Why be happy, when you can be fulfilled?
Happiness – everyone wants it.
Everyone strives for it.
Pause and think about What makes you happy? Now think – What REALLY makes you happy?
Happiness is in moments, in objects, in things we do.
We all chase happiness even though we know its temporary.
In the uk, when asked “How are you?” the common answer is “not bad”
This infers that we are not bad, but we are not good either, we are in this kind of inbetween state – in the state of ‘getting there’.
If you get the object, or take the class or live for the happy moments – Happiness will change your state – for a while. All the other times you’ll be just “getting there”.
The point is is that its not LASTING.
Happiness, like sadness, doesn’t last forever.
However FULFILLMENT – lasts a lot longer than happiness – its a more rounded way of looking at things you do. Its a holistic way of looking at the person that you are and what choices you can make to express yourself more fully.
Why isn’t fulfilment the thing we chase?
Because getting quick fixes of happiness is EASY – You pay the money and you have your experience.
Fulfilment takes work. It takes dedication. It takes persistence and determination.
Fulfilment is like a commitment to consistent happiness, but its not wrapped up in good/bad like happy/sad. Its understanding.
Its understanding of consistency, that yes there will be the good and the bad and thats OK, because its all part of the whole. Its all part of the same thing; Your grand expression of yourself.
Its my belief that if you commit to fulfilment, your life immediately has depth. You have purpose, intent and MEANING behind why you do things.
Don’t settle! Be all the things you want to be! Have all the things you want to have!
Ask yourself – What are you settling for right now that you could change?
Will you make a commitment to fulfilment today?
