Happy (almost) Summer!

Next Tuesday marks the first official day of Summer!

Although Summer hasn’t technically started yet, many of us are already in that Summer frame of mind.

For those of you who recently emerged from your busy season caves, we encourage you to lean into the fun that this season offers! Summer is often a great time to take vacation, catch some sunshine, and enjoy spending time with the people and things you love most.

Summer is also one of the best times to create healthier habits to support yourself!

Creating new habits requires you to rewire your brain. You must unlearn old, long-repeated patterns and carve new neural pathways. This takes a lot of energy! That’s why slower, more relaxed times (like Summer) are ideal for learning new things and making positive change.

We know you’re a very smart human. You probably know you could take better care of yourself and be a healthier leader and human being. We bet you even have some ideas for how you could go about doing it.

So, what’s stopping you?

If you said, “Nothing, I’m already doing it,” congratulations!! Based on our experience working with thousands of accountants, you’re probably doing something that most of your colleagues are not. Most accountants struggle to prioritize themselves and make the changes necessary to be a healthier leader. Please, don’t keep what you’re doing a secret! Share what’s working well for you with your colleagues, and inspire them to make change, too.

However, if something is stopping you from making yourself a priority, let’s dig deeper.

Making true, sustainable change starts from the inside out. It requires you to change your thinking. Too often, your own limiting beliefs stand in the way of the change you want. They stop you from being the leader and human you really want to be.

Check out our latest episode of Leading Possibilities, where we explore how your beliefs get in the way of prioritizing yourself. We also share some ideas for how you can start shifting those beliefs to create the possibility for lasting change. After all, YOU are the most important person in your life. Isn’t it time to start taking care of you for a change?

We know that making true, sustainable change is hard. That’s why we’re launching a brand new coaching community in just two weeks that’s dedicated to reimagining a healthier leadership model for the accounting profession – the I2L Healthy Leaders Community!! This positive community will give you the support, accountability and connection you need to make the change you want for only $39 a month. Join us as an inaugural member today, and you’ll even get your first month free!

We wish you a healthy, happy Summer!!

See you in the DOP,
