I truly find this so sad. In an age of repeatedly hearing ‘you can be/do whatever you want’.....why is this percentage still so high?
Are you in that percentage?
What your legacy will be?
I have spoken with many people who have had these thoughts during this time in our world. I have even had more people coming to me asking me to mentor them to build their own side income, knowing that part of this is discovering who you really are.
For me, these thoughts stemmed from
my experience in hospital when I was stripped of everything that was me and was basically a number in a bed. Then I decided to re-define my life and spend every spare moment with family and doing good in the world.
One of those moments when all the trivial stuff - the mean girls, the stressing over the little things, the mother guilt, the spinning through life on autopilot day after day - just don’t really matter anymore?
I did. Mine was facing death.
I am in the position of deciding when I work, where I work, and how much work I do in a day. Still, I sometimes have to check in my work/life balance - because I LOVE what I do so much, it can often take over my day and week!
Here are some ideas if you find your balance is a little out of control too quickly check-in and adjust it.
Whether you work in a corporate environment, in a high physical environment, or even from your own home environment like me, we all have to try and maintain a positive work/life balance. It's essential for leading a healthy and productive life. How?
A few years ago I was asked by Pete Evans, an internationally renowned chef, restauranteur, author, and television presenter, for my story so he could feature it on his Facebook page. Initially, I was shocked and questioned him saying no-one would really be interested. He said it would help others, and so I agreed.
Lucky Pete is a patient man because what happened next was procrastination, excuses, and general avoidance of writing it down. When I eventually did, I found myself becoming physically ill while writing it over the next couple of weeks. My body was reacting to reliving it again.
