10 Simple Ways to Find Great Fulfillment in Life
All of us want to find fulfillment and satisfaction in life.
However, most of us don't know how to get it. Right?
Here are things that will help you to find it in your life.
1. Find inspiration
Find inspiration in every way possible.
You can find inspiration in nature. You can find inspiration in a message.
You can find inspiration in a book. Someone's life may inspire you.
There are always ways to find inspiration.
Listen to a message on YouTube or a podcast.
We all need inspiration to move forward in life.
So go ahead and find your inspiration.
2. Help others
Nothing brings us greater fulfillment in life as helping others.
Look out for different ways to help people.
It may be providing warm meals to the homeless.
It may be distributing goods to the poor.
You may volunteer your services at a non-profit.
Go to a rehabilitation center and counsel someone there.
There are countless ways that you can help others.
Helping others brings joy and happiness to our own soul as well as to the recipients.
It gives value and worth to people.
3. Have a positive attitude
Having a positive attitude is one of the best things in life.
It’s all about your attitude.
Our attitude will determine our altitude.
How high do you want to go in life?
If you are aiming higher, you have to develop the right attitude.
A positive attitude looks at the positive, even in a seemingly negative situation.
When a half empty glass of water is placed before a positive person, he sees it as half full not half empty.
That attitude will carry you through many storms in life safely to the other side.
It is said that Thomas Edison conducted 1000 failed experiments and invented the light bulb on his 1001st attempt.
What a positive attitude he had. We would do well to emulate his example.
4. Make it a habit to save money
Money is crucial for life on earth and so you should know how to manage it properly.
There are three aspects to money basically- Earning, spending and managing.
You should learn all three aspects to do well in life.
Learn to make money legitimately.
Don’t rely on just one source of income but generate multiple streams of income.
Try to develop at least one stream of PASSIVE income.
Spending should be relative to your income and based on your needs, not your wants.
Save at least 20% of your income and invest it further into diverse instruments like stocks, property/real estate, insurance, mutual funds etc.
This will allow you to have a balanced portfolio.
5. Learn to outsource as much as you can
You can’t possibly do everything in life by yourself.
There are things which you can manage to do easily.
Some things demand a level of skills and expertise that you may not have. It would be wise to outsource those things.
That way, you can leverage the skills of others and benefit from it.
Of course, it comes at a price but it is worth it.
Don’t try to reinvent the wheel. Learn from the experiences of others by outsourcing to them.
6. Learn new skills
Life should always be a learning process.
The moment you stop learning, you will stop growing.
Life is so vast that one can never learn everything there is in a whole lifetime.
Therefore it makes sense to keep learning new skills.
Keep upgrading your knowledge.
Knowledge is power. The more knowledge you gain, the more power you will have.
7. Maintain a journal
It is a very good habit to maintain a journal or personal diary.
In the journal, note down all the major activities or happenings of the day with the date mentioned there.
This will help you to track the trajectory of your life journey.
Many years later when you read it, it will make you grateful for your journey.
Most successful people maintain a daily journal and document their journey regularly.
8. Always think big
As you think, so shall you be.
If you think small, you will remain small. If you think big, you will receive big things in life.
The right mindset is of utmost importance.
You can develop the right mindset and it will dominate all aspects of your life.
Think big. Imagine big. Visualize big.
9. Never give up
No matter what happens in life, never give up.
Develop that resilience in life that you will never give up no matter what happens.
Fighters keep going. Cowards give up too soon.
Life is a long term game just like a marathon race.
Learn to think long term.
I was just watching a documentary of Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon.
Amazon is the world's foremost eCommerce website selling everything under the sun.
In this documentary, Jeff Bezos convinced his shareholders to think long term.
He actually ran the business in loss for a whooping 25 years. Does Not make good business sense but he did it anyway.
He did it to capture more market share and then he cut off all competition.
Today, Amazon has the monopoly in selling goods online.
He never gave up for 25 years and then finally Amazon became a world leader in online business.
10. Practice gratefulness
Finally, be grateful in life.
Gratefulness will bring many good things in your life.
Don't look at what you don't have but look at all that you do have.
Gratefulness will make you humble and happy.
All these 10 things, when practiced, will bring tremendous fulfillment and happiness in your life.
