How to know what you really want


I have a staging company and find myself comparing myself to other stagers at certain times. I have a unique look that is fairly well received throughout the city I live in. It’s a bit more minimalist than some of the staging I see. And so, sometimes when I see other people’s work I am struck by how nice it is and start going down the negative, I don’t use enough furniture, my stuff isn’t this nice, blah, blah, blah track. What I haven’t been able to figure out is if I am using my ‘style’ as a crutch to not have to buy more furniture (ie, spend more money) and not have a really high-end look (b/c I tell myself I don’t want to work with high-end agents b/c I think they’re snobby and have expectations that are too high) or if it’s truly the look I’m after. In other words, I don’t really know what I want and am having trouble figuring it out. I feel like all of this might be an excuse and I’m just holding myself back. How do I get to the bottom of this? I have other examples of this in my life too. This is just the one weighing on me right now.
