“True success is not defined by the number of wins, but rather the response to each lose.”
In a world that defines success by accolades, many of us live a subpar life simply because we do not feel we measure up.
Too often we noticed the appreciations of others and quickly believe that they are somehow purposed for a higher calling then others.
But the truth is that often times theatrical recognitions tends to overshadow many failures of a person.
The reality is that for everyone human being, it is a continuous fight to be the best version of themselves.
Realize that in order to live out your best days, you must decide to rise above EVERY challenge.
And know that regardless of how many times you win, is it your response to every defeat that truly defines who you are.
Rise up, keep going and refuse to settle!
As a Salon Owner, you need to make sure you’re fully protected from distraction, disruption and those around you who want different things from you. You need tohave the right protection around you. Here’s what I would recommend...⠀
To make sure you’re fully protected, you need to fill your own cup first. This is an analogy, of course, for prioritising yourself.⠀
And, don’t be mistaken, this doesn’t mean being ‘selfish’!⠀
When you’re a business owner who’s trying to grow a business, it becomes increasingly hard to make space for yourself. I’ve seen so many business owners sacrifice their own sleep, lunch breaks, days off, just so that they can do that extra bit of work they think needs doing.⠀
Prioritising yourself means you can not only be the best person you can be for yourself, but you can also be the best person for your family and ‘boss’ for your team. When you prioritise yourself, you can show up for other people.⠀
Because, I'm sorry to break it to you, if you’re tired, hungry, overwhelmed and/or stressed all the time... there’s no way you’re going to be able to successfully look after your team, your family or your business!⠀
That’s why you need to look after yourself first. Sleep well, eat well, go to the gym, make time when you don’t have time… Fill your cup first, and as often as possible.
