Masters Winner shows meaning of Life Balance
As I was reviewing all the articles and information concerning the recent Masters Golf Match, it became quite evident that Phil Mickelson understands the meaning of life balance. As I was musing over the different paths taken by the sports writers, I realized that Phil Mickelson has been very consistent in his life regarding the balance between family and work.
The emotion of the moment, when Phil hugged his wife Amy as he walked off the eighteenth green on Sunday was a reminder of all things good about life. Later at the press conference, he stated, “We didn’t have to say anything, we just shared the moment.” That sums up what a great relationship is all about.
Knowing that your partner cares about you as much as you care about them really puts meaning in life balance. As much as we – leaders in our companies – get caught up in the power of self ego, we must remember that balance is the real goal.
In fact, when I was studying about personal performance, relationships continue to come into the picture with each source I studied. Interesting enough, one point rang home as a missing link for most people I have met and coached. The ability to allow yourself to become vulnerable with another person. This was interesting since I had been taught by several people to always be strong and never show vulnerability.
Yet, the truth is becoming vulnerable is the only way to let others into your heart – to be totally loving with another human being. Life balance is something that is important to every human being and especially the leaders of our organizations. Life balance allows for the spirit of life to recharge and energize through all things that life throws in your direction.
Think about the difficulty within a loving relationship when a life threatening disease enters the life of a loved one or even yourself. It takes another level of energy, belief in wellness and plenty of love to endure the effects of such a negative force. Learn from the actions of a great athlete who has his priorities in the correct order – family, then work.
