7. Rise to the challenge, and then keep rising to it.
At the end of the day, the ones who succeed in a creative field –– even the cutthroat world of fashion –– are the ones who stay the course. You can be the most talented individual in the world and not achieve the level of success you want because you lack the ambition and determination needed to stay in the game.

So keep getting up, dressing up, and showing up. Rise to the challenge, and then keep rising to it, even when no one expects you to. Especially when no one expects you to, or thinks you can. Oh, and wear the red lipstick.
