Your customers are looking for advice, answers, and direction.
So why are you giving them sales pitches?

The critic who doesn't like your work is right.

The critic who says no-one else will like your work is wrong.

You have never really lived until you have done something for someone who can never repay you.

If you're not spending your privilege, someone else is going to go into debt.

"If you think you're too small to make a difference, try sleeping with a mosquito."

~ The Dalai Lama

If you need to explain it to a client, then explain it.

If you need to explain it to the consumer, you need to rethink your premise.

"Apparently the only thing more devastating to your brain than thinking you can’t have something is the knowledge that someone else can."

~ Aja Raden

People who aren't creative always seem to associate success with process. As though copying someone else is the route to success, good luck with that.

Just because you don’t understand it, doesn’t mean it isn’t true.

It doesn’t mean it isn’t important.

If we spend our days ignoring the things we don’t understand (because they must not be true and so must not be important) all we’re left with is already-explored territory with little chance of improvement.

Nothing happens until somebody feels something.

When you're being blamed and your only defense is "everybody's to blame," the odds are you're to blame.

“No man is invincible. Therefore, no man can understand what it means to be invincible.”

~ Miyamoto Musashi

We don’t tell ourselves the truth because it’s easier to protect our view of ourselves and the world than it is to change our minds.

The easy path makes us think the problem is with other people rather than ourselves.

The easy path absolves us from putting in the work to address the real issues.

The easy path keeps us from being a better version our ourselves.

“Where all think alike, no one thinks very much.”

~ Walter Lippmann

“Sometimes we need the fog to remind ourselves that all of life is not black and white.”

~ Jonathan Blackwood Huie

The subject line’s job isn’t to sell.
It’s to get the email opened.

Your competition isn’t other people.

Your competition is your procrastination. Your ego. The unhealthy food you’re consuming, the knowledge you neglect. The negative behavior you’re nurturing & your lack of creativity.

Compete against that.
