Are You Tired Of Feeling Stuck?
Everyone knows what they do and we all know how we do it but very few of us know our why? So many creatives overlook the importance of knowing their why and injecting that sense of purpose into art and their businesses.
Knowing your why injects passion into your work, it gives you that reason to get up in the morning, to push yourself to do more, to be more, it brings clarity and focus, determination. It empowers us to take risks and push ourselves outside of our comfort zone.
Unlike animals whose drive is simply to survive, humans have a deep desire for more, yet so many of us are in that rut of survival. In this space of survival we become stuck, uninspired, distracted and that silent despair that we are unable to articulate, that lost feeling of not knowing what to do next slowly creeps in.
As creative business owners this feeling of surviving is suicide for our creativity, our spirit and ultimately our businesses.
German philosopher Frederick Nietzsche once said, ‘He who has a why can endure any how.’ Knowing your why is the first step to figuring out how to achieve your goals, it inspires you to take massive action, to find courage and keeps you going when the going gets tough, it’s the part of us that can move our life to a more rewarding path. It’s the fast track route to our personal success.
Success is 80% psychology and 20% action – Tony Robbins
The something more we are looking for as humans, that takes us out of survival, is fulfillment, it’s a human need that leads us to live a life with purpose. Most of us live our life by accident, we live as it happens and adopt the same method to our businesses.
If you’re feeling stuck in your business, your creativity and life and are looking for that something more, rather than fall down a dark spiral of despair and search externally for those clues to what’s next – press pause on the outside world. Listen to what your body is saying to you and take some time to really focus on understanding your why. Once you look within for that inspiration you will reignite your passion and empower your soul to take the steps life is asking you to take.
