I've had a lot of my clients on as past podcast host, so you might have heard them talking already anyway, 2023 is going to be an awesome year. Let's do this together. Hello, magical friend. Welcome back to another purpose and pixie dust podcast. This tip, thursday car talk with Lindsay. That's me. I'm Lindsay if you do not know yet. So I'm driving to work and we have had like two days of intense all day fog and I'm over it like, I feel like we are living in um, that show once upon a time. Did you ever watch that back in the day with the, I forget what it was on abc maybe and it brought like story characters to life. So there was like Snow White and the evil queen. Anyway, I feel like it was always foggy in that and that's literally what I've been thinking of. I'm like, this is so eerie. Anyway, so I'm driving nice and slow anyway, so I figured I should pop in here and give you a little bit step and I heard this one yesterday in a podcast that I listened to for coaches. I believe it is called the Rising Coach podcast with Sophia, I'm not gonna pronounce her last thing, right? So I'm not going to try, but if you type in the rising coach podcast, if you're also a coach, um you'll be able to find it, she's from Australia and She was doing like a top 10 mistakes that coaches make podcast and I thought it was, I'm only halfway through to be perfectly honest because there's a lot of stuff in it that she's going over and I really, a lot of it really resonated with me with my own coaching business as I coach women entrepreneurs, um some network marketers, but a lot of women who are doing their own businesses as well. And one thing that she said yesterday that really stuck out to me was that first of all, we all know that we need to be consistent in our work, right? And showing up on social media and showing up for our clients and doing our mindset work and taking care of ourselves, but it can be exhausting right? And this is why I think she said consistency is not the same as constantly, so just let that soak in for a minute consistency and constantly are not the same word and I think so many times we think we have to be doing things constantly, we have to always be on social media, um you know, we have to always be talking about our products and services, we have to always be showing up in a certain way, we have to always be positive, we have to, if you have a gym goal, then you always have to be eating right and it's like this constantly mentality versus the consistency mentality and it just really struck home for me. So an example that she gave was, you know, getting fit and working out, you don't constantly have to be in the gym to do that right, You just maybe go to the gym monday through friday or whatever that looks like for you 345 days a week, you're doing home workouts, you're running. And I was thinking about my own marathon training in my mind, I think that I have gotten so bogged down with it because I feel like I constantly have to be running, like there's something I'm doing every day when in reality, if I look at the training schedule, it is not, it's not like that, you know, I have a long run walk on the weekend and I have, it's well, it did start off with three training runs through the week, but scale back from 2 to 1. Stay tuned to hear how that goes in january, but anyway, that's like a whole nother podcast, but that was part of my thing is I think I really got in my head with that thinking that I had to constantly be doing training some sort of training and in doing that when we have a day where we're off, where we don't feel like it where maybe we're sick, you know, life happens, we're traveling, then we get down on ourselves because we're like, well I didn't show up for my business today, but you're allowed to not do that, right? So I really want you to think what consistency means for you, because you know, that's one of my three pillars, I firmly believe as you're growing your business, you have to have quality content, you have to make quality connections and you have to show up consistently consistently. Now. I'm getting my own head about which word to use. Um so consistency, what does that mean to you? So for you, maybe you're only posting on social twice a week and it works for you fine. You know, if your audience is expecting that if they know you do this value will post on monday and you do a freebie drop on the other and that's really the only two days you consistently show up, then that's fine. It doesn't have to be every day. It doesn't have to be five times a day every day. Same thing with connections with people, if you have a really good schedule going like you do follow ups on friday, you connect with new people on monday and Wednesday, it doesn't have to be every day of the week and I think that constantly mentality is really what burns us out what really turns our mindset shifts or shift our mindset from, we're really proud of ourselves, we're doing really good things too. Like I always have to be doing more like that concept of more and more and more and if you're a highly competitive person, if you're a perfectionist, those both of those words describe me like I'm raising my hand right now, talking to myself, it can be really hard to allow ourselves to step back and I think this is what other coaches mean and other entrepreneurs that I follow when they say working less can sometimes be better because you're being more focused on your time and you're not really getting in your head about that. I always have to be doing more, I have to be showing up more, so just remember more isn't always better. We don't have to constantly be doing all of the things, so let's spend a little less time doing the things that bring more, value the quality over quantity idea and see how that shift helps us in our business because we're going to get some more time back. We're going to feel really good about what we're doing really accomplished. I feel like overall, if we can really focus on the consistency and what that means for us and leave the constantly at the door, we're going to see a huge shift in 2023 so this was short quick, I hope you found this helpful if you did please screenshot this, share it in your stories, tagged me, share it with a friend, share it with your teammates.
