will assist you in creating a solid plan for making progress on what YOU need.
Balance is the type of thing that sounds good in theory but can be difficult to
apply in real life.
With the constant demands from our work and families, it may be difficult to
imagine a life that allows for all the things you would like to do.
Many men and women make the same mistake of putting other’s needs ahead of their
own. However, this kind of decision-making is a costly mistake in the long run.
Burnout, depression and loss of health are often the price we pay for not making
balance a priority in our lives.
Perhaps intuitively, great leaders and successful individuals throughout time
have known the importance of having balance in their lives. Instead of living
to work, they worked to live.
In the process, they became much more well-rounded and balanced in their lives -
characteristics that strongly correlate to true success and personal

following life categories:
Now let’s look at each of the above key categories of your life and try to
determine what your current level of fulfillment is in each area.
Are you following your hopes and dreams? Do you feel highly engaged and self-fulfilled in each category? If not, then please keep reading.
Only YOU can identify what you desire to achieve, and only you can create your
plan and strategy for improvement in each area – and we can help!
In the next section you can begin your journey toward creating a proven plan for
success and self-fulfillment.

Fulfillment In Gratitude!
As we approach the Thanksgiving holiday, we are reminded of all that we have -
and all that we should be thankful for.
Poem on Gratitude & Thanksgiving
The sun was shining in my eyes, and I could barely see- Author Unknown
To do the necessary task that was allotted me.
Resentment of the vivid glow, I started to complain--
When all at once upon the air I heard the blind man's cane.
We challenge you to read the preceding poem 2-3 times. As your read, think about
all the things that you have complained about over the last week... understand
that your level of Gratitude determines the quality of your Attitude.
"The person who gets the farthest is generally the one who is willing to do and dare. The sure-thing boat never gets far from shore."
- Dale Carnegie
