As an entrepreneur, you are probably juggling numerous balls at the same time and quite often feeling a sense of overwhelm...the “am I getting anywhere” syndrome, “was this the right decision” worry and above all else...the “CAN I REALLY DO THIS” question...
During my entire life as an entrepreneur, I have learned some very specific strategies that have helped guide me through those “doubt” questions and move me forward into each adventure...I am an adventure seeker.
My Five Ways to Live Better approach has given me a focus point, attitude and centered approach to accomplishing how I want to show up in the world and make a difference ...everything you want to accomplish starts with YOU showing up BETTER in the WORLD...your success will fall into place as you become the best version of you...
1) Start Your Day With INSPIRATION
This can be as simple as reading for just a few minutes or working out while listening to a thought provoking podcast or book. Some of my favorites are inspirational leaders on YouTube. They help me think bigger and more focused and those 45 minutes on the treadmill fly by for me. Maybe you will become more centered after taking time to do 30 minutes of art or listening to some inspirational music. Whatever you decide to incorporate, your morning routine can set the tone for your day and your goal is to start your day INSPIRED!
2) Be YOUR Best
Be the BEST version of you! Remember, wherever you go, you take yourself with you so get up, show up and be READY! And it’s not easy all the time. But the fact remains that LIKE attracts LIKE. And the better you are, the more you will be surrounded by like minded people. We become the average of the 5 people we spend the most time with so choose your environment wisely! The goal is to be your best...be BETTER than yesterday!
3) Be MINDFUL With Your Choices
This area can be SO hard ...the truth is, we ARE stronger than we think! It just takes a second to pause and think…”will this be good for me?” “how will I feel afterwards?” This applies to so many things...eating, shopping, what we choose to SAY to someone... BE MINDFUL
So PAUSE...think, then choose. The goal is to REALIZE that you have the power to choose!
4) Be KIND
Always, always, always tell those you care about that you love them...EVERYDAY. Maybe help a stranger in need or ask the clerk at the store how she is doing ...look at their name tag and address them by name. I promise, you will lift them up and you will feel equally good. The goal here is to recognize the LOVE in your heart and use it to be BETTER!
5) Be PROUD of YOU
Too many times we are so HARD on ourselves! Take a time out and reflect on just how GOOD you are! I don’t mean boastful, I mean really realizing YOUR gifts, what you have to share with the world. There is only ONE of you, so be PROUD of that…you have gifts that ONLY YOU possess and it’s time for you to share them!
