Happy Friday from Your Girl Friday, reporting to you from my new post as an Academy Practice Building Consultant! There’s a lot of excitement to that news in itself, but we won’t address that here today (if you want the scoop, shoot me an email and I’ll tell you all about my new adventure at the Academy!).
Today, I have one very important question for you: What’s for breakfast?
There have been a lot of changes here at the Academy in the last few weeks in a really positive way. We’ve taken the time to dig really deep into our company culture and how important it is to have everyone on the team doing jobs that they LOVE to come to work and get to do every day. We’ve restructured how we run events, how we coach our Members, and even how we give feedback to each other internally. Suffice to say that we are absolutely buzzing with excitement and renewed zeal for what each of us does here at the Academy.
So, what does that have to do with your breakfast? Ok, let’s talk about that.
What if — and don’t be afraid to go on this little journey with me for a minute — what if by “breakfast” I meant, “what did you feed your BRAIN and your SOUL today?” Suddenly “coffee, eggs, bacon…. And I snuck a pancake” isn’t your automatic answer, right? It’s no secret that if you want your physical body to be healthy, performing all the tasks you need it to perform day to day, you have to feed it the highest quality nutrients. Put good in to get good out, as they say.
But what about the rest of you? What do you feed your brain first thing in the morning? Tabloid “news”? Whatever friends, relatives, and long lost schoolmates are posting on their social media feed? Or maybe you go straight for the hard stuff and jump right into work emails from the moment your eyes flutter open.
To “get good out,” and to nurture your brain, you must consistently “feed” it the food nutrient equivalent of news, books, programs, and even interaction with other people.
Our CEO, Sanford Fisch, forwarded one of Darren Hardy’s DarrenDaily excerpts to me, and he asks the same question. Read through his notes below (or here: http://www.darrendaily.com/whats-for-breakfast/) and maybe look past the cereal to the eggs in the fridge this morning 😉
Happy hump day!
Are you feeling hungry this morning?
Before you go to make your breakfast, let me remind you of the importance of taking GREAT care of your health…
We know if you want your body to run at peak performance, you’ve got to be vigilant about consuming the highest-quality nutrients and avoiding tempting junk food.
If you want your brain to perform at its peak, you’ve got to be even more vigilant about what you feed it.
Are you feeding it genetically modified, processed, dehydrated, high sugar and fat infused news summaries or IQ-insulting and mind-numbing sitcoms?
Controlling the input has a direct and measurable impact on your “business”, and its success.
Only feed your mind fresh, nutrient rich, mineral dense, bioactive superfoods.
Hey, like what you are reading now on DarrenDaily!
