πŸ˜“πŸ₯€ This is too hard! It really doesn’t need to be this way.

by | mindset

Have you ever thought about how sometimes we make things harder for ourselves just because… we are used to it? 😳

As in, we are operating on default mode and can’t even tell there’s an easier way to do things.

A few months ago, back home, I was walking around the streets of São Paulo {I miss it!🀩}, and I was about to enter a pharmacy.

There was a long line to reach the counter. I glanced at it quickly and without thinking much of it, I went on to stand at the end of the line.

A few minutes later, a guy came by.

He approached the pharmacy, and did the same thing as I did… stopped before entering and looked around stretching his neck a little bit to see further down inside.

But his next step after that quick glance?

To turn around and go on his merry way.

“Wait, what?” I thought to myself… “Why is he leaving? He looked at THIS completely normal line and decided to leave?? Lines happen here in Brasil everywhere – it is just how it is!”

Was it an annoying line? Yes!

Was it an unnecessary line? Yes!

Yet >> I << had voluntarily stepped on it because in my head the old script of “that’s just how things are down here in Br” was turned on in full mode. “There are lines everywhere. So yeah…. it’s just a line. Stand still, Raine and wait your turn!”

πŸ‘‰πŸΌ How interesting is that two people in the same scenario with completely different autopilot running in the background. {me and that dude}

One decides to leave because the line is way more of a hassle than what he wants to put up with and the other person chooses to stay because “that’s how things are – just toughen up and do it”.

And so on that moment, realizing all this, I did a big imposing {in my head} “F** that! I’m out of here.” and stepped out of the line. {#Freedom! 😁}

I knew it wasn’t imperative to get the thing done right at that time, I could come back later but on that moment that I stood up in line without thinking I was behaving on the default mode from when I use to live down there.

My current self was strolling down the streets of her hometown as a tourist yet operating from her old resident patterns.

How incredible it is to know that in a split second we can change perceptions of situations and actually CHOOSE to see things differently, isn’t it?

And as a result we ACT differently.

Now, think about how much we act on auto-pilot because we are used to it — in life AND business!

We let old habits define our standards and how our life + biz will go in the present moment.

We can change that at any given moment.

When we notice we are making our lives harder than it needs to be, we can break that pattern and choose differently.

At every moment, at any time.

Those dreadful and burnout inducive scripts of:

“I can do it all”
“I can figure this one out too”
“I will get this one done”
“I’ll just do it myself!”

They all can be gone in a split second {reads >> split decision!}

There is no glory, extra brownie points, or merit badges for when we work ourselves to the bone and stretch ourselves thin.

You are the most important asset in your business and when you overdo? Your business feels it. Your creativity feels it. Your genius feels it.

This is not cute.

And I know you know it!

So truly… it is time to break those nasty old habits of taking and doing it all by yourself.

What can you delegate/break free from today? πŸ˜‰
