Are you surviving or thriving?
At the start of the year the promise of a fresh start can bolster positivity and foster a new sense of hope. We all desire good health, prosperity of soul and beliefs that makes a difference but so often, despite our good intentions and attempts to be resolute, these desires and the answer to that elusive happy, fulfilled and balanced life can seem to slip through our fingers. So we often end up surviving rather than thriving. It seems to be common theme.
A couple of years ago Arianna Huffington, the influential co-founder and editor-in-chief of the Huffington Post, wrote a book: Thrive: The Third Metric to Redefining Success and Creating a Life of Well-Being, Wisdom, and Wonder. It is a passionate call to arms, looking to redefine what it means to be successful in today’s world.
She writes, “As more and more people are coming to realise, there is far more to living a truly successful life than just earning a bigger salary. Our relentless pursuit of the two traditional metrics of success – money and power – has led to an epidemic of burnout and stress-related illnesses, and an erosion in the quality of our relationships, family life, and, ironically, our careers. In being connected to the world 24/7, we’re losing our connection to what truly matters.”
