The Power of YouMar 19, 2018
Before you can ever have or achieve everything you want in life, you need to have a vehicle that’ll get you there. I’m not talking about your business or your next great idea, I’m talking about you.
The essence of who you are is actually made up of four beings. You have a physical being, an intellectual being, an emotional being, and a spiritual being. The health and vitality of each of these beings determines how far you get in achieving your dreams. Ignoring any of these beings limits what you’re capable of creating.
You won’t have the strength, focus, determination, or belief in what you want to achieve if you’re not “whole” first. There’s a reason why you put your oxygen mask on first before helping others on a plane. It’s because if you don’t take care of yourself first, you’ll never be able to take care of those around you.
What I see all the time though is what I call Used Car Syndrome. What I mean by that is people treat themselves as used cars. Where they ignore little issues on their vehicle until the vehicle isn’t worth investing in and then they trade it in. While this thought process can work on a car, it doesn’t work on you! You need to keep yourself running in peak condition in all four areas in your life because YOU is all you’ve got!
When was the last time you went to the dentist or had a physical, did something to get more active, read a book or article that stimulated new thoughts, read the Bible and prayed, or sent loving thoughts to yourself? Before you can ever have what you want, you have to do the activities necessary, and before you can do the needed activities, you have to already be that person on the inside. You never achieve something without believing you’re capable of doing it first.
Take some time to see YOU again, assess where you’re at in each of these four areas and love yourself enough to grow. Then the world will see just how AMAZING you are!
