I moved this past weekend and am now living exactly where I have wanted to live for a while now (that’s the power of visioning and vision boards ). In moving and settling in I got to thinking about the impact of your environment on your business.
Environments have energy that can either enhance or detract from your productivity, creativity and work joy. The quality of light, floor plan, view (both out your window and how you feel when you look around the room), air quality, etc. all contribute to that energy. What impact is the energy of your current environment having on your business?
Size matters. It’s not necessarily about square footage as much as a feeling of spaciousness and expansiveness, even luxury. What I mean is that you want your space to reflect the vision you have for your life and business. Just like with mindset work that says if you want to earn six figures in your business you must think like a six figure business owner, if you want your environment to support your six figure dreams, you need to live like a six figure earner. Does your home/office reflect where you want to go in life? If you want another analogy, think of a goldfish, they are capable of staying small or growing a foot long. Their growth is based on the size of the bowl they live in. Keep a goldfish in a tiny bowl and she stays tiny, put her in a huge tank and she will grow and grow. Are you giving yourself enough space and inspiration in your environment to get huge?
While I’m on the subject of environments, don’t forget to include the other living things you spend your time with. Several studies over the years have proven that plants keep your air healthy and clean and add beauty to a room; pets give you love and laughs which keep you healthy and happy and you are the average of the five people you spend the most time with when it comes to income and overall life satisfaction.
