For as long as I can remember, all I ever wanted to be was Miss USA. In fact, Miss USA is even listed as my dream job in the year book from my senior year of high school! I feel so incredibly fortunate that every single day I have the opportunity to pursue my wildest dream.
As I prepare for the biggest event of my life, I feel an overwhelming sense of purpose. With each passing day, I work as hard as I can to give myself the absolute best shot at Miss USA. More than ever before, I believe in my purpose. I believe that with a gentle and genuine heart, hard work, humility, integrity, a vision, and inspiration, you can achieve anything you want in this world. I also believe that those are qualities of a leader- which is exactly the kind of woman Miss USA is.
Today marks 24 days until I leave for Miss USA! I wanted to share a few of my personal daily reminders. I go over these 7 mantras every day. They inspire me and fuel my purpose. Maybe they will do the same for you!
Dream itIt all begins in the heart and mind.
Believe itAlthough at times your dream can seem out of reach, you must believe that with determination, the help of others, and hard work……. it can be done.
See itOne of my favorite quotes is, “Your thoughts become your words, your words become your actions, and your actions become your character.” The mind is a powerful. I believe you have to envision your future self accomplishing your goals in order for them to happen. You have to “see” it.
Plan itYou have to sit down and create a game plan. How will you achieve your dream? Set small goals. Every decision made is important. Your short term tasks, multiplied by time, equal long term success. Turn your dream into a goal and do what you need to do to accomplish it.
Work itSuccessful people are the harder workers. Plain and simple. There are no short cuts when it comes to achieving a grand dream.
Enjoy itThere is beauty in the journey. When you get where you want to go, you’ll look back and smile at what it took to get you there. This is something I try and remind myself of everyday. I feel like a sponge, trying to soak up everything I can because I know time is going to fly!I’m excited to share my official Miss USA headshot with you all! I’m so humbled by the fact that I get to represent my beautiful home state at Miss USA. New Mexico has such a huge piece of my heart and I’m beyond grateful to share this experience with you all!
