Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving
Balance is good, because one extreme or the other leads to misery, and I’ve spent a lot of my life at one of those extremes.
In this episode we discuss How To (Find..and) Keep Your Entrepreneurial Balance
DO NOT take this podcast at face value. Consider the true essence of YOUR life hanging in the balance and take a few small action steps towards becoming a little more clearer in life about who you are, what defines you and how to let that light shine to its fullest…That is my wish for you =)
I cannot afford to let this just be another post. This podcast comes from the bottom of my soul and spills out with conviction on how critical this is to living life well.
Standing at my sons 10th birthday party re-woke me up to this. I remember thinking as he blew out his candles…”this was why I started in real estate”.
10 years later, I have been very blessed to give my son a lifestyle I was not able to have as a child and most importantly, my time.
We must carve out our times in the clock that allow us to look back and say “yeah, I am glad I took that time” or live with the notion that by being disciplined enough to work out every day not only helps us to live fuller, more focused lives but it also promotes us to live better throughout our “golden” years.
This podcast was meant to shake you up. Stir things inside. Question your motive.
P.S. If you like this podcast you will love the movie Click with Adam Sandler. I have an amazing story behind this movie but thats for another day. Im sure once you see it, you will be able to relate.
