How Do I Know When to Quit or Move Forward
Updated: Jun 19
This has always been a tough one for me. I'm in the middle of this quandary right now. I've been making little progress in this work that I long to do. I know this stuff works - it's worked for me in my life and I've seen it work for others.
It's true I have put some limits on what I'm willing to do to get my website seen. I won't use any social media that promotes and profits from hate. My internal integrity monitor goes to the red zone when I consider stomping on this internal principle.
What I do know is this - - I ask my spirit guides for help and something shows up. Not always immediately but rather quickly. Here's a recent example:
I asked for help in advertising my business in a way that wouldn't violate my integrity. A couple days ago I had asked my website designer if she did billboards. My thinking was that I needed to make a visual impact and that was the only way I came up with. So I called her.
All of my business dealings with her so far had been online so a phone call was out of the ordinary but it was so spontaneous I didn't think twice.
We talked about the billboard (she wasn't keen, said it cost a lot and may not get me what I wanted.). She suggested digital advertising. I asked her to tell me more about what she had in mind and after she explained it I asked her to come up with a campaign.
I haven't seen it yet but I'm sure it will be fabulous.
Here's my point (finally). I asked for help and it was provided. Things just unfolded.
There is another key ingredient with this - I didn't try to take control. I could have, I have before, but I'm gonna stay out of the way and let the expert help me. Sure, I'll make decisions along the way, like how much to spend and whether I like the design BUT I'm letting the situation unfold. I'll let you know how it turns out.
