To end the week, this is the last of our triad of work related questions.

We have asked why you go to work, we have asked what you wished for as a job when you were young.

Now to round off, can you imagine if all jobs paid the same ? That wage was enough for you, and you could choose any job at all.

Now, have a think, what is it that you would really choose to do? You have complete freedom - anything - just name it!

Taking our attachment to money out of the equation suddenly allows a far greater freedom of thought.  Those things which usually we automatically discount can suddenly be considered. The same applies with much of life and our plans, not just our work.  

For a moment though, let's stay focussed on the job search ...

If you are a lawyer, dealing with multi-million pound contracts between multinationals and governments, is this what you would really choose, or would perhaps being a teacher, or even a landlord of a pub or B&B owner appeal more?

What if you are a hard-working builder, out in all winds and weather, but actually, would find far more enjoyment by being a singer?

The extremes are endless, but it is not uncommon for us to work with people, either about to embark on a dramatic career change, or are already midway through it.  Given the freedom to think without attachment to money, we can then establish what it is which really matters, what counts, what would enhance this person's life. Of course, as Financial Life Planners, we then need to do the clever financial work to help these new dreams become a possibility.

The same applies for all areas of life, not just the career, although this is the area which frequently becomes the big sticking point (fearful of not having any income or being attached to what there is right now).

Putting the person before the pound notes helps us to find what is deeply important, and once we know that, we can then start to help the changes which bring about a more fulfilling existence.

Together we can bring some Serenity to your life
