Look, maybe I don’t know you, but I’m going to go ahead and make a wild guess: you’re stressed.
How do I know? Because one day, I stopped to look at my life, and it dawned on me that everyone was…overwhelmed. Somewhere among the babies, the houses, the jobs, the businesses, the posting on social media, and the school activities, we had lost our sanity. We had absolutely ZERO chill.
And the worst part? We were wearing our stress like a badge of honor! We were all so proud of how messy our lives had become. We were slaves to the grind. Hustle culture had permeated every aspect of our lives.
I knew we needed a hustle detox, so in early September, I kicked off my new mindset coaching business with The ProducCHILLvity Challenge, a free 4-day challenge for my subscribers comprised of daily emails, videos, and worksheets.
- Progress over perfection;
- Working in flow versus making things harder;
- Focusing on inspired action rather than on meaningless tasks;
- Gaining MORE (money, time, energy, whatever— get greedy!) by doing less; and
- Most importantly, quieting that NOISE in your brain in order to help you make space for the things that actually matter.
Success – true goal-smashing, fire in your belly, peace in your heart success – requires two things: space and inspired action. You cannot have one without the other. You need to quiet your mind and feel that discomfort in the stillness to really figure out what your gut is telling you. What fears are keeping you in place? What are you truly being called to do? What is leaving you feeling dissatisfied?
We are trained to believe that busy = important, so making space in your life may leave you with all kinds of feelings of inadequacy. That’s ok. Trust the process! The easier you keep things, the easier it is to assess what’s actually working, and what’s not – whether in your life or in your business.
Maybe you recognize that you’re overwhelmed, but you tell yourself that you HAVE to do it all. The truth is that we actually have an INCREDIBLE amount of choice in our day-to-day lives. You probably don’t HAVE TO do half the things you’re telling yourself you have to do. And even if you DO, that doesn’t mean you can’t do them less often, or differently, or at a different time, or in a better mood, etc.
Plus, when you stop feeling like you have to do things and start remembering that you choose to do them, you develop gratitude for the option you choose.
As women, we are inclined to “want it all” – mostly, I think, because we have spent our entire lives being told that we can’t have it. I LOVE the idea of having it all, and I am a firm believer that you can, indeed, have it all.
But we’ve lost touch with our intuition, with what actually makes us happy and why. We’ve started filling up our lives with tasks that keep us busy and make us feel important, hoping to quiet that nagging voice in our heads that tells us we’re not enough.
You cannot achieve success by doing all the things. You will get paralyzed by inaction. You will burn out. Your relationships and your health will suffer.
And what will happen? You’ll be forced to quit before you even give yourself a fighting chance. Or maybe you won’t, but you’ll end up with a life that’s filled to the brim with things you don’t actually want or need to do.
And I don’t want that for you. You deserve to have it all. You are enough, and you deserve to live a life that you love, filled with things that give you joy. You just need some clarity to identify what those things are and to make your wildest dreams come true.
