Jim Rohn said that and he was absolutely right! Of course, this statement goes against the established and time tested ways of just working your butt off and everything will fall into place. And I'm glad it does, because I'm here to tell you that the old ways of pursuing success at all costs, just doesn't work. It may bring you some success in a very narrowly focused area, but the rest of your life will be a mess! A successful life is one that encompasses all areas of your life, not just your business, not just your car or clothes, or possessions, or even your relationships. Sure, that's what society and the media want us to believe and portrays for us, but those who go down that path usually end up very sad, confused and alone. Real success, is a true balance of all the areas of your life. It's like the old three legged stool example, take one leg away and it wont be long until you fall. Live your life to the fullest in all your areas, never overworking, always knowing tomorrow is another day. Fill your heart with gratitude for who you are, what you have in your life, and you will attract even more. Treat people with the kindness and respect they deserve and you will never lack for either friends nor clients. Become the person you know you can be, and success will not be far behind.
