This is a fun, but serious look at how we sabotage ourselves.  The lack of time to support yourself creates an environment where you can't care for the people you care about.  Bryan Falchuk has an amazing story; he went from being obese and depressed to losing over 100 pounds and running marathons. He's faced the trauma of nearly losing his wife to illness while their young son watched. He's transformed his life and developed an approach to help others do the same that he teaches in his best-selling book "Do a Day: How To Live A Better Life Every Day".  Bryan says, "Don't forget while you are changing‚ to give yourself some time."

 

You'll discover:

 

  • You can serve others better when you serve yourself first
  • The value in getting rid of those old messages that you are less than
  • The importance of clarity of purpose, intention and motivation
  • How to light the fire from within
  • Breaking the cycle of mindless doing has great rewards

 

Remember:  Selflessness without self-care leads to selfishness
