Happiness in your career

Frederick Herzberg states that the motivator in our lives isn't money.

  • The motivator is the opportunity to learn;
  • To grow in responsibilities;
  • To contribute to others;
  • To be recognized for achievements.

The best way to find answers to life decisions is to understand the framework that guides the answers.

With the framework in mind, anyone can answer their own questions more insightful than an outsider can.

  1. How can I be sure that I’ll be happy in my career? 
  2. How can I be sure that my relationships with my spouse and my family become an enduring source of happiness?
  3. When life sends you in the wrong direction, how can you be sure you'll stay out of jail? 

How you interact with people affect their lives.

For instance, if an employee feels underappreciated, frustrated and undervalued, her self-esteem will be affected. In turn, it will influence how she interacts with her family.  But, if she had learned a lot and are recognized for her achievements, she will positively affect her spouse and children.

The deep rewards in life come from building up people.

The tweak to apply here is to reach out and ask for advice with the network of people whom you normally will not connect with. Remind yourself of your strengths and values, if you feel intimidated by wanting to take advice out of your comfort zone.

Instinctive reactions
