Many times in our careers and lives we feel unfulfilled and unhappy because we have set goals that don’t answer our deepest needs, whether we selected those goals for ourselves or allowed others to do it for us through their influence on our choices.
For example, I went to school with a very talented young man, John, whose father and grandfather, were very successful attorneys. As a small child, even before he began school, it was made clear to John that they expected him to become part of the family law firm. Although he displayed incredible artistic ability throughout his schooling, he was never encouraged by his family to develop this talent.
After John graduated law school and joined the family’s law practice, he became increasingly unhappy and unfulfilled in his work and life. As time went on, he gained weight and developed high blood pressure and ulcers. Eventually, after ten years of frustration, John had a nervous breakdown. When he recovered, he left his family’s business and began his own art school for children. Today he is not making the same money as he would have as a lawyer, but he is a totally changed man. For the first time in his life he is happy, healthy, full of energy, and at peace with himself. He is now building a new life that suits his inner desires and talents. He has found a career that gives him peace of mind and joy. That clearly ranks as one of the most important measures of success for anyone in life.
We cannot go through life fulfilling other people’s desires and expect to be happy ourselves. A winner is someone who sets his or her own goals, commits to those goals, and then pursues those goals with all the ability they possess. To be in complete harmony with ourselves is much more important than impressing others. Peace of mind simply means that we are free from anger, guilt, and fear. To achieve such a state of mind allows us to use the unlimited potential we all have within us. You have to start to live from your own heart and do what you love.
