Taking yourself on vacation...

Posted Nov 24 2009 7:30am
Well we just got back from an awesome beautiful vacation in Scottsdale Arizona. The weather was perfect, sunny and warm with just a few clouds everyday. We were able to sleep in and set our own schedule; Do we go for a walk or run outside or do we go for a drive to the nearest town... Our time is our own, we were definitely on vacation...
Now we are back and it has all changed... my time is no longer my own, I have to remember I have a schedule that I have to follow. Where did my freedom go?? Why can't I have the same schedule at home as we did in Scottsdale??
Did I really take myself on vacation or did I leave my other self at home? Do you ever feel like you are a completely different person when you are away from your daily life.  Things are so much easier, so much less stuff going on in your life...
To be completely honest I didn't want to go, I was stressed and tired and thinking I didn't need to go, not right now.... A part of the reason why we went to Arizona was to attend the Millionaire Entrepreneur's Summit. Oh yeah I thought, here we go again another conference, How to get rich quick, probably another infomercial....Boy did I get a new perspective ..
It was only 3 days and it was an eye opening experience into the world of these changing times and how we as Entrepreneur's need to change our mental outlook on the changing economy.
The biggest lesson that I learned is that it takes a strong mental foundation in order to move forward successfully in my professional and personal life.  Most Millionaire's have a mindset of visualizing their goals and putting them into action...
While in Scottsdale we were able to put ourselves in a place that was welcoming to some mental clarity, time was ours to decipher the messages of growth we received at the conference. It all makes so much sense, a strong foundation is one of emotional, mental, physical and financial... Our goals became so clear during our time of rest... We were able to reconnect and decipher between our roles of business partners and life partners.
Now we are back and the clarity is slipping. Why is everything still the same and I feel different? Could it be that my own resistance to change is starting to creep back in and the confusion I feel is being influenced by my own resistance to change my preconceived foundations?? Did I rediscover the person I left home while I was away???
Was it the warm air and the freedom that gave me the ability to find some clarity and is it the cold air and lack of freedom that causes the confusion??
Let me explain something, I come from the school of thought that if you work your body (workout) you will find more clarity in all parts of your life. Sure a good workout can clear your head, however if you haven't done the mental work to clear your thoughts the after glow from your intense workout can die pretty quickly.  Now I have realized that working your body physically is only one piece of the puzzle...

So now I am "working out" my mental confusion.... I am reading Barbara DeAngelis's newest book "How Did I Get Here?"... Barbara discusses confusion and how sometimes we can rely on confusion to a life of inaction. In order for me to progress, whether I am in AZ, or PA, I need to "workout" my mental confusion. In other words I need to take action in order to move forward in establishing my foundation for success.
Yes, I did take myself on vacation however my familiar enviroment of home and schedule can either sabotage my new found journey or it can help solidfy this journey...
What is my message... just take the time to evaluate your foundation and see if you maybe need to find some clarity in these changing times....Take yourself on a mental vacation and become the person you are destined to be....
