Fulfillment Tips: Five Ways to Find Fulfillment [Dream Job Coaching]

Fulfillment @ Work

May 11, 2005
ISSN: 1533-3906


The path to fulfillment isn't complicated. In fact, it's far simpler than the traditional path to success, which involves working long hours and making money the highest priority.

But fulfillment at work may mean looking at what you do for a living in a new way. This week's Fulfillment Tips will give you a few ideas for changing your perspective and walking the path to fulfillment.

Of course, it can be easier and a lot more fun to have some company on the journey to fulfillment. That's why we offer Dream Job Group Coaching. It's an opportunity to become part of a small group of individuals who, like you, are seeking job fulfillment. The level of interaction and feedback within the group enables you to draw from multiple perspectives. Just imagine the possibilities!

For more information about the Group Coaching option, see the Announcement section.

Five Ways to Find Fulfillment

1. Don’t just make a living; make a difference.
Do work that matters. We work too many hours, with too much information and too much overwhelm not to personally enjoy what we do.

2. Trappings: high-paying and prestigious jobs keep you trapped.
You can make a difference by wanting to contribute more within the company.

3. Fulfillment over money!
Don’t get caught by the material definition of success. Most people today list making more money as their #1 goal. Real success comes from creating fulfillment.

4. Model and learn from others.
Have others show you, not tell you. The best way to become what you most want to be is to take on the inner and outer qualities of those who are doing what you want. They have the inner and outer resources, support, and energies that embody what you most need.

5. See the world through the eyes of your heart, not the mind or ego.
The heart knows the way towards fulfilling work. The heart should be connected with the inner voice, thoughts, feelings, intellect, touch, and sight. If you're not sure how to use the heart, realize it will grow with time. Use it once and the second time becomes easier.
