How to Remember your Innate Worth Outside of your Business

As a business owner, it’s all too easy to lose yourself in your business.

And we don’t mean losing yourself within the daily to-do’s and never-ending admin work (although that struggle is also real) - we mean it’s easy to lose YOU and why you started your biz journey in the first place.

We’re here to remind you that your worth comes from who you ARE not what you DO. Read that again!

You are not your business. You are a person - whole and lovely and brilliant all on your own. Regardless of whether you reach that sales goal or finish your to-do list or get a good testimonial review.

You’ve heard this time and time again, but there’s a reason people say it - we can't pour from an empty cup. We have to do the things that fill our soul before we can put out work that fills the world!

If your work has felt tired, burnt out, draining, maybe it’s not about the work at all, maybe it just means your own cup is running low.

Read on for affirmations (because we could always use some words of encouragement around these business-owning parts) and practical tips (including journal prompts!) for conquering the business burn-out and remembering your innate worth outside of your business.

AFFIRMATIONS

If Instagram and social media in general has felt bleh to you lately, you aren’t alone. BUT, if you look for it, you can find that spark of inspiration and words that speak to you. 

 

Here are a few of our accounts we love to follow for a bright spot in our feed:

PRACTICAL TIPS: WAYS TO REMEMBER WHAT YOU LIKE OUTSIDE OF BUSINESS

Journal to remember who you are and how you think

    • What do you lose track of time doing?
    • What in life brings a smile to your face involuntarily? This can be people, places, things…!
    • If you could start a podcast on any one topic (you don’t have to think about this in a business sense!), what would it be?
    • What are your favorite things to do alone?
    • When was the last time you learned something new? What was the last thing you thought to yourself “I wish I knew how to do that”?
    • What do you want to be remembered for?
    • What’s the most inspiring place you’ve been? What qualities made it inspiring?
    • If you could start a new hobby and know you’d be good at it, what would you pick?
    • What are the top five things that energize and inspire you?
    • What are the 3 things you’d do today if you had an extra hour and no responsibilities?

‘I want to be a person who’ exercise:

This exercise is to get you to dream in a forward-thinking way about both the big and small aspects of your life.

Sit down with a piece of paper, set a timer for 15 minutes, and start out at the top of the paper with “I want to be a person who:”.

A few examples: “I want to be a person who: always smells good, who smiles at strangers, who gets in bed without their phone before 10pm, who never answers business emails after 5pm, who is a kind friend, who writes letters to the people I love, feels worthy of my relationship, etc.” Big to small, simple to more difficult, write it all down.

You’ll be surprised at what you can come up with and how this exercise allows you to really envision your best self (business aside) so you can then start to figure out how to take tiny steps each day to embody that. 

Sign up for one class that has nothing to do with your business.

And we mean NOTHING. Whether it’s a workout class, a pottery lesson, an acting class - sign up for something that pushes you outside of your comfort zone and has absolutely nothing to do with what you do for a living.

Ask your people.

What do they love about you? What do they think you don’t put enough time towards that they know lights your soul on fire?

We know it’s always advised to look internally for these types of answers, but opening an honest conversation and polling the people who know you best is a great way to find where you might have lost yourself along the way. 

We hope this was the reminder you needed today that you are not your business, you are a person deserving of a life outside of business-owning!

When you put yourself first, everything gets better - your business included! We encourage you to try at least one tip mentioned in this blog post and see how it revolutionizes the way you approach your business.
