I wanted to talk to you about the whole concept of Fit, Fab and Fulfilled. This phrase truly is a representation of my journey to get fit, feel and find my fabulous, and live a fulfilled life.
Sixteen years ago, while I was still living and working in Toronto, I found myself tired, exhausted, extremely stressed. I was losing lean muscle and experiencing a lack of mental clarity. The reality was I felt horrible and each was a struggle. I was caught in a vicious cycle which consisted of working long hours and serving everyone else; my family, my children, my employer, and the team that I was managing. I had my head down and I was running, running, running. One day I looked up… and I realized I wasn’t feeling well. Unfortunately I kept running while the feeling got progressively worse.
When I was an employee, I was often told I was an excellent leader. I had successfully led a number of teams, and moved them from producing at a normal level to becoming high functioning, cohesive teams. I had evidence that led me to believe I was an effective leader.
When I got into network marketing, I soon learned that my so called excellent leadership skills weren’t as effective. I was suddenly leading a volunteer army and to be successful, my definition of leadership needed to shift.
Did you know you only have 3 seconds to make a first impression? In other words, when you walk into a room and people take a look at you, in a split second they make a decision of who you are, how successful you are, and possibly whether they like you or not and whether or not they are going to approach you.
