Establishing Your Energy Boundaries by Vince Morales
How do you feel about your business right this very moment? Do you enjoy it? Are you fulfilling your passion? Or is it dreary and tough to get out of bed every morning?
In a perfect world, you would jump out of bed happy and energized, ready to tackle the day (and your clients) with ease. Your family would go off to school or work happy, your clients would love everything you had to say, and you would see the passive income checks come in every day from your book sales.
Do you desire this perfect world? Complete perfection is not attainable but that’s not to say you can’t aim for a strong balance between your work life and your personal life. When your life is balanced well, then your energy increases, you feel revitalized, and stressful situations don’t stop you in your tracks.
According to traditional Chinese medicine, every human body has an energy highway through which all energy flows. This flow of energy affects how we feel, how we think, and also affects our overall health. When there are no energy blockages, life is good and we can have a nearly perfect day. When we experience energy blockages due to stress, injury, trauma, poor diet, or other poor living conditions, our overall physical and mental health suffers dramatically.
Setting boundaries within your business is one key to maintaining your energy’s balance. Your energy is also your soul (and your liveliness) and when you take on too much work or have clients who don’t meld with your business philosophy, you become stressed, which dampens your energy, thus dampening your outlook on life and perspectives.
