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

Let’s Just Be Grateful

Remember the feeling of wanting something you now have? When you start to feel imprisoned by material possessions like the newest and greatest gadget or you start to feel envious of some one else’s new car or house, stop to look around. Be grateful for how far you’ve come and remember when you weren’t very far at all. #family #grateful

Strive To Be Humble

Try to find more humility this week. I constantly find myself using first person pronouns way too often during my daily conversations. Join me in making a more conscious effort to ask genuine questions about others and those you meet, rather than telling others about yourself. Listen more intently. Everyone deserves a chance to be heard. Try and learn something from everyone you interact with.

Never Settle For Just Getting By

Be an over achiever. I’ve never understood the mindset of those who are content with doing the bare minimum to get by. You only get one shot at making your mark on this world. Take every opportunity that comes your way and give it everything you have. There is absolutely no point or reasoning behind “just getting by.” Don’t waste your time here on Earth, and certainly don’t waste anyone else’s time by dragging your feet. Be confident. Be motivated. Strive to over achieve.

Soylent Challenge: The Final Days

Here we are, people! I did it. It’s done. I made it through this weird diet journey, and I have to say, I have never felt better. Back on day 3, I said the ultimate goal for me was to allow my body to “reset.” To flush my body of processed foods and MSG. I didn’t fully understand at the time how that goal would end up playing out. I’m here to say that it’s played out beautifully. Read More
