I Love working with entrepreneurs to help them achieve peak performance with their bodies so they can transfer that energy into their business. When I do, I often refer to partnering with their body or treating their body like a business…
You see, integrity with your body can be very similar to integrity in business.
Have you ever worked for a CEO, boss or manager that had no integrity? Have you ever had your boss ask you to do things that you didn’t agree with but you had to do it anyway? Were you given the proper tools and guidance to complete the task as expected? Have you ever had a job where you felt overworked and underpaid? Did you respect your boss?
On the other hand, have you ever worked for a boss with integrity, who treated you with respect? You probably worked much harder and were much happier with your job and respected them in return… A CEO with integrity usually has very loyal, happy employees and a thriving business.
Well, you are the CEO, boss and manager to the cells in your body. Every cell in your body has intelligence and is working hard to please you. Do you treat your cells (body) with respect? What are you asking them to do for you? What are you paying (feeding) them? Are you giving them the proper tools and guidance to complete your tasks as needed? Are you praising them? Do they respect you?
Your body wants to perform for you. It wants the very best for you. It gets up early, works hard for very little recognition and does it again and again every day!
Treat your body like a CEO with integrity would treat their employees. Respect it, delegate tasks with integrity, pay it well and it will give you years of loving service.
