This fragmented approach has lead us to look at our personal and professional well being in a compartmentalized manner rather than as a whole.
Many believing business is business and personal is personal and never the two shall meet. Once upon a time that too was me. Isolating my emotional, spiritual, financial, mental, physical and relational wellness, viewing each as completely unrelated. Not understanding or appreciating the power that lied within the area where they all met.
By separating these aspects of ourselves into individual boxes and giving specific times to attend to each, occasionally or infrequently and rarely considering how each is connected and where we’ve tricked ourselves into believing we are tending to our whole self. When in fact we are simply looking at the Pieces.

But what if you examined how each of these areas affects us personally and professionally, how they affect our behavior, success and fulfillment.
Our physical body, emotion, mind, energy body and soul together form the whole human. It is only by dealing with each part of the whole within the whole, that we can have personal and professional success.
All organs, systems, thoughts, emotions, have their own specific energy or vibration. Therefore what we feel, what we think, what we eat and drink, what we do and do not do, even what we daydream about, has a direct effect on our whole self.
Have you ever stopped to consider how the separateness you create actually undermines your progress, your performance and your ability to be fulfilled personally and professionally?
What if you applied mereology to the six elements in your life and nurtured them into a greater and more whole you?
How you attend to those parts in relation to your whole self impacts you in ways that are great and small.
If the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, why do we as humans keep separate the parts that make us whole?
A person divided against themself cannot succeed.
If the saying goes, we can do more together than separate - then why continue addressing these six elements individually rather than collectively?
What if your whole human came together. What if spiritual you came to play with financial you? What if mental you had some tips for physical you?
In order to feel truly alive and open to all opportunities and be able to receive the success we seek, we must look carefully at our physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, financial and relational health. Identifying our shortcomings and making changes so that we are truly vibrating and performing at the highest level while savoring each precious success.
