So I'm going to go over these briefly so you can get a bit of a snapshot of what's included in that first module of my program, but also so you can start to think about whether these are some things that you can put in place in your own business to start getting off that treadmill of busy.1. Switch out of what society tells you that you should be doing -
There is a message out there in society that you've got to hustle and grind for success. You've got to do all the things at all the hours and wear all the hats if you want to get your business off the ground, and this is definitely the message that I still see out there. A lot of millionaires are pushing this often. A lot of older male millionaires, and I know that speaking to women specifically, it's not always that easy to be doing everything in your business, especially if you have a family or you have other commitments.Maybe you're studying or maybe you have a full time job still or you're a stay at home mom and there's this added pressure of always feeling stretched across a million things. I definitely felt this way as well and it's not a great feeling. There's a lot of guilt that comes up with it. There's a lot of shame that comes up with it and it's really not the way you want to be feeling in your business or life. You want to be enjoying all of it. So I really talk to my clients (and explore in this lesson) about how to break free from what society tells us how to actually separate yourself. If you can't enjoy things now, then I don't see the point and you want you to be able to enjoy your life.2. Discover what's not working -
So this is when I really look at diving deep with you around what hasn't been working up until now. What is keeping you on that busy treadmill running round and round and round and round and round and round and feeling like you're not getting anywhere. What is keeping you stuck? What is holding you back from that next step or that next level in your business or in your life? And how can we get you unstuck?One of the things I really suggest as a starting point with this, and it's what I've included in my free productivity plan. So if you haven't downloaded that yet, you can get access to that www.wellbeingweekly.com.au/plan
and it's a free PDF with 7 quick wins to double your productivity in half the time. It also has seven planner templates for you - and one of those is around tracking your time. I give you a calendar and I ask you to start thinking about what your average week looks like, what you know is coming up in your day, what you're focusing on. It really allows you to start thinking about what's not working for you. Another tip that I have is actually writing down everything that you do in a day and then starting to notice where you're replicating the same things over and over and over again, and how you can maybe think about managing those tasks in new ways. You'll also find in my productivity plan some support around batching tasks and there's a whole template in there as well to support you with batching. So I definitely recommend to go and download that one because it's going to help you with a lot of the things that I've just talked about.3. Know your hustle stress response -
and this is something that I refer to as your Business Survival Mode. So I've come up with four Business Survival Modes and they're based off the fight or flight response basically and how we respond to stress. I've attached this in a business sense to how you are responding to stress and stressors in your business and what is your common reaction? What's your common kind of survival response? And these aren't necessarily positive, but the good news is they're definitely things that you can change. So in my program we find out which business survival mode you're in, how this is presenting in your life and potentially holding you back and keeping you stuck.4. Have the tools to manage the difficult days -
I've put this one in here because I want to acknowledge that entrepreneurship is a journey. There are ups and downs. It is a roller coaster and I don't care how successful you are or how unsuccessful you are. There are going to be down days. There are going to be up days. There are going to be days where you're crying on the floor maybe. The problem is that not many people talk about it. I couldn't really find anyone that was being open around the difficult times and how to manage them. And that was a big part of wanting to start Wellbeing Weekly and have those conversations. To explore some of those emotions and some of those situations that can come up and how we can move forward and manage it all. So in this program, I really wanted to have a whole lesson around that and refer to it as my Mood Method where I provide 4 steps to manage the difficult days and move out of it quicker. It involves noticing the emotion, feeling it appropriately, understanding why it's happening and then switching out of it in a more positive way.5. Believing that change and the possibility of flow and fulfillment are possible for you -
I think this is so important because a lot of people struggle on that busy treadmill with may have limiting beliefs or some confidence issues. They may be thinking I'll just keep doing this because it feels safe and I know what I'm doing - but it's keeping you on that busy treadmill. You're just going around and around and around on the same things because you're not able to step out of your comfort zone. You're not necessarily feeling confident enough to believe in something more or something different and you're not really able to take that step off the treadmill and step into it.So a lot of what we work on in this lesson of my group program is around believing in the possibilities for you, believing that change and possibility and success is possible for you in new ways. That there are ways that you can work and structure your business and your life so that they work together on your terms. Ways that are not necessarily holding you back and keeping you small and safe, but they're giving you the results that you want and the confidence to go forward and have them. One of the ways that I do that is with my signature mindset funnel which is a model that I've created to process essentially your thoughts, your feelings and your actions and how they directly impact each other and then directly impact your outcomes and your results.6. What is the main goal that you want to achieve in the next three months -
So this is something that you can already be thinking about on your own. What do you want to achieve in the next three months? What do you want to work towards? What is that big goal, that big dream that you've had on the side of your treadmill that you haven't really been able to grasp or reach because you're too busy running, running, running, running, running in circles? I also encourage all of my clients to think about a lifestyle goal rather than a business goal.Alot of the clients I work with are no stranger to working in their business, so their business goals are usually carved in stone and they know exactly what they want, but they haven't necessarily thought about the lifestyle goals. So a big part of my program, like I said, is balancing business and life. Having your business fit in with your lifestyle so that you can have the ideal lifestyle that you want. You can be doing the things that you enjoy, the things that light you up and the things that you really want to be doing with your time and your energy. This all then oozes into your personal brand. Like I said, you are your business. You are your business' biggest asset. So when you're focusing on you and what you need and want, that just naturally oozes into your business and it attracts clients and it attracts your audience to you naturally. So I recommend a lifestyle goal. What would you love to see in your life in the next three months? And that is what we work on achieving for you in my group coaching programIf you have no idea where to start with any of this, and you're thinking I need some serious help getting off this busy treadmill.
