Are you ready to have your best year ever? I hope so!

I know one thing I want to do more of is to put ME and my family first when it comes to my planning, my business and my calendar, how about you?

My husband Jason and I just returned from a really relaxing 9 day vacation in Mexico and we couldn’t have taken that if we hadn’t planned far in advance. You see, we have his ex-wife to deal with on trading days for custody and you can imagine a longer term getaway, either with Riley or without, takes a bit of negotiation in this situation. Plus we have to coordinate dog sitters, all the travel itself, pre-pay, manage my clients, my team and more. And to boot, we decide to sell our house and buy a new house in the process… a last minute decision at Thanksgiving but we found a great new, bigger home and it motivated us to get our current house ready to sell too.

Many people with lots on their plate, even just this amount of things, may not take the time or effort to invest into planning a vacation but we did. We know that getting away alone really rejuvenates us as a couple, as business professionals and just renews our energy and spirit.

So the biggest thing we do to put US first is to make sure we plan ahead to take vacations each year. Typically we do one with Riley (our now 8 year old, soon to be 9) and one without. The second thing is I try to cut down on evening functions that I attend so we can have dinner together and family time for the short amount of time we have together each day.

It’s probably time you put YOU FIRST more often as well I would imagine…right? 

When’s the last time you truly made decisions based on putting yourself first?

What would you add back into your day, week, month or year if you could waive a magic wand right now?

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?

Areas to Consider When Connecting With Yourself:

  • 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.

To find out more about that exercise to discover YOUR FOUR TANKS and for other support around working through this stuff, check out my 3 part Training that I did around the topic of my book, Love Yourself Successful, A Woman’s Step-by-Step Guide to Taking Charge of Your Life and Designing the Business of Your Dreams at Oh there are a TON of free bonuses on this page right now…I recently did an interview where I offered this training plus bonuses for just $97 so I’m posting this today so you can have access to this deal too – limited time though!
