We Need Your Work
I want you to go back to a time when you helped someone. It doesn't have to be a client but that helps too.
See this person in your mind and FEEL what it was like to help them.
Think about the relief on their face, the excitement when they have an a-ha or discover something new about themselves for the first time.
Put yourself back to that place when you felt completely in your element and deeply connected to the work you are doing.
People need your work.
Your work truly matters.
It's easy to lose track of this when you are in the middle of everything. You are working your butt off and nothing seems to be coming together. You don't feel like you ever have enough or can do enough and nothing seems to be going your way.
It's easy to constantly ask yourself if this is the right thing and if you are the right person to do this.
I'm here to remind you that people need your work and you must keep going.
The journey is difficult and there is a lot in the way...I won't lie to you about that, but people NEED you.
Just go back to a time when you helped that one person and changed everything for them in that moment JUST by doing what feels good for you.
You know the work you do is life-changing and amazing. .You just have to do it.
You just have to fight for it.
Don't focus on the big picture. Don't obsess about what has happened or what will happen. Be in the now and whenever you do something, try something or create something new keep this in mind:
People need my work
Whenever you want to give up and do something else, remember the person and all of the other people you've helped along the way and just take that next big step.
One step at a time.
You can do this. I believe in you.
