Time may be money, but money can’t buy time. Only energy can.
That’s why I want pull back the curtain a little bit and share something more personal.
I was recently talking with Marisa, who worked on Wall Street for 11 years and now combines her work at a big company in New York with her own business, and she mentioned how stressful working is at companies of that size. So stressful that almost all of her female colleagues are on anti-depressants.
“To keep the edge off,” she explained to me when she saw the look on my face. Marisa asked me a question that made me think…
Actually I smiled, hearing her question. Marisa and I are building a valuable partnership to address anxiety and insecurity as part of self-care. But she didn’t know yet that I have my strategies for generating energy, good mood and more self-esteem in a very natural way and in record time.
More on that later…
The universal problem that most professionals have as soon as they slow down is…
They don’t have the energy to really enjoy their quality time with their loved ones because… as soon as they push their “pause” button, they crash. That’s what happened to me too every year during my vacations before I completely crashed and burned in 2005.
I don’t know about you, but it’s pretty common that it takes a week or longer to get over some unexpected summer virus that has been waiting for your weak moment to have a blast. I remember so well that by the time I had to go back to work, “my time” was gone and I had to jump back into the rat race, still feeling exhausted and not ready to start working again (back then, I blamed my vacation for it…)
All this while the 1 thing that we should prioritize and dive into is taking time to ourselves daily for some loving self-care and to reflect upon what really matters in our lives, how we can do more of what we love doing and what exactly that would be. Once our own vitality is up to date, it’s so much easier to engage to our family and loved ones. Time is the one thing we can never get back once it’s gone…
Energy is our most valuable resource to do just that, to create more time in our day for what and whom we love, to get everything out of our precious time and enjoying that priceless wealth.
We can gain energy –or lose it- from so many different aspects in our lives. Our food, the way we think, the way we feel, our relationships, our work… It’s our choice. Not always easy to make the right ones, is it?
Over the past 6 years I have mastered the art of “generating more quality energy.”
Before you go into your next summer, I want to take you on a journey that will help you create that kind of energy, self-confidence and feel-good every day so you can spend more quality time with the people that matter most to you.
I’ve never done this before, and I’m experiencing sa wee bit of resistance in bringing this up now because I know that you are busy and I don’t want to be “another” distraction in your inbox. I want to make sure that what I put out into the world is valuable and actual helps entrepreneurs like you truly enjoy their work and time off.
I have some ideas on how I can give you energy –resulting in getting more time- in this next season so you can spend it doing what you love to do most, with whom you love the most. However, that’ll have to wait till next time…
P.S. I’ll be back with more details in a couple of days. But until then, tell me in the comment area below what you are most excited about your next vacation or travel time and any goals you already have in mind with the energy that’s coming your way.
