Core Values

A Balanced Man has many assets and strengths. It is his values that keep him aligned with his purpose, even when faced with hardship and adversity. These are core values of The Balanced Man Retreat.

INTEGRITY

Integrity stands as the cornerstone of a Balanced Man's character. It speaks to the unwavering commitment to one's own principles, honesty in all interactions, and the courage to act with honor even when faced with temptation or adversity. To act with integrity is to be authentic and transparent, ensuring that one's values consistently align with one's beliefs. For a Balanced Man, it is not just about doing the right thing when others are watching, but more crucially, doing the right thing when no one is. This internal compass of moral fortitude garners trust, fosters genuine relationships, and creates a foundation of reliability.

RESPONSIBILTY

Radical personal responsibility encapsulates a Balanced Man's dedication to himself and others. He recognizes

that every action has consequences and strives to make choices that reflect his commitment to his goals, community, and those he serves. He takes full

ownership of any circumstance he finds himself in and

is never a victim. A Balanced Man does not blame

others and instead acknowledges that he is not defined

by external stimuli but instead only by his reactions to

the stimuli.

SELF-DISCIPLINE

Self-discipline is the force that drives a Balanced Man to pursue excellence in all facets of life. It's the ability to regulate one's actions, resist short-term temptations, and consistently apply oneself toward achieving goals. Through self-discipline, a Balanced Man harnesses his passions, tempers his impulses, and cultivates a resilience that empowers him to face challenges head-on. It's more that just willpower; it's a cultivated habit of focused persistence, ensuring that even in the face of distractions or setbacks, a Balanced Man remains commited to his path of personal growth.
