Easy Yet Enlightening
When was the last time you paused to catch up with yourself? You know, slowed down to see the entirety of what you have accomplished, feel it fully, and appreciate all your efforts and high flying results in business, leadership or life.
If it's been quite a while since you've even thought to do this, you are not alone. Smart women leaders, executives/professionals and entrepreneurs are so busy moving on to the next big challenge that they rarely stop to savor the fullness of their achievements.
Focusing on improving performance in themselves, their teams, and their businesses or organizations without waiting to inhale their successes keeps them from feeling satisfied or fulfilled.
Don't let this happen to you! Instead, use this simple practice to experience the satisfaction and fulfillment you have worked so hard to have.
Give yourself a few precious moments in a quiet place where you will not be disturbed. Jot down your responses to 3 questions about your work/business, leadership or life.
Where are you now that is better than where you were 9-6-3 months ago?
What have you accomplished to arrive at this once desired place?
How are you celebrating this progress and savoring your wins?
Without re-reading them, put your answers away for a few days. Then find a time and place to sit quietly with your favorite drink and read what you've written.
As you sip refreshing tea or a smoothie or lemonade, drink in the progress and wins you have won.
Savor the moments you are experiencing as a result of your achievements. Let the sweet taste of satisfaction and fulfillment flow into your heart and seep into your bones.
Feel how in sync you are. Now in this clear state of presence you are ready to engage in greater accomplishments and enjoy more welcomed progress.
