How to get out of the busyholic rut and enjoy life
I’d love to, but I’m too busy is an all-too-common internal dialogue that keeps us from doing what we’d love to be doing. Committing too much precious time for responsibilities and obligations is a real life-suck. Do you every think, gee if I could only prioritize and manage my time, life would be so much better…
Some common things we think we need to do to make life better include:
Nope, it’s simply not true. It may sound counterintuitive, but follow me. We think we need to say no in order to create space in our life for the good stuff. Wrong. We don’t need to learn how to say no; we have known how to say ‘no’ since the age of 2. What we really need to develop is a skill for saying YES! When you say YES! to what you really want in life, that’s when you experience uplift, momentum, joy and fulfillment.
I’m going to share with you a secret to success:
Yes, it really is that simple.
Time management and prioritizing are two myths that get in the way of success. We often think if I discover the right set of time management tactics, putting the pieces of the puzzle in just the right places or, prioritizing them properly, I’ll be productive, efficient, and happy.
What if you didn’t need to manage anything?
How excited does anyone get when they say “Time Management”? UGH! Seriously, say it to yourself right now. Time Management. It’s a real downer right?
Now say to yourself I am willing. Hmmm, that has a different ring to it doesn’t it? Notice that. It’s important.
Now put the magic word ‘Nevertheless’ in front of it.
Nevertheless, I am willing
Wow! There’s power.
‘Nevertheless, I am willing’ is a key mindset tool to saying YES! to you, your life, and what matters.
See if any of these ring true for you:
On my day off I have a list of things I must do before I can play or rest. I rarely get to the ‘play and rest’ part.
I’m tired much of the time, but can’t seem to get to sleep or stay asleep.
I’m not spending enough quality time with those I love or the activities I enjoy.
I want to have life goals, but I just can’t think about them right now.
Whether your target is spending time with a loved one, a hobby you enjoy, changing careers, building your business, or taking care of yourself; the simple mindset tool, nevertheless, I am willing can create the space and path to experiencing more and more of what you want.
Being willing is your great superpower when combined with a meaningful action or a goal. When you learn to focus your attention on what has meaning, you are unstoppable, no matter what shows up. Nevertheless, I am willing is a game changer.
The voice inside your head is usually the one that creates a barrier to what you want. It’s the mind saying I’m too busy or it’s a stupid idea or they don’t have time or nobody will like it or why am I even bothering, I’m no good at this.
When we can hear that voice, notice it, pause, and nevertheless be willing to take one small step forward. This is where the magic happens.
When nevertheless, you are willing, your brain naturally highlights opportunities to take action on what is important while setting aside that which is not important. When we see what’s important to us and can shift our focus on what does matter, the things that don’t matter naturally fall away.
When we focus our energy on areas of life that have meaning, that’s where we experience joy, fulfillment, accomplishment, success and happiness.
As a coach I help people discover what is important, move through normal stopping points, and
create success. It’s easy to get mired and tangled in the crazy web we’ve created in our head and in our lives. Get un-stuck, un-busy and get clear so you can get on with what you’ve been waiting for far too long. Coaching can help you see clearly so the road to success is open and easy to travel.
Your success is unique to you, just like your voice or fingerprint. I offer complimentary discovery sessions so you can check out and see if coaching is a fit for you now or in the future.
I look forward to supporting your growth and success.
