Patience truly is a virtue. It is a constant battle for me. I know what you're thinking. How can you build a business in a field where you work with customers and lack patience. I do not mean this in the way you might have understood it. I am impatient when it comes to my progress.
I find myself wanting things to happen on my schedule. Things will only happen when they are suppose to. Progress cannot be rushed. I usually go through this anxiousness related to me feeling like I should be doing more. Life has subtle way of reminding me that I am accomplishing things at the pace it is suppose to happen.
My recent goals were to complete a boudoir shoot and a pin up shoot. It didn't happen on my time frame but I accomplished my goals. I am currently restructuring my business in an attempt to draw more people in. I know I will repeat the process mentioned above. It is a cyclical behavior for me. I guess it may just be a part of my process.
Your journey is your unique journey. Things will happen as they are suppose to. Embrace it. Try not to get too high or too low. Understand that as long as you put the work in you will see progression. Reflect on previous work and acknowledge how far you have come. Below are two of the reminders of my progress.
