“Life is like juggling five balls in the air.

“Life is like juggling five balls in the air.




They are Health, family, friends, and integrity, and career/ achievement. These balls are not the same: the important thing to remember that the career ball is made of rubber but the others are more fragile. 

You can take more risks with the rubber ball, you may take more risks with this ball as if you drop it will eventually bounce back.

Normally this ball does not suffer long – term damage. The other four balls need to be looked after more carefully.

If you drop one of these it will be damaged and may even shatter.

So long as we have our Health, family, friends and integrity we can overcome life’s hurdles.”
