“Life without balance can cost you your relationships. Life without balance can cost you your health. Life without balance can cost you your spirituality. Life without balance can cost you your wealth and your happiness. So find things to motivate you from all areas of life. Your success depends on it.” —Jim Rohn
The New Year is here and we are all pumped up to set bold goals for ourselves and attack them with full gusto. But before you declare big, hairy, and audacious goals for yourself and start designing a roadmap to get yourself there, it’s best to gain some clarity with regard to your current situation. You must get a clear idea of where you are now and what areas you want to improve along with those that need some serious urgent work.
Life imbalance is a recipe for disaster. We have all come across people who have become successful in one area of life but are utter disasters in several other areas. You don’t want this to happen to you.
A person whose life lacks balance and harmony is destined to become unhappy, miserable, frustrated, insecure, and depressed. That’s why it’s best to not have all your eggs in one basket.
Focusing on succeeding in one area of life creates a great imbalance with the other areas, which only leads to negative consequences that could have been avoided in the first place with diligent planning.
