Bringing Balance To Your Life

The word ‘happiness’ would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness.

A key ingredient to LASTING weight loss is learning to live a BALANCED life.

What is Balance?

Balance—a state of equilibrium; mental steadiness or emotional stability; to be equal or proportionate to

Balance is increasing that which is deficient
and decreasing that which is excessive.

Is your diet balanced? Is your life in balance with itself? Is your career in balance with itself? Are your diet, life and career in balance with each other?

Personally, I love that definition because it’s so simple.

If we have too much of something, it needs to be cut back.

If we have too little of something, we need to get more of it.

That’s all there is to it. That’s what balance is all about.

In my personal experience, balance is so important. Whenever anything in our life getsout of balance, things start to go wrong. Things start to fall apart and we start to suffer. Even worse, those around us often suffer just as much, if not more.

An Assignment For You

So I ask you to take out two pieces of paper. Title them:

  • Things That Are Excessive In My Life
  • Things That are Deficient In My Life

Over the next few days, start filling out these lists.

Once your lists are complete, I want you to start taking action.

Start taking steps to decrease all things you listed as being excessive.

Start taking steps to increase everything you listed as deficient.

Your life will definitely improve as a result.

Until next time, may you find your path by walking it . . .

As his 50th birthday grew nearer, Stanley decided enough was enough. He was tired of living a life of obesity.

Since February 2009, Stanley has dropped from a weight of 320 pounds to the mid-190s.  He has gone from a life of inactivity to walking a half-marathon daily and full marathons on many weekends.

His latest book in what he calls his “iWarriorWalk Pathfinder Series” is designed to help people ask (and answer) key questions about themselves.  Stanley believes that the only way We The People of the United States are going to solve our problems (especially the growing problem of obesity) is by asking the right questions and by coming up with appropriate answers.

Through Foundation EON, he hopes to help you (and America) do just that.
