Between confidence and arrogance
Between flexibility and indecisiveness
Between humility and self-deprecation
Between self-respect and self-pity
Between candor and harmful criticism
Between compromise and cooperation
Between communicating and talking
Between helping and interfering
Between faith and fantasy
Between love and co-dependency
I could go on. The point is this: our happiness, success, productivity, and relationships depend on the fine line between these character traits.
The trajectory of our careers and personal lives is a function of how we think and how often we think about these distinctions in our daily interactions.
Life will always be a balancing act. But over time, personal reflection, meditation, prayer, reading, and listening to mentors will reveal the fine line to us.
Chose the fast lane that speeds past these practices at your own risk.
