I would like to believe that I can create a balanced and well life, and at the same time be very active, engaged, and highly successful at the things I choose to fully engage in.
I have just discovered that in the past I felt that I needed to be over the top 100% engaged in work, and that to have balance would cause me to lose the edge and not succeed. A lot of this was driven by a fear of failure and (unhealthy) perfectionism
I would like to believe that being balanced and well can include over the top boldness and energy. I would like to believe that being balanced and well can mean that I create balance and wellness and it does not have to mean being laid back and passive. I can give 100% of myself to many different things in my life and I can plan my time so that I have great success at many of my goals. I believe I can learn to give this to myself – many diverse segments of a day that bring reward and value including work.
Just would like to hear that you agree 🙂
