Or at least I do...or have.
I think I'm getting over it. I have chosen two people to follow, rather than moving oh-so-quickly to absorb as much information as I can, which then morphs into a sort of Lori-on-emotional-speed kind of situation - reading every blog, every newsletter, checking out every "answer".
I have chosen two for now: Tara Reed, and The Abundant Artist. How did I choose these? I am moving forward. I am not "jetting" forward, which has always been my preferred mode, and which has done ... oh ... nothing for me in business or in life. I am taking a step. And then another step. And then another.
And what is it doing for me? I'm watching things happen. My "business" is growing. My artwork and the way that I am producing it is getting more sophisticated. My learning curve is continuing. I'm able to know exactly where I am with my business and my educational level, and I'm okay with being there. In fact I'm thrilled! "Thrilled" beats frustrated and pushing forward, any day of the week and twice on Sunday.
This may not sound like much - at one time I would have snorted at that bit of "proof" and said, "but what's happening?", meaning "how much money am I making???" But it's huge, actually. It's a sign of maturity, of a kind of artistic and spiritual humility in which I'm able to really appreciate my talent, my progress, and my life - no matter what part of the journey I'm on.
What a concept. Shut off the television, the computer, and anyone who doesn't support you. Dream big, and take small steps. It's not my invention, that intention, but it is working big time for me.
