• Write it down. Make it happen.

    I believe we all want more peace, success and abundance in life.

    When you find yourself in a place of frustration or overwhelm (and I believe we all do– notice I didn’t say “if”) there are three steps you can take right away to refocus and recharge.  

    1) Carefully assess and evaluate what you are tolerating. This is a deep process and may take a bit of time AND I highly recommend it. Grab a pad of paper and a pen or pop open your laptop. Make a column for both your personal life and your business and jot down all of the things that are causing you any amount of discomfort. Your tolerations can be big or small but whatever they are they will have one thing in common — they are causing you discomfort on some level and that HAS to change. This could range from a missing button on a blouse to a team member who isn’t delivering.

    2) Create a to-do list to fix, eliminate or change whatever it is that’s not fully supporting you and that you’ve merely been tolerating. The important thing here is to take action. Once you’ve identified everything you are tolerating you can no longer ignore them. And, once you eliminate what isn’t serving you — you can create a more supportive, peaceful and abundant environment. For example, on a personal level doing something as simple as replacing a missing button (or taking it to a seamstress) can make a big difference. On a professional level, if team members aren’t performing as you’d like, having an honest conversation and clearly defining expectations will eliminate a great deal of stress.

    3) Make sure to reward yourself for taking action. Rewards can also be big or small (and sometimes it’s the little things that really count). Suggestions include: Get a massage, take a bubble bath, unplug from the computer and go for walk, schedule an outing with gal pals, go see a concert and more. It’s also important to take daily action towards achieving your goals and creating a life that fully supports you.Visualize what you need to do to continue to support your personal and professional goals and commit to moving in that direction.

    By identifying what isn’t supporting you (the things you’re tolerating), taking action to remove points of frustration or overwhelm and celebrating your progress, you’ll create more peace, success and abundance in all areas of your life.

      I so agree with the concept of dealing with our tolerations Lisa – like a sailing boat trying to set sail if we have tolerations it is like leaving our moorings attached and trying to move forward is impossible!

    2. Sue Painter says:

      Working with toleration is a practice that truly has deep benefits to one’s soul and one’s business. Being trapped by what we tolerate means never being free.

    3. Great tips, Lisa! So many people forget the celebration part — KEY to celebrate successes in a way that FEELS celebratory to you — to attract MORE of that into your experience. XO, K.
