Self Care is The Ticket to Seven Figures
When we show up for ourselves by practicing self care, we can show up for our team and clients in much more effective and centered way.
Does your personal schedule allow for adequate amounts of self care?
Recently I was feeling out of harmony and more anxious than I usually am.
I felt the drive to find more ways to stimulate myself and I wasn’t getting any satisfaction from the things I was trying.
After I had a conversation with Alex he reminded me that taking time to be in neutral spend more time on self care would probably be a good thing to try.
I sat with that and realized that I needed to adjust my morning routine to give myself even more time to be present for myself.
I decided to take from 7am to 11am every day for self care, momentum planning, spiritual practices and connection time with my family.
I’m only a week into my new schedule, but I’ve already seen a really positive shift for me and my team.
Previously I was trying to wake up earlier, or just cram all I could into two hours of time.
That was causing me a lot of stress because I was trying to conform to something that didn’t fit my current season.
I definitely have had some guilt around taking so much time for myself, I think that’s normal to feel that way because most of us had to wear a lot of hats and get a lot of tactical work done early in our entrepreneurial career.
But, even though it’s felt weird at first, I now have the data to show that when I take time for myself I show up in a more powerful and productive way.
Moving into new season can often bring an intensity level that is unfamiliar.
I’ve often mistake that feeling for discomfort, but one of my best friends pointed out to me recently, that it was probably just a feeling of intensity that was unfamiliar.
That new mental model for the season I’m in has been very helpful.
This week I crushed a training I’ve been wanting to do for my team for years.
It was effortless to complete the training this time, at least compared to the dozens of times I’d tried to record the training before.
Now I’ve put an asset into my business that will serve me for years.
All that “selfish” time I’ve been spending this week on me is now going to be multiplied into hundreds of hours of value for the team and our clients.
It feels counterintuitive to slow down and look inward, but I can say with certainty that every time I’ve done this over the past decade as an entrepreneur I’ve reaped massive rewards and profits financially and relationally.
Don’t forget about you.
Self care is the ticket to seven figures and beyond.
P.S. How are you going to practice more self care? Reply and let me know. I’d love to see what your practices look like.
And if you reply, I’ll send you my morning routine for inspiration.
