Let’s forget about thin/slim/slender/skinny and focus on ‘strong’ and what that means [to me]. I haven’t weighed myself in years, I don’t track calories or kilojoules & even though I know the supreme benefits of fasting, I’m yet to meet a part of the day with a totally empty stomach. But hey I do love to feel healthy and strong!
It’s not a physical ‘first’ thing to me though, it’s a mental thing.
The bigger my business has gotten, the greater the demands on my mental space, the more I know I have to focus on my physical health. In the past when I’ve reached successful ranks I’ve blown up/numbed instead of taking the up-level I needed to. These experiences were needed because they taught me what not to do. In a big way!
We don't just get 'birthed' as expert 'Million Dollar Business' CEO's. I'm taking my own baby steps as I learn to be a container for a massive doTERRA team and what that brings to my life.
I have thousands of customers and hundreds of leaders within my tree, and together WE have a message to deliver to the world that is incredibly important. It's an honour and I see it as a great responsibility to do that in the best capacity I can. Impossible to do if my health is not on point.
Today, I work with thousands of women who want 'more', and many are not ‘yet’ advocates for wellness.
You don't have to become #Fitspo, workout every day, or deadlift your own body weight, I'm not talking about how much you weigh or whether you can do a handstand inversion in yoga, but if you want to create a successful business in the wellbeing industry, physical wellbeing might well be a goal to have hey? Something to consider.
Physical exercise makes you feel good. Full-stop. It helps condition commitment and strength in the physical body and allows our 'heads' to be clearer. I believe we are better leaders when we focus on our wellbeing, and physical health is a key component in that.
All of the fave leaders/managers/CEO’s I’ve worked with in the corporate world were physically fit.
You wouldn't walk into any of the gyms I've been to and find a woman who would tell you they felt worse for being active. [cont in comments]
