Rest is Productive

Rest Is Productive

Rest is productive. This is something that I have known to be true for quite some time but have only recently decided to put fully into practice.

You see, it’s easy (especially for a Type-A-Recovering-Perfectionist like me) to get caught up in being consistent for the sake of consistency. 

Maybe that’s how it used to be. Show up constantly and consistently until you get the results that you want to see. 

The world is changing though. A new, more enlightened, more refreshing approach to building business is manifesting all around us. 

And we’ve been brought here to give ourselves and others the permission to put their hearts first and at the center of it all. 

That means before we think about it, we’ve gotta “feel” about it. 

(Yes, I know that sentence doesn’t really work but hear me out!)

I used to think through (aka strategize) everything. I’d plan, plot and overthink my way through pretty much everything in life, including my business. I did it all even if it didn’t feel right, even if I didn’t feel like doing it. 

With my most recent launch, there were elements of my program that I wasn’t fully aligned with, and consciously or not, I still allowed myself to be influenced by the coaching/consulting community to create an offering that fit into the current model that is considered “standard” out there.

And thankfully, this new type of energy is protective. It helps you re-align so that you can create something in tune with what your heart longs to create in their world. 

And so, that is what I’m currently doing. I’m feeling my way through everything I do, say and share. Instead of doing, I’m in a state of being (of seeing, sensing, breathing, moving) with my heart.

Yes, it’s a little scary and unnerving for someone like me.

But it’s also totally wonderful. 

So what has come from my restful state?

>>> A more aligned approach to the next chapter

>>> Greater clarity in my next steps

>>> Full faith in what’s to come
