Some people are very successful on their own terms. They don’t rush to the next appointment, rush to get off the phone or rush to get a package to the post office. They are confident they will achieve their goals, while enjoying their work and having full personal lives.
Many of us believe that we have to work hard from before sun up to after sun down to accomplish anything. This is not living, it’s existing and doing it too long will strip you of your joy for life and passion for your work.
There are ways of living and thinking that promote ease and support you. Success with ease is taking a stand for the way you work, committing to having your work contribute to you as much as it contributes to others. Success with ease is enjoying your work, the process and the results while enjoying yourself and the other aspects of your life. Adopt some of these ideas to add more ease to your work and the rest of your life.
Release old ideas that pain and suffering are necessary to achieve success. Reprogram your thinking throughout the day with these statements “Success comes to me with ease.” “I move through my life with ease.”
De-Clutter Your Life
Do you have too much stuff in too many places? If so, get rid of it. It takes up precious space, causes confusion and sucks the energy out of you. Clean your closets, your desk drawers, your pantry and every other place that is in disarray.
Plan Breaks in Advance
Sometimes we think that the sky will fall if we take a vacation, go away for a long weekend or even take an afternoon off. If you plan for time away, you will easily be able to get away, without having to reschedule, cancel, juggle, delegate and rush to get things done. Take a stand for yourself and give yourself needed breaks.
We spend too much time worrying about the future and the past. Yesterday is a memory, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a truly gift. That is why they call it the present.” Put your attention and thinking on what you can change. Release worrisome thoughts. They do you no service and can create mental and emotional havoc that makes no contribution to your life.
We can all use more support. Support comes in many forms. Support can be a walk with a friend, a cup of tea in the afternoon with a colleague, a neighborhood teenager who mows your lawn, takes your dog for a walk or takes your boxes to charity. Support is getting a massage once a month, hiring an assistant, or a bookkeeper, getting your groceries delivered to your door. Where can you use more support? Go get it!
You can be more successful and have more ease by putting your attention on these ease-enhancing ideas. Watch the ease begin to flow in your life.
