“There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique.
And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost.
The world will not have it.
It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions.
It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open.
You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work.
You have to keep yourself open and aware to the urges that motivate you.
Keep the channel open …”
– MARTHA GRAHAM
I love this quote – because it’s NOT about …
Trying harder and working yourself to the bone.
Being more strategic and hoping that your strategy is better than your competitors.
Creating a solid business plan which you then have to cruelly follow step-by-step.
Instead it’s about …
Getting in the game.
And keeping the channel open.
Or as I like to say it: Keeping The ‘CHANEL’ Open.
Cuz that’s way more fun for a fancy lady!
And unlike a real CHANEL handbag, this luxury is free.
