Agnes Artych – From Dance Theater to the Runway
Following one’s passion isn’t easy. It takes a lot of dedication and steadfastness to achieve one’s goal. And if adversity begins from one’s own home, it can be an arduous task. Hard work has always been a cornerstone of attaining growth in almost all industries. Anybody who follows the rules, keeps their head down and goes with the flow can have a relatively easy life. To make one’s mark in life, a person has to give a little extra and brace for a lot more.
But before starting a journey that hopefully leads to an eventual accomplishment of life’s goals, a person must pause and take a deep look inside. This deep dive must consider all that a person is, their hopes, and what they can give to achieve. Only after taking stock can a person create a blueprint for their success. Although, this gameplan formulation isn’t that simple. A person must take into account all eventualities. Still, despite all that meticulous planning and factoring in all potential problems, life can throw a wrench into the works to make everything go awry.
Whatever the field one is drawn to, a persistent attitude is a must-have to make a mark for oneself. Consistency can make a career, and procrastination can undo all the work put into making a career. Additionally, it is recommended never to lose sight of the goal, leading to losing one’s way. Anything that proves to be a distraction must also be shunned to stay on track.
If a person is trying to find their way to the top in fashion, all of the qualities mentioned above still stand true. It takes a lot more from an aspiring fashion icon than any other field. Despite the glitz and glamor, the fashion world is a lot tougher for any novice trying to find their way in. The aspiring fashion icon must figure many things out just to get started. For example, they must choose which path they must take, like becoming an editorial model, a glamor model, a runway model, a fitness model, a promotional model, or a swimsuit & lingerie model. And even after they figure out their calling, they must bring a sense of positivity, consistency, a good work ethic, and an open mind to survive and flourish.
