Busting out moves on the pole doesn’t come easy.
In fact, it’s damn hard.
Requires patience, hard work, and a good teacher…
And dedication. Which is why I’m having a private lesson each week with Annie, my Pole Witch Superteacher.
Today she had me working on my muscle-up, which is as difficult as it sounds… and it’s pretty hard on the old elbows.
So Annie reminded me how important it is to take care of myself and my elbows.
Specifcally, she told me to self-massage.
But it got me thinking, because as business owners and entrepreneurs we should all be self-massaging. (Fnar)
Okay, all puerile innuendoes aside, what I mean by that is: we don’t do a very good job of looking after ourselves. We work all the hours, all the days, and we’re tough on ourselves. Too tough, sometimes. We don’t give ourselves the credit we deserve.
And what we deserve, when we’re working as hard as we do, is a little indulgence.
We deserve time to self-massage.
To soothe those aching brain muscles.
Because you can’t look after your clients’ best interests if you’re falling apart yourself. I can’t bust out badass hench pole moves if my elbows are damaged, right? And you can’t bust out your best value for your clients if you’re strung out, stressed, and miserable.
So do me a favour: set aside a little time this evening for some self-lovin’. A little gentle self-massage.
You deserve it.
I’m all about looking after yourself first, because only then can you give your best to your clients.
