Everyone of us has a WHY, a deep-rooted purpose, cause or belief that is the source of our passion and inspiration. You may not yet know what yours is or how to express it in words. But you have one.
Fulfillment is another word for happiness, but there’s more to it. All kinds of things make us happy at work: hitting a goal, getting a promotion, gaining a new client. But happiness is temporary; the feeling doesn’t last.
Fulfillment is deeper. Fulfillment lasts. The difference between happiness and fulfillment is the difference between liking something and loving something. Fulfillment comes when our job or life connects directly to our WHY.
The journey to understanding your why is an important one. The conclusions can navigate you through difficult storms or help you weigh tough decisions with significant outcomes. It can be an important measuring stick to guide you through a variety of choices you will face as you travel your path.
Consider pursuing more clarity in what it is that truly drives you at the core of who you are. And the deeper WHY behind it.
Most of this message was taken from the book “Find Your Why” by Simon Sinek. It’s filled with practical insights that will equip you as you chase the essence of your calling in life. Happy reading!!
