On Own It! The Podcast 144, Nicola discusses with Jo Dodds the question; “Do you have a life too, or do you just work, work, work, delaying having what you want until after you’ve achieved success?”
In the Show…
Jo is a consultant, trainer, speaker and podcaster and this week she’s been on stage speaking at Tom Hua’s event. A man in the front row said he didn’t understand a word of what she said but that she had a nice face which matched her personality! And another man she met in the lift admired her beautiful red shoes and likened her to Theresa May, only on a shoe basis obviously.
Nicola’s been out and about in Stoupa, attending an 80th birthday party held at a venue with a beautiful sea view, and loving doing some FB Ads for a world-class DJ with a global audience. She’s amazed at how inexpensively he’s adding Likes to his Facebook page every day.
Client Challenge of the Week
Something that both Jo and Nicola have in common is recent bereavements and they agree that nothing focuses the mind like death when it comes to resolving to enjoy every moment of every day now, and living in the present. Three deaths in the family prompted Jo to change her life and to stop delaying gratification until Some Day. This gives her more time to sing in two choral societies, play the piano, and practise mindfulness and enjoy her daughter, Little Dodsy, and family life.
Nicola feels lucky that moving to Greece helped her to achieve the same thing, being able to look at beauty and enjoy sunshine most days from March to November, time to pursue hobbies and a local social life both contributing to her life beyond the laptop.
They both agree too that happiness and gratitude and feeling lucky and allowing these to raise your vibration lead more easily to success, when so many make the mistake of expecting it to happen the other way around.
Are you making a life too, or working yourself into an early grave when there are no promises of happiness later. Grab it now is the theme of today’s show.
