Are we selling our souls for success or are we sacrificing one thing to get the other? Almost everyone wants to be successful but is everyone willing to pay the price? It’s almost nearly impossible to have a successful career, marriage, and friendship all at the same time. I might sound a bit pessimistic but this is what I’ve come to realize. At least one area in your life will suffer because of your success. To be successful in one thing requires a lot of time, dedication and patience. Sometimes that means time away from family, friends or your significant other to focus on perfecting your craft.
How can I be successful and live a balanced life? Is there a light at the end of the tunnel? Maybe? If you’re anything like me, you’re probably spending hours on hot summer days reading self-help books, emailing bookstores, writing blog entries, attending author events, updating your website and not spending much time with family or friends because you’re so driven and obsessed with success. But that’s when you need to stop and take a break to spend time with your loved ones. Success is important but it’s not the only important thing in your life. Family and friends are important too!
Are you able to balance a successful career and still find time to spend with your loved ones regularly? Tell me how you do it!
