Many entrepreneurs no longer are willing to trade their success for their health, time with their families, or their personal life. People now believe more than ever that it’s important to feel success in all different areas of your life, not just in a professional setting. So, here are 5 ways to be healthy, wealthy, and wise across all aspects of your life!
1. Better Boundaries
If you don’t have good boundaries, you’re not going to make it far in entrepreneurship or in life. The most successful people in life are those that know the power of no. The first step to figure out what your boundaries are is to decide what your core values are as a person and in business. Once you set those standards you’ll be able to operate personally and professionally in the way that you want to. You’re then able to hold yourself accountable for your boundaries and not letting other things infringe on them. In the same sense, you will have to ask you friends and family to respect the same boundaries you do of the people that you work with so that you can be successful and productive in both areas.
2. Take Breaks
Work styles vary, but one thing is certain, getting up and getting away from your desk is important. Moving around helps to reset your energy level and stimulate new thoughts. It also gets your blood flowing which is good for the mind and the body. Make sure that at least one day of the week is reserved for a personal day. You have to disconnect for periods of time to rejuvenate your mind and body. Entrepreneurship is a marathon, not a sprint. If you don’t make time for yourself, you’ll end up burnt out. Take breaks and use the time to wisely reconnect to your creativity and passion.
3. Say What You Mean
Being an entrepreneur is hard work and there are times where you will want to agree to certain things to get by. That’s why KNOWING YOUR BOUNDARIES is so important. Know what you want and where you’re headed so that you can align your actions with your words. Most arguments and misunderstandings can trace their roots to bad communication. You may shy from being direct to avoid hurting someone’s feelings, but you need to find a way to have clear and direct communication.
4. Watch Your Mouth
Words are powerful. You need to make sure that what comes out of your mouth agrees with what you believe and where you want to go. It’s harder to take back something you didn’t mean than to speak your truth the first time and stand by it. Learning to say what you mean will improve your business and personal relationships and help ensure your boundaries stay in place and improve the quality of your communications.
Clarity in conversation can be very important, but so can clarity in your home, mind, and body. Keep yourself organized in every aspect of your life by spending the few extra moments a day it takes to clean up after yourself, eliminate clutter, and get organized. Too much clutter can lead to unproductive time looking for lost items. When you keep your home life organized your life in general will be more organized. It improves productivity. If there is one thing an entrepreneur needs, it’s MORE TIME! So, set yourself up for success in that regard.
