A leveling out. A period of relatively little or no change. Flatness.
That’s what I think about when I think about a plateau. I feel like I’m on one.
Some days I feel like napping. Resting. Flattening out, myself.
Why? Why did my energy dip? Is it the chill in the air, the hard work I do on the weekends at the winery, the additional exercise I’ve committed to doing each day?
Michelle says there isn’t a wrong way to do this entrepreneurial thing. Or, for that matter, there isn’t a wrong way to do your life. So I have taken the past couple of weeks since my last coaching session to accept this gift of a period of rest. I’ve settled into the comfort inside my four walls and embraced my down blanket with the soft, suede-like skin and wrapped it around me. I decided to enjoy this plateau and changed how I perceive this stage.
Merriam Webster actually defines plateau as “A level of attainment or achievement.” Take that, Jen the Catalyst! Enjoy and savor what you’ve accomplished, and get fueled up for the next climb!!!
So I had a dream the other night. I was at the Orchard, digging through the beehive to get at some delicious honey.
But the Bees kept stinging. It hurt, and I wanted to stop.
But the voice in my head said- “Keep going! Even if it stings now, if you keep trying, you’ll get some luscious honey at the end.”
Golden, sweet honey.
In my dream, I kept going. I kept trying.
My dream will conquer my brain. I know it!
