This week at Arise Physical Therapy, our team studied an additional 4 habits of great leaders, a second podcast hosted by Craig Groeschel.

Craig is a Senior Pastor of Life Church, where he provides teaching, leadership, and guidance. He speaks at conferences around the world, has written several books including his latest release, Lead Like It Matters and hosts the Craig Groeschel Leadership Podcast.

At our clinic, not only do we provide a pathway toward a pain-free life, we also seek to inspire our clients to be better, healthier and stronger than before. Let us share a little of what we learned from Craig. Perhaps this will inspire you, as it has us, to create small habits that will help you become better tomorrow than you were yesterday!

"Don't stop when you're tired, stop when you're done"

1) The habit of "One-more-rep"

This habit refers to the mindset of pushing oneself to do one additional repetition of an exercise, even when one is tired or feels like giving up. This habit can also be applied outside of the weights room.To exceed the expectations of other. For example, whenever someone asksyou to do something, you could give them more than they asked for. It's a practice that benefits them and helps you to stand out in their minds.

2) The habit of "Touching the line"

An example Craig gives for this habit is from gym class where his coach would ask the students to run to a line, touch it and run back. This habit is about setting high standards for oneself and striving to meet them consistently. It means going above and beyond what is expected, and doing everything in one's power to achieve a goal or complete a task to the best of one's ability e.g. "touching the line". By consistently striving to "touch the line" and exceed expectations, individuals can build a reputation for excellence and earn the respect of their peers and colleagues.

"To exceed the expectation of others, raise the expectations of yourself"

3)The habit of "Fueling the fire"

This habit is about maintaining one's motivation and drive, even when faced with challenges or setbacks. It involves finding ways to stay inspired and energized, whether through setting new goals, seeking out new challenges, or reminding oneself of the positive impact that one's work can have. By maintaining a sense of purpose and passion, individuals can stay focused and productive, even in the face of adversity.

4) The habit of "Showing back up"

This habit is about resilience and perseverance. It means being willing to pick oneself up after a failure or setback, and to keep going despite obstacles or challenges. By continuing to show up and put in the effort, even when things are difficult, individuals can build resilience and develop a sense of self-confidence and self-efficacy.

"Enthusiasm is common, endurance is rare"

All of these habits can be valuable for individuals looking to improve their personal or professional lives. By practicing these habits consistently and intentionally, individuals can build mental and emotional strength, improve their performance, and achieve their goals.
