It seems like once a year I get excited about trying new supplements in hopes that I will become more ripped and more effective (Am I the only one?).
This year, the excitement came because I recently started a new Beachbody program called, “The Work”. I love it. I’ve been getting great results and so I thought I’d look up what supplements other athletes take in order to get even better results. One of the supplements that I saw and purchased was MCT oil. It is supposed to boost energy and give you several other health benefits.
I was so excited to take it! I envisioned taking it with my coffee and being twice as productive and energized as I usually am throughout the day.
It made my mind go crazy and I ended up having anxiety attacks for two hours straight. I thought I was going to die several times and I told my wife to call 911. Unfortunately, my wife has been through this with me before and she knew that I’d be fine.
She took care of me for two hours and then said in so many words, “When are you going to learn that you don’t need anything else to do what you’re doing. You look great. Your energy level is fine. You are productive.”
The lesson? I believe that we as leaders get too enamored with things that we believe help us go to the next level, when in reality, it’s very likely we have everything we need right now to be successful.
You don’t need to read another book, go to another conference, have a meeting with that leader, need the best equipment, or anything else you think would help you. Now, there is one exception, and that is becoming a member of L3 Leadership. That is the only thing guaranteed to make you better as a leader (sign-up now and get two months free at https://l3leadership.mykajabi.com/l3-membership-special-offer-1).I believe that we as leaders get too enamored with things that we believe help us go to the next level, when in reality, it’s very likely we have everything we need right now to be successful.

As a leadership development company, we are obviously all about growing and getting better every day but don’t buy into the lie that you need something external to go to the next level. You have everything you need within you.
You are doing better than you think you are. Just do your best every day with what you have and that will always be enough.
