The four main areas of life that you must incorporate into your life to achieve maximum success and satisfaction
There are universal laws that govern our world, regardless of what we think of them and our (dis) faith in them. The easiest that everyone can identify with is the Law of Gravity, simply stating that “what goes up, must come down.” Another is the First Law of Thermodynamics, which states that energy can be transformed, but it can never be destroyed or created. A third that is quite common is the Second Law of Thermodynamics (also known as the Law of Energy Decay), which states that ultimately everything that is created will deteriorate; to pass from a state of order to a state of disorder.
In the words of Wallace Wattles (The Science of Getting Rich): “You can act according to these laws, or you can ignore them, but you cannot change them in any way. The laws operate forever and hold you strictly accountable, and there is no the slightest concession for ignorance … Once a person learns and obeys these laws, he will become rich with mathematical certainty. “
All these laws fall under the one general law: “Energy is.” Ultimately, we are all particles of energy, more specifically light.
In a way, this makes life quite easy to understand. As long as we recognize the existence of these laws and do not work against them, life unfolds naturally. I have written about most natural laws in other articles.
The four main areas of our life are also under the influence of these laws. These areas are:
You can compare these areas of life as four interconnected circles that ultimately all overlap in the middle. A balanced life, a life where “you can have it all”, meets exactly in the middle, where mental, emotional, physical and spiritual practice come together.
There is a twofold approach to his personal and professional life: first, there is the generalized influence of natural laws on his decisions and movements; being the Law of Attraction the most important Law to take into account. In addition to these Laws, there are four areas of life that you should be aware of.
I know this may seem complicated; just know that you are already living by these “rules”, and are probably already deliberately using them, without even knowing that you are.
This overview is not intended to explain or work through the operation of the Universal Laws. The purpose here is to show you that your values and actions are ideally distributed in each of the four main areas of life, in order to live a successful and balanced personal and professional life. That’s a pleonasm, in my opinion, since a successful life IS a balanced life!
Obviously, there are more areas in life to focus on, but the four mentioned summarize the basic basics. Everything we do in life has 1) a purpose, the spiritual, 2) a reason, the mental, 3) a feeling attached to it, the emotional, and requires (not) action, the physical.
Most of the time, people focus on one or two of the areas, thus neglecting the other areas of life. For example, a person focused on business success may focus intensely on the mental and physical – coming up with a solid plan and putting it into action. That it COULD keep this person out of touch with the purpose (spirituality, ethics) and the emotional consequences of this (without regard for himself or others). Another example: someone can gladly focus on spiritual and emotional growth. That can leave them oblivious to “common sense” (mental) and physical health. Both examples may appear to be successful in the areas you focus on, but there will be a price to pay in the underserved areas.
To live a balanced and full (and therefore effective) life, try to integrate all four areas into YOUR life.
- Spiritual – focus primarily on reason, the purpose of your intention. WHY are you contemplating what you are contemplating? What value will it serve? What is the highest reasoning behind all this? If you can find a positive intention / purpose behind everything you do, you will have infinite motivation to get the result. Nobody needs to motivate me to write articles. I WANT to do it, because it is in line with my purpose: to inspire people towards a more fulfilling and happy future.
- Mental: spend a lot of time planning your intention. WHAT you want to achieve that is in line with your purpose. Make an action plan. Consider the pros and cons, cause and effect relationships. Talk it over to people, do your research, eliminate or minimize risk, maximize profit. Etc etc. Use your (left) brain to figure things out ahead of time.
- Emotional: what is the feeling you are looking for? What emotional state are you looking for? What is the reward for your intention? How would you like to feel after your plans have been put into action? Think and FEEL the state you want to reach beforehand as well; This will ignite powerful forces that will help you achieve the desired feeling.
- Physicist: What is the plan? HOW are you going to do things? What resources will you use, what term will you stick to? What are you starting at first? How much energy does it take? How long to recover? How will your body cope? Can you control it? Do you need to toughen up or get fit? What are the three-dimensional physical requirements and what is step 1?
If you can constantly keep an eye on all four elements, you will be able to achieve whatever it is you have planned. It will also serve as an accountability outline and alert you with “dash lights on” when an item receives too much or too little attention. You will notice it!
Both my personal and professional life began to spiral upward once I concentrated on keeping all four plates in the air, rather than primarily leaning towards one or two of them. The power of a balanced life and perspective is greater than you can probably imagine.
The proof of the pudding will be in eating!
