Changing our habits is difficult and at times a daunting task. In some instances the idea may even seem nearly impossible. Unhealthy habits negatively affect you personally and professionally, disrupting relationships, your reputation, and cause unwanted stress. Sometimes our unhealthy habits cross our threshold, transcending from our personal life into our professional life.
My question for you is if you have any unhealthy habits you are willing to acknowledge? Are you doing anything to alleviate those habits? Do you have a plan of action set in place to help alleviate the situation?
Leaders provide direction, successful leaders maintain progress, visionaries, authoritarian, and are influential. Yeas those are the traits that most good and successful leaders have. So ask yourself, what do non-leaders do? Not nothing, because if you are doing nothing, you are actually still doing something, it’s nothing. A non-leader is somebody that may not have influence on the people around them in the workplace, because you can still #GSD and not lead those around you.
Being a leader means having the capacity to lead, inspire, and instill commitment in those around them. Take a minute to think about all the times you are a leader throughout your day. Who do you inspire? How do you lead? Is it by your ability to connect with the person? Is it your commitment to first focus on change in yourself before you are able to establish change in others?
How is your self-care as an entrepreneur?
Self-care can be particularly tricky for some entrepreneurs, since most entrepreneurs tend to juggle a variety of hats. The most important hat an entrepreneur wears is the self-care hat, and that one tends to be ignored on a regular basis. Self-care is defined in the dictionary as taking care of one self without medical assistance. I look at self-care as taking care of you beyond the regular exercise and healthy eating.
