This video below is a fascinating and inspiring TED talk that I had to share. It's about how our body language affects how we feel about ourselves as opposed to how we are affecting our relationships with others. Can something as simple as how we hold our heads affect how powerful or effective we feel? Watch and see....
What do you do when you feel exhausted? You want this great career. You want this great life. You are trying really, really hard to make it happen. However, you get to the point where you feel like you are in the cage of your "future" life.
I say "future" life because that is essentially what it is. You aren't working hard for today, are you? No. You are putting in the blood, sweat and tears to see that "SOMEDAY!" moment.
The problem with this is that this constant working towards the future can be very draining. Right now, I am trying to figure out how to grown my business, while completing my four-year degree, while raising four children, while trying to not drive my boyfriend completely insane. So, I lose steam often. I get inspired. I push myself to unforeseen limits. Then I flatline. You maybe living with some version of this chaos so here is what I am trying out:
This is a sticky note that I taped in front of me at my desk.
I am one of those girls. I protect myself from the world first. So, I usually have to look at this sticky note and ask myself...are you protecting yourself from something you need to do or be...or are you empowering yourself to be those things that you need to do or be?
It's about meaningful work that means something to YOU.
