From Coffee to Success: How Small Changes Transformed My Life and Business

Ever have a friend suggest something that completely changes your perspective? That’s what happened to me when a buddy asked if I’d run a mini-marathon with him. Suddenly, I was lacing up my running shoes and hitting the pavement. But here’s the kicker – I quickly realized that running just wasn’t sustainable for me at that moment in my life.

Instead of giving up, I decided to pivot. Rather than adding more to my routine, I looked at what I could remove. Cue the caffeine. It was a tough choice, but I knew it could have a big impact on my mental and physical health.

So, I swapped out my morning coffee for a big glass of water. And let me tell you, the results were astounding. Not only did my energy levels skyrocket, but I also found myself waking up naturally, without the need for an alarm clock.

But here’s where it gets interesting: by drinking more water, I inadvertently started waking up earlier, thanks to frequent trips to the restroom. This newfound morning routine became my sanctuary, a time to write, reflect, and grow.

And amidst all this, I couldn’t ignore the advice of my doctor. As someone with bipolar disorder, I knew that caffeine wasn’t doing me any favors. So, I made the conscious decision to prioritize my mental health and ditch the caffeine for good.

Here’s the kicker: since making these changes, I’ve been waking up to anywhere from 10-15 new followers daily. That’s over 27,000 followers over 5 years! And let’s not forget the physical transformation – I’ve lost a whopping 60 pounds.

So, what does this have to do with business? Everything. Just as in business, it’s crucial to recognize when something isn’t working and pivot accordingly. By making small, strategic changes, we can unlock new opportunities and propel ourselves toward success.

Whether it’s optimizing workflows, refining strategies, or fostering a healthier company culture, the lessons from my journey apply to every aspect of business. It’s about embracing change, prioritizing well-being, and staying focused on the long-term vision.

So, what’s holding you back from your business goals? Maybe it’s time to make a small change, one that’s maintainable and uncomplicated.

Here’s to embracing change, chasing dreams, and driving business growth.

I’d love to hear your thoughts on this journey!
