The 3rd piece of the ‘Success Puzzle’

MarkedwardsBelieve me, real success is hard to sustain if you only have 1 or 2 pieces of the ‘Success Puzzle.’

And while I’m sure there are several more aspects of success that you could include if you wanted to, the 3 pillars of success are clear to me…

There’s personal satisfaction and contentment, financial success and stability, and this:

Imagine hitting it big in the stock market as your business is rapidly growing, yet you aren’t happy with yourself or with your personal relationships.

How difficult would it be to keep yourself fueled to perpetuate your financial success when you’re unhappy?

You would likely see your professional drive and performance dwindle as you struggled with 1 piece of the ‘Success Puzzle.’

Now let’s say your business is performing very well and you’re happy with yourself and your personal relationships, but you’ve been neglecting your health.

How difficult would it be to focus on your family or work if health problems were constantly getting in the way? How hard would it be to work from a hospital bed? How could find time for the things you love if you’re home sick all the time?

That’s why I consider the 3 pillars of success to be:

  • Financial or professional success,
  • Personal success with yourself and your relationships, and
  • Success with your health.

Sustaining success with any part of that puzzle missing is nearly impossible.

And while there are certainly circumstances where health issues cannot be avoided, take some time to make sure you’re taking care of yourself and doing everything you can to achieve success with your health.

I urge you to not take this part of the equation lightly. And remember, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
