Fulfilled people are content
It’s incredible how some people just seem to be naturally content?
They always seem to be cheery and fulfilled, no matter what’s happening in their lives.
Have you wondered what their secret sauce is?
How can they stay so happy all the time when the rest of us are griping and grouching about how hard our lives are?
Here are some of the most typical qualities of truly fulfilled people.
Do your best to integrate some of these strategies into your own life.
1. They follow their passion
Following your passion doesn’t have to mean giving up your 9 to 5 and living in an ashram.
It may be as simple as including what you love doing into your life.
Think of what really makes you feel good – maybe it’s writing, drawing, ceramics, hiking or dancing, it doesn’t matter.
What matters is that you make space for it in your life.
And do it regularly, not just when you can fit it in.
2. They focus on their goals
Fulfilled people usually have a set of goals they want to achieve.
Not an impossible laundry list, but a small number of achievable, meaningful goals that will challenge but not overwhelm them.
Keeping your goals, attainable sets you up for success and greater happiness.
3. They are comfortable with imperfection
Perfectionists are almost guaranteed to be unhappy, dissatisfied people.
You’re much more likely to feel fulfilled if you set yourself high but not impossible standards.
This is where each success is a stepping stone towards meeting your goals.
Match this with a commitment to continually look for opportunities to improve.
Without beating yourself up, and you will move ahead in leaps and bounds.
4. They are kind
Take a look at the people you notice are happy, and you’ll see one thing in particular that they share.
Happy people are almost universally kind and generous.
They help others, they let other drivers into the traffic, they hold the door or the elevator.
Not for any other reason than it’s a kind thing to do.
And as an added bonus, making other people happy makes you happy too.
5. They give it their best effort
Fulfilled people focus on what they do and give it their best shot.
If you give it your all, it doesn’t matter too much whether you win or lose.
So, focus on what you love, and do it to the best of your abilities.
Enjoy the process and don’t worry so much about the outcome.
People who are fulfilled in life are those who at some point, recognised some form of dissatisfaction in their live’s.
Realising that what they were doing wasn’t working, they made a conscious decision to pursue a life different from anything they had done before.
As a result, they found a life of purpose and meaning.
A life they could be proud of.
So, can you.
You already realise that there is more to life.
All that’s waiting for you now is to put into practice the things you know and have learned.
Don’t be afraid to start small.
Keep in mind, discovering this kind of soul-deep satisfaction isn’t an overnight process.
It’s a journey you’ll be enjoying for the rest of your life.
