Life balance, it's a ever changing process that involves constant change to where you focus your energy and passions and how you spend your time during the day, week, or month.

Resilient people take responsibility for themselves. They do not run away from responsibility or store negative feelings. They do not self abuse, other abuse or violate their relationships or company. Their commitment of excellence is truest to others and self.

Age of searching

Published in 1971, BORN TO WIN sold 4 million copies worldwide.

Fast forward to 2019, millions watch and listen to programs of anything in the promise to make us better.

Searching for something we have 'lost'.

We focus on the big things that we cannot change overnight, if at all. Because we don't know when we will die, we get to think of life as an inexhaustible well. And yet everything happens only a certain number of times, and a very small number really.

Most of us are stressed by those aspects in our lives that are highly demanding and important to us but, are out of our control.

There is no actions we can take to eliminate these sources of stress. (Overall economy, the poor lifestyle of a loved one)

By assuring ourselves and others that what is right in your life is far more powerful than what is wrong, we begin the process of change.


Small children posses passion, curiosity, energy and resilience. They are clear about how they feel, want and need.

The lucky few still feel that way.

But as we become adults we build walls between who we are and how we should live. We fear the expectations and judgement, this then causes factors within ourselves to draw to our own conclusions, decisions and perceptions of what we must do to survive.

What's stopping you comes down to 3 factors-

  1. Your own fear of change
  2. You define yourself and your life options in very limited ways
  3. The probability that important people in your life won't accept your change.

Start by working out what you value most important in your life

  • What are my priorities?
  • Is my life consistent with these priorities?
  • If not, what barriers are there?
  • What can I do to accomplish these priorities?

Anything that makes us feel appreciated, secure, energized and safe is worth keeping

We can only change when we accept that it is the awkwardness of change around us that stops us from doing just that.

If you don't want to, you simply will not

Two important factors to letting go of what's holding you back

  • Indentifying and accepting what you truly think, need and want.

  • Managing the closeness and distance with every person we have in our lives and those we meet.

Is your relationship holding you back
