In order to achieve the big goals you have you must stop and smell the roses once in a while. It may feel like you don’t have the time to enjoy life because there is an endless amount of things to get done on your to do list. It may feel counterintuitive to flow and create and put in some self care time for yourself. It’s not. In fact the opposite is true. Don’t fall into the story most people get caught in, “Once I achieve ‘x’ then I will feel ‘y positive emotion’.” You must flip the equation so instead of achieving to be happy …. you happily achieve. Start from abundance, flow and creativity and you can still hustle and work towards your goals. Here’s what will happen:
- You will achieve them with more joy and effectiveness
- You will realize some of the goals you had you actually didn’t want, they were just escapes to distract you from focusing on what you truly want because of fear of being in that state of abundance and flow
- You will be more fulfilled
Remember life is about fulfillment and giving back, whatever that means to you. You achieve and grow so you can lead a life of love, contribution and fulfillment.
