The Importance of a Balanced Life

Andres Pira, a serial entrepreneur, real estate tycoon and philanthropist, is an excellent example of how living a balanced life can drive a future of achievement. He outlines the secret of his success so that all can benefit from it.

Humble and yet charismatic, Andres Pira says, “Sharing what you wish for is the secret of success. If it’s money you desire, make sure you help others make money first. If it’s happiness you crave, make sure you help others to become happier first”. It is a creed that he has developed based on his personal experiences following his arrival in Thailand at the age of 20.

Why Lead a Balanced Life?

Initially, Pira ended up penniless before a book titled The Secret transformed his fortunes. As a result of this “I learned how to lead a better life from many books from that point onward, crafting a philosophy of my own—the Wheel of Life—which requires a balance of relationships, finances, health, and family. I don’t simply preach this concept, I live it every day,” he says.

He goes on to explain that to live life to the full one must find one’s true calling. “It is important to find what it is that you love to do—the thing you are passionate about. When you find it, you will enjoy working on it, and this invariably leads to eventual success. For instance, I have always dreamed of living in paradise. So I have worked hard to create my own paradise in Phuket.”

His success is evident, and Pira started attracting people who believed in his vision to Blue Horizon Developments. In June 2017 the Phuket based development company was named Top Thai Property Developer and Best New Hotel Construction & Design at the 2017-2018 Asia Pacific Property Awards. One month later Blue Horizon Developments collected three awards; Best Developer, Best Mixed-Use Development, and Best Mid-range Condo Development Phuket for its 850 million baht Grand Himalaya Project at the inaugural Thailand Property and Dot Property Group awards. Blue Horizon’s award-winning portfolio includes The Beach Front, Skylight Villas, Signature Villas, and the Himalai Oceanfront condominium.

As the accolades for his projects keep coming and Pira says, “My vision and philosophy are imbued in the sites we have developed. This, I think, has contributed to the success that we have experienced”. Much of this success centers on his firm belief in the powers of positive thinking and the personal conviction that he can make a positive difference. “A progressive, shifting mindset from one person can make all the difference and inspire others. I have reached a stage where I want to be a contributor to the change making movement, a force for good.”
