“Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others.”

Jack Welch

When I wake up at 5am every morning, it’s not about me.

When I do my daily push-up and squat ritual, it’s not about me

When I write daily to improve myself, it’s not about me

When I push the limits in the gym, it’s not about me,

When I read 15 books in 8 weeks, it wasn’t about me,

When I develop healthy habits and stick to them, it’s not about me.

All these things are for the little kid who wanted to look up to someone.

Six years old and in awe of athletes that did amazing things.

It’s for the Mom who feels like she has no time and is looking for a little inspiration.

It’s for the athlete who is seeking out any ounce of improvement.

It’s for the coach who is doing the same.

It’s for you.

And the amazing thing is that when I frame these tasks, habits, and rituals around the idea that it’s not about me but about YOU, I gain a surge of energy and have more output. 

Thank you for inspiring me.
