Lead yourself first

I’m excited to be sharing this video  as it helps me approach leadership from a slightly different, but, helpful angle.

In this post, Kim Lyons takes us through her journey as a personal trainer, including a stint on the Biggest Looser USA. This story is full of great insight into the importance of #leading yourself first.

This video also reminds me of my own leadership journey, it didn’t start with leading others, it started with leading myself.

The lessons I took from the video are relevant to many areas of your life not just health. The take homes that stuck out for me are:

• Do stuff that energizes you
• Take care of yourself
• Learn to keep yourself motivated when it gets tough
• Find your voice and speak up
• Take action towards your goals, however small.

Let me know what you think in the comments box below.

Enjoy!
