Do something different

Life is here to be enjoyed, savoured and explored. We are here to thrive not simply survive. You deserve to be healthy and happy. Our ego/primitive brain does not care if we are happy or thriving. All it wants is for you to survive and reproduce – those basic selfish gene necessities. Other parts of self want us to thrive, want us to be happy, want us to fulfil your dreams. 

Being in my greenhouse is a way to help me start a new habit of having more time away from my business. I have worked hard to create the life I have and the business I have however a part of me has forgotten how to have fun. With less opportunity to see people and go places over the past 12 months, I had realised a part of me had started to pull me back to an old habit of over-working. Because I continue to work on my mindset, I have been able to deal with this challenge with compassion and curiosity and to implement positive change quite quickly. 

“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” Rita Mae Brown

“If you want something different, you are going to have to do something different.” Jack Canfield.

I love these two quotes and they act as great reminders for a part of me that likes to get stuck in the same comfortable place. My mindset work and my meditation practice are the major players in my ability to move forward in my life and business. Compassion, curiosity and courage allow different parts of self to stand up for what they want and for me to stay aligned with my mission, my purpose. 

At the points where I start to become exhausted, my ego/primitive brain takes me back to old familiar habits like over-working and forgetting to have fun. These habits act as my barometer and indicator that if they show up it’s time to take a step back.

On my mindset journey, a part of me discovered quite early on, the amazing wins you get when you work on self. With my fitness business, I had all the strategy; or at least a part of me thought I did 😉 This part also believed I had everything sorted and if I kept working hard then everything would fall into place. However, the harder I worked, the harder it became, and I ended up being ill and losing the love for what I did. I lost clarity and focus; nothing seemed to be bringing the numbers in. Within weeks of starting to work on my mindset, I saw positive changes: more clients, more money, more clarity. I had been doing the same thing over and over but expecting different results; however, when I did something different (working on my mindset) things fell into place.

This is why I am so passionate about working with business owners in the fitness, health and wellness industry. I want them to know there is another way to do things. You can run your business on your terms and have the life you want – not a dream that someone else sold you. You can thrive.
