Hopefully you’ve had a successful and enjoyable day as you celebrated Boss’s Day! Or I hope it at least crossed your mind that you ARE the boss of several things in your life, even if you are employed by someone and have a “boss” at work.
Let’s take wellness as an example. Who’s responsible for your wellness? YOU are!
As we think about 360-degree wellness — all of the aspects that affect your health & well being — YOU are the boss, right? The CEO.
You’re the one who gets to choose what you put into your body, whether or not you exercise and what type of exercise you do, and how you navigate stressful situations in life.
You are the one who decides what type of personal and professional development you engage in.
You’re the one who chooses how you relate to other people and how that affects your relationships. You also get to decide what steps to take with your finances to help keep that area of your life healthy. You’re the one who decides how you exercise your faith on a daily basis.
It’s true that other important people in your life may have an impact on all of those things.
Bottom line, though: Recognize that YOU have the most impact on YOU, in many ways.
One of the most important things you can do in order to make improvements in ANY area of life is to recognize that YOU are responsible for your thoughts, beliefs, and actions. Never underestimate that.
You might also be the boss in a work setting, or you might be your own boss in business. That’s cool, too. I love being my own boss (i.e. having my own business) and helping others do the same.
For today, though, let’s celebrate the role every one of us has as the CEO… the boss… the top dog… in many aspects of our lives, and especially as it relates to our overall wellness.
Happy Boss’s Day to ALL of you!
