I woke up Saturday morning with my to do list running through my head. I often only have weekends to get “me” things done…and every week that list starts with a couple of things and grows to about 20 by the time Saturday rolls around.
This Saturday, I was also invited to an event, one that promised to discuss the mind-body connection, renewal of the mind, and breaking old patterns. All of these things I need as I move forward trying to build my business.
I wake up most days tired, not only from my girls not sleeping through the night, but from my mind racing of all the things I want to do, beyond my regular to do list.
Getting there was another issue, having to get some cleaning done before I left the house. I was a few minutes late, but right in time to get into it.
One of the activities we did was to figure out what was standing in our own way. What mental blocks kept us from making progress. What do we need to release in order to add more to our lives? The group list ended up something like this:
Resentment – Jealousy – Hurt – Fear – Worthlessness – Procrastination – Mistrust – Anger – Sadness – Judgment – Meekness – Despair – Unhappiness – Past – Debt – Impatience – Absence – Addiction – Loneliness – Wandering – Pity – Last
Love – Trust – Value – Integrity – Courage – Happiness – Peace – Joy – Strength – Freedom – Respect – Patience – Comfort – Acceptance – Honesty – Kindness – Presence – First
What I noticed was that no one wanted success, wealth or fame! Life has broken many of us and we aren’t able to get past our past.
I used to work for a business development company and they would say
The number one reason that a business doesn’t grow is because
the owner fails to get out of their own way. Is that you? Click to Share
For others, their past is not getting in their way, but they are not as productive as they could be. The session continued discussing all of the things we have to do each day. How many of these are needs and how many are wants? How many will we actually get to in one day?
You can start off tomorrow being more productive. Here are some tips to help you!
