To really go after what you want.. and I mean seriously. you’ve got to be a bit rigid.
It sounds so boring, doesn’t it?
Oxford dictionary defines it as ‘unable to bend or be forced out of shape; not flexible.’
Well as an entrepreneur, you need to be very flexible… because when you are going after what you want, life happens .. so you need to adapt.
But the more RIGID you can be with sticking to your plan (I mean the plan you make after getting really clear about your vision), staying on course, not getting distracted by people and what you ingest (including excess sugar if part of your vision is to be healthy, energized and focused), CONSTANTLY reminding yourself of what you want and WHY you want it… you will get what you want.
I believe that our level of joy in our lives derives first from deciding what we want (get clear) and then in our ability to delay gratification so we stay focused on our priorities.
I believe that the more we can learn to love discipline and .. yes.. rigidity … the more fulfilling a life we will have… which will be more calm and relaxed ironically.
Easier said than done and I’m definitely not a rigid person by nature, but when it comes to my work and my vision, I’m running a tighter and tighter ship with time.
You’re either in or you’re out when it comes to achieving what you want. Most of us are ‘in’ when it’s convenient and ‘out’ when the going gets tough.
But learning to stay strong, stay focused, and stay … rigid… will turn mediocre into meaningful, passenger seat into driver’s seat, ‘it’s not fair’ or ‘it’s just not working’ into ‘how did I get so lucky?
You got lucky because you became unavailable for not succeeding.. so you got rigid 🙂.
Do it with embracing your divine feminine energy (you have that too men!) and it will feel soft, kind and just a beautiful way of supporting yourself and your vision.. an act of self-love, of deep loyalty to your higher self.. because we all want to become the best version of ourselves right?
Rigidly yours (in the way that counts).
