I hear you. Really I do. Loud and clear. And never more so than when I am doing something associated with my creative business.
So here's how yesterday went (in case you've forgotten). Trying to build Catching Sundust Photography's facebook page (for the second day, sheesh it's complicated....or I'm too old....) and I hear you. Why are you bothering? Who will be interested in this? In your art? In you? Honestly, negativity, I am getting used to you and I ploughed on through. But it is exhausting.
Later on picking up my ipad and cruising through some blogs and pinterest, cosmic balance worked a little magic and I was reminded of the following:
Nobody cares, do it anyway. I love this quote. I can't remember who said it (Henry MaCleod? Seth Godin?) but YES.
This rather awesome article on the Motivation Myth at Kind Over Matter. Do it anyway.
And this article When Things Don't Sell by Tiffany Han. My favourite part is this
The success of your business has nothing to do with your success as a human being.
So, take that negativity. I have respectfully chosen to ignore you. I am creative, I love the creative process. And whilst I would like my creative business to be a success as Tiffany Han points out, its success (or otherwise) is not a reflection of me as a human being.
My choice remains to do it anyway.
Here's the link to Catching Sundust Photography's facebook page. I would love you to take a look and 'like it' if you do. A big thank you to those who already have.
Happy weekend. :)
