Do your best to find that one small jewel in the pile of dirt or locate that one untouched piece of wood from a massive fire. It makes the whole event and time spent worth it.
A few years back i attended a convention that wasn't "amazing". It had a nice look and decorations but the location wasn't fit for the show and the advertising was slim. Overall it wasn't looking good, with the table cost, an expensive hotel, more tolls tallied up (both too and from), plus the greatest part was only a few guests actually knew about it and showed up. It was one of those times when everything seems to be going down and the outlook isn't pretty.
It's in these times that we must focus more on that sliver of light when your locked in a dark basement.
Make sure to find these nuggets. The situation wont get better from complaining and self pity
A slight shift in my thinking and i was now allowed to cool down and let go of the stress of a LIKENESS
Then to take it a step further it gave me a base and a blank canvas to jump into other new and exciting ideas. So please take a moment and think about this the next time you are in a situation you are not completely happy with and instead of getting yourself down search for the beauty in the mud.
