In both finance and health, the key to success is maintaining balance. Without proper balance, the quality of life will suffer. One of the most important aspects of personal finance is cash flow.
Cash flow is determined by the relationship between money coming in and money going out. The money that leaves your hand is entirely under your control – you can choose to pay your bills or not, but the decision is yours. On the other hand, the money that comes into your hand is controlled by others -all you have is influence.
How to Fix a Cash Flow Problem
When cash flow is out of balance, people tend to focus on earning more money, rather than reducing their spending. And this is where the fatal mistake is made, focusing on the wrong thing. The key to improving cash flow is to focus on the things that are under your control, rather than those that you can only influence.
Cash Flow and Health Flow
The same principles apply to health. Health is determined by the balance between what you put into and do to your body, signals. And how your body responds to it, response. Just like with cash flow, what you put into and do to your body, the signals you give it, is under your control. How your body responds is not.
With any type of health intervention, including medical, a signal is provided to the body – nutrition, exercise, medicine, even surgery are all signals intended to trigger a response. You create the signal and then you see how your body responds.
Focusing on the Right Thing
When health is out of balance, people will focus on the outcome they want. Lose weight etc. They focus on the thing they are influencing. The key to improving health is to focus on the things that are under your control, such as what you eat and how much you exercise. How your body responds will tell you when you get the signal right.
Success in Finance and Health
Both finance and health require a focus on the things that are under our control, rather than the things we can only influence. Improving your health and finances both begin with this mindset, and by making the choices that are best for you. By focusing on the things we can control, we can create a balanced, healthy, and financially secure life.
