Motivation Monday: 5.1.23

As I take my baby steps towards defining a business I want to grow and thrive in, I took some time to think about what really matters to me in life. See, I don’t see the point in cramming yourself into a work box and a home box. I don’t see the point in being different people in different circumstances. That is just way too complicated and becomes chaotic too quickly. So here are some guiding principles that have become important to me over the years, and I think are important to share.

Get off work on time. Say no when you can’t or don’t want to do something. Boundaries are the only thing between you and overwhelm. Set them and hold them.

Do what you say you will do. And provide updates while you are doing. Integrity is what will earn you trust, and communication is what will keep that trust.

There is no such thing as perfect. Excellence is the goal but embracing flaws is the thing will feed your soul.

Sometimes it just sucks. Fighting the suck makes it worse. Hopefully the suck will stop but if it doesn’t, it wasn’t for you. Let it go.

I live my life how I see fit. No one gets to tell me how to live my life. I get to tell no one how to live theirs. Everyone has the right to live in their authenticity.

What are some of your guiding principles and how do they show up in your life?
