Lindsey Smith - Follow the Joy

tips from podcast guests Sep 03, 2021

Insight and inspiration for flying higher in the difference only you can make from guests who have appeared on Creative on Purpose Live.

This week's wisdom comes from Lindsey Smith, co-founder of You Can Get It Done Productions. Tune into the entire conversation here.

[LINDSEY] I think it would be to follow the joy. You know, I think a lot of times, I said this a little bit, but I think a lot of times we think "I need to do what makes sense." Right? Like, "Oh, all these people are doing courses. I need to create a course." But that doesn't maybe feel joyful to me for whatever reason.

And even if it seems a little off the wall. Like I can just think of so many examples of people that we worked with when they follow that joy or that hunger, that inkling, even if it doesn't seem like a quote-unquote "the business thing to do," I just... The results have always been amazing when you just listen to that intuitive guide, that intuition, that nudge that's like, "Okay this isn't the businessy thing that I thought but it's really what I'm feeling right now."

I think, again, it comes back to the energy. It's because, if you're tapped into it, if you're into it, people are going to recognize that and what I find is it's usually greater than you ever even imagined.

So that would be my advice, to really listen to that. Follow that joy and don't necessarily be afraid of it. Let it, you know, guide you and see what happens. I mean, the thing is, you can always try, you know? If it doesn't work? Okay, you can move on but at least you listened to that nudge and now you know? Now you know!
