When choosing or changing careers, everyone tells you to be sure you find the right job – a job that suits you. Because when you have chosen the right career/job where many aspects of your personality match the work you do, you are fulfilling the requirements that are most important to you/your personality. You will therefore experience greater levels of job satisfaction and happiness.
Your foundation is knowing your interests, character or personality, opportunities, inherent abilities and importantly your values.
But what does it mean to be happy at work? According to The iOpener Institute, Happiness at work is a mindset, which enables action to maximize performance and achieve your potential.
The happiest people are 180% more energized at work, 108% more engaged, 50% more motivated and 40% more confident. And a result, they work harder, learn more, build better relationships, and achieve success quicker. And the employer benefits as well, because employees take less sick leave (as being happy boosts your immune system) and are 47% more productive. It’s a win-win!
