The percentage of employees around the world who report being engaged in their job is around 13%. That means that 87% of employees don’t enjoy what they do, and don’t feel as if they’re living their life’s purpose. Many people don’t even stop to consider their purpose, because the question is too big, or they’re so busy being busy that they don’t pay attention to what is driving their life. Take a moment to consider that for yourself. How often do you ask yourself why you’re doing what you’re doing, and why you’re getting up every day? A lot of people struggle with their quest for purpose. Dr. Ken Keis, who’s life purpose is to help others live, lead, and work on purpose, discusses finding purpose in this expert sales interview, hosted by John Golden.
This expert sales interview explores:
- Purpose and Responsibility
- Why you should invest in yourself
Take Responsibility for Your Purpose:
Many people don’t explore their purpose in life because they don’t take responsibility for the decision-making process, and the amount of work that it takes to explore one’s purpose. You have to do the work in order to discover what your purpose is.
The Importance of Self-Awareness:
Self-awareness is the biggest key to unlocking your potential. It’s also the biggest thing that holds people back. You can’t teach someone self-awareness.
Invest in Yourself:
The saddest state of affairs is for you not to feel fulfilled for the majority of your life. Exploring who you are and your purpose is not just for a possible promotion, or a possible career switch, it is an investment in you, and an investment in your happiness, so that you don’t go the rest of your life feeling purposeless.
