WorkLife Book Of The Week: How To Get To Self-Realisation And Self-Acceptance

Welcome to WorkLife Book Of The Week. Every week Monday through Sunday I serialise a story from the School of WorkLife book series. I do this each day in under 280 characters, which I post across my social media channels. Then at the end of each week, I bring all 7 daily posts together here as 1 weekly blog post, which I also share on my podcast: WorkLife Book Wisdom.

This week’s WorkLife Book of The Week is: How To Get To Self-Realisation And Self-Acceptance

This week’s WorkLife Story of The Week:  How He Got to a Place of Self-Realisation by Exploration Which Had Brought Him To Self-Acceptance 

Kane’s story of how he went from believing he was honouring his commitment, to playing his part in conserving the environment, to believing he had played his part in destroying it, and how he got back to his original belief. 

MONDAY

By day Kane worked in eco technology, a job that allowed him to pursue a goal he had established for himself: to play his part in helping to conserve the environment. By night he was a sushi roller, a job he had taken on to put himself through university. Kane took great pride in

how he had mastered the art of sushi making, and he believed it was an art, one which came down to detail – Kane loved detail. However, that pride was about to take a fall. One evening, Kane watched the documentary Sushi: The Global Catch. He was shocked to learn how the global

love and demand for sushi exceeded sustainability; how there is no species that has fared worse than blue-fin tuna at the hands of humans; and how there was a growing need to put them on the endangered species list, because the population had been taken down by eighty percent 

THURSDAY

Kane made the decision there and then to walk away from rolling sushi. Learning about the environmental impact of his industry, he needed to step away and do some soul searching. He couldn’t believe that as someone who prided himself in being environmentally conscious, he had

been unaware of how he was playing his part in contributing to the devastating impact on our oceans. This was the polar opposite of playing his part in conserving the environment. Overnight he went cold sushi. When he could bring himself to watch the documentary again without

self-judgement of having contributed to environmental damage, albeit unknowingly. He slowly began to see different elements in the programme that he had blocked out before. From that his perspective changed.He began to realise that if he was going to play his part in saving the

art of sushi, he must also play his part in helping to adopt more environmentally conscious and responsible practices throughout the industry. Kane always believed all of us have the power to change our part of the world, whatever that may be. That is what he set out to do.

The School of WorkLife book series are designed to help you manage your own WorkLife Learning.

Each book tells real WorkLife stories of the successes and challenges people encountered in their WorkLife. Each book also includes the exercises that helped navigate these situations, which are presented as assignments for you to work through.

The stories I share are based on real life WorkLife situations – case studies of the challenges and successes people experienced in navigating the chapters of their WorkLife Story.

I believe stories are a powerful mechanism for teaching, a powerful medium to learn through, and also a powerful way to communicate who you are and what you stand for.

I hope you enjoy the stories and find them helpful in navigating the chapters of your WorkLife story.
