A Father's Wisdom At 50: 3 Life Lessons For Happiness And Fulfillment

Zinger Key Points
  • Trusting intuition and embracing inner voice are key to positive outcomes and opportunities.
  • Pursuing passion and managing stress effectively lead to a more fulfilling and joyful life.

Health and wellness reporter Renée Onque recently shared with CNBC how her father, Suliman Onque, lived by three valuable life lessons.

  1. Embracing Your Inner Voice. Onque's father, who will turn 50 in April, believes in the power of trusting one's intuition. Listening to your inner voice often leads to positive outcomes and unexpected opportunities, he says.
  2. Avoiding the Pitfalls of Stress. Suliman Onque also emphasizes the importance of clarifying situations that cause undue stress, aligning with health studies that link chronic stress to various physical ailments. He advocates for managing stress through creative outlets, which has proven beneficial for his mental and physical well-being. "For this reason, my dad believes that some stressful situations can, and should, be avoided for your mental and physical health," Onque said.
  3. Finding Joy in Your Passion. The third lesson is the importance of pursuing what you love. In 2021, Suliman Onque left a two-decade-long security job to follow his passion for art, a decision that has since blossomed into a successful career. He stresses the significance of finding joy in one's work, whether it's a current job or a lifelong dream.

These lessons, focusing on intuition, stress management, and following one's passion, are not merely personal philosophies but are supported by experts across various fields. They serve as a guide to finding happiness and fulfillment in the choices we make every day.
