How I maintain my energy when delivering a three day live retreat for our high end group coaching program

Transcript:

Hey, good morning! It’s Melinda here and I’m sitting out here in the early morning on my back porch, overlooking my backyard and I’m just taking it all in, because we just finished our three-day live retreat with our Accelerator Coaching Program. And I was asked many times throughout this program: “How ar you keeping your energy up?” Because not only did we meet and have sessions from 9:00 to 5:00 every day, but then after one day we all loaded up and went to Kate’s house and had a cookout and dinner. And in the next day we all loaded up and came to my house and had a full-moon fire circle and dinner and we connected and had a lot of fun. And so it was non-stop, consistently for the past three days. And people were asking me: “How are you doing this? How are you facilitating the sessions? How are you then still staying connected with us and keeping your energy up?”

And here’s my secret: it’s all about the self-care. People over rate and overlook this and you cannot miss this one thing. And here’s how I do it: I make sure, before this ever begins, before we ever come into this event I have done self-care and I have filled myself up so much that I am giving of the overflow with my energy, my emotions, my brainpower, so that when the event starts I’m from the place of overflow, so I have a lot to give right from the beginning. And then throughout the event I’m doing little significant things to maintain my self-care; it might be take five minutes, go out, walk outside barefoot in the grass and soak in some vitamin D and sun, it might be taking a few dance breaks privately on my own and moving the energy through my body so it’s not staying stuck anywhere. But I maintain my self-care throughout it all. And then I have already planned my self-care afterwards, so I know I don’t have to worry about being depleted because I’ve got my self-care plan in place, so when this is done I’m taking care of myself to rejuvenate again.

So that’s today. Our live event ended yesterday, I had my team over here for one final debrief digestion and ritual last night, we were here until about ten o’clock, and now today, tomorrow, Monday – complete self-care, total relaxation, juvenation, doing that which lights me, up so I can bring myself back to overflow. So when you maintain your self-care you can maintain your energy even when you’re on or delivering. A lot of the facilitators and teachers that I’ve been around, they do it in peaks and valleys; they’re on, give, give, give, deplete, deplete, deplete, then they crash and burn. And they have to be disconnected, they can’t interact with their people. And a lot of times I hear other teachers and facilitators say: “Well, after I’m on the stage I have to go away and I’ve got to recoup and I can’t be around anybody or else they’ll suck the energy out of me. I’ve got to protect my energy.” And my belief is that when you practice extraordinary self-care in the
midst of what you’re delivering, what project you’re working on, what job you’re in you can be on because you are taking care of your energy and yourself.

So I just wanted to share that with you as I’m in the midst of my self-care. This is the only work I’m gonna be doing, but this was really heavy on my heart and I wanted to share this with you, because I think a lot of people can benefit this. So remember: self-care is not a reward for what you do or a project completed; it’s a requirement for what’s to come. Let’s self-care be on both ends and throughout everything and you’ll maintain your energy. Alright, I got to go do nothing.

What does 10 days in South Africa, plus 5 days in England topped off with 4 days in Durango Colorado create?

Hey there, good morning! It’s Melinda here.

It’s been a while since I have connected with you. And just like what my post says, you know. I’ve spent 10 days in South Africa at the beginning of this month. Then I went straight to five days in England. I just got back from four days in Durango, Colorado. What does all this bring? Well, a lot of people said I was nuts for doing that much travel in one month. And I got to tell you, there were times when I thought I was nuts for doing that much travel in one month, but what it really brings is extraordinary self-care. One of the things that I want to share with you is that self-care is not a reward for hard work done. It’s a precursor to rejuvenate for what’s to come and actually, it’s both. So many people say: “Well, when I get this project done, or once this promotion has launched, or when I hit this goal, then I’ll do the self-care.” While that’s fun and important, making sure that you have self-care as a precursor to what’s coming is equally as important in our business. We’ve got a lot of things percolating, and a lot of new ideas popping, some reinvention happening, some incredible projects that we’re lifting off, and right, now we’re right in between of a lot of things that have been completed. A lot of things coming up in fruition and when I was in the midst of all this travel, it occurred to me that I’m living the both; that I’ve had a lot of projects I’m rejuvenating from, and, I’m rejuvenating for what’s to come. And I built in a month of self-care. Now, I did it unconsciously, but it’s my normal, so it was just another part of my self-care pattern.

So, remember self-care is not just a reward for hard work done. It’s equally as important to make sure it’s for rejuvenating for what’s to come in the future. Make sure you do both, and the reason I was able to do this travel is because I’ve set up a business and a team that allows me to do that. It actually allows our entire team to practice self-care while we all work on the projects. The workings of our business are automated, and, organized as such, that it’s possible to do it without missing in the coming months.

We’re gonna be sharing a lot of materials and information with you about how you can create a business for yourself, so that you can practice this extraordinary self-care, and, then live the life of your dreams.

So, stay tuned we’ve got a lot of great things coming for you but in the meantime, ask yourself: “Am I waiting to reward myself with self-care? Or can I rejuvenate so I can bring all of me to my business, all of my creativity, all of my inspiration to my business my clients, my impact that I’m making?” Click below, I’d love to hear your self-care and how you rejuvenate for what’s to come!
