Wolverine, your talents in the "What can I do" area don't have to be business related. They could be things like, "Empathize with others. Understand complex issues easily. Great logic skills. Great listener. Very organized. Able to explain difficult concepts to others, etc."
Nani, that's a good question. How do you know when you just need to persevere vs that you may need to go in another direction. Steve and I certainly have faced that issue. I think I may have briefly mentioned that when Steve was running his games business, man no one worked harder. He was doing the work of 4 people and he was literally working all day long and sometimes all night long to finish tasks. He thought if he just kept at it that eventually it would all come together, it just HAD to. But it didn't. Not until he turned to shareware games did things get better. That's when he learned the lesson of relying on himself not an outside publisher. But even then as his income grew, so did his expenses until he was at a point where he was making a lot of money but spending most of it on employees and rent and royalties, etc. We still weren't getting ahead, still had no money saved, and he was still working his butt off. He was not a vibrational match for the games business. It was close! But still, he was not a complete vibrational match for it. He had some success but only because he pushed so incredibly hard.
It wasn't until he switched into personal development, which I could see all along was his real and true north, that he found himself in the flow, paddling with the current of the river instead of against it. And then success came relatively quickly and easily (1 year or so). Sure, he was still working, but it no longer felt like work to him. It was just part of him and he was expressing through a natural outflow the best parts of himself.
so how to tell if a road block is a road block that means you have to go another way... that's why it's important to be in touch with who you really are. Challenges and road blocks are two different things. You've got to feel your way through it. See if what you're doing resonates with yoru soul or only with your logic and mind.
