Be a Leader: Take Charge of Your Health

On January 19, we commemorate one of this country’s greatest icons Martin Luther King, Jr. King states that his true contribution wasn’t a messiah of civil rights, but as an organizer of people and causes. Many believe in the “great man” concept of leadership, but in reality, change comes from the mobilization and action of citizens. Below we consider the legacy of this great man and what we can learn from his work.

“A genuine leader is not a searcher for consensus but a molder of consensus.” – MLK

King knew that you need to count on every person to create the change you want to see in the world. We all must become the leaders that we desperately lack.

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”– MLK

We are in need of change. We can still accomplish great things and take control of our own health.

“Almost always, the creative dedicated minority has made the world better.” – MLK

The solution is not as far away as it seems — it’s you. Improving your daily choices in regards to lifestyle factors such as nutrition, exercise, mindset, and healthy neurology is attainable. You need to take action and be the leader of your own health to live a longer, fuller life.

Be the leader and mobilize your family and loved ones to transform their health. If we are looking for change in this world, it starts with you.

“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’”– MLK
