Work Life Coaching

Dirk RoosenAchievement and Enjoyment are the front and back of the coin of value in life. You can't have one without the other, no more than you can have a coin with only one side. Trying to live a one sided life is why so many "Successful" people are not happy, or not nearly as happy as they should be.

Companies have begun to realize how important the work-life balance is to the productivity and creativity of their employees. Research shows that those employees who were more favorable toward their organization’s efforts to support work-life balance also indicated a much lower intent to leave the organization, greater pride in their organization, a willingness to recommend it as a place to work and higher overall job satisfaction.

You cannot get the full value from life without BOTH Achievement and Enjoyment. Focusing on Achievement and Enjoyment every day in life helps you avoid the "As Soon As Trap", the life dulling habit of planning on getting around to the joys of life and accomplishment "as soon as….".

Happiness is a holistic strive from the mind, the soul and the body. When you accept the emotion that is the moment you can channel it. Happiness is a muscle you can train, you will achieve with hard work and passion.

The keys for happiness:

  • Improve your relationships
  • Move for fitness
  • Use your strengths
  • Cultivate Optimism
  • Accept you are human
  • Find your force
  • Cultivate resilience
  • Cultivate pleasure
  • Take rest
  • Renew

How to become an optimist is by just doing it, visualise what you want. Like the sportsman visualising the race and his victory.
