I wanted to share an interesting experience I had while being sick. It was a rare day for me to feel under the weather, but it gave me a chance to observe something important about #entrepreneurlife.
Despite starting my day with productive habits inspired by "Atomic Habits," my physical condition affected my mindset. I was determined to fight the virus and listened to my body, making the conscious decision to rest and stay in bed. I took advantage of my control over my time and energy, without feeling guilty about it.
I wondered if others experienced similar mood shifts. By midday, I felt good about how I was conserving my energy because pushing myself when I felt unwell didn't align with my philosophy of being the CEO of my life, practicing The Curvy Hustle Ways. I had important plans and commitments coming up, and I needed to be well for them.
However, something interesting happened around 5:30 pm. Perhaps you can relate as a strong person who struggles with perfectionism as a safety net. Suddenly, negative thoughts crept in, telling me I was unproductive and too lazy to make the impact I desired in women's leadership and social equity. Where did that come from?
Despite the alignment between my body and mind earlier in the day, I found myself in a downward spiral emotionally, mentally, and physically. In my vlog, I discuss the three steps I took to reframe my mindset and protect my self-awareness throughout the process. It's crucial to understand that as a successful business owner and founder of a mission or ministry, you need to develop the ability to witness and understand your own fluctuations and moods.
According to Vedic wisdom, we are influenced by natural forces, and as a leader, it's our responsibility to identify and navigate those forces. The most empowering thing you can do is step back, witness yourself, and calmly redirect your energy in a different direction.
I wanted to emphasize this concept and encourage you to embody excellence, as constant evolution and growth are part of the journey.
