Living balanced


“All men who have achieved great things have been great dreamers.”

~ Orison Sweet Marden

The idea of having a balanced life is actually more idealistic than it is practical. Implicit in the label is an acceptance that, at times, your life will be out of balance. And frankly, for REALTORS, life can see-saw quite dramatically from balance to imbalance, so it is very important to acknowledge this so you can deal with it. The ruling factor of living a counterbalanced life is to allow imbalance when key goals are at stake, but not to dwell in that state for too long. Why? Because when you allow yourself to live in imbalance for too long, you cannot maintain your energy, and you risk burnout.

To become a Real Estate Star Agent, you’ll need not only to maintain your energy, but to maintain it at a high level. High energy is not something that can be forced for any length of time. You can “get up” for the big moment, but maintaining that level ultimately comes from living your life in the most self-actualizing, personally fulfilling way. You’ll be counterbalancing between or among the vital areas of your life: work, family, health, spiritual pursuits. It is mind, body, heart, and soul. The best counterbalancing formula is something that’s unique to each individual. No one else can determine how neglecting or overemphasizing an area will impact your enthusiasm and your drive.

“Failure is success if we learn from it.”

~ Malcolm Forbes
