and do the same when it comes to their business practices in the industries out there.
