Ready to Stop Feeling Overwhelmed?
A Bear Encounter Is Just What You Need
EVERYONE has bad days, failures, and times when they feel they can’t take one more thing on their plate. I do the things I’ve learned over the years to maintain a growth owner mindset vs fixed victim mindset; I’ve gamified my life in a way that helps me constantly form good habits – like rehearsing my mantra every morning, habit stacking, accomplishing the goals I set, balancing my cores, and running my life like a startup.
But that doesn’t mean life doesn’t kick me in the arse every now and then. It just means I have the tools to know how to get ahead in life – instead of just staying stuck in the dark place – more quickly. And one of these tools is to help me spot when my cores are becoming too unbalanced.
Then life gets in the way and we stumble. We let our fears take over and lose that momentum we had when the world was full of wonder and potential. Even though we work hard to form good habits, life steps in and makes it hard to keep up our self-care activities. It’s important to remind ourselves now and again why personal core values are important, and do a hard reset (WITHOUT the electronics). To acknowledge the bear (fear/dwelling/unbalance), what you can learn from it, then move on.
But Were There Real Bears?
Build a Life That Can Survive without You For A Week to
Really Balance Your Cores
While I know that ultimately, I’m crucial to the success of my own business and the upbringing of my children, it’s good to know that I can unplug for a week and the systems I’ve put into place, and the people I’ve surrounded myself with, can carry on without me for a week.
I encourage my team and my family to form good habits in their cores, and in return, they encourage and support me when I need some self-care activities in mine. They are my accountability buddies in that way. Some people are flat out threatened by the thought of not being needed. A universal principle for happiness though is to live a wholistic lifestyle by balancing ALL 5 cores, which means not being shackled by any one of them.
So if you’re feeling shackled like I was, get a game plan in place. Make a list of the main areas you’d need to cover and their critical functions needed if you decided to unplug for a week. We’re living in the best time in history to do this because of how racy technology has made it to hire people remotely from all ocer the world (Fiverr, Upwork, etc) and manage them remotely (Asana, Slack, CRM’s, etc). So no excuses to get out there and reconnect with the great outdoors and some overdue quality friend time 🙂
