Welcome to Episode #9 of my video blog Work You Love! I’m happy you’re here!
This episode examines the question of why it can feel so hard to create and launch into the world something you desperately long for, and helps you determine if you’re potentially heading in the wrong direction.
If you’ve ever asked yourself, “Am I doing something wrong here?” this video will help.
Here’s my take:
The key concepts to understand to determine if you’re heading in the right direction are:
1. Realize that everything we create of meaning, value and import requires WORK. It won’t just fall in your lap. “Build it and they will come” is not a sound business strategy. The real question is, “What does this work ‘feel’ like to you?” If it’s exhausting, debilitating and draining, it’s time to rethink your direction.
2. Overly-attaching to how it has to look and to unrealistic expectations only leads to suffering.
3. Think about “essence vs. form” – have you chosen the right “form” for bringing forward the essence of what you want to create in the world?
