What an honor to be featured on the cover of @real_leaders magazine and its special edition this month — The Crisis Leadership Playbook — written to inspire leaders across industries from all walks of life to focus on using EVERY opportunity, EVEN CRISIS, to create something bigger and better. “In times of great uncertainty, LEADERSHIP is the most valuable skill you can have. Regardless of what’s happening around you as a leader, there’s a part of YOU that’s STRONG. Call on that part of you. The part of you that’s HUNGRY. The part of you that’s COURAGEOUS in the face of unfathomable fear. The part of you that WON’T PUT UP WITH EXCUSES.” I also share my Top 10 qualities of effective leadership during times of crisis in this issue.

Push Yourself Out Of Your Comfort Zone Every Day
Tony first validated the fear that all of us are feeling right now: how could we not be afraid? But he mentions that courage isn’t ignoring our fear, it’s having that fear but doing the difficult anything anyway. That’s why we should be doing things that push ourselves out of our comfort zone every day, like trying a really hard workout, getting up earlier than we normally would, or even starting the day with an ice bath like Tony himself. This trains our brain to be courageous and manage discomfort, so we can not only survive times like these, but thrive. What are you doing to push yourself out of your comfort zone?
Research Positive News
Tony’s always taught that focus equals feeling, and because so much of our news is economized to report the negative, the world is feeling worse than ever. As a solution, one of the simplest things we can do is to do some simple research of our own to find out encouraging, optimistic news that networks aren’t financially incentivized to report. For example, did you know that early estimates of Covid Fatalities are 20 times more than what epidemiologists are now projecting? This is the information that’s important for us to be digesting right now, as it will shift our focus and change our everyday feelings.
Change Your Body Posture To Encourage Emotional Growth
Tony stresses that motion creates emotion, and that our body physiology directly affects our brains, and simple activities, like changing our posture to a “Superman” power posture, even for just 2 minutes, can increase testosterone levels in our bloodstream by 20%, and reduce cortisol, the stress hormone, by 30%, which will make you 33% more likely to confront something you were afraid to confront.
