Helping others increases the meaningfulness of our work

Results of a recent study indicate that perceiving own work as helping others has positive impact on the individual’s sense of meaningfulness. So helping others is useful for both parties involved, the person helping and the person being helped. Finding our work meaningful gives us joy and satisfaction. To know that we’re helping people can have a positive impact on our well-being and productivity.

👉👉 I know for sure this is true for me. It is my highest motivation to help others. I find immense joy and satisfaction in meaningfully helping people achieve their business and life’s goals. I do it as a Business Analyst, I do it as a NeuroCoach. It has been one of my greatest fulfilments to see people satisfied with my work and the help it provided them. It is un utmost joy to hear a client has just had an “AHA‼️” moment and is feeling the weight lifted from their shoulders because they realised they can forgive themselves and move on with life!

The key word here is “perceive”. Every job is in a way impacting and helping others. From saving someone’s life in the operating theatre to providing the food on our tables to cleaning the streets… Everyone’s work is meaningful and is having an impact on others. But sometimes we can have hard time to seeing this for ourselves.

If you feel like you may benefit from a brainstorming session on this, I’d love ❤️ to see your comments 😊

You know how some people get bullied in the workplace? And sometimes flashbacks from the past are haunting them even years after they left that situation? Well, what I do is to help them remove the emotional charge from their traumatic experiences and find their path to freedom.
