Creating life balance consciously put’s you in the drivers seat. Dr. Marshall Rosenberg, author of Nonviolent Communication, broke down the conditions that creates a lack of power in ones world. One of these conditions is giving authority over to some unseen source. Giving one’s power away disconnects one from their inner support and experiencing joy and happiness in life itself.
This workbook is the start to harnessing your focus and aiming it at the parts that make up your life. In this model there are nine life areas to bring focus to equally for balance and harmony. This exercise replaces the stories one tells themselves with checking in to explore intention for creating choices.
Remaining in the stories increases their hold that nurtures hopelessness and futility. Stopping to define the life you want to create brings hope and anticipation.
This practical life exercise can be applied to personal transformation and adapted into family life, and businesses. Imagine how this template focus can cultivate a deeper connection and experience to the things that really matter. The things that bring success, joy and harmony. For example:
A mom pausing to center and consciously define her current focus while considering if it is meeting her needs. What areas can shift her attention to balance out the life energy that may be dominated by one or two areas?
Awareness is the doorway to personal transformation.
Her second step is to consider her families experience separately from the first step. The first step is focused upon personal transformation. Yes your are reading this correctly. Her personal needs are separate from her whole family needs. If she is not taking care of herself, her family will not thrive. Interdependence is an important role model for children. This doesn’t translate into selfishness, rather it decreases it. As she lays this template over the current family experience the areas not receiving equal attention can be tweaked from her growing awareness of differences between what is currently happening and her inner definition of family and home life.
Another example is in the work place. This is a model that could bring employees and employers into alignment with the values of the company. To begin it would be an individual exercise of reflecting on ones own needs for each area and then once again to reflect on how they are contributing to the companies nine life areas. Some sample questions equally important for the employer and employee are:
Are they contributing to their own needs for fame at the expense of co-workers and the business themselves?
Are they meeting their needs for financial wages only while not interested in this job as a career? If so, how is this contributing to the moral and shared values of the company?
Is the employer interested in a healthy work space that influences the mental, emotional and physical health of the employees? This question would require a reflection of ALL nine life areas as each one pertains to overall functional health of a business.
Healthy employees, healthy business.
