It’s not enough.
If you don’t hear these words daily, you certainly feel it.
In our hustle culture, we get sent messages all the time that there needs to be more activity, we need to take every opportunity, we need to hustle to get ahead. What is this causing us to be? What impact is this having on our mental and physical health?
As women, we put this pressure on ourselves in our career, our family life, our fitness as if we are not enough just as we are. We know we’re hustling. We know we’re stretching ourselves and we know we should stop the cycle for our health’s sake, YET we can’t seem to change it.
Here’s the thing my friend, we are not meant to go and go and go. As humans we have been designed to rest. So then what keeps us in this cycle of hustle?
Deep rooted broken soundtracks.
And that is why it’s not enough to just introduce new habits.
Creating habits is just the outer layer. When you get to the core soundtracks in your brain that are running the show, only then can the pattern be fixed. When you activate powerful brain science and change your brain at its sub conscious level, your ability to live outside of the hustle culture becomes real.
But have compassion on yourself! This hustle cycle is normal – the world wants us to overachieve. It wants us to stay stuck in hustle – achieving and performing, doing more, being more, getting more. Instead, we have to be willing to be counter-culture and put our emotional, physical and mental health first.
Headaches are my alarm. They are my reminder that I’ve been stressing about something. So I make a point to stop and ask myself; What is hustling achieving? How is this making me feel good about myself?
When you’re wired to achieve, it’s hard to change. From one type A to another, I hear you! But getting to the root of the forces driving the hustle is gold. Using the thought transformation method, you learn how you’re contributing to your own issues and you work out what stories you’re telling yourself, that are not lining up with your core values.
What is it that you need to do, to step away from this hustle and find rest and peace and abundant life?
