The other pillars in my life are:
WEALTH + INTELLECT + RELATIONSHIPS
When you’ve finally started taking care of yourself,
when you’ve finally allowed some time for personal growth
…you can finally focus everything else that will add abundance to your life.
You already have the strength to break free of negativity.
You have learned to not take things personally.
You have developed compassion towards other beings.
Everything only goes upwards from there.
You will have the foundation to build WEALTH and live the life you’ve dreamed of.
Because your new found confidence will take you to higher places.
While constantly searching for purpose, you will stumble upon new passions.
You will have the ability to take your experiences and contribute to the greater good.
You always find personal fulfilment when doing something you love.
You will have the time to satisfy your INTELLECT.
To be open-mind to new ideas.
To always seek new challenges.
To pursue lifelong learning.
This is vital for continuous personal development.
You will find success in nurturing your RELATIONSHIPS.
You will be surrounded by true friends who aren’t afraid to disagree with you.
They will point out your flaws and correct your misconceptions.
They will ground you by showing you things you can’t see.
Why surround yourself with people who will only tell you what you want to hear?
Why surround yourself with people who are exactly like you?
Without different mindsets, opinions and views on life, you will never grow as a person.
True friends will keep you rooted you to the ground, but feed you the water of life.
In the end, we all just want to be happy.
Happiness is well-being.
Happiness is life satisfaction.
But most importantly, happiness is contagious.
We all want to be around people who radiate positive vibes.
All these pillars, including spirituality and physical well-being represents the foundation and stability of your life. They need to be built and attended to as your grow as a person and they are the core of your personal development because without them, your strength will diminish.
What if an unexpected change suddenly materializes? Will you be ready to deal with it? Your life is only as strong as your weakest pillar. If one falls, the others will crumble alongside it so you will need to be focused on all of them, at any point in your life. If you succeed in one pillar but neglect the others, your life will become imbalanced and extremely prone to failure— if one leg of the table is broken, you won’t be able to hold anything up! You cannot work on your career and neglect your health and relationships, and you cannot spend all your entire life searching for enlightening and neglect your financial foundation, which is a necessity for basic survival.
If your foundations are strong, then you are ready to live beyond the normal parameters of life… to be able to take on greater challenges and responsibilities, and to live a life with greater purpose.
But perhaps none of your pillars are strong but that’s okay. As long as you ensure each are a work in progress that you are constantly attending to, you will do just fine in life.
