Leading a balanced life is hard. Every day, we have so many things competing for our attention: kids, spouses, parents, work, school, household duties, and on and on it goes. How is one supposed to find balance in all of this chaos?

I’ll let you in on a secret: you can’t. The secret to life isn’t balanced at all, because that’s impossible to find.

The secret lies in finding alignment instead.

Finding balance in your life is a myth; it is humanly impossible to divide your energy and efforts equally between every aspect of your life. Some areas will require more attention than others; other areas can be left dormant for a while as you focus your energy elsewhere. What’s important is to schedule in time to work on what fuels you and what’s necessary to keep you going.

But how can you do that? And what on earth does alignment have to do with getting through each day with some measure of success and sanity?

I’ve come up with the six assets of alignment that have become my guiding stars. They are the things that help me prioritize my day-to-day tasks and ensure that I will emerge from each day successful, invigorated, and ready to do it all again the next day…and all the days after that.

Are you ready to unlock all that aligning your life has to offer? Let’s chat a bit about my six assets alignment so you can start thinking about how they can help you find the success you dream of.

Mindset

How many times do you look at your to-do list every morning and feel overwhelmed, discouraged, stressed, or anxious? The key to remedying this lies within your mindset. The thing that will set you apart from the crowd is knowing how to harness those emotions and flip them on their head to serve you instead of enslaving you.

Instead of considering all you have to do, and how much of it is out of your control, focus on that which you can control: your attitude and your response to each task before you. Take everything one step at a time and refuse to give in to the feeling of overwhelming.

Faith

Not everyone is a person of faith, but if you are, tap into the reassurance that the belief in a power greater than you provide. None of us is meant to walk this earth alone, and while friends and family are great, sometimes you just need to say a little prayer before going about your day.

Family

The memorable moments I share with my family have kept me going through even the darkest, most stressful times. But I wouldn’t have those memories to fall back on if I had allowed my stress, busyness or anxiety to steal that joy. Prioritize sharing life with the people you love, and pour intentional time and effort into your relationships on a regular basis – whether that’s with your family, spouse, roommates or close friends.

On the flip side, not all of us have good families. In that case, it’s equally important to recognize when your family is messing with your alignment and to set boundaries to prevent them from interfering with the life and success you’re trying to build. There is more to family than blood; seeking out support in whatever way you can is what counts.

Fitness

You deserve to look and feel your best every day. In fact, I’d go so far as to say that you will feel the opposite of aligned if you’re not taking time every day to invest in your own physical fitness and care. By choosing to eat healthy, exercise, and actually keep your doctor’s appointments, you’re investing in your long-term success and your short term comfort. The cliche “if you don’t have your health, you don’t have anything” is true for a reason!

Finances

Speaking of sayings, one of my favourites is “He who can be trusted with little will be trusted with much.” If you practice smart money management every day, you’ll be surprised at how quickly you’ll be rewarded with more money to manage. I’m not saying hoard all your money like a Scrooge or spend willy-nilly; make smart investments, set aside money so you can rest comfortably knowing you’ll be taken care of in the event emergency strikes, and enjoy the benefits of your hard work. Everything in moderation.

Network

The people you surround yourself with play a vital role in your success. Intentionally fill your life with people of substance and reject the advancements of toxic people who want to steal your joy and interrupt your rhythm. Working, playing, and living alongside people who have your best interests at heart and want you to succeed ensures that everyone involved in the relationship lives a life well-aligned with their goals.

By following these six assets of alignment, you’ll be able to clearly see where to apply more resources, and understand how best to take back your time and care for yourself and the people around you. Take back your time, be intentional with how you spend it and watch how quickly you’ll reap the rewards.

Published

on

As per the World Trade Organization, Mexico is the 13th biggest exporter of goods and 12th biggest importer of goods globally. A sign of the amazing nature of the manufacturing industry in Mexico is the growth of the industrial labor force that has occurred during 2019. As per the National Institute of Geography and Statistics, the number of Mexicans hired in the industry was 2.5% more than previous years. Economists suggest that the manufacturing in Mexico depends on three major factors:

Manufacturing is diverse

Manufacturing industrial base is broad. Producers of the nation include small companies to big conglomerates such as top-notch pharmaceutical companies, world-class aerospace manufacturers and automotive assemblers and many more.

Also, the manufacturing industry in Mexico supplies domestic input to enhance its products. For instance, Mexico has homegrown cotton to support its textile companies, aluminum supply for its automotive industry usage, polyethylene for its plastic sector and sugar for companies that produce food and beverage products. Irrespective of the fact that use of domestic items is on rise, Mexico still has a long way to go to become self-sufficient and acquire control on its manufacturing processes.

Manufacturing in Mexico uses modern data technology

The launch of new technology is usually a troublesome element in the production sector. The launch of Industry 4.0 into major developed nations has created a lot of challenges for Mexico too.

The Industry 4.0 has made a lot of technologies which can be used in the manufacturing industry such as Internet of Things, Cloud Computing, Artificial Intelligence, Additive Manufacturing, Augmented Reality and more. Data intelligence is of great importance as it permits producers to get precise information pertaining to almost connection in the manufacturing chain to get operational intelligence.

Kimball Electronics in the Guanajuato region is a great example to enter the dominion of industry 4.0. It produces circuit boards and electronic parts and it has started testing data infrastructure on a real-time basis by using OSIsoft technologies to analyze failures and errors.

Using this tool in the manufacturing in Mexico has saved the company a lot of money and time and paved the way to use it at its other locations worldwide. More and more industries in Mexico are adopting new technologies. This is a major and necessary step for the companies that find it difficult to convert large data flows into essential, comprehensive, real-time information.

Manufacturing makes use of highly skilled human capital

INEGI stated that during April 2019, the value of Mexican exported merchandise was calculated $US 39 billion in products. This suggests the gigantic value of products produced by the expert Mexican labor force.

In order to meet the demand created by the Industry 4.0 technologies, it is essential for the nation to create better links between training, education, industry and government. The strength of this bond will enhance better knowledge and strengthen the growth of new businesses in the nation.

Manufacturing in Mexico is in its development phase. It has benefits of diversity, data technology and human resources to take its economy to another level of development.
