Happiness is something we all strive for – at work and in our personal lives; however, a recent Gallup Poll said that about a third of us just aren’t happy and we spend about a third of our lives doing something that we hate. Our guest is a career life coach – Jody B. Miller – and she is known as the Work Happiness Expert she also has a new book – From Drift to Shift.
Why are so many people unhappy and unfulfilled?
The reasons are many, but most of the time it’s because people don’t take the opportunity to follow their heart – they just go along with expectations which may have started as early as childhood. A lot of times people have deep desires but they don’t follow their hearts and they end up doing something they don’t like – which makes them unhappy. This generation of millennials is starting to break that mold – they don’t care much about money, they are following their hearts.
When do you know what you want to do?
If we all really think about it – it is deep within us and we already know what we want to do. As one motivational speaker once said “you’re exactly where you want to be” – you have to get up and change your life. We’re all afraid, but we have to embrace change, go with the flow, work at it and embrace every new opportunity; happiness is the end goal. You also need to know that you matter.
