I will start by saying... you need to be brave when starting up any type of business or new idea. People will always have eyes to roll or doubts to firmly place in the back of your mind or the slight smirk of knowing that you're idea is just too crazy to execute, or so they think!! What I can say to that...is that if I was that overly concerned about what the judgers were saying.......my life would look really different right now. But without a doubt, there are opinions and people that I have taken very seriously and so words of wisdom at the forefront is....always aspire to learn from someone more knowledgeable, smarter and even braver than you. Success can only come from other people liking what you have on offer. It's crazy to believe you can do it alone, you need people, just the right type!
I now know from experience that doing good things for others comes back to you ten fold. Over the last 3 years I have made it a priority to help others in business, whether it be providing leads to grow their business, free speaking events, offering people the opportunity to show case their talents etc. Giving back is probably one of my favourite things to do; number 1 because it make me feel good to have participated in someone else's success and number 2, because it creates success in everything I do. You get what you give right!!
The Husna Pasha show has now had 3 successful shows, invaluable attention from the media and now a documentary featuring my story of wanting to be Australia's next Ellen!! Big statement and I've been saying and believing it for years, so of course something has to come out of it!!!!
I ask myself, how did the hype around The Husna Pasha Show get so big?
It's simple, because I believed it would, I took action, I stayed committed, I aligned myself with the right people, I embraced my failures and remained humble with the success. I stop when I don't feel good, I trust that if I am true to purpose, then the rest will follow. I believe that being brave is the secret to success and I know that throughout, amongst, at the front, back and middle of my mind is GRATUTUDE. Its the word of the decade and should be imprinted into everyone's mind for ever. I don't measure success as material belongings. I measure success on how I feel every day when I wake up, when I look at my children and husband and feel lucky that I woke up to the crazy noise in the house and the hot coffee Nick has waiting for me when I wake up on a Saturday morning, when I look out onto the balcony and just enjoy the beauty of nature sitting right outside my window reminding me of the simplicity of life that we over complicated for God knows what reason and for who's validation.
I get asked all the time, how do you do so much and always smile. I don't always smile, I have anxiety that I choose to ignore when I'm busy and unafraid to share that with people that care about me when I am having one of those "headache equals brain tumor moments!!' But when I see how lucky I am to live in a country that has proven to be an amazing land of opportunity, then I cant feel anything less than grateful. But the pressure is on....knowing how easy life is when you look at your problems objectively, then it becomes your responsibility to live your life the way you believe it should be.
