If we work in order to decompress, we will only decompose, and quickly.
There is a safety in putting our vulnerabilities aside to delve into a major project or take action against a traumatic event on a political level that has affected us personally, but the greatest injustice is in limiting self-belief systems that grandly announce that you are weak on your mental loud speaker just because you feel a certain emotion that doesn’t fit into your ideal self-image.
We are on a path to self-discovery as much as we are on a path to success. The two are not mutually exclusive; they are two sides of the same coin. We must discover what it means to be successful on our path, but in order to discover our personal definition of success, we must discover ourselves and revel in our uniqueness. Our uniqueness then becomes our selling point – the reason why we do our work.
Work makes us feel like we are strong, contributing members of society that can handle anything that comes our way, especially if our work involves heavy multi-tasking. But what multi-tasking really does is unravel our resolve to quiet our minds and reclaim the simplicity in the moment. This is precisely the reason that entrepreneurs must live simply, mindfully, and spiritually in order to have long term happiness and success. Take a look at Danielle LaPorte. She kicks ass doing just that.
