So a couple years ago I attended a transformation coaching seminar and the instructor was coach Chris Lee.
Chris Lee is also Lewis Howes, from the School of Greatness podcast, coach. So this guy is major and he is on the podcast often.
During one of his recent interviews with Lewis, he talked about your “Personal Environment” and he doesn’t go deep into that idea in the podcast but I have been chewing on this concept for months.
I believe in stewardship deeply. Being responsible, being a good neighbor, making sure that those who are in my personal environment comfortable.
My husband and I are on Daufuskie Island in South Carolina. During our stay we make sure to talk to the local people who live here, support small businesses and clean up trash alongside the roads. She is just a little island, but we have so much love for it and we feel like we are being good stewards of the place we love to visit.
So how do we become good stewards of ourselves? And our personal environment?
been really thinking about this deeply and truly.
While on vacation a lot of stuff comes up for me. My health, my weight, am I doing what I’m supposed to be doing? And I’ve decided that I’m done wasting my vacation and relaxation time because I haven’t done the work daily so that I can enjoy the week fully.
Daily work of doing what my body needs, doing the everyday menial tasks, making the tough choices so that when it’s time to rest and play, all is tidy nothing is in limbo.
Getting things on the calendar ahead of time.
Checking it and updating it every day.
Knowing where I want to spend my time and energy.
Resting when I need to rest.
Setting an alarm to wake up daily at the same time.
Knocking down a mile so my brain and body are healthy.
Eating the right things so that when I indulge I’m not rattled with guilt.
Making sure my brain in under control and I’m not indulging in obsessive thinking or negative self-talk
Knowing Where You Are Going
Knowing who you are and what you want
Changing and taking action so that you are happy with who you are
Seeking guidance when you are lost
Being in control of your own life, time and destiny
For your words
Being a leader in your own life
Communicating feelings and resolving differences
Creating healthy boundaries for those who aren’t adding to your life experience in a positive way
Making sure you are mentally healthy! It’s YOUR responsibility!
We create environments everywhere we are. Your home is an environment, your car, your office, and you are responsible for being a good steward.
Keep that grass cut, water the flowers, plant new things, pull out the dead ones, and put some fun music on. I’ll bring drinks.
Talk to you next week,
