Over the past several years, I have spent a lot of time and effort studying the Bible, spirituality, self-help, various coaching methods, diets and nutrition in hopes of learning all I can to help my clients (and myself) achieve the best life possible. Ultimately, the overarching goal is to attain a long, healthy life of balance, success, happiness and fulfilment. The old saying, “the more I know, the more I realize I don’t yet know,” (or something like that) comes to mind. Nevertheless, as I continue to study these various lifestyle issues, one thing has become predominantly clear:
When it comes to balance and wellness, much of our health, happiness, success and longevity is determined by the choices we make in life. The simple fact is, our choices can make us or break us.
If I sound like a broken record here, that’s good! This is a point that should be well learned and reiterated throughout our lives. None of us is ever too far advanced in our spiritual walk or personal development to think that he or she is above making bad choices. The Scriptures state it well in 1 Cor. 10:12 –
“Therefore let anyone who thinks he stands [who feels sure that he has a steadfast mind and is standing firm], take heed lest he fall [into sin].”
The issue of making good choices is one that I find myself constantly having to hammer home with my clients, no matter what their troubling issue or crisis may be.
On a Practical Note. . .
As an executive wellness coach, much of what I do concerns helping my clients make right choices in the above areas to find BALANCE. Today, let’s all make a point to energize our lives by making the best choices surrounding the above areas.
And, as always, if there’s mystery concerning what these best choices or practices are, consider hiring a COACH, or at least do some research for yourself to figure it out.
Life is too short NOT to squeeze out our BEST while we still have ample opportunity.
