Many game changers’ believe that hard work pays off and grinding until you can’t stay awake is awesome. Jumping into this lifestyle is common and the belief that the end justifies the means. Many people are ready to team up with anyone as long as this relationship brings money and power. These people find relaxing waste of time and constantly live under pressure - the pressure to succeed, to prove their power and their ability to be more than the rest. These people never let go and stop looking for more and doing more. Because they never feel like they are great enough and their life is great where they are now. The truth is that the only moment we have - is the present one.
This is not surprising, because we live in a society that teaches us that success is the end goal and we should succeed at any costs. As much as I truly believe and practice hard work combined with consistency, I do trust in learning to let go and unwind. The quality of life is not measured only by money, power, success and professional accomplishments. Many people have it all first look and feel miserable, scared and angry. These negative emotions, bitterness and constant work until too late, too often create the so called ‘’burnout’’. The professionals who are workaholics and practice work until you cannot stay awake are terrified by the ‘’burnout’’.
Everybody fears the ‘’burnout’’, but what is to be feared is our inability to truly appreciate ourselves and take care for ourselves. Because ‘’burnout’’, never mind if it is physical, mental or spiritual, is purely a result of not paying attention to yourself for way too long. Yes, life is stressful and full with challenges, this is inevitable fact. But you are the only person who can invest in yourself and learn to let go. If you don’t, sooner or later, you will feel this in a painful manner.
I will challenge you not as a coach but as a person, who challenges myself everyday to find my own balance between quest for success and learn how to let go of what I cannot change. Learning to unwind, what is not in your own control, is one of the hardest things to do when old habits and fears take over. And they sure do moment by moment that is the main reason why a few people own themselves and navigate their mental focus. But if you want to live an extraordinary life and be extraordinary, you need to learn how to do it for yourself.
There are a few simple ways that will get you closer to your real self - strong, courageous and full with love. For example, working out, spending time with friends, practicing yoga, meditating and simply spending time in the nature are a great ways to unwind. As every hard change, this won’t happen overnight, but if you don’t invest in your biggest life project -YOURSELF - no one else will do it for you. Find your ways to reduce the tension and feel more at ease, trusting the process of life and letting go.
