2016 is the Year of “Happy” at Lexicon. We’ve taken on the challenge of helping you find more of your own, bringing you holistic tips and techniques to help you find not only professional success but personal fulfillment. At the beginning of this month we launched a challenge to get that going.
Day twenty-eight of the 30 Day Life Challenge…
The quote that got this all started is “People don’t go out and live, but they expect life results.” We want you to start getting the results you want. For the last five days of the month, we thought it fitting to concentrate on the five senses that help us get everything.
Yes, we know. Success and happiness are not necessarily the same thing. Having said that, we contend that just maybe success is a factor in experiencing happiness. Success is not just attaining professional goals, it’s also meeting those personal benchmarks that give us a sense of fulfillment. Many times those two areas of our lives intersect where our personal achievements catapult our professional abilities, or vice versa. Today our question to you is: Will you know it when you see it?
What does happy look like?
The truth is, sometimes we get so busy that we just can’t see the forest for the trees anymore. Sometimes we lose sight of ourselves and our goals. It’s hard to know how to find your happy when you are a bit lost in the woods. But there are many guides to help you out. Today’s prompt is to find one. That might mean getting in contact with a career coach or setting up informational interviews to understand where you could go with your career; or you might want to find a mentor, someone who has been where you are and is where you want to be; or it could mean simply calling up a friend.
