Topic 1: Welcome; What three things do you do regularly for your mind, your body, your spirit?

  • The mind and body is intertwined.
  • Workout first thing in the morning. “I tend to be restless and don't have the clarity of thought that I really need in order to do what I do.”
  • Have a healthy breakfast.
  • Have close connections with people outside of work, meet new people, make new connections.
  • Put discipline around fitness.
  •  “I was sick and tired of being sick and tired.”
  • Things happen gradually. It's gradual to get to where we got to, and it's gradual to get to where we want to be, but by the same token, it's got to be dramatic enough to make a difference/change.
  • Be the person you were raised to be. A lot of people talk about a spiritual moment or a moment of clarity, or you just wake up one day and realize you need to do something different, and do something different quick. ·       Push yourself out of your comfort zone.
  • Don’t let your business define who we are.
  • Entrepreneurial people who were very focused on building a business need to make sure they are hiring good people and letting go of some of the decisions. Because inadvertently, you can become held hostage by your own business.
  • Empowering others can be a very uncomfortable sensation, but can be immensely freeing and gratifying.

Topic 2How does fitness, eating healthy, making connections that feel comfortable to you outside of work, how does this help you manage your stress? How do you find time to do these things?

  • The concept of choice and awareness.
  • Focus on awareness and taking a good, hard look at some of the false negative beliefs that drive undesirable behavior.
  • Many people are driven by fears or insecurities and as a result, they're always pushing themselves into areas that are unhealthy.
  • Structure your day in a way that plays to your strengths.
  • Know yourself. “I know I am a morning person.”
  • It's okay for to live your life the way you want to live it, not according to how you were programmed
  • Structure your day in a way that plays well for you.
  • Life is short.
