How can we make life feel more fulfilling?

How can we make life feel more fulfilling?

What makes life better? It’s a big question but one that every one of us need to weight up. The constant media message that “better” means being famous, rich, or good-looking reduces life to a trivial sliver. A crude mantra that declares if you want to “be someone” you have to achieve at least one of these. But this, of course, is an illusion. You have the decision-making ability to decide what an enhanced life is and it can be as diverse and far-reaching as you please. For instance, think about people volunteering their time to help others in their neighborhood or further afield. Then, there are people passionately dedicated to their career (scientists, artists, performers, and more). Whatever captures your imagination can become your great inspiration. Mothers and fathers who dedicate their efforts to raising their children are proving daily that a better life is markedly more than focusing on our selves. Rather than self-absorption, an improved life is about enhancing the lives of others. On the one hand it could be by providing a loving home life. Or, on the other, using the best of your skills to contribute to more public improvements. Despite the clichés, the scope for achieving is fabulously diverse and ultimately limitless. When it comes to happiness, I believe that personally achieving has a key part to play. Being able to find fulfillment in your efforts in whatever realm you happen to engage in is up to us and how we see our contribution to something bigger than ourselves. You need to be “special”, above others, a  “five per center” or anything else but ordinary. For in our ordinariness we have the keys to making our efforts count. Your passion, sweat, and dedication are all that are necessary. Whether you mean to have your efforts stand out or simply be effective doing what you believe in, you are good enough as you are to do it. If you haven’t already, find your own noble passion. Then, pursue it. Regardless what you have and haven’t got this remains one of the greatest secrets to creating a better life, and it starts the moment you do.
