When you say to yourself “I want work, life, balance what you are really doing is programming your subconscious mind as to what you want out of life. The only problem is the subconscious will take what you mean quite literally and it what it really hears is “I want” and if the I want is attached to the words “work” guess what, it will give you exactly that…W O R K!
The law of attraction (LOA) is very specific, if you remember the DVD The Secret or if you read the book what it told you was that whatever you focussed on you could create and manifest into your life, so if you are literally focussing on “I want work, life balance” your subconscious doesn’t hear the last half of the sentence just the first bit, so you really have to start getting really focussed and clever here.
What you are really after is balance in your life and that the entire package, family, leisure time, time for yourself, work, health, happiness, joy, fulfilment are all in alignment and congruent with each other.
You also have to start from the desired “end goal” which is balance in your life to start making the changes you want in your life.
So how do we do this?
Firstly, and this is very important, you simply must start making time to incorporate into your life the things that truly do make you happy, whatever they might be. Time with your family, quality time with yourself, going for long walks, knitting, driving cars, whatever it is that makes you happy just go out there and start doing it!
For some reason, we can always make the time to find time for more work, which isn’t our priority, but strangely enough when asked to make time to do the things that we enjoy in life we are seemingly incapable of making that time and yet the principles are the same but we always prioritise work!
The company you are employed by and as much as you want or don’t want will ALWAYS be there that’s almost a given, but precious time making yourself happy is almost finite and before you know it life has passed you by and you wonder where you could have made a positive difference not only to your own life but to the lives of your nearest and dearest.
I know this from bitter experience, although I was lucky enough to “see the light” and from an absolute disaster was able to make significant and lasting changes in my life although from the beginning I was able to have enough power over my own life to be able to make time for my family so that when my son and daughter were growing up, even though I was running an incredibly busy company I still found the time to make sure I didn’t miss my kids growing up or spending time with my family and loved ones.
I inserted “codicils” into my contract that I was going to the gym every single day at 12.30 as I found that was the perfect panacea for everything in my life at that time, that was “me time” time to unwind, and when I came back I was always energised and recharged ready to get on with whatever the day threw at me and no matter what time I had to stay till as I also insisted that I start later in the day so that I could take my kids to school in the mornings.
These were conscious decisions I took at the time to make the changes in my life that I knew and wanted at that time in my life to bring me fulfilment and although it wasn’t perfect it worked!
It wasn’t until many years later when my life crashed and burned that I started to make my own personal life balance an utmost priority and the techniques and strategies I’ve used over the years are the same ones I’m sharing here with you NOW!
These strategies work, I know because I’ve used them, I still use them to this day and I’ve taught hundreds of others how to use them to find happiness in their lives.
The time to start making those changes is quite literally NOW!
This is the moment there is NEVER a better time, tomorrow has gone, tomorrow hasn’t been created yet, but remember, the life you live TODAY was created by the thoughts, feelings and actions you had yesterday, last week, last month, last year. So, doesn’t it make sense that the thoughts, feelings and actions you start to have today, tomorrow, next week, next year will shape and form your life.
