Your creativity results in success of your business
Remember what it was like when you first started your business?
Maybe that moment wasn’t that far back for you, perhaps it was years ago, or maybe you haven’t entirely leaped yet…
Either way, there are a lot of things that nobody tells you about going all-in with your entrepreneurial dreams. And here it is… You can’t control everything, and nothing is ever going to be perfect. It’s going to be a wild ride, unlike anything you’ve ever experienced before.
What’s more, is that you can’t predict everything that could possibly go wrong! During my life in academia, things were pretty well mapped out. Life was a constant flow chart of policies and procedures. Steady, trustworthy, and predictable… I was molded into the person who believed that perfection was the only option.
When I left that academic world for my creative adventure, I was shocked to discover that
perfection not only wasn’t an option; it was also a roadblock. I thought I could control every step on this new pathway. What I didn’t understand was that there was no perfection on a path that had yet to be created!
When you go into business for yourself, you’re responsible for creating your own reality. The other side is that there will be challenges. You will make mistakes — no doubt about it.
But the good news is this…
You’ll create a more profound sense of trust in yourself. Challenges, mistakes, and failures don’t define you, these don’t reflect your worthiness as a business owner, a creative, or a person.
So be ready. Starting a business will challenge you in ways that you never imagined. The good part is that you have a say in how you respond, what you make it mean, and how you learn from it all.
Your experiences create your brand story, and they allow you to create the reality that you truly want! So stay open to possibilities. Meet the challenges. And don’t worry about perfection. You can create something so much better than “perfect!”
