Life is a balancing act but what do we mean by balance?
Balance comes from making choices that make ourselves feel better instead of worse. Balance in our lives comes from accepting what life presents us without trying to change it, cling to it or push it away.
Balance is therefore a fluctuating timeline that changes with time.
We have all been there we want to eat healthy, be fit, get that promotion, start that free course or start that course we paid for.
Let’s face it most of us have areas where we want to improve.
But why are we so bad at reaching our goals?
It’s not only a matter of lacking willpower.
What most people are missing is a clear plan for developing themselves further.
It’s the “how’s” and “why’s” that will guide people along the way – even when the first excitement has passed.
What is your why and what is your purpose?
What kind of person do you want to be?
What are you passionate about?
What inspires you?
What is your end goal?
