Make Sh*t Happen
We are all guilty of it. We make excuses. We make excuses for everything that goes wrong, and it doesn’t matter if it’s a wedding or a portrait shoot. “The bride was a bitch.” “They didn’t want their picture taken.” “The groomsmen were unruly.” “We didn’t have enough time.” “The kids wouldn’t listen.” Excuse after excuse after excuse.
Are you OK with that? I mean, it’s not really a rhetorical question. Seriously, are you OK accepting and blaming everyone else for why things went wrong? I, for one, am not. I want to control my own destiny. And you can too. It’s easier than you think. You just have to change the way you think
Controlling your own path is not always easy. End of day, when things go wrong, you have no one to blame but yourself. On the flip side, you know that when things go right, you can be proud of your accomplishments. Growth comes from dealing with the adversity and challenges in every shoot.
