Hey there. It’s been a while. I hope you can forgive me for that. There’s been a lot happening in my world!
Between working on some pretty exciting things behind the scenes for my business and packing up my life in the United States and moving back to my homeland of Canada, I’ve had quite a bit on my plate.
That’s not to say all of these changes aren’t amazing. They’ve just taken up most of my focus and energy. I’m sure you can relate. All of this happening though, has given me the opportunity to take a step back, observe and take stock in how I tend to handle these busy times in my life and I wanted to give a little bit of an update on my personal journey over the last month or so.
I had a realization here over the last month–an epiphany–and thought I would share. I think you will relate.
That lightbulb moment was about the mentorship: as a concept. How often is it that we find ourselves questioning our decisions?
Where did I go wrong?
How could I have done this differently?
And then, on the flipside, questioning…
What do I do next?
Is there a solution?
And all the while, we look for guidance, we look for advice: mentorship–help give us confidence to walk in the right direction.
We all have similar daily issues. We wake up in the morning and either get out of the right side or the wrong side of bed. Sometimes we don’t get out of bed at all. In other words, we bound out of bed inspired, motivated, and driven–ready to take on the day or we don’t.
Everyday that cycle repeats itself and it’s up to us to control it. We can shift our mindsets–to mentor ourselves–to ensure the days we bounce out of bed outweigh the days we struggle to get our feet to touch the floor.
Our brains have this amazing ability to cleanse. The psyche refreshes itself overnight, meaning that while you sleep, your brain resets itself. This is incredible.
Tomorrow you can start again.
WAKEUP inspired and refreshed. Take another crack at it.
I’ve talked so many times about creating your own individual reality. How do we begin to create our dream life? We go to bed with and hopefully wake up holding that vision that carries us through the next day. But it doesn’t always work that way. There are a million different factors that either restrict us, pull us back, contract us, steal our energy, or cause us to question and doubt ourselves. Things that rob our energy. Sometimes the feeling is almost like the life is being sucked from you, “energy sucks,” I call them. These relationships don’t serve you.
We’re all on this journey of entrepreneurship and even more than entrepreneurship– self-discovery. How do we pinpoint what is most importance to us?
Well, we can start by asking some questions:
What do I do next?
What is the answer?
What is the solution?
And how do you even begin to answer them?
Educate yourself. Be relentless in your pursuit of shining light on the darkness. Find your people. Find mentors. Find those individuals who act as a mirror, those people who don’t let you hide from the difficult truths of self-discovery.
The only reason I am where I am today is because of the help, support, guidance, advice, and occasional ass kicking I got from my many mentors along my journey.
That’s the important thing to remember.
None of us has to go it alone, nor should we. Why carry the weight of the world on your shoulders when you can have a few extra sets of hands to balance some of that weight?
We’re all given the same 24 hour cycle. Wake up, live life, go to sleep, repeat.
We have a choice, every morning.
Right side of the bed or wrong side?
The answer isn’t always easy, but it’s always obvious. Make the RIGHT choice.
