ROCK YOUR LIFE *Entrepreneur* TIP.
A solid majority of my clients are small business owners and entrepreneurs in the inspiring/exciting/holy-shit scary start-up stage of their business. For all of you in this often overwhelming stage I would like to share 2 quick tips for managing the emotional roller coaster ride you are most likely currently riding. A roller coaster ride I have personally ridden for many years myself! It can be exhausting, defeating and most certainly not the ROCK YOUR LIFE way. ***there is a better way. trust me. MORE
Do you often ask yourself, “What do I want to do with my life?” or “Is this what and who I am supposed to be?”
Both are dangerous questions because they often lead people down an obsessive and endless path of “needing to know” versus “needing to grow”.
May I suggest a different approach? Stop ASKING yourself what you want to do with your life and start DOING things that will bring you more clarity…a clarity that can only be created by taking action. MORE
For years I have been teaching the concept that to be living a life that invites joy, fun, fulfillment and LOVE we must be OPEN to our evolution.
AKA: the ebb and flow of our always -changing life experience and perspectives.
I have even gone as far as to say that while goals are important, it is in being OPEN to your EVOLUTION that will ultimately lead you down the path of SOUL-CENTRED SUCCESS.
AKA: a fun and flourishing life!
Whew. What a crazy three months in my world. We sold our house, moved into a 1100 sq. foot apartment (six of us) and built a new home. It was a test of endurance….how much chaos was I able to put up with? I learned a lot about letting go, managing expectations of perfection, being present, embracing gratitude, following my gut (YES! the island DID need to be moved over 6 inches) and lots more. I’m exhausted. And excited. MORE
Rocking GRATITUDE in our adult lives is key to truly flourishing (and having more fun). Fulfillment, positive relationships, confidence, compassion and purpose are all attracted into our lives when we practice the habit of being grateful. Dr. Caron Goode says that, “Grateful people are happier, more resilient, and less depressed.”
It all sounds so EASY right? Of course it does.
It’s damn easy to be HAPPY and GRACIOUS when times are good–when we are getting what we want and feeling satisfied and uplifted as a result.
JOY, HAPPINESS + FUN ARE ALL BUILT ON GRATITUDE.
But how do you react when things go awry? When you are disappointed? When you are hurt, angry or rejected? It is in these moments when we really need to SHINE our light of gratitude. To own the experience, learn from it and move forward. MORE
How many times have you found yourself in a position of change….forced upon by life circumstances or instigated by personal choices…that have left you dazed, confused and unsure of the why’s behind ANY OF IT.
Life junctions, plagued by emotional turbulence and unrelenting thinking marathons, that leave both the body and mind exhausted.
The break up. Found love.
The lost job. The new job.
Challenges in health. The weight of time.
