To be successful in anything; business, life, everything… it’s imperative to get all parts of your being working effectively in tandem. That’s your mind, body and spirit.
The practical aspects; copywriting, social media, photography, along with all the tools and strategies, whilst important to your business, will only take you so far. In fact, they won’t take you anywhere without a solid foundation.
You might have the finest building materials known to mankind, but if you lack the foundation, that all comes crumbling down and it’s not a pretty sight. Have a sound foundation, however, and everything built on top (no matter how questionable the individual block) will be used to maximum effect. It will also enable you to discern which things are better and what to cut down or avoid. You may lose a layer or 2 off the top but you’re able to build again from that point rather than starting again from scratch.
That foundation is you. Your mindset, identity, habits, feelings of self-worth and who you actually think you are on a deep level.
Gone are the days when this is hokey-kokey, ‘I don’t have time for this’ or airy-fairy nonsense. This is as fundamental as it gets. It used to be that this was a side issue and only for the ‘alternative types’, not the alphas or high-achievers. The reverse is true and we’re pleased to say that the world is waking up to this very fact.
We’re not talking spiritual mysticism, but scientific principles.
In fact, before you take courses, add on all kinds of tools and new fangled technology, take a step back first and get your mind right. This is a huge and ongoing process but it will pay off in big dividends in the future. Who knows, you may have some fun in the process, we certainly have!
You may think you don’t have the time. But it’s like exercise (for the mind). Of course there’s time (same 24 hours each day for everyone), it’s just how you apply it. And the amount of time it will save in the future once you achieve some sort of balance is immeasurable.
It’s always important to get to the root of issues and treat the causes rather than look for temporary cures. Those things may work for a time but you’ll always keep coming back to the same challenges. Get to the bottom of it, deal with it, all in a positive and life affirming way then you can move forward.
The clarity and energy you will experience will propel you to new levels… in your business pursuits and in the rest of your life too! And isn’t it all part of the same picture anyway?
Right here at Canary PR, we understand this holistic balance, try to apply it in our own lives and integrate it into what we offer our clients and associates.
