Years ago I went to a Robin Williams’ comedy event called "Raw" where he was testing out new material.
As a big fan of his movies -- I was very surprised that, at the event, most of the jokes he told were terrible. I had no idea that he was so un-funny :)
But this is how many comedians do it. I've heard that Chris Rock does this too. And so did Richard Pryor. These are called “work in progress” gigs.
Next time you earnestly pursue a project, yet still “fail” to get the hoped-for results, remember this: There is no failure, only redirection.
Even the lack of feedback is feedback. You’re getting the instruction from Life to try something else.
You are being redirected to another idea, another method, another experiment.
A higher purpose than “getting results” is your own learning, your inner growth in patience, lightheartedness, and courage.
The most common financial goal for solopreneurs? To make “6 figures”.
(And if they achieve that, they now have to make “7 figures” because you can never make enough, right?)
How do you relate to goals?
One of the secrets to a joyfully productive life:
Learn to become sensitive — often — to your state of being, throughout the day.
And if you catch yourself in a less-than-optimal state, do your energy reboot practice, right away, to re-enter a good state.
A simple way to gauge your state of being is to ask:
“Right now, am I in green, yellow, or red?”
One of the inner blocks for self-employed people is charging money — or charging enough — for a service that they love providing.
One of the outer blocks is, of course, not having enough clients!
In this post, I’ll share a method that can help resolve both issues…
