“In the rush culture of entrepreneurship, we often forget the power of simply being. It’s OK to take time to just breathe and be present.”

Being vs Doing Mode

Entrepreneurship isn’t always easy even though online it looks like your internet heroes achieve their successes overnight. Nomadic entrepreneurs are even more challenges because aside from focusing on building a sustainable business that they love working on, they also deal with changes like switching home, community and workplace.

After 5+ years of nomadding and pursuing her entrepreneurial dreams, Nienke Nina shares her personal experiences to decrease the pressure by focusing on being in being-mode rather than always in doing-mode. Like Nienke Nina often shares on the podcast, β€˜β€˜The coconuts don’t taste that great if you’re stressed and feeling burned out’’ From chatting with 150+ entrepreneurs, we learned that the most successful entrepreneurs focus on being mode.

Key Takeaways from This Episode About Taking Time for Yourself to Reset

Taking a Step Back from Fast-Paced Nomading

These past few months, I’ve found myself reevaluating my lifestyle as a digital nomad, with a keen focus on redesigning it in a way that offers more freedom and fulfillment. I’ve understood that being a nomad doesn’t mean I have to be constantly on the move. It’s important for me to find my own rhythm and balance.

When you’ve been a digital nomad for a long time, always changing environments it’s normal to start feeling a certain level of fatigue and a longing for stability. If you’re reading this and you think to yourself β€œWait, I’m going through the same thing!” Then you may find the idea of ‘part-time nomading’ appealing the same way that I did.

It’s very important to maintain a balance between our work and personal life. In our quest for continuous travel and work, you could be dedicating less and less time for yourself. And that’s not good because you’re only setting yourself out for an impending burnout. It’s not about constantly moving, but about finding fulfillment and balance in your lifestyle. Personal time, continual learning, and maintaining a healthy work-life balance are the most important part of your nomad journey. As a digital nomad, your lifestyle is constantly evolving. Be open to changes, you might be surprised to see where they just might take you.

Building a Personal Connection with Your Business

As an entrepreneur, your personal journey of aligning your passion with your business is a transformative process. So don’t let the grind culture pressure you into rushing things. Take time to reflect on your personal interests, values, and goals. What drives you? What are you passionate about? What are your aspirations in life? Having a clear understanding of these aspects of yourself is key to forming a personal connection with your business.

In my experience, establishing a personal connection with your business leads to more fulfillment. It makes the work you do feel less like a chore and more like a personal mission, which can be incredibly motivating.Β 

Remember that this is not a one-time process. As you grow and evolve, so too should your business. Regularly reflect on your interests and goals, and adjust your business accordingly. This will ensure that your business remains a true reflection of you.Β 

Prioritizing Self-growth and Learning

Self-esteem and self-love play a vital role in personal growth. It’s essential to celebrate your achievements, no matter how big or small they may be. Establish a routine where you take time each day to reflect on the things you’re proud of. This simple practice can significantly improve your self-esteem and cultivate self-love. Trust me; it’s a game-changer!Β 

Continuous learning is the key to personal and professional development. It’s not just about mastering a new skill or expanding your professional knowledge; it’s about nurturing your curiosity, pushing your boundaries, and becoming a more well-rounded person.

But always remember the importance of balance. In our quest for growth and learning, we often push ourselves to the brink of exhaustion. It’s essential to remember that taking a step back, slowing down, and relaxing are also part of the growth process. Your mind needs rest to absorb new information and experiences. Embrace these elements, and you’ll find yourself thriving on your personal growth journey.

Making Genuine Connections Beyond Business Needs

Not every interaction has to be tied to business needs. While it’s essential to make professional connections, it’s equally important to establish personal, heart-to-heart relationships. These are the connections that bring joy, shared experiences, and a sense of belonging, especially when you’re far from your home base.

Try to engage with others on a deeper level. Share your personal stories, listen to theirs, and find common ground beyond work. It could be shared hobbies, interests, or experiences. Every person you meet has their own unique story and perspective that can enrich your own understanding and worldview. These meaningful connections can also contribute to your personal growth. They can provide new insights, challenge your beliefs, and help you reflect and become an overall better version of yourself. They can turn into lifelong friendships that remain constant even as your nomadic lifestyle takes you to different corners of the world.

Take the time to nurture these relationships. Keep in touch, show genuine interest, and be there for each other. Genuine connections are not about the quantity but the quality of relationships you form.

Cultivating Self-love and Maintaining Self-esteem

Always prioritize self-care and personal growth in your daily routine. A valuable exercise I’ve found is setting aside time each day to reflect on the things you’re proud of. It can be big achievements or even small victories. Each day, I try to find a quiet moment, free from distractions, and reflect on my achievements. How did it make me feel and why does it matter to me? This could be as simple as finishing a task you’ve been procrastinating on or as significant as reaching a major career milestone.

The goal is not to boast or feed your ego, but rather to acknowledge and appreciate your efforts. This simple, daily practice can reinforce positive self-perception and cultivate a sense of self-love. Sometimes, all it takes is a few minutes each day to reflect on the things you’re proud of. So, try integrating this practice into your routine, and see the positive impact it can have on your lifestyle.
