Success means different things to different people, so how do you define success? What would make you successful?
These are some things that most of my clients ask me but they are never the same. Most of my clients come from an accountancy background and most do not define success by how much money they have. They define success by feeling that they have a purpose to their life and career; to make an impact in the career that they have chosen.
Which this week led me to think about my clients and the successes that they achieved this year. I realised that most of them got what they wanted when they had clarity on how they wanted to live and work and the opportunities appeared. But I dug a little deeper and realised that the more they work and live on purpose the happier, wealthier and successful they were.
Which leads me back to the question “Is living and working on purpose more fulfilling?”.
I believe it is, my clients feel less stressed, they have time to do what they love, passion for things outside of their work and more in control of their life. They have taken time to get clear on what they want and then took action to make that happen.
So why aren’t we all living and working on purpose? I believe we don’t take the time to get clear on what we want, we feel we “must” work in a particular way, we can’t possibly make money from doing things that we love. It is harder to stand up for our values, to take a stance to say I’m working and living the way I want too! However if we do, then I believe working and living on purpose always makes us happier.
Don’t let 2016 be another year that you aren’t happy and successful. Take the time now to ask yourself:-
How do I want to live and work in 2016?
Good luck and let me know how you want to live and work.
