It hurts, doesn’t it? The pain is real. Whether it was a physical burn, even a sunburn, it has lasting effects and takes time to heal.
Even if you didn’t take proper precautions or it was an accident, you still got scorched. You treat the wounds quickly, but each day reveals a different layer. Did you feel hot, get blisters, and experience peeling? It went deep inside, didn’t it?
What if you got burned in business? That hurts too. Maybe you don’t know how a project went so wrong when you thought it was a masterpiece that you poured your heart and extra time into. All the pieces finally came together, and you did your best to make it a masterpiece.
Communication and results went well before. Like staying in the sun too long, you felt fried. With every skin cell peeling off, it left you raw and exhausted. You wonder what you could have done differently? You question whether all this time was worth it when the goal is not only happy clients but receiving revenue. Instead you lost time, money, and your passion. Keep in mind, not every client is a good fit.
More bills go unpaid and you feel sick. You thought it was a solution, especially when revenue is essential. What if this type of work is not your calling or passion? Maybe it’s just a distraction even though you’ve successfully completed similar projects with excellence many times.
Let the layers fall off. Let the dead skin cells flake off (gross, sorry). You have new skin in the game. Play a different game. There is a new thing waiting for you. Discover what that is and jump in. Stop doing work just to please others or because you think it was your only skill and is familiar. No matter what your bank account looks like now, it will grow. You will be okay even if you don’t know how right now.
Don’t let yourself get burned. It will lead to burnout. If you have been feeling weary, it may be that you are not stepping into your greatness. Search your heart. Find your true passion. Get busy living instead of dying. The right people are waiting for you.
