A big bank balance, high sounding designation, enormous responsibilities and vast authority can be attained by you they could well be other people’s barometer of your success. If, after having achieved all this, you still feel a void within you, then they simply manifest dissatisfaction. At the other end of the spectrum could be a possibility that you are satisfied with your work, but are unable to generate enough resources to sustain yourself. That also demonstrates a gloomy state of affairs.
How can you make your professional life happy and rewarding? The prerequisites of a gratifying career that can be cultivated by you are:
Robust parameters: Having well defined parameters to operate in is inescapable in life. If your parameters are loose, you will tend to get occupied with others and be unable to fathom the start-point and endpoint of any of your endeavors. But if they are severe and not porous, you get disengaged, the implication of which is that you will not enjoy robust linkages with other people.
You need to have robust parameters and that means finding middle ground to facilitate fair engagement with others and concurrently have a bold enough disposition to assert and move ahead in life based on your own convictions. You can discern the robustness of your limits by mulling over your life and career; and introspecting to find out if you are living on your own terms and conditions or emulating somebody else.
Strong pecuniary rapport: If money holds out too much significance to you, it is unlikely that you will be happy at work. It makes you high and dry. On the contrary, if you do not attach much significance to money and material gains, windows of opportunities will open up for you. Money is said to be nerve in jellied form and if you let go of it, you unleash the potential of your life. If you remind yourself about the irrelevance of money to you, you will be able to focus your attention on being helpful to others, which will always be a source of happiness.
Predisposition to develop glee: If you do not pay much attention to worldly developments and instead concentrate on gaining access to your inner joy, you will invariably taste success all through your life. And if you try to do so on recurrently, success will also come to you incessantly. Remember that happiness is never an outcome of success; it is the reverse that is always true. Nerve to abandon annoyances: You need real guts to put an end to any-thing that is happening, particularly when your sense of self, apprehensions and aspirations are involved. There will be hostility to change, more so when things have existed for a long time. You may hope that things will change for the better but the fact is that currently they are not so. If you remain engaged in- tasks that generate stress, disenchantment and regret pointlessly, you do not stand to gain by any count. You need to abandon them.
Gratefulness & a vision of what you adore: Men and women who live through thankfulness are people who enjoy the most satisfying careers. Gratefulness is a very commanding pointer of anything that you adore and seek in large measure in your life. If you acknowledge with gratefulness what you adore in life, howsoever trivial it may be, you will succeed in boosting the so called facilitators of happiness. But if you close your eyes to them, you will miss out on the horde of prospects waiting to be clutched.
Willingness to stomp through consternation: If you seek delight in your life, you need to shed rigidity in all your actions. Though there are limited people who remain contented doing the same thing day in and day out, as human beings, all of us want to reach out to new contests and experiments; and become what we genuinely want to be. This calls for willingness to trudge through difficulties. If you are at ease handling trepidation, your life and career will automatically become rewarding.
A patronage loop that galvanizes you: It should be noted that when you are midway in your career, the only items on your agenda are possibly enlarging your skill sets and taking on additional work so that you can reach the top of the career ladder. You do not realize the significance of having upbeat associations with people who are understanding, encouraging and stimulating. Tomorrow, when you either stagnate or advance ahead after grasping new opportunities, your net working will make a difference.
Remember that if you have good capacity for work and thought alike, your career and life will be gratifying. If you are unable to find means to do something as work that is gratifying, your life can turn out to be really miserable. The bottom line however, is to always be a yardstick of quality.
