What Floats Your Boat?

Success and what it means is such an individual thing isn’t it, but it doesn’t always feel like that. I find that a lot of people are living lives and doing jobs that actually don’t give them what they want. Our society is hugely money and status driven, but research shows that after a certain point, it doesn’t affect happiness. We can feel pressure to work harder and push for promotion and get a better house or car, when actually what we want is to have more time.  

Many people do ‘shoulds, oughts and musts’ when actually doing what they want would float their boat a lot more. In coaching we call it living life by your values – i.e. what’s important to you. Freedom, space, choice and honesty are some of things important to me, so guess what, I am self-employed!   I have seen huge growth in people seeking more meaning and purpose, and it will be interesting to see what happens as the downturn lifts.
