Are You Testing Your Dedication?

The Show Must Go On!

Hello Artrepreneurs,

If you’ve ever tried to do something big and bold in your life, chances are it didn’t go smooth.  A big performance, a big showing, a big marketing campaign.  If it’s big, it’s probably going to have big problems along the way.

It’s a natural instinct for people to deal with a fight or flight decision when things go wrong.  Do you fake an illness?  Do you run away? Do you fight through the tough things and see it through? 


Hopefully, you have true grit and are willing to fight through the obstacles that could hold you back.  In business, THE SHOW MUST GO ON is the golden rule that must be followed.

If you give up on your dreams because they’re hard to achieve, well, maybe it’s just the dream that you enjoy, not the reality.

If you like to celebrate yourself for saying you’ll do something vs. completing the tasks, maybe you should re-think your ambitions.


If you’re truly committed to dreaming big, living bold and creating your rhythm of profitability, you’re going to test your dedication by fighting through the tough spots to reach your goals.

If things come so easy for you, then you’re probably not pushing yourself hard enough.  You’re probably not taking big enough risks.


“You want to have butterflies in your stomach, because if you don’t, if you walk onstage complacent, that’s not a good thing.” – Joan Jett

Test your dedication this week, start taking some risks that force you out of your comfort zone.  If you feel nervous about it, it’s probably the thing you should be doing to test your dedication to achieving your dreams.

Life doesn’t stop for you, and so when things go wrong, you need to show your grit and push through the hard stuff.  When it’s all over, you’ll feel much better and will be much better off for standing up to the fight vs. running away from the challenge.
