Spring and easter are seasons of growth and renewal. We are 1/4 way through 2017 and as the year unfolds this is a great time to assess how your life and business is going, then course-correct if it's veering in a direction you don't desire.
This is also the perfect time to reflect on the things that really matter if we want to live by design and enjoy balanced success.
To enjoy balanced success, there are six areas in our lives where we can experience growth. Even if in the natural you have an area that looks hopeless; like nothing can ever change, be encouraged as we remember the tomb Jesus was laid in is empty. There is hope for your "dead" situation too.
Below are key areas to enjoying balanced success.
1.Spiritual - God and Faith
2.Physical - Health and Fitness
3.Relationships- Family and Friends
4.Personal - Mental and Recreation
5.Career - Business and Work
6.Financial - Money and Assets
These broadly represent various aspects in our lives. They may not necessarily be in the above-written order of priority; however, it is my conviction that the first two are possibly the most important. To discover how to establish healthy priorities, tune into today's Easter special.
What good are millions if you have no purpose and meaning in life? Many people try to fill the spiritual void with money, material things and dead-end philosophies. You and I know of successful personalities and rich Hollywood stars who are empty and depressed in search of "a deeper" meaning of life.
They have a lot to live on but nothing to live for. Sometimes we look for fulfillment and happiness in substance abuse, alcohol or promiscuous lifestyles hoping to find
Sometimes we look for fulfillment and happiness in substance abuse, alcohol or promiscuous lifestyles hoping to find that thing or that perfect "soul-mate" who will complete us. Likewise, what good is a 7-figure salary if you are lying in a hospital bed sick and unable to enjoy life with your family?
When we sacrifice our relationships at the altars of career and business, we may find ourselves with lots of money but no loved ones to enjoy it with. What good is a huge beautiful mansion if it is not adorned with love and laughter? Unless you invite phony friends who only love your money.
My prayer for you this season is that God will revive the dead areas in your life, rekindle your dormant dreams, and renew a passion for His purpose - as you reawaken to the true meaning of Easter. “For God so He loved the world, He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him will not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16.
You are in this world dear reader, so whosoever includes you...
Happy resurrection Sunday and God bless!
