This is something I had to learn from early into my photography business in 2015 because at the beginning it’s not about money…even though that’s what you think it has to be. You got to work hard but financial rewards come later… once established. It’s not an instant reward for most businesses…. as it takes time… which I sometimes don’t have patience. I had to learn to walk before I run… that “Rome wasn’t built overnight” all these sayings were told to me and it took me a while for me to understand.
But success is defined in many terms but what you have to learn is what does it mean to you. Kind of like LOVE? Love can be described in many ways by different people… and everyone has different opinions about it… I believe the same goes with success. It’s not always about $$$ to be it’s about chasing the vision. The vision of living in a world where people are finding happiness within themselves through yoga. The most people I can inspire to practice yoga and plant that seed of starting their life long practice the more I feel successful.
The vision of inspiring people to find self-love through practising yoga … connecting their bodies and minds together to as one … I know will not only help them but will cascade into the entire world.
I have changed my mindset a lot especially since I started my zero waste journey…with what success looks like even to the point that having less vs. more! That probably sounds NUTS… for a businesswoman to say but it’s all about perspective and having an open mind to what I mean.
Success is not all about what my account balance looks like. It is how I want to measure it on my own terms that connect with my values and vision.
