Living a balanced life

Imagine life as a game in which you are juggling some balls in the air. You name them - work, family, health, friends, and spirit. You will soon recognize that work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back. But the other four balls - family, health, friends and spirit - are made of glass. If you drop one of these, they will be irrevocably broken. (Brian Dawson, Coca Cola Enterprises, at a university commencement address)

Moral of the story : living a balanced life is important. If you are in pursuit of abundant wealth, you have to asked yourself. What good is becoming a wealthy person if it costs you your health, or your family, or your friend ?
