As a leader and an entrepreneur, one of the most important lessons I’ve learned:

Just Breathe. Everything else will take care of itself.

It’s true. We get ahead of ourselves instead of allowing life and its gifts to occur and grow within our lives. It is the same with our businesses and organizations. When we breathe (and smile), we remember that we have a choice in the decisions we make, how we experience life and all that it has to offer.

    This is so true, and I needed to hear it. I have such a tendency to “think ahead” in life, especially as it is part of what I do for work. Today I think I will just breathe, and smile, and see what happens.

    Thanks for the comments. Leaders cannot afford to be reactionary. It just doesn’t work and that is how mistakes happen. When people take the time to breathe, they are able to assess situations more clearly. Name a situation when you took a step back and took a breathe. What was the result of that situation?
