5 Powerful Benefits of Intentional Rest

So many people, leaders especially, know one speed: full throttle.

Those who are especially driven tend to work seven days a week, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. It’s difficult for some to put their work down and leave it at the office.

One can argue that there are thousands of examples of individuals who have experienced high levels of success due to this drive, but I would ask – at what cost?

Welcome to our video blog and Monday Mastery Edition of our Strategic Leader Podcast with Brian Holmes! Each Monday, we provide a video & podcast audio segment designed to encourage, motivate, challenge, and develop you as a leader and influencer.

Over the years, I’ve learned everyone has a passion and message within them, but most struggle with how to share it effectively.

deeply moves breaks heart

There are certain things we are uniquely wired to care about, be moved by, or even be consumed with.

It’s in our DNA to take interest in certain things. We were born with internal guidance that pulls us toward those interests by default.

Today, we’re going to really explore those things you are naturally drawn to and deeply care about, and discuss how these things are an indication of who you are, and why you are here.

How Effective Communication Can Change The World

Effective communication is vital to your success! Think about your message in terms of growing your impact, and communicating your passions.

#310: You Were Born For This

you were born for this

Consider the possibility you are carrying an idea, a solution, or a life-changing message someone else is waiting to hear.

While I won’t get into the science of how the mind works, I will tell you we tend to dial our truth and possibilities DOWN to the level of our internal belief structures.

Today, I want to start at the beginning.

I want to start with you! What is YOUR unique value in the world?

Is it really possible to channel your passions, interests, experience, and wisdom into meaningful work?

This episode will explore this very question in great detail.

Your Meaning, Your Message, Your Maximum Impact

Are you ready to leave your mark in the world, and change the lives of those around you?

message meaning maximum impact

It’s a question I propose to my coaching clients often: Who are you, and why are you here?

We all have a purpose, and some of us even have multiple purposes we’re called to fulfill in life. But do you know yours?

Do you know why you do the things you do, why you’ve had the experiences you’ve had, and what you’re supposed to do with them now?

Sometimes our experiences – good, bad, or anywhere in between – are what equip us for the maximum impact we were meant to make. How we handle situations helps us shape our message to share with and encourage others by. What we do with it all helps fulfill the meaning in our lives.

But only if we do something.
