Your mission, should you choose to accept it…
Your mission is to think about what your life really needs to look like in order for you to feasibly give your business the time it deserves, and maintain your sanity.
And then take that a step further, by taking actions toward your dream life. You deserve to succeed, to have a successful business and to have some time to yourself. And I know that your loved ones want you to succeed as well, just the same as you want them to succeed.
Why you need to do it:
You do not have to be super woman or super man, there are no prizes for being a martyr.
Boy do I wish I learnt this lesson a long long time ago. I used to run around doing everything for everyone, and this is hard to admit, but it made me feel good. But then I would feel resentful that I had to do everything.
And the truth is, people will let you go on doing everything. But when you finally do put yourself first, they won’t like you any less I promise, and they will probably congratulate you. If you do get push back, remember this “those who benefited from you being a walkover are do not have your best interests at heart”.
When you are better supported you will get more done in your business and make more money to pay for the help you need. And, bonus, you will feel great.
What you actually need to do:
Ok, are you ready? Let’s go!
1. Watch the video above.
2. Grab your highlighters and your Brain Dump activity from lesson one and think about all the tasks that can be completed by someone else and highlight those suckers nice and bold.
3. Write yourself an action plan for getting the support you need: hire cleaners, gardeners etc; book childcare; and meet with your family to discuss dividing up jobs.
4. Take some quiet time to journal if your fears around letting go of control are trying to sabotage you. I can only say here, that I was the WORST control freak ever, and if I can do it darling, so can you. I promise it all works out ok an you won’t stop breathing.
