Consistency is what it really takes to form a habit, but what does it take to be consistent? Motivation.
Start with your why. Why are you changing your habits? Why do you want to see a difference in the way you feel? Putting your why and reasoning at the forefront of your mind will create a pathway for change.
Without real motivation, all the willpower in the world is meaningless.

What is The Jill Cruz Podcast?
If you are a woman in leadership and/or aspiring for greater leadership and you are looking to have it all; success in your career, personal life, and health, you're going to love this podcast season.
I am incredibly passionate about this topic because I believe that as women leaders we can have it all! We don't have to settle for being successful in just one area of life such as our careers. We can orchestrate a life that is fulfilling, pleasurable, and healthy in all areas. We are all a "work-in-progress" but it's important to BELIEVE we can have it all or we surely won't get that.
We will be speaking about what it takes to be a successful leader AND have a thriving personal life. Topics include passion, purpose, grit, compassion, self-awareness, thought leadership, self-care, wellness, visionary thinking, and strategic leadership.
