What about business-personal balance?


This week’s question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions
for Life”
comes from Marna.

Neagle                                               Code Question

David, I am really struggling to find some kind of balance between business and personal. I’m building my business and my boyfriend keeps telling me that I’m working too hard. He’s constantly asking me to quit working and pay attention to him.

I’m really torn between doing everything I can to build a successful business and doing everything to build a successful relationship. Is there a balance, and if there is, how can I find it?


Neagle                                               Code Answer

Thank you for asking this important question. Finding balance can often feel like a high-wire act! Personal relationships can impact your business and vice versa, especially if a relationship is not founded on complimentary or mutually shared values.

It sounds like you and your boyfriend don’t value the same things. This in turn can create a conflict rather than a balance issue.

When someone is asking you to deny your desire to grow (so they can be happy) and to choose between them or your business, ask yourself the following questions:

Why have I attracted this?

What is this here to teach me?

What are the emotions and thoughts that are coming up around this for me?

The truth is, love means total acceptance, and if your boyfriend is not totally accepting of your desires, it may be toxic.

You’re feeling out-of-balance because you are feeling torn to choose and you shouldn’t have to choose.

When you align yourself with values that show you how you can, instead of the all reasons for why you can’t, you will continue on your fast track to growth, and nothing will stop you.
