The majority of people count down the days until their next vacation, the time where they get to escape their boring mundane reality that brings them no joy. Their only release comes from crossing off days on their calendar and hoping that their vacation comes just a bit earlier. What if you could create a life that you don’t feel the need to escape from? What if you love your Monday morning at work just as much as you love your Saturday night with friends partying in a new country.
Sounds extremely far-fetched, doesn’t it?
Well, it doesn’t have to be.
In a discussion with the OBA fam community the other day, the topic of burnout and feeling unable to let go and being attached to the outcome came up. Almost everyone suggested a vacation as the solution to any of these issues.
Now don’t get me wrong, vacations are awesome.
I love vacations.
But the reason you constantly crave one is because you're overwhelmed with all the stuff in your life and you feel the need to get away from it.
You need to distance yourself from the situations in order to feel like you can relax. To escape reality for a while.
But what if you could just relax and feel that way in every single situation?
The only reason you feel overwhelmed is because you're clinging to an outcome or you're resisting the things that you need to do.
By letting things flow through you instead of keeping them inside of you. This way you'll feel good all the time.
I understand it’s easier said than done, but it just needs practice.
You basically don’t want to cling and resist.
Instead, you want to let things just flow and let them be as they are.
So if you have a goal, for example, to sign a certain client or to make a certain amount of money or whatever it is that you have, don't put a date on it.
If you put a date on it, then you're going to have doubts as you're approaching the date, you're going to be like, “I need to get that outcome by this time” and this doesn't let it flow.
Suddenly you're clinging or resisting and it's going to stay inside of you.
Or if you're like, “I really want to sign this client specifically” or “I really want to sign this person on the sales call.” It's like you're shooting yourself in the foot.
Maybe that person is not meant to be a client but now you're clinging to that result. If you don't sign that person on a sales call, then you're going to be negatively impacted by it and feel as if you failed to achieve one of your goals.. On the other hand, if you approach a sales call being open to whatever outcome and aiming to give it your best, you’re letting the universe deliver its side of the deal.
So you're still aiming towards your goal, but you're open to the outcome, you're open to how it should unfold.
This is your life now, you don’t want to wake up one day and be like “Oh my God, I've been working straight for two years, I really need a vacation.”
Is that how you want to live your life?
Only enjoying your vacations?
Or would you rather enjoy every single moment of your life?
If I had a wish for you, it wouldn't be, “I hope that she gets that client or I hope that she makes that amount of money or I hope that she does this.” What I would wish for is that you would no longer need a vacation, that you love your life so much that your normal mundane days would feel just as good as being on vacation.
That's what I want for you.
Regardless of your situation, decide to enjoy whatever it is that you're doing at that moment and not cling to a mindset of “Once I get this, then I'll be good.”
Give it your best and trust the universe. Let things flow and you won't need a vacation. You'll feel good with your day to day life. Even the little things can be exciting.
I hope that helps you create a more fulfilling life where everyday feels like a vacation!
