For many years, people lived with the mistaken belief that their home life and their work could be totally separate. Many people gave their families and personal lives a back seat to their careers, chasing only the carrot of success while other facets of their lives suffered. It is undeniable that a person's needs and identity encompass more than what he or she does for a living.

We all need to keep our lives in balance. It is important to realize and accept the fact that many needs must be fulfilled if we are to be well adjusted and happy. Our basic needs fall into seven categories:

  • Mental: The functions of your mind--memory, concentration, learning, creativity, reasoning, mathematical ability, etc.
  • Physical: The many functions of your body--overall fitness, percent of body fat, skills and abilities, agility, endurance, etc.
  • Family: Your relationships with the special people you consider part of your family
  • Social: Your relationships with others outside the family and outside your business
  • Spiritual: Your relationship between you and your Creator; also defined as the philosophical and humanitarian areas of your life
  • Career: Your involvement in your chosen field, both on and off the job
  • Financial: The management of your financial resources and obligations

This interactive Workbook covers several influences on one's life that can be positive or negative depending on the individual as well as the introduction of several suggested processes to follow that can lead to both a more successful career and a happier life in general.

Topics covered include:

  • Assumptions and their effect on behavior
  • Positive thinking
  • Brainstorming
  • Seven goal setting action planning sheets
  • Six goal setting rules
  • Visualization skills
  • Choosing and using role models and mentors
  • The thought diet card
