Getting And Staying Healthy As A Leader

Becoming A Healthy Leader

With everything on a leader’s plate, staying healthy as a leader sometimes falls by the wayside. Thoughts of “How do I fit exercise into my daily routine” to “I can’t do a lot of exercises because I’m not in shape” fill your mind. You’re lost on where to start and where to go when you’re looking to become healthy.

The physical strength needed to get started exercising can seem overwhelming. The time it takes to maintain your physical health. And the repetition… These can all get to you as you begin your healthy leader journey.

Don’t Get Stuck In The Start

Starting is the hardest thing to do. Or so people say.

But is it really the truth? Is starting all that hard?

I don’t think starting is really hard. It’s actually pretty easy. Especially now when you’re able to start with so little.

Starting requires virtually nothing now. You can start a business with just a computer and internet access. You can start a club through the use of websites like You can even get people to help you to start by using Kickstarter.

Stuck In The Start

You see, starting has never been easier.

With that, we’re able to get stuck in the start.

We prepare. We get the foundation set. We even raise money.

And yet we’re stuck. We don’t know where to go after starting.

This has happened with my friend, Brandon, and I.

Start Where You’re At

Starting out can be the most difficult part of your journey. I know it was for me.

There was a lot of procrastination that I needed to conquer. A lot of mental objections needed to be met before I could start.

But I finally learned to start where I was at. And you can start where you’re at as well.

While I’d always enjoyed learning about leadership and being in a leadership position, it was tough to take action and call myself a leader. I rarely felt I had the know-how to call myself that.

Then things started to change. My journey began where I was at.

The journey really started in a strange place to me. In a Family Christian Bookstore.

I don’t know why it seems so strange but it does. I guess that’s how some things pan out.
