Don't Forget - This is Supposed to Be Fun

I was reading an article recently on the Going Pro blog, and this one section caught my eye, and I found myself nodding profusely at it:

"So, for those of you who stay awake at night worrying about your business or wondering when the Success Fairy is going to tap you on the shoulder – relax and just keep working hard. Keep building your network. Keep fine tuning your skills. Stay focused on your marketing…but stop worrying about success."

I've been very guilty lately of overstressing about everything.  "When is this going to happen?"  "Why are these people getting paid for this when all their photos are blurry?" "Am I wasting my time doing this?"  We can't live our lives worrying about other people, and stressing about everything.  Not only is it going to drive us nuts, but it's going to drive the people around us nuts as well.  I don't know about you guys, but my life is much better when I'm not overly worried about everything, because honestly, I do have much more important stuff in my life that I could worry about (and I do, but it's just not at the forefront all the time).

The big question though I finally found myself asking after reading this was, "am I working my hardest at this," and when I found the answer was "no", I resolved to take it to that next level, and push myself to do the best that I can do.  After that, I just have to shrug my shoulders and see what happens next.

I'm going to keep doing what I'm doing, step it up some more, and attempt to sit back and relax, and just enjoy shooting!
