It's Not About How Much You Can Earn, It's About Balance

Real Estate Agent with Resort and Second-Home Specialist REALTOR Broker #21673

In case you missed Debbie Reynoldsblog about balance in our life and careers I am re-blogging it again. As we are all gearing up for our goals in 2016 I think BALANCE might be a good guiding principle to follow.

It's Not About How Much You Can Earn, It's About Balance

Goals to include balanceGenerally speaking most people will tell you to set your goals high and stretch yourself. If you made X this year surely next year you can make X++.  I say it is not all about the money or even the numbers. I think it is about quality and personal satisfaction and having balance to life.  Making money is fun but is not the answer to a satisfying life.

Money is not always a motivator either. The longer you have been in business world, chances are you are less affected by the almighty dollar. The things that matter most are doing business the right way, maintaining a sense of quality and integrity. Setting your sights on these things becomes more and more important the older you get and you can't put a price tag on them.

Having goals is important but having written goals that you can visualize is even more essential. A well rounded life with friends, family, philanthropy and faith are the salt and pepper of life and have to be factored into the plan. Picturing ourselves being happy is a legitimate and worthy goal. Don't just make your goals about dollars and sales quotas. Without the right balance, life is bland lacking the spice that brings out the flavor in living and working. It's not all about how much you can earn, it's about balance.

Health is wealth! all the money in the world cannot buy health - also time is valuable - it cannot be saved or  replaced - great repost Kathleen, thanks for sharing!

Money do not hurt anyone, but doing and thinking about only one thing in life can be very limiting....
