When was the last time you took inventory on how you genuinely feel? What isn’t working for you in this season or preventing you from who you say you want to become? It’s time we get to the root of what or who or where your peace is being robbed, and it can often be a result of how you master your personal margin.

Personal margin is the difference between your time and energy that results in peace.

Living in the midst of a pandemic has placed many of us in a negative space when it comes to personal margin simply because we didn’t establish a well-rounded perspective or view of how we could continue to move purposely through the world prior to change. Our routines consisted of bad habits that combined excuses, unused resources, and wasted time. We relied on one person or one activity to bring us peace, when we should have set time aside to do the things that bring us peace first.

What are the excuses you are allowing into your personal space that are contributing to you wasting time and energy and money that could be redirected toward your personal margin?

The six pillars of wealth contribute to how we are impacted by life’s events. When we take the time to focus on our space, faith, fit, work, people, and money pillars – we are able to achieve overall well-being, which we believe is the ultimate form of wealth.

In this episode, I want to share with you three ideas that I believe you can adopt today that will help you master the margin and reach a peace beyond understanding:  

  1. Take Inventory – 07:57
  2. Figure Out Where Resources Are Being Wasted- 16:45
  3. Spread Your Opportunity For Impact.- 25:33

We don’t just want to walk out of life with more experience or more money, we want to have peace as well. It’s time to become the master of your own life.

This episode is brought to you by my new book, Redefine Wealth for Yourself. We have compiled the greatest lessons and exercises that we’ve learned on the Redefining Wealth Podcast to bring you the ultimate guide to redefine wealth for yourself.
