07 Feb 60: Why You Might Need to Drop The Ball to Achieve More Balance with Emily Ransone
Do you feel like you have a pretty good balance in your life?
Sometimes, it can feel like we are on the hamster wheel of life just trying to get by. This is generally a good indicator that something is out of balance. We have to step off that hamster wheel and into the driver’s seat to find the positive momentum we sometimes desperately need.
That’s not to say it would be easy though. Growth requires us to be challenged and pushed beyond the boundaries of our comfort zone.
In this episode of The Dr. Kinney Show, I sat down with Emily Ransone to talk about how we can replace the busyness with more balance and achieve the type of growth we have been searching for.
Emily was one of those high achievers that looked great on the outside. Leading a 14-year career in corporate America, then owning two successful office furniture dealerships and two commercial real estate start-ups. But on the inside, she was deteriorating to the point where her body couldn’t produce a baby. She felt depleted, disillusioned, and full of despair.
Reinventing herself and her company through discovering the Entrepreneurial Operating System® (EOS®) she was able to turn everything around and today leads a healthy business and life. Emily was able to tap into an innovative way of running her $50 million company so that she was able to reclaim control and free up her time to focus on what she really loves to do.
Her book “Growth Junkies Unite” is a simple, effective guide of the tools and disciplines she has implemented on her journey to revolutionizing leadership. Her simple yet powerful mission is to make work FEEL good.
In Today’s Episode We Discuss:
- How we all have periods of evolution and revolution
- Why we all need the power of focus
- Learning how to say no
- How sometimes dropping the ball is a good thing
- The power of asking for help when you need it
- Why you have to take care of yourself first if you want to care for others
- How to get positive momentum with a gratitude journal
This episode was packed with tons of tools, tips, and advice on how you can start changing your life for the better. I love how Emily points out that rock bottom isn’t always a bad thing. It can be a necessary experience that we have to have before we start growing into the people we have always wanted to be.
