When we first started Natural Hair Community, we knew that it would take some time before it grew into what we ultimately envisioned.
We figured in the beginning we would probably suck a little – relatively speaking. Most new bloggers, business owners, entrepreneurs, drivers, bowlers, and musicians – you name it – all have a learning curve – where you progressively get better over time as you gain more experience and learn more about how to perform the activity.
It’s best that you realize and accept this early within your natural hair journey, because this same concept applies to natural hair also.
In the beginning, your natural hair journey might suck…and it’s going to be extremely frustrating.
You have to understand that this stage within the process of going natural is common for many women.
Failure is not fun, but it’s sometimes a requirement to grow. In order for your natural hair journey to reach its full potential, you might have to fail a few times – learning what works best for your hair and what doesn’t.
Making mistakes during your journey isn’t something that you should be ashamed of, because these mistakes are usually great growth opportunities. Once you’re no longer afraid of making mistakes during your journey, you will learn how to care for your hair much faster.
So, just remember that success is possible for anyone and everyone who is willing to work for it. There are many people who think they want to go natural, but give up at the first sign of possible failure.
They may have originally wanted to go natural, but there is a major different between the “wanting to” do something and “working to” do something. You have to be willing to work towards making your natural hair journey successful. Success is possible for everyone who is willing to work for it.
