What are you doing today to become the person you want to be tomorrow? Dealing with Pandemic Fatigue.
This is a question that has been on my mind this year during the pandemic.
Business development and personal development are really intricately linked. Since I spend so much time helping others learn the business, I often forget to focus on my own growth. Do you do the same thing?
If you are feeling weary and unmotivated in life generally, this will show up in your business and affect your employee’s performance and growth.
So, one of the most important things you can do to see progress in your business is to pay attention to how you are feeling and make your personal well-being a central priority each week.
This means getting the rest you need, whether it is sleep at night or down-time during the day.
Eating nutritious food that nourishes you.
Getting the balance right with movement and exercise.
Spending time with people who energize you. This is so important. We often spend all of our time with people who take all of our energy and give nothing back. If you have employees who suck the energy out of the organization, it is time for them to find their joy elsewhere.
Making space for the enjoyment of the simple things YOU choose.
And doing more things that feel fun and get you laughing. We do not laugh enough daily.
It is not good for us to stay stuck, knowing that we have specific goals and dreams but feeling like we are powerless to do anything about it.
And what we do today determines where we find ourselves in 1, 3, 6, 12 months from now.
I am setting myself a challenge to get specific about how I want to be growing and developing in 2021.
There are things in my business I know I am going to be working on, and new things I want to learn. What challenges will you give yourself and your teams?
And the amazing thing? As you start to see a goal progressing, or that you are getting better at something, it is about my belief that progress is tangible, and that I have the power to change even the things in my life that feel fixed and permanent.
It is always easier to stick to those same limiting narratives. What is your limiting narrative?
I will never be good at X.
I will never make it as a consultant, area manager, site manager…
I have never been good at making/saving money.
I will never lose the weight I want to.
I will never be good at sports.
I will never learn to play an instrument.
It does not matter if it is business or life, we can be so good at stacking up those limiting beliefs.
So, I would like to encourage you today to get curious and remove all the ‘shoulds’ and doubts.
Where do you want to be in 12 months’ time?
And what will it look like to start taking one step at a time towards that goal?
Take 2021 by the horns!!
