Fill Up Your Cup...

Fill up your cup. 

No, I'm talking your beer or wine cup...

I'm talking YOUR cup. 

I think as humans most of us are motivated by serving others. 

Whether that be in our career, as a parent, or to a loved one, deep down, we are highly motivated and highly fulfilled by serving others. 

Sure, we have some lofty goals of more money and better and bigger things, but ultimately our largest drive comes from being there for others. 

It could be more memories with your family...

It could be doing volunteer or community work...

Or just the fulfillment of watching little Johnny run the bases. 

If you really think about most of your superficial goals (fat loss, money, etc) it's usually to be a better servant to others. 

So how do you do that?

Fill up your cup.

You can't pour from an empty cup. 

Take care of yourself first. 

I know, it sounds so cliche and you've heard it before, but I see it as my duty to keep it top of mind. 

You can't take care of others until you take care of yourself. 

Do you want to be energetic for your kids when you play with them in the backyard?

You need to take care of yourself first. 

Do you want to be around to see your granddaughter get married?

You need to take care of yourself first. 

Do you want to do philanthropic work, work that lasts well beyond yourself?

You need to take care of yourself first.  

In order to be the best for others, you first need to be your best self. 

This means exercising regularly, eating clean, and managing your stress and sleep. 

It's not rocket science, but it's the truth. 

Remember...

You can't pour from an empty cup. 

1% Better.

Dedicated to Your Success,
