Episode 35

Finding True Balance 

We often talk about balance as in work life balance, or down time, or time for me, time for the kids, time for the partner, time for work – and it feels like something that we have to strive for to attain, and that it is always going to be slightly out of reach or unattainable. Because there are so many aspects of that which we can’t control, especially now as we find ourselves in a global pandemic, without our usual routines, working from home, home schooling, constantly surrounded by people and responsibilities, distractions and interruptions. How do we manage ourselves well through this time when it doesn’t appear that there is any balance at all?
If we can start to think about balance as simply our relationship with ourselves – with our inner world, or our inner self, and then the corresponding action that we take in the outer, or physical world – then it becomes a lot more simple to understand and to allow ourselves to find balance. Finding true balance is 100% within our control at any time, and the balance we need to be focusing on is not in the external world, but finding connecting with our inner world and allowing that to become manifested as our outer world.
When we focus on our inner world first, this will build a bridge almost if you like between the inner and the outer, and guide our actions in the external world, which will help create balance within our lives.
Step 1 is to focus on the inner self
Step 2 is to pause and connect yourself to the outer world – to create your plan
Step 3 is to then take the action

My Mission

Fiona Redding

Fiona Redding


My mission in life is to share everything I have learned – and am continuing to learn – about turning my own life around and to really help you understand that happiness is to be found in the overcoming of obstacles and challenges in your life, and not in the absence of them. 

To achieve your potential in life, you need to become your potential.  And for that to be, you need to understand yourself, and learn how to harness your strengths and overcome your weaknesses.  

You have the power within you to create whatever reality you choose, and I am here to help you know that if you don’t like what you are experiencing, then you can absolutely change that.  

But you do have to choose, believe, and be open to all possibilities, and to keep showing up every day, even when it feels really hard.

Because if you do what is easy, your life will be hard.  But if you do what is hard, your life will be easy.
