These 3 attributes can help you live a balanced life as an entrepreneur

Blog BalanceLately I found out that am gaining some weight, “well it’s not a bad thing to add some extra kgs once in a while”,I keep on telling myself!…But what I am not confronting is that a few things need to change.. hey sounds unconvincing right! As an entrepreneur sometimes you end up having a crazy lifestyle that does not resemble a normal human being. There are days you will find yourself sleeping past midnight and waking up before everyone. There are days instead of taking a vacation to unwind you are thinking of the next project and going for vacation almost feels like wasting resources. There are days you will opt to use public transport rather than investing in a car because you are building an imaginary empire that never materializes.

This kind of lifestyle in the process brings a lot of imbalance, however when you are able to get the right balance, it helps to make you work on the optimal level. While interacting with different successful entrepreneurs I have learned a few tricks that I thought I could share here. While this might not work for everyone, putting into practice one or two might be a game changer in 2020

Wake up early

AlarmWhen you wake up late you feel sluggish ,waste a lot of time trying to figure out what to do. Did you know that by getting up just two hours earlier every single day, you gain 14 more hours in the week and 62 each month? Imagine the kind of progress you can make with that extra time. On the flip side, If you wake up early and use that time incredibly well, it can help you achieve a lot and plan your day .In the process it can help you get a still mind to enhance your spiritual life as well as help you put a positive mindset that increases your mental health. This can also give you time to do some exercise to energize your physical health. For you to achieve this you also need to regulate your sleep, meaning you need to set a specific time when you go to bed.I still struggle with this.

Have Limitations

 I will echo the words of Blaz KosThere is an optimal amount of investment needed for everything we do in life. If we invest more, we’re wasting resources or hurting ourselves. If we invest less than necessary, things don’t go into the direction we want. The big challenge lies in the fact that limits aren’t always in line with our instincts and emotional needs. That’s why we need self-discipline.” He says that…… You may not feel like exercising at all. But because you know all the benefits of exercise, you can decide to exercise at least two times per week. Your may love your work, but to keep long-term productivity, you can set a maximum limit of 50 hours of work per week and a minimum of 40 hours and so on. Your soft limits may be very limited at the beginning. You push but you get tired really fast. Don’t worry, just keep it up. Everything is like a muscle, you build it up with time. It’s better to do something every day, but in smaller quantities, than doing something once a week, trying to compensate and pushing too hard. That is how things accumulate, have been guilty for this for a very long time.

Personal Development 

GrowthPersonal development is about pushing ourselves to try new things, overcome boundaries, and further our understanding. It’s about always achieving the next level of excellency, and being proud of what we are able to do. Every time we learn a new skill, we have an extra string to our bow.According to an article published by Business 2 Community in part it said“the idea of becoming a better person and being happier is seen as some silly activity. But, in reality, we all want this and we resist it because we shy away from personal responsibility.If you were not fortunate enough to grow up around people with mindset directed towards success, personal responsibility and abundance, you are carrying around heaps of stuff that can thwart your professional success and keep you working through the natural fear, doubt and anxiety most of us experience. We can only adopt more empowering beliefs when we make a conscious effort to do so and this requires self-examination, study and finding tools that help us make this mental shift”.

What are you considering changing as we conclude the year 2019…..,do you think a small habit started today can change your entire life in the coming years.You are more than able ,go for it.
