There is something
about the ‘Escape’
For a moment
That you have extracted yourself from something
Some force that you were with
Beholding too even….
The word escape conjures up images
Of taking your moment – or at least it does for me
Seize the moment and escape !!!
Now melodrama over,
When you feel the NEED to escape
There is a whole new motivation
It is driven by the basic concept of
Now Maslow built a whole hierarchy around it
and every conflict known to humanity
It about Needs and Wants and the tug of war that ensues
If I said to you – you need to take a break
Its because you look like you need to – energetically or physically
One of the MOST important things I encourage my Mentees
Whether in the Business or Spiritual Development Mentorship programs
Well actually all workshops on development…
Is to factor in the time for yourself FIRST
START there and build around it
It makes sense though doesn’t it ?
You are where everything starts
So start there
you will be
Many times I discuss the fact
that you are the bottleneck to your own success
because you wait till you feel the need to escape
Rather then having the objective time out
and feeling motivated to return to your passion
Escape vs passionately motivated.
Leave the ‘Escaping’ to the marketing slogans on the holidays away
You will have already marked out time for them before you start
Its too late when you feel the need to escape.
It is NOT too late though.
If you are in the grips of ‘help me escape….’
Know you are feeling the need to escape
Factor in your NEXT escape
And you can work towards it.
For over 25 years my husband used to slog his way to Easter
Knowing that he was escaping
It kept him going from Xmas break.
Now that he has started a business from nothing in his 50’s
(Something he is actually passionate about let me tell you !)
And because he has spent some 30 years slogging his way through his days
He grinned at the prospect of escaping at Easter
Grinning vs praying for the day to come quicker so he could escape.
Sure we escaped,
yet it was escaping the everyday scenery
Not the everyday slog.
Escape for the right reasons
Not because you feel you can’t function if you don’t
Because it a little bit naughty and fun
