I like to think for the most part that I run my life. Balance is definitely critical in that - and it has to be a healthy balance between taking care of ourselves, our families/friends, and our business. I'm usually relatively balanced. :-)

I used to be run by my life and people around me, but with years it is obvious to me that everything that comes to me is a consequence of my previous action or thought.

Most of it comes to a choice you have made at some moment.

Be honest and take a responsibility for what happens.
