Is Your Business Killing You? Why Self-Care Unlocks The Highest Levels of Success

Besides fear, what drives you? And why are you afraid of losing it all anyway? What’s with that?

Being addicted to success and achievement is one of the most noble addictions. But the true gateway to success is not long hours and doing tons of work you hate. True success is getting everything you are going after in life while also feeling and showing up as your best. 

According to the most successful people in the world, true success is not just working hard, but it’s working hard at something you deeply love. 

There are certain people who’s success makes us feel like they are superheroes. People like Warren Buffett, Oprah Winfrey, Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, and Richard Branson definitely give us Superhero vibes. 

Here Are 5 Self-Care Habits That Can Help Catapult You Toward Your Dreams And Away From Your Fears:

1. Meditation

In a non-cheesy or overused way, meditation is a game-changer. The ability to lower your brainwaves and go down to your Alpha level (as described in the Silva Method) allows you to safely overcome the limited ways of thinking and destructive habits that keep you procrastinating and from achieving your greatest potential.

Meditation is one of the best ways to manage stress and come up with better ideas to grow your business, solve problems, and improve your life. 

According to research, about 90-95% percent of all brain activity is subconscious. That is why it can be so hard to overcome self-sabotage, bad habits, and explode your plateaus or areas you feel stuck in life, money, or business. You do not have to fall victim to a life that doesn’t excite you or feels like a constant hamster wheel. Mediation allows you to remove all roadblocks and solve your problems.

2. Work-Life Balance

This sometimes feels like a myth when you are building and running your own business. But setting boundaries for yourself and on your time is actually more profitable. 

If you give yourself smaller deadlines and practice Deep Work, you will get more impactful work done in less time which can lead to greater success. Cal Newport says “Clarity about what matters provides clarity about what does not.” Deciding to focus only on the tasks that move your business forward and provide you with the most opportunities for growth, is the one thing that can help you the most. 

Dedicate all your focus on the 20% that generates 80% of your results, and delegate the remaining 80% to freelancers and employees. 

3. Ikigai 

Your ikigai is your purpose in life. This is a Japanese word that means “alive” and “worth”. It is used to describe your well-being, achieved by doing activities that feed your soul, give you life, and advance you in life and your career.

Ikigai has 4 rules: you love it, you are great at it, the world needs it, and you are paid for it. This concept helps to provide you with clarity, direction, and guidance if you feel stuck or like you are at a crossroads in life. 

4. Sleep 

Your mind, your body, and your business need sleep. As an entrepreneur, you are your business and there isn’t much separation, especially in the beginning or if you decide to remain a solopreneur. 

Without enough sleep, your body starts to break down and you have massive brain fog while trying to work and crush your goals. When your body starts to break down it begins to attack itself, your immune system lowers, and you get caught in a cycle that can lead to health issues, anxiety, depression, and little to no productivity.

Your success is directly tied to your health. Skipping sleep is never a good idea. When you take care of your body achieving your goals becomes 10x easier because you have the physical and mental ability to show up and give it your all each day and accomplish great things consistently. 

5. Good Food & Good Times

It’s almost scary how different you feel when you fuel your life with the right foods. It’s like all of a sudden you wake up and you actually feel alive, instead of tired or grumpy. 

You no longer feel weighed down and sluggish, and many times brain fog also disappears which allows you the clarity you need to tackle your to-do list and make more money.

And when you pair good food with good times, your life somehow feels like it falls into place. Good times include doing something you love each day, spending time with your spouse or significant other, quality time with family and friends, and creating new experiences for yourself that push your boundaries in a good way.

“Self-care is your fuel. Whatever the road ahead or the path you’ve taken, self-care is what keeps your motor running and your wheels turning.” ― Melissa Steginus

Self-care is the most important aspect of running your business

All of these things should be done regularly because without them life feels empty, and that feeling slows and prevents you from growing and achieving the kind of success that is deeply fulfilling and lasts forever.

These things may seem small, but these habits are critical to getting unstuck and moving forward in your life and in your business. 

Self-care is the most important aspect of running your business because everything is in your control and everything depends on you to move it forward. But you can’t pour from an empty cup. And you can’t work until the point you are sick and unable to take care of yourself or run your business because you are so burnt out.

When we feel overworked and depleted we achieve some of our worst results. When we are at our wit’s end, beyond frustrated, and caught in a negative self-defeating cycle, there’s no way we can move forward. This is the feeling we want to avoid at all costs. And we can, by prioritizing our well-being.

Have you ever noticed those moments when you worked so hard, and even though you sometimes felt tired, that inner feeling of inspiration and hope energized you and allowed you to rest assured? 

Because you felt so confident in what you were doing? This is a healthy feeling we can safely maintain by creating more balance in our lives. 

In order to have amazing levels of success, you must first have order and then movement in your life and in your business. When you are clear about your why and your purpose in life, and you work towards it in a way that supports your overall health and well-being, there are no boundaries or limits to your success. 

Your success will only slow or break down when something is going on inside of you that blocks you 

The only way to truly achieve long-lasting success is to become it internally. Eileen Wilder once said that successful people practice success long before it ever happens for them. 

If you visualize and practice your success daily, and develop healthy habits that support you on your journey, your greatest success will be inevitable and long-lived. Which is the greatest success of all.
