How to Stay Consistent as a Vata EntrepreneurOct 24, 2023
When I think of how much of a unicorn 🦄 my Vata clients are, I hear Lady Gaga's song "Born This Way". They have always been drumming to the beat of their own songs since they were lil babes. It wasn't even a question whether they would go to art or fashion school, because 'baby they were born this way 👩🏻🎤'.
While it does sound super electric ⚡️to be a Vata, the truth is that it wasn't easy to always be the different one. A lot of times, parents and family, highly questioned their alternative path and questioned 🧐 if they will be successful doing the thing they love most. Their friends made fun of them for being 'out there' 😖 or having 'too big of dreams'. But ultimately, all of this resistance and push back leads them down a long road of building unshakeable self trust in knowing who they are. After years of sticking to their truth, they finally learn to not budge or settle for anything less than owning their uniqueness 😉.
When Vatas finally get to the point of starting their own business, they exhale 💨, knowing they have reached liberation- basically nirvana 🤤. They are finally their own boss and don't have to listen to anyone else! But as they try to grow their business, they realize their flowy way of living gets in the way of being organized in their calendars and committed to their goals 😥. They fall short each time they enact on a new project and feel defeated when they don't complete it. They know their ideas are pioneering and beyond creative, but lack the ability to follow through with them 😓.
So why is it so difficult for Vatas to be consistent?😮
Well, first, we need to address why Vatas like to be consistent 😈.
It is obvious how important living an unconventional life is to Vatas. You do not work well in 9-5 structures or typical office environments 🤭. You like to dance to the beat of your own drum. Period. You will not succumb to societal norms 😷. However, your ability to be creative and unique does not mean that you have to lack devotion to your work. You can still be creative while also finding a way to stay committed to your goals 😎.
Now that you know why, it is important to reflect on why the word 'consistency' and 'commitment' can feel so damn triggering 🤪.
Take inventory of what these words meant to you in the past. Did you have a super rigid job that suffocated you 😨? Did you have ridiculously strict rules from your parents growing up 😰? So often, Vatas project their past experience of these words onto their future experiences. They think 'ugh, if I have schedule it means I have to work 9-5". Or, they think if they create goals, they have to neglect their intuition guiding them 🤨.
The truth is that consistency is really just showing up for yourself on a regular basis, which FYI, doesn’t have to mean posting on social everyday 🥳. Consistency can just be devoting a segmented time for your business every day, week and/or month. Now, what you do in that time period is where it gets real fun. This is where you learn how to make your own rules as CEO of your business 😚. You can plan which weeks you know you feel most productive and schedule your more arduous tasks on those days. The weeks you feel most creative are for content creation. The week where you will like not doing anything but sitting cross legged on your meditation cushion, well 'om' the F on 🧘🏼♀️.
You see, sweet lil, Vata, your business needs to be fun and exciting 🎉 otherwise you will jump ship. Why? Because that is not who you are! Your ability to infuse excitement into every aspect of your business determines your ability to stay consistent and therefore, successful 👏.
