I was wishing but I wasn’t doing anything about it.

Oct 16, 2017

Ten years ago, I was literally on my knees, begging the universe, god(s), goddesses and divine powers that be to help my dreams become a reality.

I wanted a successful design business.

Scratch that, I wanted a successful design business that was EASY to run and didn’t suck the life out of me.

I wanted a full-to-the-brim bank account and scrapbooks filled with happy holiday memories.
I wanted a lot. And I couldn’t quite understand why I didn’t have it already.

Then it hit me: I was wishing but I wasn’t doing anything about it.

Maybe you’re doing the same thing at the moment? Maybe you’re longing to attract more – and better – clients. Maybe you want to work less hours but earn more. Maybe you want to ditch the nine-to-five and go off on your own.

If this is you … keep reading. I know why you haven’t been able to wish your way to the business you deserve … yet.

Liz Gilbert says it best in Eat Pray Love: 

“There’s a wonderful old Italian joke about a poor man who goes to church every day and prays before the statue of a great saint, begging, “Dear saint-please, please, please … give me the grace to win the lottery.” This lament goes on for months. Finally the exasperated statue comes to life, looks down at the begging man and says in weary disgust, “My son-please, please, please … buy a ticket.”

I was praying and begging and crying and tantruming but I wasn’t buying the fricken metaphorical lottery ticket. I wasn’t doing anything about my dreams. It was like I expected a divine statue to come to life and build my business for me.

But you can’t just WISH your way to the perfect biz … you have to do this too.

If you want a successful EASY design business you need the desire, yes, but you also need the intention and motion …

Prayer is a relationship; half the job is mine. If I want transformation, but can’t even be bothered to articulate what, exactly, I’m aiming for, how will it ever occur? Half the benefit of prayer is in the asking itself, in the offering of a clearly posed and well-considered intention. If you don’t have this, all your pleas and desires are boneless, floppy, inert; they swirl at your feet in a cold fog and never lift.” Elizabeth Gilbert

Half the job of this whole ‘divine blessing’ things is yours. You need to:

·      Figure out exactly what you want.
·      Get crystal clear on your target market.
·      Define what your business will look and feel like.
·      Create solutions that fulfill your target market’s needs.
·      Cultivate a clear brand voice and personality.
·      Put clever systems and processes in place to simplify your business.

Phwoar, sound like waaaay too much work? Not to mention a clusterbuck of ‘where do I start’ and ‘what am I supposed to do again?’

Thankfully there is an (almost) divine tool to help you figure all of this out:
