“Life is more than just climbing the corporate ladder”.
We all can agree that 2020 was a challenging year. With all the uncertainty, some (if not all) of us are a bit uncertain as to whether or not we should continue on our existing path or create new ventures.
It is important that after assessing our 2020 experience, we understand that life is more than just climbing the corporate ladder. Too often, we have high expectations for fulfilment at the top of the ladder, only upon arrival, we feel empty and unfulfilled.
It is time we give ourselves an opportunity to be all that we can be, by living life from the essence of our being. It is time we align our innate gifts, abilities, creativity and authenticity with our purpose. It is time we engage with our passion. It is time we pursue and prioritise what truly matters and has deeper meaning to us.
Here are 3 reasons why we must live from the essence of our being:
Reason number 1 – To live a fulfilled life. Abraham Maslow, an American psychologist, developed a hierarchy of needs theory, to explain human motivation. At the very peak of the hierarchy is self-actualisation, where you achieve your potential, ability and purpose, so you can live a fulfilled life.
Reason number 2 – To live a simplified life. Giving to others who we are is the most natural and unique experience. Everything else is stifling and complicated.
Reason number 3 – To contribute to the world at our highest level. In order for us to do that, we must live in our authenticity, so our contribution can flow freely within us and so we can make an authentic and unique impact.
Be mindful of the fact that true internal happiness is a result of a simplified and meaningful pursuit.
And always remember that who you are is enough. Your uniqueness, gift, creativity, authenticity and purpose were a strategic move of God.
