I realized this past month that I've been picking and choosing which of my ideas to develop and share based on whether or not I feel they have the potential to be that "big ticket item" that creates a magical breakthrough and catapults me to the next level in Business™.
At some point in the past years, I absorbed the belief that with just one more effort, one more class, one more Aha! moment, I'd create something that would blow the doors to my business wide open, I'd magically attract all the new customers I needed, and all would be well.
And, I know this hope/belief is easy to absorb in the entrepreneurial world. It's far sexier to advertise "Breakthrough!" than "Slow'n'Steady Progress."
In the process of holding out for my own breakthrough, I set aside a lot of smaller jewelry offerings and intuitive creations that I pre-judged wouldn't be welcomed in a huge way. Or even a moderate way! And now I realize that withholding any creative idea is the same as denying someone the medicine they truly need.
Because why would the idea be channeled to me in the first place, if it wasn't needed by someone in the material world?
So now I'm approaching my offerings, and creations, and my entire structure with new eyes. For the first time in years, I'm excited to sit down and free-form create, and then share what I'm developing! Because whether it reaches one person, or 5, or 100, they need what I'm doing, and I'm here to help.
It's a huge relief, giving myself permission to work on things for the sake of seeing the creation through to completion, instead of for the sake of whether or not it will "sell."
And, in a good way, it feels a little rebellious... entrepreneurs are, after all, supposed to chase that Big Ticket Dream. So I'm giving myself permission to STOP chasing, for the rest of the year, or maybe longer. Right now I'm focusing on being the best I can be, for the people who need me.
