I gave myself a little bit of grace this morning, and I want you guys to kind of hear this, appreciate this. Maybe be able to digest this. I'd been kind of rushing into my mornings and just rushing into my day and meditating whenever. And what is meditating look like for you? So it's prayer, it's meditation, it's your quiet time, it's time that you've set aside for yourself and it doesn't have to be crazy, it doesn't have to be dramatic. This morning, it was about fifteen minutes that just kind of spent some time doing a guided meditation.
So spend that time. Don't rush. Take your time to do what you need. So, I gave myself the grace to go into a meditation and moonwalk into my day instead of sprinting to my day. So I already feel that that's going to be better.
I had been talking about becoming your own advocate and an advocate is someone that stands up publicly for a policy or a procedure or laws publicly and what I wanted to be able to transfer over to you is to be able to be your own advocate. Stand up for your own self. You are your own policy. You are your own law and be able to feel within everything that you are doing something for yourself. It's always it seems so easy for me to do things for other people, to stand up for other people, to help other people with their issues while letting my things go by the wayside and go with things for other people first, not filling up my own cup.
What is your vision for your life? What is it look like when you get up in the morning? What is your cover feel like? How was the pillow? How fluffy is your pillow? How is the weight of your blanket? How does it smell? How is your breakfast? What does it feel like? What kind of car do you get?
It really put some energy in. This is creating your best day because this day can be a representation of your entire life. So creating your own vision. What do you see for your future if you can't see your future? You can believe your future. You can fight for your future. And this all becomes and taking having faith to do this exercise and it also takes some courage to do this exercise and really put in the effort to decide, well, how do I want my life to be?
Do not allow any organization, your family or any place that you've ever met determine what your values are today and how you want your values to be. Tomorrow, you get to decide. So, when you decide what your values are, it's easier to align with people that have your same values. You may have noticed if your values were not aligned with the job that you have had and aligned with the organization you've been a part with, then it's always terrible place to work.
You don't feel good about it because your values don't align and also, if your values have changed or your values are not the same as your friends or older friends. It feels broken. It feels like something's up because if you don't align with people, organizations, if your values are different, it's just different.
Entrepreneurship helped me heal. Being able to be a good communicator, being able to listen-not listening with your ears only, but listening with your heart. Listening to what people are saying, what they are not saying. This is also body language is a lot that goes into this. You don't have to read a book, but you just have to be aware and it's hard to get to the point where you're listening to other people. If you don't know what your own values are, what your own vision. So you hear things from a different paradigm. And we all do. We all have a paradox. So but this is about entrepreneurship, being able to listen to what people are telling you and being able to serve them and help them and give them what they need. We just have to listen. It's being able to listen and being able to turn the hard earned skills that you already learned from your organizations, from, you know, being a family member. You are a great cook. You know how to you're a great project manager. You're a great organizer. You know how to coach people without even thinking about it.
These are hard earned skills that you have gathered along your life. So you're able to hone these skills and turn these skills not only to a side help. So a part time job, you're able to become a part time or micro entrepreneur in these spaces. And not only do they help you heal and grow because once you're in this space of entrepreneurship, whether you decide to do it for money or not. I don't know why you wouldn't, but if you decide to do it for money or not, your conflict in a space where you're connecting with people that are helping you and wanting you to grow.
Finding a mentor or a coach. What does that look like? So it may not look how you may think it looks. It could be finding a book about a topic. So if you're into reaching your house or flipping houses. I love real estate. That's what's my first example. Find a book, get a course, write. So it could be a book, it could be a course, it could be a podcast. Listening to some guidance to start opening up your mindset around these topics that you're interested in, that you already have skill set in. But it can't look like getting you a coach, someone to help you pull out. What are you naturally good at? What are your skill sets that you already have that can turn to money and help for someone else? It can look like finding a coach that is in your neighborhood in those kinds of ways. It may be some one on one coaching or can be group coaching. And if you need some help with that, you're looking to find out what your niche is. What's your value proposition? What is your framework helping you get help? A framework, no matter what industry you want to have some kind of structure that people can always depend on, that you can depend on. I can help you with that. You can reach out to me and I can help you with that. But then also looks like what is what is your fears? What are doing something that you think is interesting? Ask them a question. Don't say “Can I pick your brain?” because that's terrible. Just ask them. “Hey, I've been thinking about doing this thing. What do you think about it? Can you give me some tips or something like that?” People want to help. If you're not being all grimy. So use those skills that an entrepreneur would use. I say that entrepreneurial because in that space you're always going to be looking to grow and you're using that entrepreneur, the entrepreneur neural boundary or box or block it to be able to be like professional and personal development. You'll always be looking to grow and be better, and that gives you a vehicle to be able to do that and you'll be able to monetize it.
For me, that entrepreneurial piece and not all the way all day 9 to 5 entrepreneurship, but just being a part time all, a part time entrepreneur changed my life. It really tapped into making me a better person. It gave me an opportunity to make more money. Help me out on my taxes, beat the people that I've met that have even elevated me higher since I stepped into the place of entrepreneurship has been amazing. So even to use entrepreneurship as a vehicle for personal development, it's awesome. It's amazing.
