Dream Big – Achieve Success
When you decide to pursue a career within the beauty industry, don’t be afraid to dream big. Like you, the top stylists and makeup artists in the world started out as newbie beauty school students. Before they conquered the industry, they all had the same question: How badly do I want to achieve my dreams?
Goal setting isn’t just about daydreaming of your ideal career. Goal setting helps you develop a path to achieve your dream job. Each beauty school graduate may have a different picture of his or her future. For instance, you may dream of one day owning your own salon or barbershop. Another dream could be of opening a spa that uses only all natural and organic products. Stylists may have goals to attract celebrity clientele and work on movie and television sets. Maybe you see yourself traveling the world as a platform artist. Once you know what your goal is, you can make a step-by-step plan on how to get where you want to be.
Achieving the “Impossible”
Many students don’t set goals early on because they are fearful over their futures. However, research has proven that prospective employees with clearly defined goals are 10 times more likely to succeed. Start off by researching your dream career and find out how individuals who are currently working in the field were able to break into the profession. Talk to career specialists as well at your beauty school to get advice on what you need to do to achieve your dream job. Career specialists can advise on job placements and also help you build your network.
Throughout the process, write down goals and even print out images to help you visualize the end result. For instance, if you have a dream of being the go-to hair stylist for brides, spend time cutting out images of inspired bridal hair designs and write down mantras like “I am the best bridal hair stylist in all of Florida.”
Dreams may change as your journey as a stylist continues on. Although you may have started out dreaming of owning your own salon, a new opportunity may open up that turns out to be a better fit. The future is yours—take it.
