The story of the fish

Two young fish swim down a river as an older fish swims past them in the opposite direction. He says, “Good morning, boys. How is the water?" They smile at him and keep swimming.

After a while, one young fish turns to the other and asks him: “What is water?” His natural element is so natural to him that he doesn't even know that he is in it.

In your own element

Being in his own element feels so. If you do something that is so completely self-evident, with which you are so in harmony, you feel that you are doing exactly what you like.

How is it by you? Are you in your element? Do you know what your element is or how you can find it? There are so many people who lead their lives in their element and have the feeling that they are doing exactly what they are created for.

Talent and individual passion

Many others do not do this - they have little joy in their lives, just stand by and long for the weekend.

The element combines natural endowment with individual passion. First of all, it means you do something for which you have a talent at home. Be it guitar or play basketball, cook, teach or deal with technology or animals.

Accounting as passion?

People who are in their element can be, for example, teachers, designers, housewives, entertainers, physicians, firefighters, artists, social workers, accountants, clerks, librarians, foresters or soldiers. You can have all sorts of professions.

I recently spoke to a woman in her sixties who has been an accountant all her life. As a child, she understood numbers immediately and was fascinated by mathematics. She just had it on. Knowing what skills you have and what that really means is an important step in finding your own element.

Choose a profession that you love

But being in his element means not only doing what one can do well. Many people can do things for which they are not interested. Being in his element also means loving what one does.

The bookkeeper agreed. She had not only talent in calculating, she also liked it. For them, bookkeeping meant no effort. That was exactly what she really liked.

As Confucius said: "Choose a job you love and you don't need to work a day in your life." In my element Confucius did not know, even if it sounds like it.
