Living a ‘good life’ means more than just happiness! In this video series I’ve selected from 101 keywords and discuss how each word can impact your potential to live a more happy, flourishing and prosperous personal and work life.

This is keyword #036 – Drivers.

One of the inescapable truths for a prosperous life is to take stock of your truth about you.

Part of your truth about you is to be clear about what will drive you to decide and act.  Your truth about you might be that you have some character traits that you would like to develop further.  Your truth about you might tell you that you have some ‘things’ you want to acquire – things money can buy and things money can’t buy. Your truth about you might tell you that you have some work to do on the relationships you have in your various life roles. Your truth about you might tell you that you need to learn new skills, gain more knowledge and build your competency and capacity to achieve what you want to achieve.

The nine inescapable truths for a prosperous life tap into what Nohria and Lawrence have researched and labelled as the four innate drivers of all human beings.  The drive to acquire, belong, comprehend and defend.

As an aspirational goal seeking human being, the more you understand your truth about you, the more you will be able tap into the resources within you now, and discover and harness the resources you need to live a happy, flourishing and prosperous life.

You might have heard me quote from the wisdom of Goethe previously, however, for today’s message, I wanted to leave you with this gem….

“Who is sure of their own motives can in confidence advance or retreat.”

Do you see?  When you’re sure of your motives, your intention, you will have confidence to make better decisions…..whichever decision you choose.
