Here’s what she had to say about the relationship between self-love and success.
What role do you think self-love plays in success?
Bershan: Everything is self-love. If you don’t love yourself, then nothing else happens. If you don’t love yourself, you never get what you deserve in your career, your relationship or your life. Before you can have a business, you have to start at home. My goal is to teach women how to love themselves again.
Share a few tips on how women can increase their self-love through self-care.
Treat yourself once a week. Whether it’s going to get a manicure, having a great dinner, whatever. You have to take time to yourself to destress and spend time alone. In addition, give yourself at least 10 minutes to yourself each morning– this is YOUR time dedicated to yourself. This is the perfect way to start your day with love and care. Last, but not least– be honest with yourself. Don’t pretend like you’re happy when you’re not. Be honest with how you’re feeling and what you’re experiencing.
Can you share a final secret for success?
In order to be successful, you have to:
1. Be open. You never know how an opportunity will present itself
2. You have to have the ability to listen.
3. You have to learn to trust your gut.
