Balance. Inner balance, outer balance . . . these are things we strive for without even being aware of our end-goals. In our minds, it’s a nebulous something we just gotta have. I have come to realise that balance is the key to everything. It encourages finding your way to that special place where everything is as it ought to be. We all come across people who seem to have everything we want: dream jobs, dream houses, dream relationships, dream clothes, and so much more.
Sometimes we only see a mirage, a front to mask whatever’s really going down in their lives. Other times though, it is genuine. They do have their act together, and that is what draws us to them. Whilst I won’t profess to know the magic formulae for balance in all aspects of life, I do know, or rather think I know, that true balance comes from within.
Inner peace. Think about it. When you are at peace with yourself, you can take on anything that comes your way, overcome obstacles, and tackle tricky situations. But when your inner compass is out of whack, everything seems to go to pot: you are irritable, nothing is going the way you want it to, you know something is missing but you remain unsure what it is . . . I could go on indefinitely but I think you get my drift.
So how do you get this inner peace, find your balance, become part of the elite who have it all? Simple.
Look inside yourself. Examine your priorities, your choices, your habits, and your lifestyle. What are the things that bring you joy and are positive? What is holding you back from tapping into your full potential? In other words, identify the good, the bad, and the ugly. Change whatever is getting you down. Take affirmative action. Find what works for you and go for it. Life is short, my friends, let’s get the best out of it while we can.
Be bold, be exotic, be fabulous, but most importantly, be you.
