Just recently got back from a fantastic marketing conference in Orlando, FL that I attended with Bob Ostrom, Aleloop, Mark Simon and a few other good friends. It was great getting out and meeting so many very bright, creative, action oriented people. Some of which we’ll be working together with in the coming months.
Clarity and Focus
I came away from this event with a ton of notes. But the over-riding message for me the first day was that of creating ‘clarity’ and ‘focus’. Not just on the goals you want to accomplish and the specific actions necessary to fulfill them. But more importantly, identifying the real reasons why you possibly are struggling more than you should in your art business. Let’s face it, we all get hung up on personal issues. I allow fears and uncertainty dictate my actions far more than I would like to admit. Let’s step into our full creative potential.
Let’s Stop BS’ing Ourselves
Here are three powerful questions that will help you get clear on why you may not be as busy, or earning the money you want to make, or not working with clients and on projects that really inspire you and light you up inside. Don’t allow self-doubt, fear, mindset or whatever, hold you back from what you really want to achieve. Give these some deep thought and be honest with yourself. It’s usually not what you initially think they are.
- What road blocks have held you back from achieving your goals in the past?
- What changes are you resisting most in your business?
- What excuses have you gotten in the habit of using to justify your lack of progress? Are the excuses really valid?
The decision to make progress in your business starts with the decision to be honest with yourself about what’s really going on.
So how’d the first day go? Watch the video to find out.
Any brave souls willing to share the answers to some of the questions above? As usual we welcome your thoughts and opinions.
