MAKE TIME FOR WHAT MATTERS THE MOST
Does Working all the Time Meet Your Needs?
There is always a price to be paid for the path that we choose in life. In striving to achieve financial success other areas can be impacted as a result. Our quality of life isn’t about what we have; our quality of life is about living in balance. We are happy when our work has purpose and we have people around us we love – and who love us. Life can’t simply be about play . . . it lacks purpose. Life can’t be solely about work it then lacks love.
Going to any extreme in the quest to achieve a goal, more than likely will cause problems in other areas of life. Generally speaking high achieving entrepreneurs and professionals experience dissatisfaction in their personal relationships.
Are you constantly Stretching to Solve Relationship Problems? If you are finding yourself continually striving to solve problems in your personal relationships, your perceptions on work could be a significant contributing factor. When a person is constantly in the work mode they are attempting to get their human needs met. Unfortunately, extreme behaviors are counter-productive in cultivating happiness in personal relationships. The result is they remain in a constant state of flux to solve the problem.
Does having relationship problems meet a need? If relationship problems have been around for a long time it could be filling a need for certainty becoming comfortable. Sound odd? The human need to have certainty in life can be the driver of self-sabotaging behaviors.
Does having uncertainty about a relationship create new obstacles? We need a certain amount of uncertainty in life. This gives us variety and can be very energizing to live a fulfilling life. There might be dysfunctional perceptions about the need for variety that are creating obstacles in balancing relationships and work.
Do you feel like personal relationship issues have started to define who you are? There are many dramedies on TV that depict the overachiever as constantly having problems getting satisfaction in their personal relationships. This person seems to be stuck in the state of discontent and the character is defined that way. As a viewer we expect them to have those behaviors.
Does having the lack of satisfaction in personal relationships force you to have sympathy for yourself? Observe your-self talk. What are the conversations that you have with yourself? Do you find yourself making statements like; I don’t make friends easily, or that person just doesn’t understand me, or I don’t have close relationships because….
The need to perceive significance about yourself can be manifested in self-pity about relationships keeping you struck in a pattern of imbalance. This is why the problem is still around.
If you have answered yes more than once to any of these questions, then your problem is meeting your needs.
