Whether or not you're accomplished or happy, we all have areas of our life that could use some nourishment – and sometimes, different amounts of TLC (tender loving care). Think about your relationships, for instance. Do you feel like you've hit the peak in your relationships or love life? Feeling like everything has worked out or you've found the love of your life? If so, congrats! But now let's take a look at another area: your career. Are you doing work you love? What about your health? Do you feel happy and energized?
EACH AREA OF YOUR LIFE IS INTERCONNECTED.
I believe when we neglect any area in our life, we become imbalanced. That energy leaks into other areas of your life. Balance is achieved when we are nourishing every area that's important to you.
I will say, it's not about living a perfect life where we're 100% on our game 100% of the time, but the idea is to achieve healthy and balanced growth. In my journey, I focused so much on my career; I neglected my health and relationships. Then when I began to focus on my health and relationships, I paid less attention to my finances. Now I can say I'm nourishing and giving love to each area that needs me. When all our energy is focused on one thing, it's all too easy to find yourself off balance, not paying enough attention to areas that are so important in your life!
THAT'S WHEN IT'S TIME TO TAKE A "HELICOPTER VIEW" OF YOUR LIFE, SO THAT YOU CAN BRING THINGS BACK INTO BALANCE.
Too many people are caught up with making a living – and not designing their life. But to be able to design your life, you must first create your map of where you are today.
- Tony Robbins
To live your life to the fullest, I believe there are four areas of life you need to develop in balance. Those four areas are health & wellness, love & relationships, career & business, and spirituality.
HEALTH & WELLNESS
LOVE & RELATIONSHIPS
CAREER & BUSINESS
The Wheel of Life is a great way to view each facet of your life so you can assess what's off balance. As such, it helps you rate its quality level, so you can uncover which areas have room for improvement and identify where the gaps are between where you stand and where you want to be.
The Wheel of Life can be found on Google in numerous websites but here's a workbook I created especially for you with some questions and action steps. It also has these four areas broken down into more specific areas.
