There is often this idea that if you have money in the bank, and I do mean Money all your problems will be somehow magically solved, all issues would dissipate and you would not be stressing out ever again.
It's possible that this idea is not entirely ours, after all we have been told over and over that money = success, but that is not entirely true. Financial success is but an element of a well balanced fulfilling life, and to aim for things exclusively thinking of the money you will make is to deprive yourself of other important elements of you, that make you who you are.
Do not misunderstand me, there is nothing wrong about wanting to have money and striving for stability in your life. I would even go as far as to say that it's an important part of success. All I'm trying to convey is that there are other needs that should not be ignored.
We all love to feel the approval of others, specially those who are important to us, our family. Sometimes this search for financial stability is just a way we attempt to make sure they approve of who we are, it becomes a way we can "guarantee" a paycheck and be accepted as someone who is doing the "right thing".
The truth is however that in that quest for approval many tend to lose their sense of self direction. In search for what they believe is financial freedom they voluntarily add a ball and chain to their ankle and play along. It's ironic to put it simply.
I have said a few times already how important it is to do some inner searching, to find out what you want in life, who you are and who you are not. And this quest to balance probably starts with these reflections. What maybe I have not mentioned is that once we start to achieve this balance we start to attract the right kind of people to our life, the ones who get you, who support you even if you are not playing the "normal game" we are all supposed to be playing.
It does come down to having some faith, or at least eliminating the fear of failure as much as possible. Because in your quest for balance you might get confused at times, you might not know if eliminating something or someone from your life is the right thing to do, yet deep inside you are aware that that job, that friendship or relationship is one of those elements that keep you out of balance.
Whatever element is missing in your life, there is no better time than now to attempt to find it, to attempt to achieve the right balance. If you need to learn more about finances, you know it would help you immensely.... What about starting today? if you want to have healthier relationships, know why they have not worked in the past... Why not learn more about yourself? why not gather all the information out there available to help you do so? Why not start today?
It is easier said than done, but the good news is that it all starts with one step forward, one step towards a more balanced you. And it could all start today...
I will sign off for now wishing you all a beautiful and productive Tuesday
