There are many aspects to building a solid foundation for your business and one of the essential elements to achieving financial success is often overlooked until an issue occurs that prompts you to take action with personal development.
A common mistake many successful business owners make is by not putting the emphasis and taking the time to personally be good to yourself! After all, there are only so many hours in a day.
Your business is a total reflection with the essence of YOU and research demonstrates when you take the time to personally make yourself a priority, not only are you receiving optimal emotional, mental and physical health benefits but this energetically, creates a significant positive effect on your business’s bottom line and overall operations. Thus, creating a win-win!
Simple exercises to “Be Good to YOUrself” and Grow Your Business:
- Allow yourself an additional 5-10 minutes of deep diaphragmatic breathing before going to your next networking group, mastermind or department meeting.
Taking a few deep breaths increases the blood and oxygen flow to your brain, lowers blood pressure and allows your mind and organ body systems to relax and function with ease.
This will increase and center your energy enabling you to stand out and shine from all the rest, provide Divine inspiration and creativity when collaborating with others and will guide you with the clarity to articulate your desires in a prosperous joint venture while creating a win-win for the highest good of all involved.
- Driving to work is a great time to energetically co-create your day through these simple methods of stating positive affirmations as if your desire has already been achieved and giving gratitude for what you currently have.
Using the phrase, “thank you so much that I now have …” or by stating “I am …” and affirming for what you desire is a great way to draw it into your conscious experience and increases your mental confidence and emotional self-esteem.
Giving gratitude for what you already have will energetically bring even more gratitude into your life. You can speak, sing and chant them. The main thing is to have fun while you are doing them.
- Taking 5-15 minutes to set your intentions for your desired day through visualization techniques and meditation.
Closing your eyes while seeing with your third eye chakra which is located between your eyebrows and setting your intentions of what you would like to receive, create, accomplish or experience is another great way to vibrationally align yourself with those experiences. You can do this through visualization imagery, meditation and guided meditation techniques.
This also clears away any negative mind chatter of worry or fear.
- Regular visits to a resort spa can invigorate your creativity and enables you to release all that no longer serves you.
Getting a weekly therapeutic full body massage and frequently scheduling a facial, manicure, pedicure and other self-care services is immensely healing by purging your body of toxins, impurities, lactic acid, cortisol and many other elements that creates blockage in all aspects of your life.
Implementing a few of these personal development exercises into your daily routine will positively change your life and are essential tools in building a SOLID foundation and successfully growing your business.
