You can only play as per your own nature. And as you said even if the advice comes from the best of sources but it does not appeal to you or fit your own mental makeup, then do not accept it.
Having said all that, I believe that the reasons for the increased unhappiness and dissatisfaction in life and with jobs is that we are trying to force fit ourselves in situations because of peer and societal pressures or norms of success. If each person – man or woman – analyzed what is it that gives him or her happiness and satisfaction and then chalked out a plan / career path / life path, then we would end up making this planet a happy place – a la heaven!]]>
Good reminder to make sure I’m amped about loved-ones hopes and dreams and not just being the voice of ‘reason.’ It’s lovely in Seattle, should you have time for a visit. XO.]]>
