We only get to live once. For you and I, we want to live our lives as meaningful as possible. At some point in your life, you may find yourself asking, “Why am I here?” or “Am I really living my life?” At the end of the day, what you’re really looking for is to live a fulfilled life – a life that is worthwhile.
What Makes a Fulfilled Life?
A fulfilled life is something that we define on our own. Living a fulfilled life begins with learning how to appreciate all the good things that each day brings. You live in the moment, taking time to learn, laugh, and love.
You’re living a fulfilled life if you’re able to explore, grow, and capture life’s pleasures as good and as long as you can without the expense of others’ pain and suffering.
How Can I Live a Fulfilled Life?
1. Get Out of Your Comfort Zone
What kind of a life are you living through right now? Are you living a comfortable life? Try to break through it and go outside where real life awaits.
It isn’t really a bad thing to live within the comfort zone. After all, we need a space where we can feel at ease. So why do we need to step out of our comfort zone?
Getting out of your comfort zone leads you to a more fulfilled life. Comfort is good but if you stay there, you’ll never know the exciting things that could be waiting for you outside. Things that might make you grow into a better person — things that will make you thankful because it happened to you.
Being comfortable often makes you less motivated in chasing your dreams. Your comfort zone isn’t created for you to linger there. It is a home where you return to after each exhausting and exhilarating life’s adventure you’ve been through.
2. Don’t Be Afraid of Failures
Take chances. It is a critical part in living a fulfilled life. Don’t be scared to take part in the learning process – failures.
We are all capable of making mistakes. And some of them lead us to failures. Making a mistake or failing at something tends to make you focus on the negative. However, it shouldn’t be your reason to be discouraged. Failures are not a reflection of you, but a lesson for you to grow into a better person.
It all goes down to one’s perspective. Remember that there are two sides to a coin. Failure can either bring you down, or teach you a valuable lesson. If you’re more of a positive person, you’ll see that failures and mistakes are a great form of learning.
3. Be Grateful
Do everything with happiness. Focus on what you have rather than what you don’t have. A sense of gratitude towards things, whether they’re simple or complex, makes life more fulfilling.
We live in a world full of stress. But most of us tend to ignore the small good things that come our way – a pat on the back, a beautiful sunset, a refreshing glass of water, and many more. If you make appreciation and gratitude a habit, life puts you on the path to happiness.
Take one step at a time. It is way easier than people make it out to be. To live a fulfilled life doesn’t necessarily mean pursuing a big dream. It’s all about finding meaning in the small things!
