The Importance Of Taking Time To Take Care Of YOU
This blog post today addresses something that is very special and important in this day and age when people give and give and give but still don’t see their true value in this world.
I came across this topic while reading a post from one of my online mentors, Matt Morris, author of “The Unemployed Millionaire” and thought I’d share his post with you because it made a great impact in me and because Matt said it so well that I think you should read it in his own words.
From Matt’s blog:
We may have created success, have an amazing reputation and are respected in our field tut sometimes we forget that we’re human. We forget that if we don’t take time for ourselves, everything else will eventually crumble down around us and everything we’ve worked to create in our lives will fade away.
Most people who are running at 10 million miles an hour, sometimes forget that they are the energy source for all of the success they created in their lives and if that energy source ever burns out, ALL the lights go out!
The video below by Jada Pinkett-Smith talks about this topic. Her message is a shining and appropriate message because if anyone in this world is insanely busy and being pulled in 10,000 different directions BECAUSE of their success, it’s a wife and mother of some of the most in-demand Hollywood celebs out there so Jada knows what she’s talking about from first hand, real world experience.
You see, there’s a magical place that has no keys to the doors to enter into it, no street signs to find it, no coordinates on a GPS system, and no invitations to go there.
It’s a place that not every person gets to enter in their life but the people who do get to that place are rewarded with something the people who don’t make it to that place, envy and desire their entire lives.
This place has many names but the most common name for this place is called success and there’s a very good reason there are no keys, no signs, and no invitations to this place.
Because it’s 100% defined by you based on your own desires, your past experience, your past failures, your current mindset, and your current beliefs about what and who you are and what and who you can become, and that is unique to you and you alone.
This place is different for everyone. For some it means peace of mind, for others it means amassing wealth, and for others it’s as simple as finding happiness in the smallest things in life, while for others it means something entirely out of the scope of what mainstream success is defined as.
But there is one universal instruction for ALL of us who ever want to make it to this place so many seek to get to…
To get to this place in your life, you must not seek to become better than another person, you must not seek to surpass another person’s achievements, and you must not chase the “thing” that defines success for you.
To get to this place what you MUST do is look inward and have one single focused intention, to become a better, stronger, faster, smarter, and wiser version of yourself today than you were yesterday.
And when you can do that, the door reveals itself to you, you hold the key to unlock it, the map of how to get there reveals its secrets, and you don’t need an invitation to go there because you ARE there.
But, and here’s the rub, when we put the pedal to the metal and go all out in creating inspiration that compels action, we tend to forget to take time to take care of us!
And the most important thing to remember about all of this is, it ALL flows through you. You are the source of every experience, every emotion, every idea, every thought, and every action in your life so it’s vital that YOU take care of YOU first, the source of all of your experience in life.
Your body, your mind, your heart, your spirit, your soul… In your journey to serve your purpose in this life, be sure to tend to these things first because in doing so, your success is 100% guaranteed and you win the game before you ever even step foot on the field.
ALWAYS push hard, drive strong, give life every ounce you have to give, dream big, and never give up on your dreams, goals, hopes, and desires and apply that same power and focus to taking care of “you” all along the way and your life will continue to be amazing and only get more and more amazing as the years come and go.
