Funny that this is today's question.
Recently I had to go through a re-branding for my business. Trisha Trixie Designs. www.trishatrixie.com
I spoke with an advisor who made a few suggestions to me. I am not one to just jump at what people tell me. I make my own decisions. But what she said made sense to me. As well I have been feeling very apprehensive to the fact that I was using a name I thought could create a Trademark infringement. I had don't my research at the time I started the business but I knew I had not vetted everything out. So I went back through and found out I can't use the name.
Mind you all of this happened JUST one week ago.
I changed the name and alerted everyone what was going on.
Then my worst fears happened...
Everyone jumped ship...all at once.
It wasn't just the fact that one person backed out, it was that all of them backed out at once. Then another, then another. And..then another...
IT was more than I could handle. I saw the vision. I could see what I wanted. But then I realized why I was so upset and so hurt...
I believed in these people. I trusted them. I put my faith in them.
and they ABANDONED ME.
When I realized that is what I was feeling, my thought process changed.
I remembered why I started my business...because I believed in me and what I saw for my future.
I think we believe in others we put too much faith in another person and not enough in ourselves. We think we can't do it without them. Whether that be in business or relationships.What do I wish to believe in?
I wish to believe in miracles.
I wish to believe in a higher power that watches over us and is there for us.
I wish to believe in myself.
But most of all I dearly wish to believe in humanity of man, that people are inherently good and they DO care about their fellow man.
This past week really has made me wonder.
It is not for me to ask why? It is only for me to accept it and pull up my boot straps and turn the page and move on. I do not understand how people could do that. But as my man helped me see...
The Game Theory.
People (most people) have their own interests at heart first.
So they didn't want to be a part of my business anymore. I need to not take it personal. I am not the victim. Remember everything I have learned in the past two years. It was not a personal attack on me. If it was, oh well. But mostly it was probably a decision. That is all.
So, are people good? I don't know.
But I like to wish, to hope, to believe that there are still good people out there in the world...
This is my wish.
As you wish, I wish for you also.
