How would it be if you could choose for the things that are really important to you?
Today the world is changing fast: the information flow grows exponentially and this flow will continue to grow. The current economic conditions also make the necessary changes in the professional and / or financial area and the increasing demands do test the strength of our relationships and health. These changes require us to make choices every day. What information do we give attention? How much time do we spend on our relationships, family, our work and health?
Within these areas the same patterns do return continuously, which means that our focus is increasingly important in order to give direction to our lives. And to be able to determine your direction, it is necessary that you know where you want to go, what you want to achieve and what is important to you. So do you know what’s important to you in your life? Or in which area you would like to focus? This focus can make the difference between being overwhelmed or going with the flow.
What areas in our life are important and how do we keep the balance?
The speed of the current society requires us to look for new ideas to stay balanced; we need to develop, and we have to make decisions all the time in the various areas of our lives. For example, we can only be really successful in our work when there’s a balance between work and private life. For example, when you have a very successful job and at home it’s a mass, can you come home and really enjoy the successes of your work? What is the use of money without people around you that you love and that love you to share it with? What is the use of wealth without health?
Wheel of life: Through focused attention your wheel of life can be formed
By defining the things that are really important to you, you can make priorities and give attention to the areas of life that are important to you to grow. So you can form your wheel of life by focused attention, make it more ‘allround’ so you can better go forward and make choices, because you know what you need at this moment. And growth in one area can lead to growth in another area. So you create your own growth and development! Anthony Robbins supports all kinds of people with their personal growth and development and he offers with his “wheel of life” a tool to map efficiently the way your wheel of life is rolling.
Your wheel of life mapped
Without any doubt there are certain areas in your life that are fantastic and like most people there are probably also areas of life that need your attention. Maybe your relationship is great, but your financial situation is oppressive. Or maybe you pay much attention to your work and your bank account florishes, but your health and fitness isn’t too well? Do you want to know how your wheel of life is rolling?
Just pick up a piece of paper and draw a circle with 8 sections. Each section is corresponding to some of the typical areas of your life, for instance: Finances, Relationships, Work, Health, Personal Development, Emotions, Spirituality, Hobby’s, etc. Write these areas on the outside of the sections. Choose the areas that are important to you, it is your wheel of life! Then, taking one area at a time, grade yourself on a scale of 0 to 10. The middle of the circle corresponds to 0 and the outside ring of the circle corresponds to 10. Now you draw a line across the section that represents the number you currently rate yourself at in that section and fill in that part of the section with a colour.
