Being a great leader requires many traits, including being organized, having great communication skills, and tons of energy.
There is a link between wellness and leadership!
Self-leadership is all about leading yourself to become the master of your life.
You need self-leadership in these times of uncertainty because great leadership requires self-development, self-awareness and lots of energy.
Let’s jump in with my six skills to becoming the best version of yourself!
Skill #1 — Self-discipline
Discipline in fitness and life isn’t tied to what you feel like doing.
I went for a workout yesterday even though I didn’t feel like it.
I did it because I made a commitment.
Keeping your word to yourself to do the things you said you would do, even when you don’t feel like it matters in all areas of your life, not just business!
You need to pay attention to your nutrition in order to achieve peak performance.
Skill #2 — Good habits
This skill is backed by science and practiced by millionaires and billionaires like Oprah and Jack Dorsey.
Fit leadership starts with locking in your morning with good habits. This actually starts the night before by getting to bed early enough and not hitting the wine too hard!
Goal stacking in the morning with positive habits helps build momentum for a productive day.
Four of my millionaire morning suggestions are drinking water and exercising to stay energized.
Setting time to clear your head with meditation. Practice 7-7-7 breathing — inhale for seven, hold for 7, and exhale for 7.
Before you jump into your phone or workday, do this to start your day off on the right high-energy note and to boost your mood.
Planing your morning and your meals sets you up to be successful for the rest of the day especially with the fast pace that’s required of you as a leader!
Good habit stacking is essential for leading a healthy lifestyle and self-leadership to stay aligned with your goals.
Skill #3 — Self-awareness
True power Lies In Knowing Yourself
This helps you lead in these uncertain times.
Knowing your values, beliefs, and having good habits influence your decision-making abilities!
Skill #4 — Self-confidence
As a leader, having a strong belief in your abilities and strengths is important. And by being fit, it increases your confidence level.
Skill #5 — Have SMART Goals
Goals that are specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and time-bound.
Having smart goals gives you a vision and targets that you can put on a timeline.
Tracking your performance and achievement is important to give you a sense of fulfillment and motivate you to work even harder at your goals.
Setting smart goals can help you monitor your fitness progress, which is essential when you are trying to develop new healthy habits or simply trying to achieve any goal.
Skill #6 — Be prepared for self-sabotage
Self-sabotaging plays a role in resisting growth and failed resolutions.
I know I’ve been there but I keep going!
You must also be prepared for the challenges that come up.
Having a solid plan and following the plan helps you cope with resistance to stay on track to reach your goals because New Year’s resolutions don’t last, but sticking to a plan does!
Self-mastery, includes not being too hard on yourself when you slip up, rewarding yourself for your accomplishments, and accepting that failure is part of the plan—forgive yourself and keep going when you fail so that you feel motivated to do better.
I’ll leave you with this great MLK quote
“If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.”
Being an effective leader involves getting yourself in peak performance.
Remember: Health is Wealth!
With your fast-paced life as a leader, fitness and nutrition can be hard to maintain. Imagine having more energy at work – and on the weekends.
