We need balance, because sometimes we think that if we put our nose to the grinding stone with a little bit of elbow grease and work 10 times harder, maybe putting in long hours pushing ourselves over the limit. We think we can reach success.
The problem is that we don’t and realize we are actually draining our energy becoming less productive producing low-quality work, and wearing ourselves out to becoming workaholics.

- Mental energy, having mental energy means that you have the ability to focus entirely on the task at hand. Not being distracted by other issues. You can’t be trying to do one thing, while you have your e-mail box open, a Word document pulled up, the phone ringing next to you, instant messaging, or someone trying to have a conversation with you in the background. You need to remove distractions so that you can focus which will help you to maintain your mental energy
- Spiritual energy, in connection with business means that you are doing something that really has meaning to you if the task you are trying to accomplish as no meaning, then you will not have the burning desire to achieve results.
