Balance Your Talents.
Connect. Give. Take. Learn.
We’ve all seen the gymnast with perfect form, poise, preciseness and execution. They make it seem so easy and often this gives us a false sense that we could do exactly what they are doing without much effort.
However, we all quickly realize that in time our athletic ability is not what it used to be. Our discipline to be the best at our craft has slightly slipped. We are not as tenacious as we once were. Why? Because life happens around us. We get busy, we get distracted, our priorities change and this thing called balance comes into play in a huge way!
What do you mean KJ? I’m successful, my business is doing extremely well, so I must be in balance, right? Friends, you may be in balance while you’re on the balance beam, but when it is time for you to successfully stick your landing (when all the eyes are on you) how will you do? To prepare for a successful landing, let’s discuss some concepts that will change the way you think about personal development, leadership and business.
In addition to giving, don’t be afraid to take a little (but make sure you give first – lol). Be mindful to check your ego at the door. Don’t be too proud, bull-headed, close-minded or busy to miss out on best practices, continuous improvement ideas, innovative techniques and things that will transform your life and your business. We are living with innovation every day. Don’t miss your genie in a bottle!
Lastly, keep your balance by committing to be a life-learner. Don’t just pay your membership fees to be emailed the organization’s amazing newsletters or to have your company listed in their directory. Learn something from the connections, the giving and taking of information and combine that with your desire to be the best and to remain the best in your field. That’s how you consistently stick your landing my friends! Now get out there, strike the balance that works for you and win!
