I recently heard an astrologist say that 2012 is the Year of Change. The lady suggested that this year is a great year to make changes in your life and business (luckily she didn’t say anything about the world going under, phew).
Her predictions about change made me think about how so many business owners could do with some change. And I mean a serious lifestyle change, not the kind where you go off and Eat Pray Love, but the kind where you get your lifestyle back, however you define lifestyle for yourself.
Your ideal lifestyle may be different to your neighbor’s or friend’s ideal lifestyle (hopefully you and your partner agree on the same ideals).
My ideal lifestyle for example includes going for a surf or a run on the beach every morning, eating healthy food and having the flexibility to work from anywhere.
For you it may be to finish work at 3pm and pick up your children from school at least three times a week, taking your family on an overseas holiday once a year or being able to work from home.
I am a big believer in creating your business around your ideal lifestyle and not the other way round. Yes I know, most business owners started a business and the lifestyle had to fit around that. It might seem hard to make drastic changes, but you can still adjust your business step by step to get closer to your ideal lifestyle every day.
But how do you do that? The good news is, you don’t need a degree in lifestyle engineering (not that there is one).
One of my clients told me recently that she just couldn’t believe how everything seemed to fall into place and how the ‘stars were aligning’. I believe this happens when you are aligned with your purpose and taking action towards fulfilling it. Sounds too fluffy? Not really.
Here’s to a kick-butt lifestyle, you deserve it!
