Congratulations, everybody! We’ve almost reached the end of 2021. Let’s take a minute to look back over the past twelve months and recognize how much we’ve learned,
Put Yourself in Your Life’s & Business’s Driver’s Seat: Do you want to be a Passenger or do you want to take the Driver Seat?
Becoming successful at driving your life and business follows a similar process to the one you took to learn how to drive your car. There are probably people who are quite willing to drive your life and business if you let them. Only you can decide that you don’t want to be out of control anymore. Push aside or overcome your fears to get in your driver’s seat.
Getting in the driver’s seat means that you have decided what gives your life purpose and meaning. You know what you need to do for an authentic, happy existence. Take ownership of the car; take ownership of the road. Embrace your life and go full throttle on the highway. Let’s see how you can do it!
What would happen if you took the time to choose what you wanted in life rather than letting life choose it for you?
We live in an age where self-care has become a necessity. Whether it’s waking up early for that yoga class, to meditate or hitting the gym after a day at the office, we must value our minds and bodies and what we put in them, if we are to be in the driver’s seat of our life and become resilient to life’s ups and downs.
We must take full responsibility for our life. When you are busy, feeling hurried or stressed, you are likely to go through your days reacting to what is happening around you. It is called chasing your to-do list.
This is a big mistake, because, as long as you are reacting, you aren’t setting the direction of your day. You aren’t being proactive, and you aren’t in charge. Quite simply, when you are reacting, you aren’t in the driver’s seat of your life, you are in the passenger seat!. When this happens, life balance and self-care go out the window and you aren’t likely to feel like you’re achieving much. In fact, you might not even be sure what your goals and priorities really are.
Once you realize that you’re writing your life story every day with your thoughts, actions, and where you focus your attention – you’ll feel immensely powerful, because now you can change that story by making conscious decisions that work better for you.
You have to want it!
Imagine this: When you didn’t know how to drive, you wanted to. You really wanted to. You knew that not knowing how to drive kept you dependent on others to get anywhere. It prevented you from getting to places and people you wanted to see. It might even have kept you poor because you couldn’t get to a job reliably. At some point, you were sick of not being able to drive. You were so motivated, you pushed aside or got over whatever fears you had about being in the driver’s seat and took charge.
Becoming successful at driving your life follows a similar process. There are probably people who are quite willing to drive your life if you let them. Only you can decide that you don’t want to be out of control anymore. Push aside or overcome your fears to get in your driver’s seat.
How to put yourself in your Business's driver seat? Pause, Breathe, Recharge!
We’ve all been there — drowning in an ocean of work, to do lists and heading towards burnout. There’s too much to do, so we easily work nights and weekends, especially when it comes to our own business. That’s fine if you’re working against an immovable deadline, but don’t make a habit out of it.
Think that, when it comes to your employees. You don’t want them to experience symptoms of poor sleep, poor nutrition, lack of quality time with loved ones, and disengagement, because that will make them less productive and unsatisfied with their career. So why would you let it happen to you? If you’re feeling burned out, remedy it. Learn to delegate and take time off to do something you care about. Just make sure you pause, breathe, and recharge along the way. Just remember: You are in the driver’s seat of your business too, and you are in control.
Can you do it on your own? Yes! But, a little help goes a long way!
At My Nu Ways! we’ve built all our Coaching & Consulting Programs based on the idea of getting YOU to be the driver of your own life, decision and career or business! Will we solve your situation for you? No – You will solve it yourself! 8 out of 10 people who opt for coaching, succeed in getting where they want to get. Just like a driving instructor would, we will help you reveal this superpower in you!
To learn to drive, you either took a driver’s education class or got a parent or adult friend to take you on the road. You were willing to take instruction because you understood that there was more to learn than just how to turn the key. You accepted the expertise of someone who was in your spot a long time ago, and got to do what you were willing to learn!
People who are successful in life do just that. You don’t have to pretend to know it all when you don’t. Find yourself a coach or a mentor that can assist you.
The way to get back into the driver’s seat of your life is to create a life strategy.
If you want to get the most out of your money you create a financial strategy. The same is true for your life and your business. If you want to get the most out of your life and success in your business life you need to create a strategy.
A sound life strategy can be described as a house. The bottom foundation of your house is your personal foundation. The stronger it is, the less likely your house/life will crumble under stress. The four cornerstones of your house/life are:
– clarity of what your life is like now
– clarity of what you want your life to be
– cleaning up unfinished business from you past
– clarity of the beliefs and attitudes that may or may not be serving you
You may not be able to change what gets thrown at you in life, but you can learn the skills, tools, strategies to manage them better both mentally and physically. And we are here to support you! We help Small Business Owners, Start-Ups, Entrepreneurs, Freelancer & Sole Traders to achieve what they want in their business and personal lives!
If running your business and balancing your life feel far too often like fumbling around in the dark, our programs serve as your flashlight. Understand the WHY and WHAT – and the HOW will take care of itself!
