Self-care is so buzzy right now. And don’t get me wrong, I love a self-care spa day! But I also find myself rolling my eyes at how many people use it as an excuse to not get stuff done.
Listen up! You are not gonna just self-care your way to success, my friend.
Yes! self care is important.
You should find regular rhythms of rest. ⠀You should feed your soul. ⠀You should stay present and breathe into the moment. ⠀Destress, decompress. ⠀Do the inner work. ⠀Focus on your mindset and mental wellness. ⠀Meditate. ⠀Heal your inner child. ⠀Silence the inner critic.⠀Do all the things.
And I’m the first one to tell my clients to take a nap. But if you don’t move beyond that, what are we even doing it all for?
Here’s something I’ve noticed (mostly with women clients, but men – you are not exempt).
People get to the point where they just LOVE doing the inner work of getting to know themselves. It’s liberating. It’s exciting. It’s enlightening.
But it can also keep you stuck if you let it.
You can work on yourself so much that it becomes a distraction!
Its important to do the inner work. Believe me – it’s 100% necessary. I do it. I work with my clients to do it. But if you wanna get somewhere with your business, the inner work should be translating into outer action.
The inner work is supposed to make you more confident, more trusting of yourself, more sure of your calling. It should be inspiring, empowering, and action oriented.
Not lead you down a never ending spiral of trying to re-live every moment of your childhood to figure out what went wrong and why.
Self-care is a part of a 360 strategy. It is NOT a strategy all to itself.
Don’t get so focused on the inner that you neglect the service you were put on this planet to do.
The inner healing is never meant to be just for you. There are probably thousands who can benefit from it 😊
