Hi Team...

What are thinking?

Seriously- what are you thinking?

Do you even know?

Today, so many are moving at such a fast clip mentally that they are not even aware of what they are thinking.....

Always something to do...

Always someplace to go...

Never any time.

Your workout.... rushed.

Your meals.. rushed.

Your time...fleeting.

Your life... passing quickly.

Why?

Well, you made a decision.

A decision to live like this...

Many that I Coach deal with the feeling of always being in a rush because they are alway falling behind or not where they want to be....

So, they work. Work hard and long.

And, over time, they are left feeling tired, fatigued, and burnt-out...

Still feeling like they did not go where they wanted to go (even though they have done amazing things!)....AND certainly not attaining success under the timelines they desire...

Can you relate?

I call this the Curse of the High Performer...

Their results are actually amazing.. yet, they are not that amazing to the person who achieved them because those were the results they expected...

So, celebrating them (their results) is hard.

It is easier to focus on "whats next?"....

When you are focused on "whats next"... without taking a strategic pause to "digest"... you can get in some big trouble...

One of my amazing mentors has achieved immense success in the healthcare space.... 

He has purchased sports teams....

Employs over 17k people...

And is one of the most amazing men in my life....

He told me this:

If you are going to eat (work, grow) you must make time to digest (rest, let things marinate, take a break).....

Life is a series of sprints, marathons, and intervals of rest...

Some intervals of rest are short (vacations)...

Others are long (time between ventures)....

That is how it works...

You do not have to be ON and GROWING all of the time... contrary to what the gurus say....

You can grow mentally, yes.

But, you do not need to be growing your business and career every single day...

As a matter of fact, if you focus on growing your self, their is a great chance your business and career will grow as a result.

You can only do that though if you take the time and create space between you and your work...

Taking strategic rest is essential...

That starts by knowing how you are feeling... what you are thinking... and how you are feeling... and why you are feeling that way...

Then, and only then are you ready to go and grow!

Let's GO!

Your Coach,

COACH DANA CAVALEA
