Why do you work so hard?
Some people do it for the prospects: a promotion, more money, a house of their own, a car and a driver, more money.
Some others do it for the prestige. In a world where everyone wants to belong to one circle or another, the social relevance that comes with certain kinds of work is seemingly priceless.
But are these reasons enough?
Money comes and money goes, that’s life, so you cannot afford to hinge your fulfillment on something that fickle. Likewise, the things money can get you usually don’t last forever.
The other reason, social relevance, is a relative thing. No matter how much you achieve, there are people who will never care who you are or let you into their circle based on those achievements alone.
Again, not enough.
So, are you working hard for the wrong reasons?
Figure out what success and fulfillment mean to you and you’ll have your answer.
Here’s what’s up this weekend:
First, because knowing yourself is a key to becoming emotionally self-reliant, growing your happiness and improving the quality of your relationships.
Second, because it’s a big step on the journey to self-confidence. (And who doesn’t want to be self-confident?)
