Have you ever been around someone that is obsessed with climbing the corporate ladder to get that next title and big raise?
News flash – The world today doesn’t care about titles. Anybody can be a “Founder”, “CEO”, or “expert” of anything they want. If a title is what your craving, I promise you’ll achieve it along with an empty, hollow, sad feeling.
Your focus should not be on that next title but rather on gaining experience that fuels self-improvement.
Many associate happiness with power and money and link them to the next big job title and raise. Connecting the dots, they falsely believe that the title = happiness. If you’re forever chasing titles (money and power), happiness will always evade you.
However, if you constantly seek learning and self-improvement through new experiences that force you to stretch, happiness will find you.
Most spend their lives chasing the wrong things (i.e., money, power, recognition, and praise). They waste energy and time. Ignore that stuff and stop trying to impress others. Concentrate on becoming the person “you” want to be. A person “you” are proud of.
If you are chasing titles, chase Kindness, Honesty, Humility, Integrity, Generosity, Loyalty, and Authenticity. With these titles, you’ll find the happiness you seek.
