Reposted from @bonaakubue - They set targets for themselves and consistently fail to meet such targets.
Yet, they get so bitter and disappointed when others fail in theirs.
The first step to take in becoming a leader is from your very self. Every day is an opportunity to practice leadership, especially on yourself.
If you succeed in this area, it would be pretty easy to carry it forward onto others.

Spending my Friday night getting a good workout in while on my hitch. 💪🏽⏳
For a month now I’ve completely changed my routine around. -
From going to bed earlier and waking up earlier, running more, balancing my diet better, actually putting what im learning from the books I’m reading into action. And just overall being a better person.
I’m feeling fucking great. 😎🤙🏽

How guilty are you?⠀
👉🏻When a customer sends you a nasty message telling you they are unsatisfied....when a IG follower posts a demeaning comment on one of your posts.....when a peer says you don't have the qualifications to do what you are doing......when anyone questions your validity and authenticity.......What do you do?⠀
😡Most of the time we are overcome with the intense emotions of anger, defensiveness, anxiety, stress, etc, and tend to immediately react in some way - either by lashing out, being submissive, or just plain crying and being emotional.⠀
👉🏻But, honey don't! This is where your badass confidence and self-worth kick into drive. Try to push your emotions to the side for the moment and answer their comments and questions rationally, as if it were a question.⠀⠀
👉🏻Here's some tips on how to deal with these negative situations:⠀ - Stop and think. What is causing them to ask or say such a thing?⠀ - Push your emotions to the back of your head and focus on cold hard facts.⠀ - Respond with factual information about who you are and what you do.⠀ - Clarify where they have gone wrong or misunderstood⠀ - Turn it into a conversation instead of angry hashout⠀ - Stand up for yourself without getting over emotional! ⠀ - Eventually, learn to not let these comments dominate so much of your time and energy.⠀
💎Protecting your time and energy, as well as, standing up for yourself and protecting your reputation and business is crucial to your success and ultimate well being. To do this you must learn to respond instead of react in business dealings!!! I know it's hard, trust me, it's still a struggle for me as well, but we need to keep these points in mind!⠀

@diabetes_order - Asparagus-Stuffed Chicken🌱🍗 Eat or Pass?😍 340 Calories per portion. Recipe below!💫
3 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts (about 1 1/2 pounds )
To taste Kosher Salt
To taste Ground Black Pepper
1 Tablespoon Lemon Zest (Zest of 1 Lemon)
9-12 stalks Fresh Asparagus (depends on how large the stalks of asparagus are)
3/4 Cup Shredded Provolone Cheese (Can substitute with sliced provolone ( 3-6 slices depending on thickness) )
1 1/2 Teaspoons Paprika (Can substitute with smoked paprika)
1 Tablespoon Chopped Fresh Rosemary (Can substitute with 1 teaspoon of dried rosemary)
1 Tablespoon Chopped Fresh Thyme (Can substitute with 1 teaspoon of dried thyme)
2 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter
3 Tablespoons Lemon Juice (Optional) (juice of 1 lemon)
Preheat oven to 400F/200C
Butterfly the chicken breast in half, length-wise, leaving it intact on one side to create a pocket for stuffing. Season the inside of the chicken breast with salt, pepper, and lemon zest. Add 3-4 stalks of asparagus and the provolone cheese in the center of each chicken breast and fold over, to enclose the filling.
Season the outside of the chicken breast with salt, pepper, paprika, and herbs. Rub the seasoning into the chicken breast and set aside.
Heat a large, oven safe pan over medium heat and add the butter. Once hot, sear the chicken until golden brown, about 3 to 5 minutes on each side. Cover the pan with foil, place in the oven, and bake until the chicken is cooked through, about 15-20 minutes.
Remove from the oven and allow rest for about a few minutes before serving.
If desired, add lemon juice to the chicken juices in the pan and serve as a sauce.

Don’t make excuses for why you can’t get it done. Focus on all the reasons why you MUST make it happen.
Life is always going to be there. If you make health and fitness a priority I promise you will find the time.
Let me ask you this… How much time have you spent on social media today? How much time today have you spent thinking about working out? How much time have you spent thinking that you should really start eating better?
I’m sure it was enough time to dedicate 20-30 minutes to working out! Now just think where you would be if you stopped THINKING about doing it and ACTUALLY doing it.
