You have more "natural energy" when you are complete. Being complete is
fundamental to building and sustaining your personal effectiveness. It is possible to be
complete in all aspects of your life--environment, well-being, finances and relationships.
Incomplete is being unresolved. It drains you of qualities that contribute to performing
at your best. Peak performer characteristics are strained to varying degrees when you are
incomplete, including: peace of mind, energy, vitality, inner strength, self-command and
sense of wholeness.
You can be finished or over something, like a relationship, yet still be incomplete. It is "still on your mind" and, therefore, it limits your personal and professional
You know--that remark your spouse, close friend, partner or colleague said. You laughed it
off, or left the house or office, rather than say what was really on your mind and in your
heart. One of two days pass and you are still replaying what was said and what you wish
you had said. Eventually, you rationalize it's not that important, it doesn't matter, any
way. Than you tell yourself it's over and "stuff" your words and feelings deep
inside. But life is funny. That situation or something like it continues to be repeated
with that person or someone else until you get complete.

- Be and fully express yourself, as you are today. No drama. No proving. No excuses.
- Clearly focus on priorities. You can set goals and attain them almost effortlessly. You
are in the flow.
It's Your Time
Now it's your time to be complete. Make a list of at least 10 things and/or people you are
incomplete with in each of the following areas of your life.
- Environment--such as office, home, car , boat;
- Well-being--such as weight, hair, teeth, having something enjoyable to do each evening;
- Finances--such as currently saving at least six months' living expenses, on financial
independence track; and
- Relationships--such as spouse, parents, colleagues, clients, staff.
Start working down these lists and start doing complete work with your current tasks,
actions and conversations. Life is too short to let anything or anyone hold you back from
being all of who you really are.
