Step away from the deskπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ (7.25.15)


“Step away from the desk lady, you’ve been at this way too long.”

Knowing when to stay and when to go, the art of #entrepreneurship!


You know when you’ve been on your computer too long and it just freezes?πŸ€·β€β™€οΈπŸ€·β€β™€οΈπŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

Hitting control, alt, delete…and still nothing.πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–

As your patience starts to melt away, you stare pensively at the screen, waiting for “something” to happen.

Only it doesn’t. 

Ugh, what is going on you scream in your head, work already, and still, NOTHING.πŸ˜‘πŸ˜‘πŸ˜‘

So, you are forced to turn it off, unplug it and wait a few minutes and try again.πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

How many times have you had to do that in your lifetime?πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„

Turns out, life is like that as well.😏😏😏

Sometimes, you are trying SO hard to make something happen. πŸ˜₯πŸ˜₯πŸ˜₯

Like, you are giving it EVERYTHING you got. πŸ˜ͺπŸ˜ͺπŸ˜ͺ

From every angle no less.πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

And yet, NOTHING. πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈπŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈπŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ


You get frustrated.πŸ˜‘πŸ˜‘πŸ˜‘  

Angry. πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–

Sad. 😞😞😞

Maybe even shout out: β€œThat’s it, I quit.”

Only you don’t. πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

What you do, is walk away from the situation, just like when your computer freezes. πŸ₯ΆπŸ₯ΆπŸ₯Ά

You step away. πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™€οΈ

You walk AWAY from the situation and β€œREFRESH” your ideas.🌷🌷🌷

Making big dreams come true doesn’t come easy, NO MATTER WHAT THEY ARE!πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

There is a famous quote from Tom Hanks that I absolutely love:

β€œIf it wasn’t hard, everyone would do it. It’s the HARD that makes it GREAT.”

So, the next time you find yourself frustrated over a situation, no matter what it is, simply step away.πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™€οΈ

If you are constantly staring at the same four walls, seeing the same people, looking at the same shiz on your phone.  

That’s exactly what you are going to keep seeingπŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„

It’s called, a ARE IN NEED OF a change of sceneryπŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡


So, on those days when you are ready to hit your head against the wall because things aren’t quite going your way, here are some of my suggestions to get yourself back on track:

Talk a walk outside.πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™€οΈ

Go see a movie.πŸ‘€πŸ‘€πŸ‘€


Have lunch with a good friend.πŸ•πŸ”πŸŸ

Take a vacation, even if it’s for the day. Go somewhere you’ve always wanted to go only never made the time.πŸš•πŸš“πŸš—


Be around people you’ve never met before. Go to a networking meeting and talk to strangers.  You never know what ideas can come from it?πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

If you live near the ocean, go to the beach.  There is NOTHING better in this world than to breath in that ocean air.  Sure cure for anything that is bothering you.🐳🐳🐳

Go on a mental vacation. 

Read a trashy novel. 

One of those magazines that you have been collecting only never had time to get to. 

Take a trip to your local library and grab a copy of  β€œHow to Win Friends and Influence People” by Dale Carnegie. 

If you’ve never read it, get it now. 

It is a MUST-read for everyone on this planet.πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

Sign-up for a class or seminar.  Even better if it is something you know nothing about.πŸ–πŸ–πŸ–

AND last but not least and probably the most important:

Be good to yourself. 

We tend to beat ourselves up when we are frustrated or sad. 

That is exactly the time we need to be EXTRA good to ourselves. 

Good thoughts come when we are FEELING GOOD!πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

That’s a wrap!

Talk soon,

Patricia <3 always
