Publisher's Summary

Read by the author with audio-exclusive reflections.

Imagine learning to tap into the awareness, sensitivity, and highest thought patterns that enable the most successful outcomes in life, love, and business. What would your life look like if you were able to break the patterns of inconsistency that keep you from your absolute best? Could it be possible to identify and regularly access the highest version of yourself, leaving behind past hit-or-miss cycles and instead starting to win in every key area of your life?

These goals are not only possible—they are what you were made for!

In Balance, bestselling author Touré Roberts guides us on the eye-opening journey that unpacks the divine formula that makes this a reality.

This illuminating guide brings a unique and eye-opening perspective to the evasive concept of balance. Transcending familiar theories of work-life balance, Roberts teaches that balance is a state of existence, a becoming that, when realized, not only brings forth the highest version of an individual but optimizes their life's output, productivity, relational value, and overall achievement.

As he unpacks balance with stunning relatability, Roberts connects with people on every level. His easy-to-grasp style of teaching and unabashed vulnerability illuminate and clarify how living in balance is the longing in each human heart. Roberts shares life-changing personal stories and the principles they inspired while discovering balance in his own life. As an author, speaker, entrepreneur, CEO, and lead pastor of two large congregations in the United States—not to mention a devoted husband and dedicated father of six—Roberts knows that merely juggling responsibilities is not the answer.

Balance departs from traditional techniques of time management and better organization to get to the core issues at stake. Roberts reveals that the path to true balance prioritizes self and discovers the unique, deep internal needs of the individual first. "Identifying your deepest needs not only is life-transforming but brings forth your greatest self, pouring an overflow of your best and highest abilities into the lives of everyone around you," Roberts explains. "Balance is not about learning to effectively give pieces of yourself to important parts of your life. Balance is about knowing and becoming your entire self—and then giving from your wholeness to everyone and everything within the context of your life."

Key chapters include The Power of No, which unpacks why "no" is the most powerful word in your vocabulary; There's No Team in I, a liberating and paradigm-shifting exploration of the difference between being selfish and the transformational quality of a term Roberts coins as being "self-ful"; The 5 Signs of Imbalance, which will help you quickly identify the imbalances in your life and effectively respond before crisis hits; and Balance after The Blow, a step-by-step guide to get you back on your feet after experiencing an unexpected setback. You'll walk away from each illuminating chapter with powerful principles, tools, and prompts for self-evaluation.

A personal navigation guide like no other, Balance charts your path to productivity, peace, positivity, purpose, and unlimited possibilities.

Top 5

This will be qmong my top 5 book picks. Read along while listening and loved the post chapter reflections. Balance is definitely a place and when we embrace the peace that is already "here", we can maintain and walk in balance.

Who knew balance was so vital?

I'm reviewing before I listen again. This book made me feel excited to be alive. So much sense, narrated in the author's wonderful tone. After I've listened again, I'm going to search for more of his books. Toure, this is inspired. Thank you

The journey to balance....

Thoroughly enjoyed accompanying Pastor Toure on his personal journey to finding true balance. Thank you for providing valuable insight into a problem experienced by many and the practical steps to help us overcome it. The chapter that explored the significance of 'people pleasing by continually accommodating the expectations of others to the detriment of ourselves and ultimately our relationship with God had particular resonance for myself....the power of ''No'. I am still in the process of learning but I've made progress....the journey continues.....to God be all the Glory!!!

A much needed book for this time

This book has really helped me to see balance in a new light. Was an easy to listen to book.

Will listen again to those parts that had most impact and to refresh my knowledge as I walk towards more balance in my life.
