Be Flexible About How You Get There
Are you gripping tightly to a business model that may not be the best fit for you?
An essential skill set in the wellness field is to be flexible in HOW your work shows up in the world.
When you keep an open mind, you’ll be able to see hidden opportunities in perhaps serving a specific tribe of people or under a different message that appeals to a more engaged audience.
Another way to think about this is to imagine what it's like to get a book published. Publishers know a lot about what sells and what doesn't. And let's say they want to put a different book cover design and title on your book then you had imagined.
A great book cover will grab people's attention and sell your book for you. A poorly designed book cover will get ignored. What’s inside the book is what you know, and that doesn't change. Would you be willing to change your book cover if it got into more people's hands? Or would you fight to make sure it fit your idea of what your book cover looked like?
Consider asking yourself this question: Could your vision for your private practice come to fruition in a different way?
It may look differently than what you imagined (it did for me and many of my clients).
Your willingness to be flexible in how your work gets expressed in the world is one of the keys to success.
