Here is my thought for today …
“When You Are Not In The Mood”
I received an email the other day from an agent who shared that her enthusiasm was waning and in short, she just wasn’t in the mood to work.
With what we are all experiencing these days this piece of information did not surprise me. But it did warrant a reply.
This is new territory for us and if your body is asking for a little rest it is okay to ba to back off your recent pace to refresh and re-think your future. I refer to this as “going with the flow” and natural rhythms of your body.
I believe it was Sir Isaac Newton who said, “An object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion stays in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force.” If I am correct, this is referred to as his 1st Law.
There in lies the danger. If you succumb to this feeling (mood) and totally shut down, you will soon find it extremely difficult to get the “old bod” back in motion again. I am not saying you do not deserve a rest now and then. I am saying don’t go dark.
Another thought differentiates between an amateur and a true professional. You have probably heard me share this thought before. An amateur does things when they want to do them, or when they feel like doing them. A professional does things when it is time to do them. (We don’t care if you feel like it or not.)
So, where is today’s message? Allow yourself some breathing room. Yes. Take a much needed break when needed. Yes. Understand however, that the longer you stay dormant, the harder it will be to get back in the game.
To borrow from a previous message: “The mind quits first.” Make sure it is time to allow your mood to take over.
