Don’t Neglect The Balance

I often post professional and motivational advice for those leaders who sometimes need a boost in morale or a bump in their own self-esteem. I speak on the well-being of your job performance and the preservation of the lives of people you lead. But unfortunately, more often than not, we get submerged in a world of work or world of how we can perform better in our jobs. I myself have fallen victim to projecting more focus on certain aspects of life and neglecting others.

It’s important to know that above all else, your self-care and overall well-being must first start with your attentiveness toward yourself, your family and your home. There is a reason that counselors and psychologists say that a good support system is critical to the mental and physical health of a person. Because without that, you’ll have a hard time finding the energy or alertness to do anything else. Because without that, your loved ones don’t get the attention and energy they deserve from you.

You’ve invested so much energy and time into your professional well-being, you can’t neglect the investment you need to make in your personal life. It’s no easy task trying to find the correct balance between the two, but knowing there needs to be a balance is half the battle. #wellness

Be the leader you had

Think of who you are and where you come from. Now, think about how you got here. Who helped you along the way?

All of us have someone. I certainly do. That person, or persons, who marked a defining part of our life. They made a mark or impression on you that forever changed who you were as a person and your outlook on life.

Be that person…

Those you lead are looking for their someone, knowingly or unknowingly, to mark their journey. Be available. Be honest. Be approachable. BE that influencer.

You want to be a great leader? Be the great leader you had.
