It's rare we feel total fulfilment
Feeling fulfilled is that feeling
that everything is right and you are on top of the world.
So often we go through life thinking
that certain things will fulfil us, but when we get there it's still not
You know when something is right,
because it feels 100% right.
If whatever you are doing isn't feeling 100% right, then something needs
to change in order for you to find complete happiness and fulfilment.
If you are not happy, you can not be the best person you can possibly be.
When you are not at your best, things get out of control, you can't work,
sleep, eat or function with the same level of enthusiasm as you can when
you are 100% happy...
Monday mornings spring to mind, compared to Saturday mornings... well...
you're in the wrong job if getting up on a Monday doesn't fill you with
If you are waking up in the morning with a sense of dread, or a sense of
fear, anxiety, worry, upset, sadness, depression, or even simply a dull
feeling, then something is not 100% right in your life.
You can of course, carry on regardless, but that feeling will build up to
a point where it explodes or backfires into your life in a difficult way.
You'll start to feel like nothing is going right for you, that nothing is
going your way. It starts a downward spiral of depression.
So what would give you
The best and most constructive way
of dealing with things is to sit down and write out everything in your
life which makes you feel wrong or unsatisfied. All the things which don't
feel right, or that are not giving you the happiness which you truly want.
You may want to loose weight, build muscle, you may not be getting
satisfaction at work, or at home.
Then look at the things which DO
make you happy, look at the things you want to achieve in your life time.
Look at how you want to feel every morning. For every single thing that is
wrong, there IS a way to make things right, or at least a little better
than they currently are.
It doesn't always have to be as drastic as quitting your job, but if your
job is becoming mundane, look at why. If you need something more
challenging, well what skills do you have... without getting despondent at
the state of the job market, or your own lack of self worth, what do you
want to be doing as work... and before you start making excuses as to WHY
you can't do something else... look at the qualities you need to build up
within yourself so that you CAN take on what you truly want.
Look at the goal post... you may not know yet how to kick a football - but
you can learn.. you can take steps... steps in the right direction to at
least start feeling that your life is heading in a certain direction.
But, this is something which you can not do half heartedly. You have to
believe in yourself and in your capabilities. You have to believe in your
You have to remember that the only thing stopping you from being happy is
Why do you deny yourself happiness?
When you are happy and fulfilled you are capable and feel capable of
taking on the world... think back to some point in your past when you felt
like that. When you felt that everything was perfect, you loved your job,
home and life in general... everyone has one point in their lives when
they felt like that, even for a split second... But that feeling of being
on top of things is what you need to find in your life, should it be that
you are not 100% happy with it.
Things will not go right for you unless you take steps to make them right.
Be honest with yourself, be honest with others and allow every step you
take be on sure, sound footing.
You can choose the downward spiral, or you can choose to life yourself up
to new heights.
Life is too short to sacrifice your own happiness. Life is too short to
not even try to fulfil your dreams.
