Let’s face it! Life as a business owner, entrepreneur or top professional is not for the faint-hearted. It takes energy, commitment and dedication, in addition to big dreams, to make it big in a competitive field.
There’s a lot of planning and legwork involved in earning a significant income; you must:
And then, there are the demands of professional development. It’s a tall order.
If you’ve wished for the consistent power of the “energizer bunny,” you know that wishing doesn’t make it so. There are ways, however, to harness all that latent power to maximize your productivity. It can be easier than you think to improve your day-to-day focus and concentration, and boost your energy, allowing you to accomplish more each day.
As a top professional, you know all too well how unpredictable every day can be. Routine tasks never seem to end. It’s a case of do – do it again -- and keep on doing. Most days are anything but routine!
If there were a simple formula to address all those challenges of time and energy that currently plague you, would you be interested?
- Continually prospect for clients;
- Follow up all leads;
- Perfect your pitches;
- Draft proposals;
- Work with demanding clients;
- Be a sort of mind reader, on occasion;
- Prepare and submit documents;
- Negotiate contract terms;
- Attend industry events;
- Schedule some desk time;
- Stay on top of trends;
- Always be available by phone or text;
- Respond to emails; and, finally,
- Reserve some time for yourself and your family, and a “life.”
Becoming a Better You
Do you want to be the kind of person who is always up for a new task or an evening of fun, who isn't deterred by disappointment, who is unfazed by stress? Do you want to glide through each day with a smile, full of confidence that the future will turn out just the way you planned?
Have you ever wondered if some people are simply born that way, or if there are specific things you can do to enable those attitudes? If you ask around, chances are that those achievers -- the people you admire -- would say something like: "I eat real food, I get enough sleep, I exercise regularly.”
They might add, “I enjoy my life, and I work hard to achieve my goals.” That really doesn't tell you anything specific, does it? You try to do all that too, right?
If you're often tired, discouraged, and not on your “A Game,” we understand. The answer to your dilemma, though, contains a basic principle that the scientific community has acknowledged for generations. Grandma knew it too! You've heard it before, perhaps endlessly:
"You are what you eat."
Modern science confirms that the food we consume is the primary building block of a successful life. And, arguably, the most vital ingredient is protein.
Take Charge of Your Habits
As a busy professional, you know that schedules are often thrown to the winds: You’re running late, so breakfast means coffee from the nearest drive-through window. A client calls unexpectedly, and you agree to arrange a meeting during the lunch hour. Another missed meal.
To combat that mid-afternoon sinking spell, you opt for another tall coffee, or a sugary soft drink, accompanied by something sweet and gooey for extra energy. Then, chances are, you’re too tired to cook a healthy dinner, so you grab a quick burger and a beer with friends before heading home to catch up on paperwork.
Your daily routine is, too often, one of “no routine.”
Perhaps nomadic tribes and ancient hunter-gatherers instinctively knew the formula to keep body and mind in sync, and energized for the rigors they faced. Life then wasn’t easy, and few, if any of us, would trade modern convenience for that kind of existence. However, we can all take lessons from the past and apply them, with a little help from science and technology, to enrich our 21st Century lifestyle.
It needn't be a struggle; you don't need to feel trapped by chaos and stress. You can get beyond the caffeine and "energy bar" routine. If you're in an unpredictable, people-centered service career, here's what you need to know.
Harness the Power of Protein
The food we consume is the fuel our bodies need to keep going. The right fuel can work wonders, supercharge your energy, improve brain function and motivation, boost your spirits and lead you to a better future!
If you’ve attended motivational seminars, you understand that mental and physical prowess are related. What you may not have connected — at least, until now — is that health and wealth are also intertwined.
Eat right, and lasting wellness is the result. Neglect your body, and optimum performance is virtually impossible. That’s not the path to success and financial freedom. All the motivational seminars in the world won’t help if you’re always tired. You can't reach your goals when you run out of physical and mental energy halfway through the day.
