Mark's personal journey
Reflections are Key
I became morbidly obese in the early ’90s due to my inability to live authentically. I wasn’t comfortable being myself and struggled to find my truth. Food became my comfort, from secret meals and snacks to a lack of self-love and self-worth. I was eating into an inactive lifestyle filled with anxiety, type two diabetes, and various other medical and personal issues. I was also blaming everyone else for the bullshit I was creating!
I also realized I was demonstrating shitty leadership behaviours. I wouldn’t, however, make this connection for several more years. At work, I was choosing to be impacted by my struggles and sometimes took my anger, sadness, frustrations and hostilities out on my staff. I wouldn’t be blatantly rude to them, but I wasn’t being overly supportive either. The aggressive, yelling boss isn’t the only way to demonstrate shitty leadership behaviours. Sometimes the demonstrated behaviours and actions can be quite subtle.
Ask yourself, “Are you ready on the inside to make lasting changes on the outside?”. Your solutions are already inside you; all you have to do is take that first step towards changing things for the better, including how you think, feel and behave.
The only thing stopping you is YOU!
