The way in which you see the world is very important. So important in fact, that the filter in which you make decisions has had much to do with where you currently are. Can you go back to a decision that you made years ago because of your philosophy of life that has something to do with where you are at today? I’m sure you can. The important thing to note is that everyone has a certain set of beliefs about the world. (Even if one says they don’t have a specific worldview, their worldview is to not see through the lens of a worldview.) [Read more…] about Have You Thought Much About Your Worldview?
As a business owner, I understand how hard it can be to grow a business without sacrificing some of the things you really want. That’s why I was so thrilled when my friend (and fellow business owner), Sean Hyde, told me he was hosting an interview series all around this topic. The idea for this event was actually born out of his own research project to learn HOW entrepreneurs are finding success on their own terms, and running businesses and lives they love at the same time.
It’s called The Small Business Freedom Summit: Getting your life and your business on the track to success, and I have a complimentary ticket for you to attend this June 19th-21st online event. It’s for business owners and entrepreneurs who want to find success on their own terms but are challenged with the priorities and responsibilities that come along the way.

Achieving our dreams requires that we make better use of our precious time, and having more energy in the process is necessary to do so. Some of the best ways to find abundant energy are having a positive outlook on life, having a well-balanced diet, getting ample rest, exercising, and taking supplements. But the number one way that people find short-term energy boosts is through energy drinks and other forms of caffeine.
Energy drink sales in 2012 were over $12.5 billion. $12.5 billion! There is too much to do in such a short period of time and people are looking for any method available to help them get through their days.
But as we look at how people boost their energy levels, we must also look at the number one energy waster: unnecessary stress. Notice that I reference ‘unnecessary stress’ and not stress in general. This is because stress itself isn’t necessarily a bad thing, because stress can actually push us out of our comfort zones. But too much stress in large doses is when stress becomes a bad thing.
Stress is inevitable, so we need to begin embracing it, dealing with it, learning from it, and moving on. Yes, stress will come, because it is our body’s natural response to changes in life. Anybody that tells you that stress can be totally eliminated from life is lying to you.
Whether it is speaking in front of large crowds, taking on a new job, not having the finances you need to grow your business, or making a huge mistake in your endeavors that you don’t see as being fixable in this moment, everyone experiences large doses of stress when they step out to do something meaningful. This is why stress is such an important discussion to have today. We have to learn how to move through any unnecessary stresses to make way for good stress if we want to lead with our lives and make a bigger impact.
This being said, it is a good idea to identify any unnecessary stresses in your life—the stresses you can change—and eliminate them as soon as possible. You can begin removing unnecessary stress by choosing the right priorities, because you cannot do it all. But, what do we do with all of the other “necessary” stresses we have? Here are six action steps to lessen the burden of unnecessary stress in your life and grab hold of the mindset you have always wanted: [Read more…] about Take Your Time Back, Increase Your Energy, and Lower Unnecessary Stress
