What if you could instantly find more balance and happiness in every area of your life just by making one simple distinction?
There are four main areas of our life and two basic approaches to life. One approach works the best in two of the areas of our lives, and the other works best in the other two. If you are feeling less than balanced or less than happy in any area of your life, chances are, you have been attempting to use an approach that may not be the best one for that area of your life.
Making the simple distinction about what the four areas of your life are and the best approach for each area can help you to instantly experience more balance and happiness in all four areas of your life and can help you get the best possible results in each area.
The four areas of life are:
Your ART: This area represents what you love to do most in life. This doesn’t have to be anything artistic, it is just simply what you have the most passion for doing in your life. This is your ART.
Your HEALTH: This area represents the health of your mind, body, emotions and spirit and the health of all the stuff that you are in charge of . This includes the your house, car, etc,
PEOPLE: This area represents all the people you interact with in your life
MONEY: This area represents all the ways you make and spend money
The two approaches to life are:
The first approach is Making the ENERGY the main focus. In this approach, you make the feeling of the process the most important thing. No matter what, you make sure you are feeling as good as possible during the entire process. Any results that happen are of secondary importance.
The second approach is making the STUFF the main focus. In this approach, you make the results you want to achieve the most important thing. How the process feels, can be important, but only relative to the results you have set out to achieve.
You’ll notice that most of us have grow up in a world that primarily teaches us to focus on approach number two. Our culture also offers up approach number one only as a rebellious, irresponsible or fantasy option to escape from approach number two.
What if we as humans don’t have to choose one approach or the other? What if BOTH approaches are the best if we apply them to the right areas of our lives?
If you look at each of the four areas of life, you can notice that there are two areas of our lives that work the best when we use approach number one and the other two areas work the best when we use approach number two. They are:
For ART and PEOPLE, approach number one works the best. Want to create beautiful art or beautiful experiences in the ART area of your life? Want to build great relationships with people that last and last? Making the feeling of the process or the ENERGY your main focus will give you the best results.
For HEALTH and MONEY, approach number two works the best. Want to have a 12% (if you’re a guy) or 18% (if you’re a girl) body fat ratio? Want to make 75K per year working only a few hours a week? Making the results or the STUFF your main focus will give you the best results.
If we divide our time, energy and focus equally among these four areas of our life: ART, HEALTH, PEOPLE and MONEY, and we use the best approach for each area, we can experience more balance , more happiness and better results in all areas simultaneously!
