At this moment, we are in the worst recession many of us have ever lived through. My business is down 75% from previous years, but still I say dream big. I am not saying it is easy but it is not supposed to be easy. The road to success is paved with bricks of failure and actually little amounts of failure fuel our success.
The past week was filled with a bit of failure for me. I took two portfolio's to perspective clients and both had the portfolio's for over a week. When I picked out both books, one had not been even opened and the other client said my work was more than they need from a photographer. The week continued like this, but still I say dream big, dream big. In hard times, dream big.
Imagine your wildest dreams coming to life. Forget if it is possible or not or if it has never been done before. Let your imagination run wild. We are in the midst of an abundance of change all around us and it is happening faster than change has happened before. During these times of change the impossible will become reality and those who are dreaming big will prosper. The publishing world is in a very bad place and magazines are folding left and right, but maybe the future holds a new form of magazines. Maybe in the future we will open a magazine and see pages that move in front of our eyes. Imagine a digital magazine and all the possibilities this could lead to for photographers of visual artist!
Dream big and do not put yourself in a box by confining yourself to a title. You are more than just a photographer, or a student, or a nurse, or lawyer, or whatever. You are powerful beyond your wildest dreams.
