Balance Beyond the Busyness

Busyness is used as a measure of success. If able to do more, have more and be more, we somehow feel in control of our lives. If you feel this way, you’ve come to the right place. That very same drive that pushes you to do more, have more and be more is calling you into a courageous, purposeful life.

Finding balance beyond the busyness is possible. The answer is inside of you. But you have to slow down long enough to hear your own thoughts. Make time for yourself daily. Rediscover what you love to do, and do it. And if you have a goal, take action every day. The size of the step is unimportant. Just be consistent. Do it for you.

Step into the Vision

When I doubt that one step will make a difference, I take two small steps. If I think that two steps won’t leave a dent, I take three. Every time I feel like giving up, and that’s just about every day, I make a decision to take just one more step.

Simple Test

Goals and dreams are personal. As much as we want those we care about to support us, this isn’t always going to be the case. Do whatever it takes to stay positive and encouraged independent of others’ reactions.

Remember, it’s not your responsibility to convince others that what you’re doing is right. You can’t change them, nor is it your responsibility to change them. Trying to change others’ opinions or views only drains your energy and does nothing to advance your vision.
