Entrepreneurs are the game-changers who impact the world in an unimaginable way.
While there are lots of people who are doing good deeds in the world, technology has nudged us to a new era of entrepreneurship where more people can combine passion, profit, purpose and profession skills together to create their ideal jobs and live extraordinary lives.
However, since these “world-denters” are ambitious in nature, they often ignore their own health and well-being.
Here’s 3 reasons why entrepreneurs should chill out and take a vacation once for a while.
Reason #1 Physical & Mental Rejuvenation
You work super hard to start, maintain and run your business.
You are the leader who takes care of thousands of people’s lives.
You generate millions of dollars month in and month out.
These are all great. But have you ever paused and given yourself a break?
To be a productive superhero, you need to give your body, mind, emotion and spirit some quiet time to recharge.
It takes massive energy, effort and life-force to make things happen and there’s a limit to your physicality.
You need to strategically schedule in short or long vacation times so that you can get away from the chaos and allow yourself to calm down and re-center your core being.
Go out of your office. Leave your familiar city. Explore and have some fun!
You’ll come back with more creativity, productivity and inspiration to take your business to the next level.
Reason #2 Spend Time With Your Loved Ones
How would it feel if you have achieved everything in your life, conquered every tough challenge, arrived the top of the world… only to find that you are alone celebrating with yourself?
That probably sucks.
You have your friends. You have your family. You have your lovers. You have PEOPLE you want to spend quality time with.
Money is merely a freedom paper.
Do not make the mistake of trading off all your time for money and regret not spending time with those who matter the most.
Reason #3 Your Life Is Bigger Than Your Company
Your mission and purpose in life is important, no doubt.
But be careful of getting stuck with the same people in the same environment for too long and repeating the same routine day in and day out.
Staying home is warm and sweet, but too much comfort will kill your innate curiosity of finding out what the world really looks like.
Do not dampen that fire.
Be intentional about discovering new places.
Have new hobbies that require you to leave your zone of familiarity.
Schedule your quarterly and yearly big vacation time (with your loved ones) and travel around this beautiful planet Earth.
When you are stimulated in such diverse ways, your vision and mission will definitely evolve to the next level, and you’re more than welcome to use your entrepreneurial spirit to build something legendary.
