Ten words that challenge your professional and personal life
LIFE ISN’T ABOUT FINDING YOURSELF; LIFE IS ABOUT CREATING YOURSELF. [...]
It has often been said that a picture is worth a thousand words, but in this picture, the words themselves are invaluable. Ten small words that offer tremendous hope and promise to anyone searching for meaning in their life’s journey.
“Finding yourself” suggests that you’ve been lost, that you knew yourself at some point but have let that knowledge slip away. You’re hunting for something that already exists but has gone missing, searching under stones and around corners to see where it’s hiding. The thought of playing detective may sound intriguing, but it’s actually limiting and tiresome. How do you know which clues to follow? Or when you’ve found what you’re looking for?
“Creating yourself” is a revelation – no boundaries, no limits, nothing lost to find...You are free to explore and experiment and shape the “You” you want to be. It is an open, active process and not a closed loop of futile searching.
At Luebke Consulting, we believe that if you want to create a (professional) life that matters for you and reach a stage of “rational exuberance”, you must be the pilot of your own life. You are responsible for defining the Why, How and What, as well as your destination. And you were born with the ideal tool for the job: your brain, a remarkable structure. The inner limbic brain is responsible for emotions and behaviour control and is the area where decisions come from. The outer neo-cortex wraps and shelters the inner brain and is responsible for conscious thought, rationality and language. Your challenge is to drill through the rational wrapping, to move past your long-held beliefs and beyond the rationale that you developed to justify them, to identify what you are passionate about, and then to develop an action play that will allow you to follow that passion.
According to psychologist Martin Seligman, happiness and wellbeing are made up of five important building blocks, which are represented by the acronym PERMA:
Positive Emotion (sometimes also referred to as “passion”; feeling good)
Engagement (being completely absorbed in activities)
Relationships (positive relationships; other people are the best antidote to the downs of life…)
Meaning (purposeful existence; belonging to or serving something that you believe is bigger than the self)
Accomplishment (a sense of achievement and success)
Leading a meaningful life is key to your happiness and wellbeing, and the good news is that if you are still searching for meaning in life, you can create it! Finding meaning is not a search and rescue operation – it is a dynamic, creative process that you can control, and our team is particularly passionate about mobilizing executives for change and success.
