Many of us reach a point in our lives where something feels not right. We wonder what we want to do with our life or what we want to be when we grow up, even if we’re already established in a career. We wonder if we love what we do. We look for more out of our relationship, out of ourselves and our life. In other words, something is missing to feel we live a fully happy life.
There is a ton of advice out there that tells us how to design a happy life. “Chase your dreams and follow your passion.” “be grateful and become the happiest person you know.” “live your full potential and be the best version of you.” While this advice can feel inspiring and encouraging, it can also leave us overwhelmed, confused, and uncertain about what to do next.
As more and more messages float around telling us how to live a happy life, we start to lose the big picture. We forget that designing a happy life is a journey and the most important point in any journey is knowing our starting point and where we are now.
In the journey of designing a happy life, our starting point is knowing who we are. What drives me? What are my core values? What are my needs? What makes me happy? What am I passionate about? What are my strengths and weaknesses? What makes my relationships work or not work?
If we know who we are, establishing where we can find our happiness and how to get there is much easier. In practice, that might mean developing habits that align our life with our core values or even revising our core values. It might mean reinvesting in the needs that we currently satisfy or being more attentive to the needs that we had previously ignored. Or it might mean breaking our dysfunctional beliefs and foster our passions.
The journey of designing a happy life is daunting and tough, but our ultimate goal at Inome is to make the process as easy as it can be. We’ve broken down the journey into three steps of Reflection, Discovery, and Growth and will guide you through this journey step by step. Stay tuned and we will go through each step in upcoming posts.
