“Wear only great shoes” – what sort of advice is that? Well, great advice in my books, but I did actually LOL when I saw this in the book I am currently reading by Thomas Leonard, The 28 Laws of Attraction.
Thomas, as you may know, was widely considered to be the father of modern coaching and I’ve been a big fan of his work for a while, but I have never seen this statement by him before. So what does he mean?
Well this wasn’t one of the defining laws of attraction itself (though had this been on the dating rather than the personal development shelves it may well have been!). Instead it was included under law number one: be incredibly selfish.
A major part of this law is about practising extreme self-care which includes eliminating stress (Thomas emphasises this does NOT mean stress reduction, rather stress elimination as a route to extreme self-care), taking care of your appearance, what you eat, your surroundings and everything else in your environment that impacts on your well-being. Including always wearing great shoes.
If you’re practising extreme self-care, you’ll find you’re in the best possible place to serve more clients and serve them to a higher standard. You’ll also be a better friend, mother, father, wife, husband, daughter, son, or whatever role is important to you in your life.
Most of us are so busy rushing around from one thing to another, especially at this time of year, that extreme self -abuse is more likely to be true, but for your Monday Mindset task this week, I’d last to ask you how you can incorporate extreme self-care with your festive plans? Or at least make sure you’re wearing great shoes!
