What do you want to be when you grow up? That is the million-dollar question.
So many people come to me trying to figure that out. Age doesn’t matter in this equation. I hear from and work with 20-year-olds, 30-year-olds, 40, 50 and 60-year-olds.
Everyone is seeking that elusive answer to this life defining question. What do I want to be when I grow up?
They may ask it in different ways:
I propose that the last question is the key to finding your way. Everything we do is driven by a desire to feel good or feel happy. You can ask this question in many different ways to get to the right answer.
What will make you happy? What do like to do so much that you feel happy inside when you are doing it? Where you get lost in the moment because you are so happy? What makes your heart sing? What brings true joy to your heart? What makes you feel good to the core?
I spend a lot of time teaching my clients how to “feel” into this. You see, it’s not what your head thinks or what others think or even trying to figure out whether you can make money doing it. What is important is that you love doing it so much that you feel completely filled up when you are doing it. You feel a joy, a happiness deep inside that it actually radiates out of you.
I have found what we discover what “it” is that brings you that true, deep happiness, that everything else starts to fall into place.
It is a fun process to explore and discover how we can build these one or two core parts of what brings you inner happiness, who you truly are, into your way of being, into your life and your life’s work so you can make money capitalizing on it. When you are truly happy doing what you are doing, things just start lining up and working well and life becomes more joyful and easier.
When you are happy inside and radiating out that happiness or positive energy into the world, you attract more good whether that be jobs, clients or opportunities.
