I was talking with a prospective client who just lost his C-suite role. He quickly had opportunities to go back into the same role at a bigger organization.
It would have been easy. But it didn’t feel right.
For the first time, this executive really felt no pressure to work. No pressure to perform, to go back to the grind, to measure his self worth by meeting his organization’s KPI’s. His kids were through college. The house was paid off.
For the first time, he was asking the big question–
What do I want?
What would feel meaningful? What would bring joy to me and others?
If I already have enough, if I already AM enough, then what?
The truth is that many of us already fall into that camp. We just have trouble seeing it sometimes.
But when we see that we are already enough, that we’ve always been enough, that our innate state is peace, is joy, is wholeness, then we can ask ourselves, what can we create just because we want to?
When we do create from that perspective, all the other things, the money we thought we needed, the self worth and meaning that we thought was lacking, show up anyway.
My experience is that the universe has always had bigger ideas for me than I have.
How about you?
