We all want to live the best and happiest lives that we can and there are a large variety of articles available on how we can do that. In spite of all the information that is available to us and despite our various efforts to try to take a variety of actions to improve the quality of our lives through exercise, health foods and relaxation techniques, many of us still suffer from anxiety and depression and are still taking medications and other substances to help us cope with our lives.
Achieving Personal Success
What is an important key to achieving personal success? Before this question can be answered, we must define what we mean by personal success. Many of us equate personal success with power and financial success, and indeed we must have enough self-esteem and enough financial security in our lives to feel confident that we are meeting our necessary responsibilities, but in my definition of personal success we must view our lives in all of its varied aspects. That means attention must be paid not only to our work and our careers, but also to our personal needs–health, recreation, personal relationships and growth. In today’s fast paced environment, this takes a special commitment to dedicate ourselves to planning and balance.
