We are not happy because we are successful but we are successful because we are happy – Femi Adediran, 2020.
The only way to have it all is to balance it all. Each time we try to use substitution to find a solution to our life’s unbalanced equation, we always end up with an elimination, having to jeopardize one thing for the other – Femi Adediran, 2020.
When we are not balanced, even if we are able to fly, it can only be for so long – Femi Adediran, 2020.
Our balance is in our conscious effort to make out time for things that really matter in our life. There is time for everything if we make out the time – Femi Adediran, 2020.
Don’t get so busy that you get caught up with making a living so much that you forget to live to love and to laugh – Femi Adediran, 2020.
There are two times we get it wrong. When we are doing too little and when we are doing too much. Balance is in doing it right – Femi Adediran, 2020
To find equilibrium and to find balance is about the toughest job for all of us. Our life is one big compartment that must be harmonized in simultaneity if we must be happy and become fulfilled. If we get better in one compartment and worse in the other, then, we have to deal with and live with discordance tune every steps of the way. We are truly successful and happy when we are able to harmonize the various tunes of our life. The temptation has always been to “substitute” one aspect of our life for the other in a bid to “clear” our conscience. We think if one aspect gets better, it really does not “matter so much” if the other does not
Each time we try to use substitution to find solution to our life unbalanced equation, we always end up with an elimination, having to jeopardize one thing for the other. When your equation is not balanced, your answer cannot be right and when you are able to maneuver your way to right answer with unbalanced equation, it is called manipulation. We only become effective when every aspect of our life can run efficiently. We must be able to fire the cylinder at all front. We must be able to find balance spiritually, mentally, physically, socially, emotionally, financially and in every aspect of our life possible
- Our wholeness is in our balance
- Our agility is in our balance
- Our effectiveness is in our balance
- Our control is in our balance
- Our confidence is in our balance
- Our strategy is in our balance
- Out choice is in our balance
We become balanced if and when we are making a living, we are able to make a life simultaneously. It takes an aircraft to balance all forces before it can fly. At takeoff, all forces are equal. Flight is only possible at equilibrium. Our balance is in our conscious effort to make out time for things that really matters in our life. There is time for everything if we make out the time. Don’t get so busy that you get caught up with making a living so much that you forget to live, to love and to laugh.
The only way to have it all is to balance it all. Life becomes more expensive when we are out of balance, paying so much for so little. Balance is about finding rest at the close of the day. There are two times we get it wrong…When we are doing too little and when we are doing too much. Balance is in doing it right
- Sometimes the charisma is great but the character sucks
- Sometimes our business runs smoothly but our family is a far cry
- Sometimes we have a great career but our relationships is gone
There is a big difference between our career and our life, neither can be substituted for the other. A man have a career but not have a life. We are not happy because we are successful but we are successful because we are happy. Things will eventually fall apart when we cannot find our balance. There are times we find ourselves doing things we never ever dreamt of…There are times we find our self in places we never planned to be. There are times we become stucked with people we do not like and we are thrown off balance. The way to find equilibrium and be happy at such times is to promptly create a lifestyle by adaptation rather than have a pity party.
How to find your equilibrium:
- Be deliberate about the choices you make and live with it
- Make out time for what really matters to you
- Define boundaries and stick to it
- Pay attention both to details and to no details
- Set a goal in every area of your life
- Have a good sense of humor.
- Take everything into consideration before making a decision
- Don’t love others or your career more than you
- Assess and reassess your life regularly
- Stay close to your family and friends, most especially your childhood friends
- Do not lose your spiritual coordinate no matter what
When we are not balanced, even if we are able to fly, it can only be for so long.
