As human beings, our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world–that is the myth of the atomic age–as in being able to remake ourselves.” —Mohandas K. Gandhi
Balance is a journey, an adjustment from the the old to the new. Think of it as coming out of the darkness of a movie theatre and walking out into the light of day. Your eyes make an adjustment. First, you cannot see, but then your pupils adjust to the light and you see.
You cannot get to a place of balance and say, "Ok, I am here," and then set out to reap the benefits forever. Your world is contantly changing, and you too must have to change with it. Who you are today is not who you were nine years ago. Your responsibilities, motivation, and priorities change. You must be a lifelong learner, be aware, flow with the light, and constantly work toward where you want to be. Focus on what is most important. Release what is out of your control. Release the past. Release old behaviors that do not move you forward. For most, this process is the difference between success and accepting defeat.
The key to moving forward is to embrace change. Let's get started . . .
