CHARLOTTE – No, this is not an article about baseball.
Professionally speaking, when thinking back about what you wanted to be when you were growing up, are you living that dream? If not, I have some good news…and I have some great news!
The good news is, you’re not alone. In fact, of the 2,000 adults surveyed in the US in 2019, only 10% of them are living their dream. And if you think that’s bad, among 1,500 adults in the United Kingdom, that number is a mere 4%.
The GREAT news is you have an opportunity, at this very moment, to change that. To be clear, I am not recommending you put down this article and quit your jobs.
But what I am recommending is that you can begin taking actionable steps that will help change your reality. One big step to change everything? Unlikely, however, if you begin taking steps to improve where you are at that gets you closer to where you want to be, then you’re on the right road.
It is about continuous improvement. It is about day-by-day, actionable steps that will have you living the life of your dreams in a constant state of joy, peace, and happiness. It’s not easy but of the things in life that are worthwhile, the work you put in will have you reaping the rewards you seek.
May you always hit the sweet spot in life AND along the way, be sure to lead with kindness in your thoughts, actions, and attitude.
