We’ve got so many things going on, so many opportunities to choose from, so many shoulds and coulds and oughts and musts.

Do you handle it all like a ringmaster or a clown? A juggler or a dung sweeper?

Finding Balance in the Circus of Life encourages you to:
Take a closer look at your circus and your style of dealing with life.
Recognize your key motivators.
Discover eight secrets from the tightrope walker that will move you toward a balanced life.
Craft a purpose statement that restores sanity and direction to your life. (And lets you say, “No!”)
Practice walking joyfully with God in your own uniqueness.

About the Book

We all perform as part of life’s circus. What circus character are you emulating? Are you the controlling ringmaster, the people-pleasing go-fer or the adventure-seeking lion tamer? Or maybe you’re one of the other six characters many of us imitate.

Learn the five needs that motivate our choices in life and uncover how they play a part in your circus performance. Is it possible you’re in the wrong act as you try to meet these needs?

Allow the secrets of the tightrope walker to provide the way of balance in the circus of life. Discover the decisions and practices that will provide more balance to your days as you learn to live more intentionally. Identify your unique God-given shape that allows you to prioritize and even say, “No.” Learn why rest is a vital part of a balanced life, and how to focus on what matters.

You are a unique person and your life can be lived with joy, purpose and, yes, even balance as you live out the principles that keep the tightrope walker up on the wire.

Here’s what people are saying about the book:

Finding Balance in the Circus of Life was very insightful and life changing for me. It helped me to better understand who I am and what my purpose is. I understand what needs I am trying to meet. The most valuable information I learned from Carol was to live intentionally and focused and not to compare myself to others.” Dede Z., Denver, Pennsylvania

Finding Balance in the Circus of Life helped me to focus on realizing each of us can’t do everything for everyone, and our job is not to please everyone. We should take our life one day at a time. We are all human, God has given us all talents; each one of these talents should be used physically and spiritually.” Jackie F., Columbia, Pennsylvania
