life won't always be balanced
Do you ever hear the 3-Life Balancing Myths? If you haven't, then chances are you're living in a dream world. They're getting bigger as time goes on. They're being taught to people all over the world, but most people don't know how true these myths really are. Here is what you need to know about them:
First, they're not real. People have different personalities, and while it might sound good to believe that you can change your personality into something else that will make you more successful, it just isn't possible. It's not one size fits all, and if it was, everyone would be doing it.
Second, it doesn't exist. People are born winners and they're always winners. They have the best of everything, they have the greatest relationships, they're the most educated, the wealthiest, etc... But if you've ever been born poor, then you know it takes more than just winning to achieve anything worthwhile in life. You're going to have to work for it and you'll always have to work for it, even if no one ever knows how much effort you're exerting because your luck still hasn't found you yet.
Third, life won't always be balanced. Yes, you will have challenges, hard times, problems, and failures, but there are a lot of great things that you'll experience in your lifetime. Your opportunities will never stop flowing, and you'll see a lot of amazing things that you'll be proud of throughout your life. So, keep these 3 life balancing myths in mind, and you'll never have to worry about being successful.
It's a real, and very logical belief. You have to have some degree of control over everything in your life if you want to get anything accomplished. If you try to micromanage every little aspect of your life, you'll never find real success. You have to balance.
It's a nice myth. It's one that sounds very easy and all you need to do is make some changes and you'll be all right. But the truth is, most people who try to do this don't do it for very long. They're left with all this control-free power, and they think that the world owes them something. The problem with this life-balance theory is that it doesn't work. In reality, you have to earn everything you have.
It's a useful myth, too. It makes you feel better if you think you're rich or famous. And it's comforting to think that if you're just starting out, things will always be OK. But in reality, it all goes down the drain when you realize that no matter how good you are, there is always someone richer, happier, more talented, better educated and better suited to the job than you are. And when you think you're at that point where you'll have nothing to lose, then you might lose sight of the fact that you are in fact living in a 3rd world nation, one where resources are so poor and people are so desperate that they'll do almost anything for a few dollars.
So you see, it's really not about a "life balance." It's about recognizing that you got a lot of luck on your side and that you have to use it wisely. If you'd rather have a short term solution to some problems you might be having, then you should probably move onto some more long term solutions. But if you want to achieve a life of real prosperity and freedom, then it's a good idea to focus your efforts on achieving the kind of prosperity and freedom that people in third world nations seek. Only then will you truly understand what a life balance is and what it's capable of.
