Many of us are living lives that we feel we should be living and we don't even realise it! Today we have so many options around the work we do, the way we do it and the way we live (eg relationships, housing and lifestyle). Don't take anyone else's (including my!) word for it. Find a way that works for you and you alone, don't buy into dogma and live unapologetically! This doesn't mean you have to turn into a selfish twit; once you become aware of the immense pressure you are most likely placing on yourself to be something you are not, you will (if you choose!) become more authentic, make more impact and contribute unapologetically to your employer/business and the people who matter in your life.

Gallup states that only 13% of people worldwide feel engaged in their career. Think of the impact on our health and well-being, families, communities and our economy. There are way more options available than you ever thought possible, stop living a status quo life!
