Search for Significance, Part I

Business professionals have their own unique set of drivers that make them tick. Motivation, inspiration, and energy come from something. I am going to spend the next few installments here borrowing a theme from a book that first emerged in the 80’s. In 1987, Robert S. McGee wrote and published his great work “Search for Significance”.

“You shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free” John 8:32. Citing this quote, McGee states “He (Jesus) was referring to the application of truth in the most basic issues of life: our goals, our motives, and our sense of self worth.”

Search1Over the years, I have found several key truths emerging with almost every client or group I coach. That is this; if we are true with ourselves we will realize we are often disoriented on the quest to find self worth. I mean we are seeking approval from the wrong audience. Quoting McGee:

“Basing our self worth on what we believe others think about us causes us to become addicted to their approval.”
