Good day and I hope you are having a great day.
Today I wanted to share again a mistake I made so you can benefit from my experience. For the past few months I have been really concentrating on getting some internet marketing projects off the ground. This is a very new filed for me and totally out of my comfort zone. In addition to my regular work, I have been taking classes, and seminars and working on setting up websites, and creating products around my book and putting together offers etc. It is very exciting.
This past month, I was faced with numerous setbacks that really derailed my concentration and I totally started to experience the warning signals of my feelings, but kept on ignoring them and tried to get away by  putting a few days of rest and relaxation in and as you read in the last post, I even took some “pity me time”.

I started to feel better but, I was very concerned at the amount of negative energy and by default the amount of negative circumstances that suddenly hit my reality. I could not really come to grip with them because “from my perspective” I had realigned myself and was emanating positive energy.  Well there are times like these that having a loving and in tune spouse is a great blessing.
In no uncertain terms my wife sat me down and told me that I was neglecting my family. As she was illustrating this to me I realized that recently my patience with my two little girls had been really short. I tended to yell at them and put them in time out more than I usually do. I had not gone to Jiu Jitsu or JKD in 4 months, and in general I was just off centered.
Well yesterday I went to my first JKD class in about 4 months. It was like all the toxins was sucked out of my body. I found myself concentrating and visualizing being more patient with my 4 years old daughter. I played with both of my little ones in the playground after work since I was not traveling out of town. In a word  there has been one day when I was starting to get back to myself.
I did not do anything with my personal projects. I have not touched the website or the auto responder. I have not recorded a single minute of video for the product launches I am planning. In fact if this blog was not a form of release and therapy for me I may have taken a few weeks off of writing as well.
I say all that to bring about the point that we all know innately, but in the busy hustle and bustle of daily life we seem to forget. The question of "what is more important"? We all have heard that success is a balance of everything in our life not just the financial aspect. Men specially have a tendency to think that if I work harder and bring home the bacon I am doing the best for my family. That may not be the case if you spend all or a major part of your time working and missing the events of your children or your spouse’s life.  Sometimes an evening out with your spouse, or having a glass of wine (or in my case green tea) together after the kids are gone to sleep has more value than a $1,000 check. It is important to keep the little things in perspective. When it comes to spending TIME, The most important commodity we have, we have to really think about the way we are investing.

How many times have you read that some really rich mogul passed away leaving a fortune to their heirs but the son or daughters utters "I wish I had had my parent come to my soccer game etc."? Don’t let that be you.
It is really easy to get out of balance in this day and age where there is more information exchanged in a second than it would have taken decades only a century ago. The same technology that has enabled us to be more productive, can also take away our most precious commodity from our loved ones.
Truly successful people schedule their non-work time and stick to it. Make sure that you take time for yourself to meditate, to exercise, and also make sure you take time to be with your family. When I say “be” with your family I mean truly be with them. Put the phone aside and be present with them. This is something that I seemed to have forgotten in the last few months and I need to really recheck my priorities because no amount of money or success is worth missing the growing millstones of my little girls or the loving embrace of my beautiful wife.
I hope this post was helpful and if not a warning signal at least a reminder that success and the Law of Attraction are all about balance and not stacking the chips on only one side of the scale.
