The Top 10 Ways to Achieve Balance in Your Life
1. Define Success for Yourself
Clarify and write down what success means for you. What would it look like, feel like, what would you hear if you were successful. Use these answers as your barometer....not somebody else's.
2. Get a Handle on Your finances Today
Pay your bills on time, do a budget, know how much is coming in and going out. Save at least 10%. Live within your means.
3. Get Rid of the Energy Drains
Resolve any issues that you have been thinking about for a long time, they drain your energy dry. Your brain is like a hard drive on your computer, when it gets full; it is difficult for other programs to function properly.
4. Discover Your Personal Drivers/Motivators
These are your personal values, explore what makes you tick from a beliefs and conditioned responses point of view.
5. Don't Just Settle for Anything Raise Your Own Bar
The higher you raise the bar, the fewer problems will appear in your life.
6. Take Care of Yourself
Schedule personal down time in your calendar. Treat yourself to a full day at the spa or a relaxing ride in the country. You don't have to have an agenda. Use the quiet time to reflect.
7. Create Abundance in All Areas of your Life
Create reserves in you finances, relationships, family, and work life. Living with the belief that there is always enough creates abundance and eliminates scarcity thinking and lack.
8. Clarify Your Expectations for Yourself and Others
If people know what to expect from you and you from them, there are no hurt feelings and you won't have to play the blame game.
9. Rid Yourself of the Attitudes of Others
Do not tolerate other peoples behavior if it drains your energy. Just "call" their behavior to their attention. They will usually stop trying to push your "buttons".
10. Recognize and Respect your Intuition
Your personal Intuition is like a force field that protects you from those who want to bring you harm or have ill intentions towards you.
