The Equilibrium in Enough: Finding the Balance when Striving for Success

Reading Time: 4 minutes

equilibrium enough behind the schmile balance motivation inspiration

This is for the 20-something-year-old who thinks they are having a quarter life crisis. This is for the person who thinks they should have their life figured out but can’t decide which socks to wear. This is for anyone who is struggling to find a balance in life whilst striving for success.

A word of encouragement to start you off: you aren’t as lazy as you think!

You’re probably just mentally debilitated.

Have your juices run out and left you crippled? Working hard and making achievements but still feeling as though it isn’t enough? No longer ‘hungry’ enough to keep striving on?

As a quarter-life crisis coping mechanism, you’ve probably tried to convince yourself that it’s okay to be mediocre. There is only one Beyoncé. Not everyone can win and this is not worth losing sleep over. The only positive of such a discouraging mind-set is that you have probably relieved yourself of a lot of pressure! It’s probably a lot easier to simply get on with life when you stop setting the bar ‘too high’. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with being content with your current state in life- but are you content?

For many, part of this frustration stems from a temporary inability to identify their purpose in life. I get it. I’ve been there too. It can seem absolutely pointless to put so much time and effort into something you’re unsure about.

The Reality

But as I matured (just a lil bit), I grew in appreciation of the fact that God is, was and always has been in control. The only justification and confirmation I need is found in Him. Even if the path I am on isn’t the final one, it’s a season with a reason. Life’s lessons are limitless (Limitless Life Lessons); reap from your current situation and be reminded that nothing lasts forever.

Ultimately, if you’re willing to settle for mediocrity, you’re volunteering to be a basic bitch. If that’s what you want then, by all means, stop reading now because I have no further words for you.

“So you’re a basic bitch?”

These aren’t words you should profess onto your life; the power of the tongue is NOT to be toyed with. If you perceive yourself as mediocre, you project yourself as mediocre to the world- you only emit what you absorb.

So okay, you’ve accepted all of this but you’re still in your quarter life crisis. You feel as if you’ve already done everything that is physically possible to get to where you want to be. So, what next?

This is where that balance when striving for success comes in. If you wholeheartedly believe that you have done the most and done your best, sit back, relax and wait. Our generation is so obsessed with seeming busy and ‘making movements’, we forget to let our efforts speak for themselves. The problem probably isn’t even that you aren’t getting anywhere or making progress- you probably just haven’t taken a long enough break to admire the results.

Work. Struggle. Achieve. Repeat.

We fall into this cycle where we never reap the benefits of our hard work. I even believed that I wasn’t allowed to enjoy benefits until I had the big final result. But you have to appreciate the small rewards too. It’s these small rewards that kept me going- that showed me the beauty in my struggle and reignited my desire.

Strive towards finding a balance rather than just success. I’m no longer a slave to the belief that I need to suffer in order to succeed. The struggle can be real, but it shouldn’t be forever. Enjoy what you can today because you can’t live life in wait for the big rewards that might never come, and that way if they do come, you’ll already know how to make the most of them.

We’re all still learning and growing so be easy on yourself. Part of growing into an adult is understanding how humans function best: working at your natural frequency and maintaining resonance. Some people are wired up to work like machines and if this is where you feel most comfortable, by all means, continue. But even computers need to shut down and update every so often.

The equilibrium in enough: a state of balance between motivation to work hard towards goals and the appreciation of past/current efforts.

This balance doesn’t have to be 50-50; it should be whatever works for you.

Have you found your equilibrium?

    The key to “equilibrium” starts with staying in your lane, prefect what your good at. While you’re doing that, don’t compare yourself to anyone else. Along the way celebrate your small wins. The small wins are the stepping stones to your goals. If you can do that, you’ll avoid burnout.

    Your posts are always so thought provoking. In reality, many people don’t “make it” until their 30’s. I’ve often seen posts about our peers feeling in a rush to land careers, be married, have children, etc but in my opinion I see nothing wrong with waiting. This is a blessing in disguise because I feel like often older generations may have completed all the above by age 25 but it didn’t always mean they were genuinely satisfied with the results and it was the status quo. For us, everything is changing and I see it as a great thing. Like you, I am also trusting the Most High with my plan!

    I have no idea how you always seem to read my mind. Especially the “finding the purpose” part- such a hard and scary thing to figure out. I am still squarely in the “work super hard but take breaks” phase; while I feel very happy with my career , I aspire to more. While I am grateful for my blog, I aspire to MUCH MUCH more for it. So I pray, gather inspiration, execute, observe results, celebrate small successes and repeat. Hard work is never lost, and #nobasicbitches over here so I’m hustling hard. Amazing post as always!!!

    Great post. From graduating college to being in a relationship, I remember in my mid-twenties I thought I should have it all together and I was very depressed about it. When the pieces started coming together I realized whatever is for you will happen at the right time. When you learn to let go of what is “supposed to happen” and actually let it flow, you tend to be happier too.

    • TishaKimiira

  14. October 30, 2017 / 1:47 pm

    Aaah I wish I could do it the way you do…
    I was educated to always aim for maximum achievement and if you’re not #1 at everything you’re not good enough ( the perks of attending a strict private school from 4 to 10 years old 🙁 )

    Been struggling to reboot my way of thinking for 2 years now, and this is how I improved: finding equilibrium in the process.

    Really enjoyed reading your post!
    Gonna go through the rest of your blog now 😉

    So good. I always feel like I am playing catch up! It seems like it is all work and no play – and eventually I don’t want to have fun because I feel guilty for not finishing all the work… the work that I am too tired to do… because I need to have some fun! I need to bookmark this post as a reminder of how to do this thing right.

    • TishaKimiira
      October 30, 2017 / 4:54 pm

      Sometimes it feels like I’m catching up on catching up so I can definitely relate! Learning to brush off the quilt has been a challenge but I’m getting there slowly! I’ve learnt to stop apologising for it, especially when I know that I’m trying my best! I hope this helps- all the best to you! & thank you so much for reading! 🙂 x

    I think most need to remind themselves that we should be striving for something that makes us happy rather than competing with others because that’s a race we’ll never win (and not to mention never-ending). Focusing on growing as a person should always be the most important!

    • TishaKimiira
      October 31, 2017 / 9:59 am

    I love, love, love reading your posts , always get me to think. I’ve had a quarter life crisis but I realized everyone’s path is different and it’s ok to slay in your own lane. The race is not for the swift. All I have to do is take it one day at a time. Nothing happens before it’s time.

    “Work. Struggle. Achieve. Repeat,” really is the order that life takes; especially, when you’re an entrepreneur. Although I haven’t achieved all of the success I would to achieve, I am content that within time if I remain consistent greater success will come.

    The best way to find the equilibrium is to keep on doing sustained efforts and striver for the very best. But also accept the fact that all factors are not in your control, what you can control is your own efforts, so put your heart and soul into it.

      Thank you very much for this- common sense but often forgotten that all matters are not in our control- we can only do our best! 🙂

    Interesting. I also think that what we “think” is what we “attract”. So – the energy around us drives our success but we shape the outcome.

      This is an interesting perspective! I agree in some cases and disagree with others lol- but our thoughts definitely have a large impact on our circumstances and our view on things. Thank you for reading! 🙂

    Ah, balance. Saying it is easy, finding it takes a lot of mindfulness. I think we get so caught up in the “busy-ness” of life that we forget to nurture ourselves. That’s how I find balance: nurturing my own soul so that I can freely give to everyone else’s. Great post.

      A LOT of mindfulness!!! I love this idea of nurturing one’s self in order to give to others- thank you for sharing! 🙂

  56. November 1, 2017 / 10:12 pm

    Balance is something that we definitely need in our lives. It’s too easy to get caught up and overdo it in one area or another but that will eventually lead to stress and even health issues!

      I agree! We don’t realise how many physical health issues are linked to our mental health. Thank you for reading! 🙂 x

    This was so encouraging. Sometimes I think that I am so lazy for not getting things done, but also I know I am very hard on myself as I am already doing more than most people that I personally know in my life. Sometimes I just wish there were more hours in the day so I could get more done and actually sleep. But as you said, God has always been
    and still is in control. Thanks for this encouragement!

    What an amazing and thought provoking post. I like that everyone has their own pace and also the rate to measure the parameters like success, hardwork. So it is great to keep doing the work at one’s own pace instead of pushing oneself and comparing with others.

    I can agree with the statement that God is in Control. I’m reminded everyday when i have a plan for my life and it doesn’t go as planned, I remember oh yes God is in control.

      Haha it happens to the best of this, you think everything is going wrong and have to remind yourself that God has it worked out! Thanks for reading 🙂

    Those who ignore balance usually find themselves in a not so ideal situation. Balance is necessary

    I needed this today. I often find myself in the work-struggle-achieve cycle, without giving myself the appropriate opportunity to celebrate my accomplishments. Definitely something to work on!

    There’s so much truth in this. We’re all on our own waves and comparison is the thief of joy. Sometimes you have to recognise the wins you might be tempted to write off as insignificant to keep progressing and thriving

    “You only emit what you absorb.” Yes to this! Speaking positivity will bring positivity. Your life is defined by your mindset. If you believe positive things are going to happen to you then they have no other choice but to come to you. When adversities emerge they are defined by how you react to them. So keeping a positive mindset is the key to life. 🔑🔑🔑

    “Our generation is so obsessed with seeming busy and ‘making movements’, we forget to let our efforts speak for themselves.”

    Well yeah, that’s one amazing line you wrote. In fact, I was one of this generation. Was. I often felt that I should take a break, appreciate my blessings and enjoyment while give my effort and struggle a chance to process. I was right. Heck, everyone could use a little break once in a while.

    I love this. Initially when I started my journey, I was blind to my progress as I was only noticing the setbacks and struggling to work even harder than I already was but lately I make out time to just notice the little achievements and give myself a pat in the back once in a while. Thank you for sharing this!

    Where was this blog when I was in my 20’s? This was spot on. I think letting go and letting God is huge as you stated. Its so hard when you’re driven and want to accomplish many goals but waiting/trusting on Him must come first. Great read!
