Real Balance – Part 3 of 3

The balance we hear so much about is internal … or the external (tangible) balance of work/life we strive for is a result of the internal balance.

We strike internal balance when we intimately know our core values and give them equal attention.

I’m a dedicated believer in a strengths versus weakness approach to personal growth and development. When we overuse a value (which represents one or multiple strengths), a weakness appears. Subsequently, more weaknesses appear from the values/strengths being ignored as we over focus on the overused value. We do this when we let fear enter our value’s definition.

Real balance is found internally in how well you know and understand your values and in how well you make decisions in the light of their positive definition. Real balance is found in a healthy, conscious, even application of attention to your positively defined values.

Honor your values without fear. Find real balance.

As we move deeper into this challenging 21st Century, I’m more convinced than ever that the core of my work is in helping individual leaders remember who they are − a trueness. It is about confidence found in your authenticity.
