To lead yourself well, you need to need to know yourself well.

While mentors, teachers, and coaches can give you some directions in VERY specific areas of your life to develop skills, navigate roadblocks and create certain results –  

YOU are responsible for taking into consideration how that advice fits into the wholeness of your life. 

And the honest to God truth is… 

A lot of advice you get may not make any sense to the rest of your life.

It doesn’t matter how well it worked for your sister, your co-worker, or your best friend. 

Most women understand the importance of raising kids who think for themselves but we are living at a time when adults do not want to think for themselves, especially when it comes to improving health. 

They just want to be told what to do by someone who knows their body and their life better than they do but I am here to tell you … 

THAT PERSON DOES NOT EXIST. 

The problem with outsourcing this task to someone else is that NO ONE is living your life.  

NO ONE knows you or your life the way YOU do. 

This is why one of the primary tenents of my work is that… improving health is a practice in self-leadership. 

Self Leadership is having a developed sense of who you are, what you can do, and where you want to go combined with the ability to manage your thoughts, emotions, and behavior on the way to getting there.

To lead yourself well, you need to need to know yourself well. 

And, therein lies the problem for an awful lot of women. 

Knowing yourself well requires time, energy, curiosity, and a desire to explore what makes you tick.

One of the best pieces of advice I have for you to improve your health story is to develop your self-leadership skills so you can stop looking outside yourself for all of the answers.  Most of the answers you are looking for are ones you have been carrying around all along;)

To lead yourself well, you need to need to know yourself well.
