When your business and personal life is on a winning streak, everything is great. When things go wrong – it doesn’t feel so good.
Far and away the best prize that life offers is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.
There’s also an in-between place that we can end up, limbo – it may be stress or a result of lack of clarity – but put simply, you’ve lost your ‘Mojo’.
From the outside looking in, you appear to have everything and yet you know there’s something missing, life has gone a little flat. Many of us have been there. And I am afraid the results can be disastrous. We tend not to talk about these things, because they don’t happen to people like us. But it’s more common than you think.
It seems that we have all fallen into a trap that we have set ourselves. Within the business we often forget our ‘why?’ – our purpose – what we’re really trying to achieve rather than just making ‘loadsa money’. And this filters down into every aspect of our lives.
What I am seeing is more and more business owners and directors who feel they earn more than enough. Yet they are somehow dissatisfied, ungrateful or what!
They still want to work but now they want to create something of value (in whatever terms): they want to create a legacy. More importantly, this breed of MD and CEO wants to create their own version of success. And this may not simply be about maximising earnings at the expense of exploiting whatever needs to be squeezed dry.
