3 Reasons To Walk Away From Your Business

2 comments

TIME to walk away

Here I am at 8:30pm, on a Tuesday night writing my blog. You want to know why I’m doing this? Because I can. As long as I have a laptop, my iPad or my smart phone, I can reply to e-mails, post on my FB business page and even send out newsletters and updates to my e-mail list. Why am I doing this? Again, because I can.

It’s all too easy to work at all times of the day and night. I can’t tell you how many times I hear my clients tell me that the last thing they do at night and when they wake up is to check their e-mail. Crazy! I bet you don’t do that … DO YOU?

I know, it’s easy to do and I am guilty of it at times myself. Especially when I have a course that is launching or some collaboration, or sometimes, because I’m avoiding what I should really be doing {whatever that may be at the moment}.

So I’m inviting you to walk away from your business in the morning, at night and during times when you are connecting with people … LIVE and in person. And here’s why:

  • We thrive on human connection. To fill your own heart with the love and human connection that you need in your life, you must connect face-to-face and eye-to-eye with the people you love most. We are hard-wired to be in community. I LOVE my Facebook community, but there’s nothing like sitting across from a dear soul and talking, laughing and sharing the joys of life.
  • Inspiration and brilliant A-HA moments come when your doing things that are NOT work related. There are a bunch of brain studies that prove this, but I won’t go into them here. Just use your own life as an example. When are you most inspired by new ideas? Is it when you’re sitting in front of your laptop? I bet it’s not.
  • You’re no good to anyone when your overwhelmed, tired and sick. So many entrepreneurs assume that overwork and overwhelm are par-for-the-course when it comes to building a business. And while it takes a shitload of courage, inner-fortitude and straight-up discipline, succeeding in life and business simply does NOT have to include getting sick.

So I say WALK AWAY and play, laugh, dance, sing. Remind yourself WHY you started your business in the first place. For me Self-Care has become a lifestyle, not just a self-help concept. I embrace the Self-Care philosophy as a business practice and I’m passionate about teaching others to do the same. Because I KNOW that your work here on this planet is important, and in order for you to do that, you must be well, thriving and actually enjoy the process of creating your dream.

    Oh Elena, you caught me red handed! I’ve slipped into a habit of checking email and FB first thing in the morning and last thing at night. I need a 21 day challenge just to create a 30 minute buffer in the morning between waking up and looking at my phone. I mean, seriously, what’s so important?

    NNEKA,

    I know it girl! You’re not alone. We are all so connected to our smart phones. I am guilty myself. But, the payoff for walking away at those times is amazing.

    Will you take the challenge to unplug?

    Let me know if you do ;))
