Let’s be real:
Those lonely-wolf stories are highly edited to glorify someone’s ego.
The fine folks who REALLY leave a huge legacy behind know that true success relies on being in relationship with others. And not just any kind of relationship.
They work in collectives, bands and swarms of selected, like-minded peers.
They know that the right community will create natural flow. So they repeatedly surround themselves with people who share their challenges. Because consistently hearing that their challenges are a normal part of the journey frees them up to take the next step.
So, let’s be clear from the get-go: Whatever you’re dealing with in your business and life right now, you are NOT the only one facing these problems.
It’s 100 % doable (heck, even NECESSARY!) that you have the kind of “free” time that lets you choose what you’ll be doing. Whether that’s having fun with family or friends, starting with upcycled origami, working more strategically on your business, developing a new offer for your most devoted customers — or a combination of those things.
Managing your own energy, managing your emotions: this kind of self-mastery absolutely requires you to step away from the daily “grind”. Sorry if we’re preaching to the converted: you probably know this.
But we also know that enjoying time off takes practice. It’s way too common for people like you to spend the whole vacation on high alert, checking your inbox five times a day and thinking of all the things that could go wrong.
