I would always rather be happy than dignified.Too many people spend money they earned..to buy things they don't want..to impress people that they don't like.A proud man is always looking down on things and people and, of course, as long as you are looking down, you cannot see something that is above you.
There are few greater feelings in our careers than seeing our influence play out in the success of others. In fact, a staple of fire service leadership, supervision, management, brotherhood, or whatever else we want to call it is serving our people. However, one of the fastest ways to burn ourselves out is being so focused on those around us that we lose ourselves in the process. At some point we must advocate for ourselves as much as we do for others. Setting aside time for our own health, development, satisfaction, and coping must be equal to the time we set aside for our brothers and sisters if we are to be successful.
Don’t forget to do something for yourself now and then. Our aspirations are not of less importance, even if they fall lower on the agenda most days. When we allow ourselves to become lost in the needs of everyone else, our own needs become the most neglected. This may work over the short term, but will erode our motivation in the long run. Remember, no matter what our role may be, if we are not succeeding, those we influence will not succeed either. Teamwork is just as much about balance as it is sacrifice. None of us can carry the weight of the team on our own...

another influence social media has on teenagers' body images are fitness models/ influencers who promote a variety of products on Instagram. the majority of the time, these products are a scam and are harmful to your body, however, these influencers present it as a good which makes you look/feel more ‘attractive’/‘beautiful’. teenagers then see this, believing that if they purchase these harmful, overpriced products, they can look just like the girl in the picture. however, these influencers are using photo lights n facetune too look a specific way, not by taking hair vitamins and using waist trainers. influencers only promote these fraudster companies for money, not taking into fact that they negatively influence teenagers' body images, they’re convincing us that we need to ‘improve’ our appearance.
I’ve loved hosting the Academy’s podcast (new weekly episodes this fall, btw)...but it was great to be a guest @johngeades “Follow My Lead” Podcast.
We talked about why understanding ourselves is so important to lead well, the two things I discovered that absolutely allow me to do what I was designed to do, and the most important characteristic any leader can have.
You got to run after your destiny, you got to live with a why. Give yourself time to find it but don't stop until you've found your why. Once you've found it it's time to work for it. Make a plan, get clarity of what you want in life. Then start, start running and don't stop until you get there. Success is never an accident but always intentional.

Has Johnny Depp Gone Vegan? Yep.
@johnnydeppofficial has eliminated meat and dairy from his diet for his new girlfriend Amber Heard.
He’s also taken up a vegan diet after she told him about the benefits and now he’s raving about losing his paunch.
Have you ever heard someone say, “I don’t know...there’s just something about you!” The people that you’re called to don’t need your résumé to see value in you.
I challenge you to start looking at your interactions and relationships from a different lens today. And most of all, don’t force any connections. #PurposePotentialPodcast#DebutingSummer2019#AajaCorinneTheBrand

🐯Liger Pro Tip: Set aside a bit of time to be alone in the morning.
Take this time to reflect the day, review your to-do list, listen to your favorite podcast...whatever gives you peace, do that. 📖
Gathering your thoughts in the morning can be such a game changer. Start your day off right, so you’re ready to attack it head on!

OPEN THAT DOOR! 🌱Many of us stand in front of a door of POSSIBILITIES, fearing what's on the other side.
Fearing the unknown.
Fearing the lack of control.
Fearing the responsibility.
Fearing the exposure.
Fearing the failure.
And even fearing the success. 🌱Stop underestimating your potential. 🌱You'll never know what you're truly capable of doing, if you don't open the door. ⛔What is stopping you?
It’s just Monday and I want to escape the whole next week likeee...
SO BASICALLY THIS PICTURE IS A BIG MOODD!

Dlaczego zachowujesz się jak dziecko!?
Bo boję się dorosnąć! Dorastając często przestajemy marzyć! Marzenia stają się mniej wygórowane. Dlaczego mała dziewczynka nie boi się marzyć o byciu księżniczką , a mały chłopiec o byciu piratem? Wierzą w swoje własne myśli. Myślenie dziecka, nie jest ograniczone przez żadne czynniki. Dziecko nie myśli o swoich predyspozycjach do danej roli. Nie przejmują się sferą finansów, by zrealizować dany cel. Dzieci wierzą w to co same stworzą! Zatem obudź w sobie dziecko. Nie bój się chcieć! Marzenia ogranicza tylko przestrzeń między twoim prawym a lewym uchem. /syrocky

last night, I met a girl who asked me for advice on “how to be happy”. She said she struggled with confidence and often feels stressed by the idea of success. ...as I continue to navigate life myself, there’s a general piece of advice I’ve learned that has helped me feel my best - take care of yourself.
Get very clear about the kinds of activities that make you feel alive and help you disconnect from outside pressures. Sometimes we forget how important the simplest things can be to living a balanced life: sleeping enough, working out, good nutrition, even laughing.
Secondly, ask yourself if you’re making kind choices. Are you giving back? Adding value to your family or the community around you? Are you smiling enough?
I wanted to use this months @kinderbeautybox to remind people just how special we all are. By showing yourself love + care you’ll be able to offer so much more to the things that matter to you.
If you subscribed to @kinderbeautybox you’ll be receiving some of our favorite #vegan self care products, and hopefully when you use them you’ll be reminded that you’re not only taking care of yourself but you’re also helping us give back to a #crueltyfree organization trying to make kinder choices in a big way.
