One experiences self-realisation and self-actualisation if he or she is doing their passion or enjoying their work. The high unemployment of today’s world prevents many from realising their full potential with their self-awareness. This hampers their development because their position will not permit themselves to grow. Here’s a small list of things to consider to know if you are who you want to be.
1. I am Getting What I Want Out of Life
A high-paying job that could pay for everything is not always a happy job. It can be time-consuming. It could have you miss the most important parts of your life. Is your pay worth the time and effort you spend on it? If you are not getting what you want out of life and your work is not making your end goal materialise, you may need to re-assess your life.
2. Am I Happy?
Work should be a passionate and happy endeavour. It should allow you to swing to one growth opportunity to another. An unsatisfying job should be left at once because it will not contribute to personal growth, regardless how high the compensation.
3. Is it Making People Around Me Happy?
Sad, disappointed and anxious people who care for you are sure signs your life needs to turn around. Work stress could get to you. You may spend less time with your significant other and your children. You are not sure of your standing at the current situation. Ask the people around you if they are happy for you and you may be surprised yourself.
