Balance Is Key
Balance is necessary for not only success, but for everyday life. Balance is required for you to not only maintain a certain level, but in order to elevate there needs to be balance.
If you focus too much on one thing you will fall. Don't overwork yourself, and don't goof off. Try to prioritize not only what you need in life, but what you want for yourself. If you focus too much on the needs, you will feel like you aren't enjoying yourself. And visa versa, if you focus to much on what you want, not only will your feel unaccomplished, but you'll never feel like you have enough.
Always remember, however, need should come before want. Because the thing about wants are that the don't ever expire. There will always be new clothes, road trips, parties, and eating out. Needs, however, usually need to be met at a certain time. Bills need to be paid at the beginning of the month, or you will be homeless, cars need gas or they WILL NOT turn on, (trust me I know), papers need to be due, and businesses need to be built. Don't ever trick yourself into thinking that you NEED a WANT. They are mutually exclusive. So, in the words of DJ Khaled,
Always strive to be the best you can be, not for anyone else, but for YOU. Don't fall for anyone, stay on your block, and stay elevated.
