Everyone’s a medium / healer / psychic / motivational speaker these days. Everyone has the way to peace and bliss in a 10 second video. Everyone’s got a brand, a schtick, a label and plenty of social media streams. They have more followers, sales and love from the masses than you. They are the epitome of the golden child while you grind.
“Well, daymn!”, you might think. “How in the hell do I put myself out there? Who’s gonna notice my little thing over here?”
Your thing is your thing. No one’s got it. And the people who will resonate with your message — call them clients, interested parties, soul friends, karmic connections — will find you. You don’t need thousands of followers on social media. If you do, great. You probably know how to handle pressure and expectation better than most.
But if you’re like me, with my little thing over here, you will learn that appreciation brings you more people. You build and grow — slowly. Sometimes things take off like a shot — books, sessions, events. Other times, you wait and tweak your website and find those who do it on a larger scale and learn from them. They were once where you are now (and they’d be lying if they said otherwise).
If you have 10 clients/readers/followers, awesome. Love them. Keep giving and appreciate them – because if you can’t, 10 million won’t make a difference. Keep putting out your message in posts, products or annoying food photos like the one below (Daiya says I have to eat my dairy-free cheesecake in 3 days, so I’m only following orders).
Your little thing begins to root down and finally, after many years, you’ll look up and see a powerful business that not only pays your bills but allows you to sit in the garden all morning with your coffee and wear out the batteries on your iPad. It will give you the gift of cheesecake for lunch and an exquisite day in which to choose your adventure. Faith, dedication, purpose. It all matters and will grant you the gift of living your life exactly as you desire. Your little thing is anything but.
