Ziglar’s Wheel of Life. Be true as you look at each life spoke, and set a ‘X’ in each area where you sense it fits at this moment. Then note down ‘why’ you noted your ‘X’ precisely where you noted it — not lower or higher on the scale. As you have filled out the circle connect your X’s. The idea is that a sustainable healthy balance in your life is a round wheel. Lacking attention or nourishment in one or more area will consequently hinder your wheel from turning well-oiled, and that in relation to all and everything in this world that you are interconnected to! It is therefore, on a daily basis, each of us have a responsibility, to aim for balance, and set reasonable goals. That means specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, and true goals.
