Force 1: Family

Family can look like many different things based on your upbringing. This could be your biological family, close circle of friends, or others that love and accept you as family. If you have a spouse and/or children, how good is your relationship with them? How are you fulfilling your role and responsibilities in the household? How are you affirming love inside the walls of your home? If you’re single with no children, how connected are you with those you consider family?

Force 2: Professional

Whether you’re an entrepreneur, working professional, or student, this force is about how you make a living. Are you satisfied with your work? Are you able to continue growing your skill set? Is your relationship with your co-workers, supervisor, or associates a positive one or is it caustic? Are you a workaholic, and it’s taking you away from other important areas of your life that are important?

Force 3: Health

Health encompasses several facets including diet, exercise, rest, and mental health. What you put into your body does matter, as does the amount of activity your body gets. What your mind consumes and processes matters as well. How are you taking care of your physical and mental health?

Force 4: Spiritual

Spirituality in this sense spans beyond religion. It’s an important force in your life that shapes your values, humility, purpose, treatment of others, treatment of self, and acknowledges a power beyond what you are personally capable of generating. When you’re not as connected spiritually, how have you noticed that impacting other areas of your life?

Force 5: Personal

The last force is all about you. You have goals and aspirations. You need some “me time” and vacations every now and then. Take some time to develop your hobbies. Are you working towards those things, or are the other forces in life taking up all your time? Another facet of this force is your personal finances and how management of those can impact you in different ways. For example, you could be withdrawn from other areas of your life because of your financial situation (good or bad). Don’t lose yourself because you’re not taking time for yourself.
