Doing What You Love, to Love More What You Do

Do More of What You LoveDoing What You Love, to Love More What You Do, sounds like a tricky title, but I did not find better words, to describe a recent experience that I want to share with you… Hope it’s valuable for you, and that it will help to Empower You and Improve Your Business.

To give you a bit of a backstory of what I do, I grow my Network Marketing Business, I support my husband in the growth of his business (it is ours, but to avoid confusions I refer to it as ‘his’)… I also take care of my property, I’m a Furbaby Mom, my Own Chef and the list goes on an on…

A few weeks back, I was feeling completely overwhelmed, tired and as much as I love what I do, I was not feeling so “into it” at the time.

I felt like I was “dragging” myself, instead of “looking forward to it”… if you are an Entrepreneur or a Small Biz Owner, you have probably experienced this at some point.



Doing What You Love!  (I Found What I Was Missing...)

It was around that time, when I attended a Workshop created by my dear friend Shanna, called “The Hidden Power of Self Portraiture’s” … during this Workshop, we explored in a very intimate, safe and empowering environment, those moments of our lives when we felt joyful, strong, loved and on top of the world.

Shanna created a fun, and simple system, that would help access those “feelings”, and bring them to the present moment if necessary.  As a result, we were able to change our Attitude, our Approach, and change our Mindset by Command. (To learn more about this, you must attend one of her awesome workshops!)

During that workshop I also had the opportunity to explore again my creative side.  I was inspired to draw a symbol using a technique learned ages ago (and I mean ages), and by the end of that session, I was feeling Energized and more Creative than ever, with an infinite number of ideas that I wanted to accomplish!

Here is my drawing… I hadn’t done this in years so please be kind 🙂

Doing What You Love

Doing What You Love



What Happened Next...

The next following days, I realized that I wasn’t dragging myself anymore (yay!), my bubbly self had returned, and with that, the feeling that I WAS JAZZED, DOING WHAT I LOVE TO DO!

My business performance had improved as well, and it was then when it hit me. The Workshop had everything to do with it!  But how?



I Discovered...

I realized, that I had not dedicated enough time to do things I love, and that this had been going on for the past few months! There are aspects of myself that I had abandoned, and by taking that couple of hours to participate in that Workshop, I was nurturing those aspects, which translated into a better business performance.

See? as an Entrepreneur, you can fall into the trap of feeling guilty if you take some time to do “other things”… big mistake!!!!  It is necessary to slow down, to speed up!

You need to nurture Yourself, to nurture your Mind and your Spirituality to have a Thriving Business.  Your Business is a Direct Reflection of YOU.



What Do You Love to Do?

Today I make sure to include more often activities like those: I do attend 3 day seminars every 3 months and short ones every month or so.  I also make sure to include “small activities” during my day, that allow me to energize and to “recalibrate” . Those little Joyful moments, can be anything you enjoy doing!

You’ve probably notice I love my Capuccinos, making myself one, or getting one and sitting down for a few minutes to enjoy it, is one of “my things”.  Today I feel totally blessed. Doing more of what I love, not only allows me to love more what I do business wise, but has enabled me, to be a more loving person to those around me: my spouse, my friends and my customers.

If you feel like you’re having trouble defining what brings you joy, feel free to reach out, I might be able to help 🙂

Was sharing my experience helpful? If it was, I would greatly appreciate if you commented below and shared on Facebook.

With lots of appreciation,

P.S:  I shared some aspects of the process created by my dear friend and customer Shanna Paxton, owner of Shanna Paxton Photography.  If you want to participate in one of her Empowering Workshops, connect with her at http://shannapaxton.com/ .  If you are not local to us, let her know anyways, some Online Surprises are in the Making 🙂

Start Living Today: Very Important Notes You Can Use

My last Major Company Training was very unique.  Very different than any other Network Marketing Training I have ever attended.  It was mostly dedicated to Personal Development, but also, the way we are taught is unique.  Our Director of Training delivered through performances of different characters various messages to be applied in our daily life and business. At times very moving and at times very funny.  Being educated and entertained at the same time assures we don't forget the lessons.

One of these characters was a man on his dying bed... this man, starts to reflect about life on his final moments, and speaks about how we have to Start Living Today... here is what he said:

"If you know someone you haven't told them in a long time you love them, tell them...  how about you run out of time or they do, and you never have the chance?  Expressing how much we care to our loved ones and showing kindness to strangers can mean the world to them, and to us, as the day we part we will have no regrets.

The problem is you think you have more time... how many times we postpone our own dreams for tomorrow, and in doing so time goes by, and there comes a day when you are in your final moments and you realize you never made them come true because you always said "I'll do it tomorrow"

We spend so much time worrying... start living and stop worrying so much about tomorrow.

What's really important to you?... start living life to the fullest. Do you realize this life is the only shot?  What is really important to you?  What do you really want to do? What do you want to accomplish? Where do you want to go?

How are you treating people who love you?.... often we take people we love for granted.  Sometimes we don't treat them as well as they deserve... How are you treating your spouse? Your children?  your parents? Your friends?  Your pets and plants?  They all have a soul.

What if it was your last year?...How would you start living life if this year was the last one?  What would you do differently?

People go through life as if it was an obligation.  Start living now, the way you want to. What other people think is irrelevant.

We are all gonna go, be loving and caring.  Give everything you have today.  Someday there won't be tomorrow so make this day count"

... and then he closes his eyes and dies.

This performance was outstanding, so moving, a great reminder of how we should be living our lives.  Personally,  I have had several wake up calls lately and just today while I was editing this Notes for you, I got one...

"Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment"

~Buddha

Was this inspiring? If it was, I would greatly appreciate if you commented below and shared on Facebook.
