One of the biggest challenges for creatives and entrepreneurs is staying motivated to pursue their dreams and aspirations when the chips are down. We tend to get discouraged and question ourselves and our purpose; especially when we don’t get the results that we expected or if things appear to get too complicated and time consuming. The least desirable thing for any of us to do is to put in work and not see any progress or positive advancement occur.
The bottom line is we are result oriented, we want to know that what we’re doing is worthwhile, we want to know that we’re headed down the right path, we want proof! Proof that our sacrifice isn’t in vain. I remember the importance of that “Great Job!” sticker when I was in second grade. It was something about receiving that sticker on my assignment that made doing the “work” worthwhile. When I got good grades, I knew that good things would come from it, so it motivated me to keep striving. Same thing goes for us as adults. We want our ‘Great Job’ stickers, son! We want the folks who told us we couldn’t do it, to see that we could… so when all the odds start stacking against us, lack of funding, lack of time, lack of support, lack of resources, that creative energy begins to deplete, and your hope starts to crumble; then we start to question… “Am I really built for this?” “Is it even worth it”
