I don’t naturally, or because of upbringing, naturally, share what I am doing, thinking, or challenges. Many have generously shared encouragement and successes. More importantly, their trials and tribulations. I have decided to share more and pay it forward. It is challenging to balance my family, health, and business daily. I have often felt my genes kept me overweight. I have struggled with the basics of what and how much to eat. I have been through an economic downturn as a business owner. I saw my father diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. At the time, I couldn’t escape feeling that a type 2 diabetes diagnosis didn’t have to mean medication forever. I felt healthy even though I couldn’t lose much weight. I didn’t know how to help my father.
Through coaching, I have learned how to maintain my blood pressure. No type 2 diabetes. All without medication. It is challenging and so much easier than it was a decade ago.
Making my business healthy and resilient is more challenging. My health gives me a chance to help others. And make my business healthy and more resilient. Even more important during our current economic challenges. You may find it easier to run a business than improve your health. And I’m sure you know the challenges don’t stop.
My nephew just told me he got the call and has type 2 diabetes. This time I have more experience and know how to help. I’m more than ready for the challenge. What do you find more challenging, your health or your business?
