Helping others is good. And so is profit*.
Those of us in the service and healing arts industry tend to give ourselves away more than we need to. And when we have trouble paying our bills, we tend to think we need better time management and marketing skills. And more clients.
Maybe. But I believe that for many of us, we won’t become more profitable - or have more clients - until we get better at valuing ourselves first. Without that, the marketing and everything else just adds more work to our day, and we end up working hard for those that can’t truly value our service.
Yes, do what makes you happy. But if it drives you to the ground and causes worry, it won’t sustain.
Yes, do what affects positive change in the world. But if it causes burn-out, it won’t last.
Yes, do it in a way that makes you accessible. But if it attracts co-dependents, the good stuff won’t last and you will find yourself doing a whole lot of karma dance with a whole lot of energy vampires.
… and instead of flowing with radiance, you will be drained.
Choose to engage with those who are truly able to say YES! to you.
*Let's not confuse profit with greed. Nor helping others with enabling others. .
