Put Your Own Oxygen Mask on First

As a former road warrior, I use a lot of airplane references but not one rings truer to me than the safety instruction ....Put your oxygen mask on first...How many times do we just not do this. We continue to deplete our reserves until we become sick, depressed and lethargic. For your #Break-Thru Strategy, 2016 personal goals need to be an important element. Whether it is health, family connections, personal connections, vacations, etc. You need to include them and give them priority, not an if "I get around to it".

My #Break-Thru strategy involved getting myself back to health. I had let myself go to where I could hardly make it through the day. I was in a vicious cycle that I had to correct. I knew if I were going to be a success at my business I needed to take care of me first...putting on my oxygen mask. So I started to get healthy again....I became more conscious of what I was eating, eating healthier foods....I started walking which has not only helped me but my Beagle is in 7th heaven, and she has lost weight as well. Now we are moving to a walk-run and eventually to a run. I have 2 Marathons in my future, and I intend to get there.

So how does this affect my business? One I have the stamina to get it done...to stay with it. I focus better. When I am exercising, I get some of my best #Break-Thru ideas. But most importantly my confidence has soared through the roof. I feel that I can take on the world, and I am.

So for your #Break-Thru 2016 make certain you include your personal goals. You need your oxygen mask before you can help others with theirs.
