You can be BETTER – Part 3

Better Because…You Choose
Many people spend years climbing the corporate ladder in Fortune 100 companies and were fortunate to attend top-rated training and executive leadership programs. After leaving behind their corporate lives, would the same tools used to achieve success in business also worked just as well for life in general?
We have selected 3 core beliefs to share with you.

Previously, we shared that the first belief is : Life is what you think
The second core belief about life is: Life is in Cycles.

The Third core belief about life is:

THIRD. Life’s A Gem.

Most of us get caught in some sort of tunnel-vision. Work, work, work. Or, everything for the kids. Or totally sports.
But in reality, life has many facets. Here are seven that seem to cover everything.
Keep all facets in full perspective all the time, and you’ll see your life as a sparkling gem.

These three core beliefs drive the Better Because movement.

In order to inspire positive change through our individual actions, we try to be conscious of our thoughts, aware of life cycles, and sensitive to the phase we are in at any given time.
You have the ability to choose your actions every day. Whether it’s something as simple as if you will exercise today, or making longer-term life decisions, you’re the one who makes the choices, and takes the action.
Most of us have one facet of our life to pay attention to and work to be more balanced.
What choices will you make today?
What facet of your life do you need to pay more attention to?

Try This: Make 2 columns, one marked “Good Job” and one marked “Area of Focus”. Review the 7 facet of life (Health, Wealth, Work, Play, Service & Others) and decide which column each of them fall under. Decide what you can do today on one of “Area of Focus”to make life a little better.

Make it fun to do…consider how you might feel if you accomplished your small action today and stayed focused on it, until you were satisfied. Go for it!

  1. I’m one of those Corporate ladder climbers who have recently re-evaluated my life.

    I think everything you learn can be applied to various areas of your life depending on your perspective and attitude.

    All of our experiences help account for who we are today. As always, how we use our knowledge and experience is up to us. That’s why I appreciate articles such as this. It helps make us think about things and ensure that we are doing what is best for us.



    • thanks, yes, work is just part of life, but we sure can carry over some of those lessons to other domains of our lives. Hang in there and keep the faith !
