Recently while grocery shopping, I turned down the wine aisle and gazed upon the rows of Merlot, chardonnay, champagne and mixers and thought, "There is enough for all of us."
I am sure whenever any of these brands were in the concept stage or even when they were placed on the shelves, there were people who discouraged them...'You cannot go against [insert brand here], they are the best! No one knows who you are, how are you going to sell?'
Perhaps you do not consume wine, or maybe you prefer Merlot to chardonnay or whiskey over bourbon or you are a tequila aficionado, the point is there is a consumer for each type and brand. There is not just one on the market.
This also applies to your dreams and goals, including love.
- There is more than 1 path.
- There is more than 1 client.
- There is more than 1 consumer.
- There is more than 1 coach.
- There is more than 1 therapist.
- There is more than 1 man/woman.
Just because your journey doesn't resemble another does not mean you are traveling in the wrong direction. Carve out your own space. Build upon your uniqueness. Trust your intuition. You know what to do. -Misha N Granado, MPH, MS
