A balance is required

In order to be truly successful at your job and in your life, you must have balance: Integrate giving back with your passions in your professional life. It is critical to have passions that contribute to your happiness, well-being, and who you are as a person.

While our jobs are very important to us, your job cannot be all you have in your life. When your job is all you have, your life becomes a function of somebody else’s day.

If it brings you joy, it should be a part of your daily life.

Whether it’s your family, your significant other, working out at the gym, mountain climbing, going to church, running marathons, or taking cooking classes, you have to have something that you are passionate about that gives you an opportunity to interact with others, feed yourself emotionally and spiritually, or lift someone else up.

The secret is that in giving back, you also multiply your own blessing and your own success. Being yourself and honoring your passions will not only give you personal satisfaction; it will also expand your career. It’s a win-win proposition.
