The way you spend your life is your choice.
We can’t convince everyone that they were created for a specific purpose.
But, if you are spending your physical, mental, and emotional energy doing work that doesn’t suit you, we know that you are one of many who are languishing in their jobs. And, you’re not making the contribution you are here on this earth to make.
If you are working in the wrong job, every day is a waste of your talents and gifts. There is no reason for you not to search for a job where the grass for you truly will be greener.
Our twenty year study of companies and their employees confirms Gallop’s assertion that more than 76% of all workers are not feeling engaged in their work. We have studied more than 300 businesses and our findings reveal that more than 75% of all workers in all types of jobs across all industries are in a wrong position; a job assignment that is not aligned with their deepest, most innate capacities for making certain kinds of contributions.
We have found a major component of this problem. These people have a Core Values Nature that does not fit the tasks, the purpose, or the responsibilities their individual jobs require.
Most of these people have more than enough talent, and good enough skills to do the work. But the tasks of the job require them to invest their essential energy in work and responsibilities that do not provide the opportunity to make the highest and best contribution the individual can make.
The job does not ask them to contribute their essential nature to their company through their assigned work.
The Grass is Greener for anyone who is correctly fitted in a role that needs the investment of just the type of energy that is an expression of that person’s innermost nature. Fitting the right job with the right person allows the individual to be who they are, all day long. The job needs them to express—to invest all of their capacities to be a certain kind of presence, in that job, to make the kind of contribution that the person is wired to make. They are being asked to invest the unique mixture of life energies that they are.
In my upcoming book The Grass IS Greener, I will help you explore what Greener Grass looks like for you. I don’t want you to waste your gifts and your talent working in the wrong job when you can be experiencing Greener Grass everyday all day long.
