We are about 17 episodes into a project, Transformation Decoded, that we are working on. Our mastermind meets for an hour to 90 minutes each monday morning and we "Get Stuff Done!"
Here are our thoughts on Achievement Vs Fulfillment:
Achievement Vs Fulfillment, what roles do each of these play in our lives and businesses, and what REALLY matters?
Jackie Ulmer shares - as a 3 on the Enneagram, “achievement” is something I know well. We are known as achievers and performers and life is all about accomplishing, Also, as a 26 year Network Marketing veteran, I have lived most of my life in a profession that is always about achieving the next goal.
Make a rank advancement and one is immediately looking toward what the next goal is to be accomplished, almost without taking the time to recognize, relish and acknowledge the current achievement.
About 10 years ago, I realized how this outlook was affecting me, my business and my sense of fulfillment. I have had thoughts about how this stops me from living in the present moment; and to not be constantly future focused and basing happiness on “when
I hit the next goal; and make the next rank!”
Being more intentional with my goals and intentions, and starting with WHY, this has helped me looked beyond just the achievement and focus on what fulfillment this will bring to me.
Success is about more than money; cold hard cash means nothing. What can we do with that “success” that makes a difference for myself and others. This helps me remain present and grateful for what I have right now.
I’m reminded of Elizabeth Gilbert’s Ted Talk, where she talks about the big hit she had with “Eat, Pray, Love” and living up to that and being able to do it again. Do we try again and potentially fail, or ease back and allow that to just be our legacy. Or, focus now on only that work that is truly fulfilling.
With social media, and comparing our B roll to everyone else’s A roll, we can fall into a bad trap of believing the hype of everyone else’s achievement and perceived successes.
I’m reminded to measure my “fulfillment” on social media with how I feel in what I share and how I engage with others. It’s important to me to not have regrets over how I show up, and am thought of and remembered by others.
“Celebrity Relationships.” I've watched 3 in recent months, implode on social media after years of painting the picture of wedded bliss, soul mates and forever togetherness on Instagram. What the WHAT?
Isabel Banerjee shares - One affirmation that a goal or activity rates as fulfillment versus achievement is that it I actually feel emotionally full and sated, as opposed to the “hungry again” feeling of achievement.
Activities that truly make me feel fulfilled are more deeply satisfying. That satisfaction is longer lasting, as opposed to the achievement “Okay, what's next?” mentality that is easy to fall prey to as an entrepreneur and a high achiever .
My Lift As You Climb mantra is good measure of success of prioritizing goals for fulfillment and alignment with your “WHY”. With this philosophy, everyone collaborates and helps each other fulfill their potential. Mutual reciprocity creates energy and ensures that everyone is achieving and fulfilled at the same time.
