WE ARE DRIVEN BY OUR VISION
As I trudged through careers, adapting who I am to fit a man-made world and mould, I learnt to navigate and find my outlet for creative liberation. Within the confines of fixed income day jobs and my private pursuits, I was able to stay afloat in spite of feeling as though part of myself was dying each day I was forced to conform to a life that wasn’t my idea of living.
In May 2013 while hosting a staff function, something unexpected happened to change my life forever. As I stood with my colleagues who were almost like family, I felt their energy and affinity renew my spirit and reason for being.
With a close family member ill, at the end of that year I finally made the JUMP to quit cold turkey and begin my micro-business. Though I was oodles happier doing what I loved, the struggle.was.very.real. I experienced writer’s block for the first time while completing my second book but gained priceless personal and professional euphoric moments.
Truth be told, I felt what most creatives experience at times: the undervaluation and lack of respect others place on our time and heart. Anyone wishing to quit a steady income and pursue this life full-time must know that without a support system of like-minds [entrepreneurs], lots of planning (financially and otherwise) the experience can actually be very isolating, disturbing and debilitating.
However there’s an innate universal truth I keep returning to for motivation and renewal.
If your purpose (your WHY) do not align with genuinely helping others; then if/when you fail to meet your target right away, you just may find yourself frustrated, losing speed to continue towards your intended destination. This too is relative and never-ending as we strive towards evolution based on what school of thought we choose to follow.
HIC Omega Consulting: ‘Where creativity surpasses expectations.’
Our philosophy is simple: Do what you truly LOVE. That which fuels your energy and time stands still. What you’d do even if you didn’t get paid (hypothetically) since your true customers would see your HEART.
There you’d find lasting fulfillment, abundance and joie de vivre as you impact lives, attracting everything good and leaving a lasting impression on (almost) everyone you meet.
This is my secret to lasting joy and how I’d like others to feel about their daily lives.
