"The Power of Positive Thinking"

>> Thursday, February 18

I just had to post this forum post by Ozarknana, an Etsy seller. It is very inspiring and truly a sobering thought:

"Accomplishment of purpose is better than making a profit."

~Nigerien Proverb

Take a good look at what you create. Did you plan it's creation? Does it have your heart in it? Is it constructed with quality materials? Does it have those "little touches" that only you could add? Do you see someone receiving it loving it the moment they see it? Does a part of you smile and admire it? Then you've accomplished your "purpose", "selling" it is just the icing on the cake. When you stop putting your heart and soul into what you create, when you reduce the price just to "sell" it, when you look at it and see dollar signs instead of beaming with pride....then you've turned the corner from Artist to Salesman....think about that when you take up your craft and create something today. Do it for the heart, not the dollar...if you do, the dollar will come! Have a wonderful Wednesday....
