Get Out Of the Box to Think Outside the Box

by BJ on February 27, 2015

Decided to hit up the beach today because sometimes, you need to get out of your own box to think outside the box.

Sometimes you need to take a break in your journey as an entrepreneur.

Too much work can lead to burnout and I didn't want that as I've been really going gungho mode in the last 3 months on my health, business, and so forth.

So I decided to take a breather today at the beach.

And oh man…I needed this…

it RECHARGED me like nothing else in a long time…

i mean there are other things that recharges me but there is something about going to the beach or checking out the nature that just relieves you of all the stress that you may have as an entrepreneur and just fills up your soul to the core…

just looking at the beach made me feel like a battery being recharged…and i felt stronger, better, and just felt so much better overall…

so don't feel bad taking a break once in awhile…we as overachievers think we got to work everyday and no days off…but as i mature as a person and as an entrepreneur, i now know the importance of taking a break here and there…

also enjoy the PROCESS during your journey as an entrepreneur…regardless of your level…building a business is NOT just about the trophy or making the money…it's the journey…it's the process…it's who you become as a person and all that…if you just chase after the dollar, you end up selling yourself out and not really following your heart…

reflecting back, i kind of know why i was feeling stressed out…

it was because i was trying to do too many things all at once…

there are things in my business i LOVE to do…like doing videos…creating content…just CREATING stuff…

but there are also things i HATE doing in my business…like customer support…answering minute detailed messages about technical support here and there…

so after today, i DECIDED to have one of my virtual assistants ANSWER PRETTY MUCH ALL my emails and facebook messages for me…i appreciate you but you have to understand i get TONS of messages not just from you but OTHER people as well in my emails and facebook…don't take it personally…this is not my strengths and it DE-ENERGIZES me…

that's why I'm an entrepreneur…i CREATE THINGS…i need to OPEN MY MIND and see the BIG VISION and the BIG PICTURE…if I scrunch myself up to answer minute details, it DE-ENERGIZES me…again, please be respectful before you ask specific questions because my tips are through my PRODUCTS, SERVICES, and HIGH TICKET CONSULTING…

don't get me wrong…i appreciate all my subscribers and members…but I got to be true to myself and build an internet business where i have a LIFE as well!

So from now, I won't be answering emails or facebook messages as much as possible because I got to LEAD by EXAMPLE too!

Nothing personal. Like I said if you want to talk one-on-one or ask me questions and ARE SERIOUS, then I have LIMITED spots open for consulting at http://www.BJMin101.com/mentor for $1000 an hour (My advice is worth MORE than that for the RIGHT student).

You may not understand me but as your business grows, you will see this as a challenge as well. So I want to lead by example just like my mentors do this as well.

I am in process to get a virtual assistant to answer ALL my emails and ALL my facebook messages…i will once in awhile check but i will START A NEW HABIT to not answer as much as possible because this is what causes me the stress in my business. Thus, I will create a FAQ that answers common questions in future.

Again, if you really want my personal time, then you must pay for my high ticket consultingĀ atĀ http://www.bjmin101.com/mentor.

When you FOCUS on your strengths, it ENERGIZES YOU…but when you focus on your weaknesses, it STRESSES YOU OUT!

that's why I'm going to KEEP FOCUSING on my STRENGTHS…like creating videos DAILY…i create videos EVERY DAY for my future website at http://www.Dreampreneur.com (still in progress as I'm currently focused on Video Commissions) for my future training…it comes NATURALLY…

but for MY WEAKNESSES, i am going to outsource it…

So for your business do the SAME so you can continue to feel energized, alive, and live the INTERNET FREEDOM LIFESTYLE you want…

Don't try to be the chief cook, bottle washer, etc…it will STRESS YOU OUT like it did to me recently…

hey, i'm not perfect…this is a journal of my journey of continually growing and becoming the best entrepreneur i can be to make the impact i want to make…and that really comes from FOCUSING on my strengths…

same thing for you…

FOCUS on your strengths…and OUTSOURCE the rest…

talk soon,
BJ
