Did you know that having discipline and focus in all aspects of your life is vital to building your business?
That seems like an obvious statement, doesn’t it? But believe it or not I had no idea that my lack of willpower in my personal life would be hindering my professional life.
I’m the kind of girl who bites her nails. I’ll stop for a couple of weeks but then one day I look down and they are gone – all chewed off. “Oh well” I say to myself “I’ll try again another day”.
The same with exercise – I start off really well and go out walking every day but then it rains, or I’m too busy, or I have a meeting scheduled at the time I would normally exercise and the exercise regime falls by the wayside.
In the past I have just accepted my lack of willpower as being part of who I am and it never occurred to me that it was affecting my work. Then I read The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari by Robin Sharma which made me realise that my lack of willpower in my personal life was having a massive and negative impact on my business!
