Find Fulfillment in Your Career

What contributes to finding fulfillment in your career?

Finding fulfillment in life is the ultimate goal. As adults, most of us spend the majority of our time working, so it makes sense that one would want to get fulfillment from their job. Most of us strive to have careers that bring financial security and personal engagement. When one finds value in their career it makes the workplace a more enjoyable place to be.

Below are 3 examples where fulfillment can be found from a job.

Mission– Decide what you want to stand for and keep that in mind when conducting business. By putting your personal mission at the forefront of your mind, you will act in accordance with who you are and what you want in your profession. This will keep your personal integrity intact and in turn help you feel fulfilled by not compromising your values. When you have a clearer understanding of your values, it makes it easy to see if the organization shares them.

Learning– Use your job to level up. Find the aspects of your profession that challenge you and lean into them. This is where you will grow and learn. When you are exposed to challenges, figure out a solution to overcome it to gain that new skill. This feeling of accomplishment is a key to finding fulfillment. It is good practice to reflect on whether or not your organization is providing you with these development opportunities.

Connecting– Building positive relationships at work is also a measure correlated with finding fulfillment. By being comfortable with the people you work with, you are more likely to approach these colleagues to collaborate, ask questions or as a knowledge resource. This might look like taking on a mentee (passing on your knowledge), making friends with coworkers (especially if you share interests) and building your network (could help you land your next position or a promotion).

Leverage these three examples to find fulfillment at work and use them in your current role. If the position you have is not checking all of these boxes, this role may not be for you long term. These key aspects will help you identify the right fit for you and will guide you in identifying your dream position.
