Sometimes, we do a little too much running about for our own good.
We try to do 100 things at once, we try to be in 100 places at once, and all we do is tie ourselves in knots.
Our message gets confused, we become overwhelmed, and we become exhausted.
And we accomplish very little.
Despite our best intentions, all we end up doing is burning up a lot of energy with very little return.
Not only that, we also give out a confused message to people and risk pushing away the very audience we are trying to connect with.
What about slowing down and doing things calmly instead?
Would that give us enough time to catch up with ourselves and give out a clearer message?
And get people to listen to us instead of running after them and trying to shove stuff down their ears?
Here is an example of what happens when you sit down.
At a recent, very busy FIBO, with meeting after meeting scheduled on my agenda, I had to sit down for a few minutes just to catch my breath.
When I did that, these 4 lovely ladies came up to me and sat down too.
We struck up a conversation immediately and we had a great tête-à-tête together!
I said tête-à-tête!!!!
It was one of my highlights of the day.
So it seems there is a lot to be said for applying the brakes.
The conversation comes right up to you and sits down too 🙂
A BodyForge shoutout to the gorgeous All Stars ladies who decided to spend their break with me! I guess I must have engaging conversation.
But it does go to show that the best results happen when you sit down and listen.
I think we have successfully made that one of the hallmarks of The BodyForge in the last few years.
It is probably one of the biggest reasons that our Re-Invention program is so successful.
Few people really take time to listen these days. Few people have time for others.
We dare to be different.
We listen. We try to understand.
It helps us when we try to be understood.
And it works!!
It changes lives!
Rock your little hearts out my friends. Have a lovely week ahead!
