Have you ever had one? You know, a crisis? As in, what is life all about? Why, oh why am I here?
Why am I on this beach when I should be back home marketing my photography studio?
And other compelling struggles?
My life has been a long series of struggles. I’m sure you can relate.
The thing is and what matters is, what direction do you take? That’s what’s important.
Do we wallow? Or move forward?
I like moving forward. Even if but an inch at a time.
Years ago, way back in my my early, early twenties, I recall having a big question of questions creep into my little pea brain head: “What is my big theme in life?”
Or something like that. Do you know what answer almost instantly popped in my thoughts?
Communication. Go figure. Communication. And me, the most awkward, shyest, tongue tied kid ever. I have no idea where that came from, but there it was, and I picked it up and ran with it.
Me thinks it’s one of the main reasons why I faced the demons of fear decades ago and kinda sorta mastered public speaking. I’m sure it’s tied into why I write all these bloody emails.
I like communicating. Maybe, just maybe it’s also tied into marketing a business.
I do believe it’s got something to do with my attending a 3 day conference in L.A. last week, hosted by the worlds’ greatest voice coach, Roger Love.
Not sure how that happened. But there I was. And it was amazing. And it ties into this theme of communication. (and my secret inner desire to be a old black blues singer….more on that later).
Tomorrow night I’m running our marketing mastermind, where we all get together and have a group crisis, discuss marketing, share ideas, ask compelling questions and search out actionable answers.
You won’t get answers if you don’t ask.
I’ll also be sharing some of thoughts on the Voices of Success with Roger Love.
