Last week we talked about the difference between a Threat vs a Challenge. At the very end of the podcast I gave you a way to turn a threat into a Challenge. This is an example of reframing, or changing the way you think about a problem, in order to see more possible solutions. If you're an email subscriber, you got an email that walked you through the reframing of my own recent obstacle (Didn't get it? Subscribe here!)
I recorded a podcast about this 2 years ago, episode 3, but Starship Captains asked me to dive into it deeper this week. We'll discuss what reframing is, how to do it, and how to turn it into a habit.
Let's face it – there are obstacles you'll face on your way to building your creative business. The question isn't how to avoid them, but how to overcome them. It comes down to how you approach them and think about them: Are these obstacles threats or challenges?
In this episode we discuss the difference between a threat and a challenge reaction, and how to have a challenge mindset toward the obstacles in your handmade business.
