I respond, Great.
As we talk further, however, what emerges beyond that dream is a place of emptiness and loneliness that no level of business success has been able to fill. And you say you want to also be happy. And I say, Yes, of course.
But as we talk what becomes clear is that you thought being successful in your career, making more money, having more notoriety would make you happy. But it turned out it was just your best guess. And you are confused. Why do I feel all this emptiness in the midst of my life?
And, you continue, I haven’t yet experienced as much travel as I want, or found that lasting love or created my body of work so that I can leave a legacy and make a difference! That’s why I am not yet happy and successful!
Well, I reply, I have another approach. What if… I assist you to discover and experience a deeper sense of self-fulfillment by doing the inner work to bring forward YOU in a bigger and more expansive way. THEN, I go on to say, the illusion that something is going to make you happy out there will be replaced with a deep sense of knowing YOU – the person you were born to be. What I’ve learned through my own inner journey and through shepherding others is that when you take on the work of creating your Self, through that experience comes the life that gives you that fulfillment as well as the success you are seeking.
