One thing I see that is pretty common with the women business owners that I work with is that they don’t always feed their own needs and desires first. I believe this is hurting your business if this is you.
The key is to connect more with yourself and your needs so that you can be your best self in your business and attract more clients. It works if you dedicate time to working on yourself.
I’ve been guilty of this too at times, no one is perfect. But these days I’m relatively aware of watching out for this on a weekly basis and I urge you to be as well. Let me give you some examples of what I want and need to fill my tanks and then I want you to think about what you need or want to fill yours.
First of all, I did this exercise one time at a self-development workshop where we were focused on learning more about what men think (this was when I was single and looking).
It made me realize the four tanks I had to fill each day and what things I could do to fill them. It’s hard to explain in a short article like this but these tanks involved basically characteristics or values that I held high (mine are Love, Faith, Passion and Happiness). There was a pretty involved process I went through to discover these, they didn’t just come to me. In fact, it was curious to me that none of them involved making money or having wealth?
I’m the type of person though that really requires eight hours sleep every night in order to be my fully, loving and focused self. I also require creativity time during my day, not every day but most days. Time in which I can record a video training or tip, express myself on an interview or teleclass, write an article or think up new ideas and implement them. I also require time with my immediate family and loved ones, specifically my fiancé who is my best friend and fun to talk to. All of these things make me happy and feed my soul so that I’m more motivated to do what I love every day and get up taking inspired action.
I don’t think that’s too much to ask for frankly, do you?
What do you want or need to really be YOUR BEST SELF?
- Self worth / Confidence
- Self Care / Health
- Relationships / Friendships
- Environment / Surroundings / Home
- Love / Passion / Purpose
- Faith / Spirituality
- Values / Must Haves
Don’t undervalue what you really need, list out what’s important to you and what would FEED you and your soul, your passion, your purpose more, etc. What tanks do you think you need to fill? What activities will help you fill them?
Then go to your calendar and figure out how to fit it all in – seriously go do this now or you never will.
