If you woke up this morning, you are here for a reason and that reason is to make a positive impact! Every morning, we wake up with a rechargeable battery…our brain. Our recent choices regarding sleep, exercise, reflection, stress management, and social connections, strongly influence how charged up we are. Some of us wake up drained! UGH! When we’re drained, it’s difficult to make a positive impact. This challenge is designed to strengthen, encourage, and charge up your own battery, so you have the cognitive capacity that fuels success. Only then can you increase capacity in others.

Performance success is largely determined by our positive mental health, which triggers a powerful chemical reaction in our brain. When we have proper levels of dopamine, serotonin, oxytocin, gaba, and endorphins, we greatly increase the likelihood that our brain and body will have the capacity to fire on all cylinders. This capacity increases our ability to demonstrate the 5 Cs of Leadership: competence, confidence, creativity, critical thinking, and compassion. We need these 5 Cs to reach our full potential and positively impact others. This 21-Day Challenge is designed to positively strengthen and stimulate your mind to create the chemical reaction in your brain that catapults you to success.
