8 Ways to Love Yourself and Build Resilience for Your Life and Business
I choose the path of solopreneurs because I love freedom and flexibility to work at my own pace. I can assign my own role or title and create services based on my ideas. As I am working solo, I often face challenges, setbacks and I don’t give up yet because solopreneurship is part of developing myself, to unlock my gifts and talents.
What is the motivation to keep going, to keep moving forward, to build a sustainable business, and to love the business even more?
I would say, why not use the positive energy of love to empower yourself and your solopreneurship journey so you build resilience.
Let’s take a look at how to love yourself more and understand your inner world, to create a more positive outlook for your business. Here are the 8 ways to love yourself:
- Your well-being is a priority
Your well-being is the foundation of your success. You don’t want to be successful at the cost of your physical and mental health. Make sure that you have enough sleep while you’re working on your business. Nourish your body with healthy food and safeguard your mind with the information you want to receive. Make time for self-care and make sure you have a balance between work and life.
- Identify your core values, what makes you happy?
Start understanding your core values, what makes you happy in your life or working in your business? Doing things according to your core values means you are in alignment with yourself and loving yourself even more. Choosing friends and partners that share the same core values with us can make us happy
- Practice appreciation
Practice appreciation is looking for things that we appreciate can ease stress, and at the same time, you focus on good things and may open up new possibilities or new perspectives.
This quote “We learn from our mistakes/failures” is not complete. We are learning from the reflection of our experiences, the wins, and the mistakes/failures. In reflection, we draw deeper meaning and we can learn from the experience to move toward the future.
- Express your creativity
There’s a quote, “everyone is born as an artist”. Expressing your creativity helps you to get creative with ideas and supports your happiness and mental health. What hobbies or interests do you want to cultivate for fun?
- Dream about Your Future
Although we are living in the now, it’s okay to envision the future. Dreaming about your future helps you seek out what kind of life and business you truly desire and open up your thinking for more possibilities. Use the love energy or positive emotion to envision your future. You will be hopeful and have a positive outlook about the future instead of focusing on dissatisfaction with the current situation.
- Growth and Learning
Personal growth is the path to help you love yourself even more. If you are not growing, you will be stagnant and unhappy. By growing and keep learning, you will unlock more of your potential and experience more satisfaction and fulfillment with life.
- Sense of Humor
The quote “To succeed in life, you need three things: a wishbone, a backbone and a funny bone” reminds people to have dreams, work hard and persevere, and take a look at life not too seriously or too self-absorbed. This funny bone reminds us that it is important to laugh and have fun, enjoy at where we are and what we are doing.
With 8 ways to love yourself, the stronger we love ourselves, we will change our being, and be willing to do to attract the kind of life and business that we truly desire. Transformation starts from changing our inner world by loving ourselves more.
