I’ve shared this before and it’s from one of those aha moments we have when we finally “get it.” My coach calls them Bruce Lee moments. They don’t necessarily come from Bruce Lee, but they still create an impact in our lives to help us move forward.
Here is an example of a Bruce Lee quote that has really resonated with me “I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.”
If you know me, you know one of my mantras is “keep it simple, master the basics.”
But I wasn’t always this way. I used to pride myself in taking on so many tasks, challenges, clients, classes, certifications, etc.
Between full-time work, full-time school, getting married, having kiddos, running a business, figure competitions, Spartan races, even a triathlon, and everything in between, I was ALL IN!!
I was THE BEST (in my opinion of course, hence the perfectionism mentality I talked about yesterday) at multi-tasking! What happened? TOTAL BURNOUT. It was only a matter of time for me to be running on all cylinders for so long that this would happen.
Something else happened. When the events ended, the challenges ended, the ALL IN training ended. I could quickly see how when so many people finish a challenge, they revert back to their old habits. There was a feeling of “now what?” It was always go, go, go, go and wondering if there was going to be a time to just BE.
Once on got CLEAR and FOCUSED on what I wanted to achieve for my LIFE, then I could work backwards and narrow things down to fit my lifestyle, family, goals and really live life by design. It’s been so refreshing to be able to wake up and enjoy without having worry, anxiety, stress and seriousness about everything!
But I also have to tell you, even when things started to unfold like I wanted, I went through a grieving process of what my life WAS like, of WHO I was.
Realizing that my identity was wrapped up in the physical things my body could do and caught up on what I couldn’t do due to a chronic injury.
How do you get peace of mind from something like that?
How do you move away from the constant grind?
How do you find simplicity in the ever chaotic and busy world?
How do I fit it all in?
What if I don’t get it right or it isn’t perfect?
Does any of this relate to you?
Send me a message if it does.
Those are the questions we’ll be looking at during our Nourish Your Purpose Now lesson tomorrow evening.
