'Even a broken clock is right twice a day...'
Don't sell yourself short. Sometimes things don't seem to go the way we want them to, but it's important to remember that even when things feel broken, disjointed, or downright disappointing, there can still be ways to find a positive edge - even if it is a bit silly and brief.
Now I am all about breaking up any stressful or 'oh-this-is-all-impossible' moods whenever I can with whatever positivity I can muster because sometimes as a small business owner it can feel like soooo much effort can yield such tiny results. However, I continue to remind myself that real growth is incremental.
I find that it helps to look at other areas of one's life where teeny tiny baby steps and slow growth have ultimately produced solid and definable results. When I find myself feeling despondent about the rate of growth for my small business, I honestly remind myself of my fitness journey and how after 5 years of taking it seriously I'm now in the best health of my life, or (as silly as it sounds) my dreadlocks, which have been growing for almost a decade and half and how long it took them to come to their full potential.
I would love to hear about how any other creatives handle patience with incremental growth. Or tell me about something you've been patiently working on for a long time and is now coming to fruition. Yay! Let's inspire each other with positivity and growth!
