Success Is Balance
Last Update: Feb 23, 2019
I am an advocate of work-life balance and life balance overall. Needless to say, this quote is one of my favorites, SUCCESS IS BALANCE. In an age of material abundance, maintaining a healthy balance between work and all other aspects of life is a struggle. Many people have sacrificed their health and relationships for the pursuit of money. There is nothing wrong with pursuing dreams and aspirations, but we must have our priorities in order and aligned in all areas such as health, spiritual, occupation, recreation, family, and community.
Two reasons I love this quote:
1) I think Laila Ali (daughter of Muhammed Ali) hit it on the head with this one. I can see why a boxer would recognize the importance of balance. Having balance for a boxer is essential to the sport; the balance make it possible to sustain the blows and even knockdowns during the fight. Likewise, when building an online business, it feels like we are fighting ourselves or others for time to practice our sport (writing SEO content). We need BALANCE to endure and sustain success for the long haul.
2) I admire Laila Ali for what she has accomplished in the ring and outside of the ring. She is a wife, mother, community leader, and wellness advocate. She now has a TV show on HGTV where she does home interior decorating remodels for people with struggles. I think she epitomizes life balance. Laila Ali wears many hats. I think there is a misunderstanding that you can't work hard and have work-life balance. Yes you can. It's all about maximizing your time.
As you go about building your business, keep balance in mind. Don't forget about the other areas and roles in life. Continuously seek ways to be more efficient and productive so you can live a balanced life.
Thanks for reading.
