The thing about failure is, that it’s inevitable. We all fail from time to time. Our failure could be associated with exams, a relationship, a business start-up… essentially anything. Many A-Level & GCSE students received their grades earlier this month and didn’t do as well as they would’ve liked (and I was one of them). I know how terrible it feels to fail & sometimes to fail multiple times. It can really wear us down.
But I want to let you know that failure is actually good for you. Now I know you must have read lots of articles online about how to turn your failure into motivation. And it does sound cliché but… it’s possible.
Role models have a great influence on our lives. Our role models may change as we navigate our way through our lives but they always have an incredible impact on us. Not only do they play a great role in shaping our behaviours & our attitude towards life, they motivate us to reach our full potential!
Take a moment to ponder over who your role models are. They could be your parents, celebrities, influential people (whether in the present or the past)… in essence they can be anybody who you look up to!
Here at The Like Me CIC, our team is thrilled to share our own role models:
Since we understand the importance of role models, we are conducting a workshop session – Bring Your Own Role Model– on Thursday 26th August as part of our The Girls Like Me Summer Camp. Any teen girl aged 13-17 can come along to this FREE community event. We will be sharing who our role models are with each other on Thursday afternoon. To find out more information about our Summer Camp, visit: https://buff.ly/2VzDR28
Who are your very own role models? Feel free to let us know in the comment section below!
“I’ve got a bush on my head. Why is my hair so frizzy?”
“I’m so short!”
“I’m way too tall!”
– Have these thoughts ever come across your mind? Do you feel like every time you’re choosing outfits or shopping, you’re about to have a breakdown? Do you cancel things last minute because you feel that you don’t fit well into your clothes?
Chances are that you might be suffering from body image issues. A very large percentage of girls & women suffer from body image issues and feel dissatisfied with their bodies. These issues are cultivated in the society that we live in. Growing up, we’re often told that we’re either too “skinny“, too “fat“, too “big” and the list goes on!
The notion that we’re not enough is instilled in us either through people’s comments or through the social media content that we consume. In a day & age, where filters are prevalent and most pictures on social media get photoshopped, it becomes easy for us to compare ourselves to the beauty standards set by celebrities.
The Summer holidays have come around and you’re finally free from the piles of work that you had to do! You’re planning to finally binge-watch your favourite series on Netflix. With a packet of crisps and a can of coke, you’re all set to go! But… wait a second. While that is great, I feel like there’s more to your summer (and your life).
Take a moment to think about your favourite things to do. Whether it be:
the list is endless! Whatever it is that makes you feel energetic, I want you to take some time out for it this summer. I want you to take some time out for yourself this summer. Join a club related to your passion. You’ll find that not only will you meet new people but you’ll also improve your skills. And as they say the more you master a skill, the more confident you become in yourself.
It could be very well be that you don’t have a particular hobby and trust me, that too is fine. Try out different things to find out what you’re interested in or maybe volunteer for a cause you’d like to support. I mean, why not? – By being a source of help for somebody else, you’ll find yourself becoming more humble and confident. And yes, both these things are not contradictory.
Another thing you could do this summer is travelling. Has Covid spoiled your plans? Tough luck! There are plenty of beautiful places to see all around you. Try googling some places you’d like to visit in your local area and venture out! Live life, have fun!
Why not begin reading? This summer is a good time to pick up a book. Delve into books that interest you. Alternatively, you could begin reading fiction such as Twilight or Harry Potter. Not only do books stimulate your imagination but there’s so much that you can learn from them. They always leave you more knowledgeable and therefore, more confident!
Personally, I think of time as a blank canvas. I’ve got all sorts of colours on my palette and a paintbrush in hand. It’s up to me which colours I want to choose and how I want to use them to create my very own painting. Similarly, you’ve got this summer and lots of opportunities out there. It’s up to you what you want to take up and how you want to live your summer!
Our mission is to empower 1000 people to ‘climb their mountain’ so that they break down their barriers and reclaim their power. Join us. For more details about how we can help you to climb your mountain – check out our free events here.
“Failure is not the opposite of success, it is part of success.” – Unknown
This past week England has experienced a lot of emotions, with Frank Skinners ‘It’s coming home’ blaring all round, creating a sense of community and then the week coming to a head with the Euro 2020 penalties not going quite the way we hoped; causing a catastrophic chain reaction.
Funnily enough, some fans must be reminded that Sancho, Saka and Rashford are young men, trying and failing like the rest of us. Their effort was so admirable and knowing they will get back up there and try again is inspiring!

Feel Fab Naturally – Philippa Taylor
Wishing you had more vitality? Check out our natural, clinically proven products to help you feel more like you again and flip the switch back on for your own antioxidant Production.
A thick, velvety moisturising cream containing nourishing aloe, jojoba oil, collagen and elastin to leave skin feeling soft and supple. This lotion moisturises your face, hands and body whilst maintaining the skin’s natural pH balance. Its easy-to-absorb formula also makes a great base for makeup application.
N.B. Suitable for people prone to dry skin conditions.
Forever Aloe Scrub
Unlike some scrubs that use plastic microbeads, we use microspheres of jojoba which roll over your skin gently. As they roll, they pick up the dead skin cells that clog up pores and cause skin to look dull. Gentle enough for everyday use for your face or body, the natural ingredients exfoliate and reveal healthy-looking skin.
