Are You Ready To Feel Incredibly Fulfilled?
I often hear people tell me that they feel like their life is not fulfilled. I’ve spoken to countless individuals who feel disconnected regardless of their professional success, relationship status, family or anything else we associate with fulfillment and satisfaction. This disconnect is based on us being out of alignment with our spiritual selves, we have detoured into fear we forget that we are, ultimately, love and oneness.
It can be scary to confront the fact that we’ve based our lives on belief systems that lead us to not feel fulfilled. We increasingly becoming worried that we are going about our life the wrong way and a begin to feel a deep sense of regret and unfulfillment lurking around. You are not alone and the truth is that we only get to live this life once. If you feel disconnected from the very people and things that can and should enhance your sense of purpose and fill you with joy, this realization should be liberating. It’s a signal. A signal that leads you out of the unfulfilled darkness — and finds the path that is an easy one to follow. I’m sure there have been many instances that you began asking yourself “Why am I here?”, “What’s the point of it all?” and “What am I meant to do with my life?”
At the end of the day, what you’re really looking for is to live a meaningful and purposeful life…a life that matters. So what makes a meaningful life and a life that matters? The secret to a meaningful life is surprisingly not a secret!
Finding the whole of yourself, a love that can only exist when you are truly connected with your spiritual self. Your spiritual self-recognizes the connection with the intrinsic being of others around you. What is meaningful is dependent on each individual person. There is no one formula for living a fulfilled life. Finding fulfillment is your own personal journey to discovering what really matters in your life and then pursuing those things. The good news is that you CAN do just that…you can find real meaning in your life to become fulfilled. Meaning is out there and it’s waiting for you if you know how to connect to it.
To guide you to your path, there are some patterns that once you identify can lead you to live a rich, fulfilling and purposeful life. And one that you will be proud of when all your precious moments are nearing an end.
1. Find your significance
We often ask ourselves “What am I supposed to do with my life or what is my purpose?” The answer is unique for you but lies in your gifts. Everybody is compelled to leave their mark in this world. They want to be able to feel as though their life served a purpose, and usually, that purpose is linked to having a valuable and significant impact in the world. For many, it’s enough to simply make a valuable contribution to just a single person, and for others, they want to influence a whole community or even the world.
What do you dream that you could do in this world? And what drives you?
To live a meaningful and fulfilling life, determine what matters most to you in this world. What lights you up and gives you joy? Once you can hone in on these activities you’ll be more able to determine how to make an impact.
2. Find The Beauty in Adversity
The joy of the good times are what we are all in search of, but the truth is that you are not growing as a person without that adversity. You have a choice to embrace those dark obstacles and talk freely about them to others. We are not alone in the experience of struggle. When you can connect with someone openly and freely, you can make the struggle you experienced your advantage. It is our challenges and failures that define us, grow us, and ultimately makes us who we are.
Be sure to create a safe space, remain in your zone of peace when going through challenges. Have faith that it is necessary for you to experience this path and that you’re likely to not only survive it but come out a stronger person. To truly find more meaning in your life, strive for wholeness.
3. Be intentional
Being intentional is about ‘building’ powerful meaning in your life. Sometimes the answer to creating fulfillment in our life is surrounded by the very small opportunities all around us. Taking the time to connect with others, contribute to others lives and consistently consider new ways to make all of our moments’ matter.
4. Embrace mindfulness and self-reflection
You must be present with your experiences if you want to garner any meaning in them. To find fulfillment, you need to train yourself to really experience the moment and then go deeper and ask questions like “What is important to me, what makes me fulfilled and what do I want to do in my life?”. Take time away from our busy lives and allow yourself to reflect, experience and make sense of your life. Allowing yourself time to just be, get away into nature and enjoy the peace and relaxation. Whatever works for you.
5. Dare to take risks
Every time you push past your fears, you become more of the person you want to be. And as you step out of your comfort zone, you’ll be amazed at the different opportunities that life has to offer. Finding purpose and meaning in your life entails risks. You won’t find fulfillment doing the same things that you’ve always done. Fulfillment will not reach out to you, rather, you need to actively seek it. And a lot of the time, meaningful opportunities will be hiding in places that are outside of your comfort zone.
Don’t live your life wishing that you had done things differently. Live a life full of meaning by daring to take risks and fighting for your dreams.
6. Put your heart on the line
Relationships are the largest part of our journey and they give so much meaning to our lives. Even those who consider themselves self-made are deeply indebted to more people than they can count. Sadly, when you get hurt you may find a point that you cut yourself off from any deep and meaningful relationships. When you do this, people no longer get to see your vulnerable side and who you really are. Perhaps it’s because deep inside you feel you are not worthy or you fear rejection. But pushing opportunities away to truly connect with others will only make you feel alone and unfulfilled.
If you want a meaningful life, choose to go deeper. Give others a bit of your inner self and let them see who you really are. You may get hurt by opening yourself up, but if you don’t I can promise you will be hurt.
7. Value yourself
Let’s just say that you have enriched the lives of hundreds, even thousands of people. That’s certainly got to make you feel good about yourself, right? Surely that will give you a sense of meaning and purpose.
The truth is, you may have changed more people’s lives than you can count. But if you don’t believe it and credit yourself for it, then how are you ever going to feel like you have made a meaningful difference?
Self-value and believing in yourself is essential if you want to find meaning in your life.
Being fulfilled is what we make of it. We choose when to believe that something is meaningful. We’re never going to know all the answers in life, but that doesn’t mean you can’t live an incredibly fulfilled life. It really comes down to making a choice…a choice to intentionally make all your precious moments matter. Rather than living your life on auto-pilot, you need to take control and seek opportunities in your life that will add a new depth and sense of purpose. And now that you know where to look, it will be easier than ever!
