been. If you’re a salesperson, make more calls or appointments in a week than you ever have. PUSH yourself to new levels of focus and effort. Will this require some discipline? Absolutely! In fact, it will actually hurt a little. But that kind of pain is temporary and if you’ll work through it, the growth in your life and your pocketbook will make you forget that pain quickly. Life Feeding If all you do is push with no recovery, growth does not occur. Quite the opposite, in fact. Once you’ve stretched your limits, it is important to feed your mind and your life just like you eat to replenish your strength. Some “recovery tips” for your Life:
- Celebrate your victories. When something goes right, when your “pushing beyond” actually gets the results you desire, enjoy it for a little while! Reward your wins and you get charged up to want more of them.
- Take time for yourself – by yourself and with those you love. Quiet time alone for a little bit each week is absolutely necessary to recharge your batteries. Just as important is quality time with family or those you care about. This is often the first thing a busy professional sacrifices, which is why so many are burned out. It doesn’t need to be tons of time, but it has to be some.
- Feed your mind systematically. The practice of reading an inspiring or uplifting book for 15-30 minutes daily is absolutely the most refreshing and life-changing habit you can develop.
If you want to grow, you must have BOTH the workout and the recovery time. Find the balance and growth is inevitable. Not easy, but inevitable. Be Free! Roger Seip Instructor
