It’s easy to just go through the motions and continue to do what’s comfortable and familiar. But for those, who seek fulfillment, studies the fact and the circumstances in detail to paint a clear picture of what to do with the life.
Few of the basic questions need to be decoded to find the real taste of life:
- What are the things I’m most passionate about?
The first step to living a more fulfilling life is to think about the things that you’re passionate about. What do you love? What fulfills you? What “work” do you do that doesn’t feel like work?
The point is, figure out what you love doing, then do more of it.
- What are my greatest accomplishments in life so far?
Think about your past experiences and the things in your life you’re most proud of. So why not try and emulate those experiences and feelings? If you ran a marathon once and loved the feeling you had afterwards, start training for another one. Continue to do the things that have been most fulfilling for you.
- If my life had absolutely no limits, what would I choose to have and what would I choose to do?
Here’s a cool exercise: think about what you would do if you had no limits. if you had all the money and time in the world, where would you go? What would you do? Who would you spend time with?
What it does mean is answering these questions will help you set goals to reach certain milestones and create a path toward happiness and fulfillment.
- What are my goals in life?
Goals are a necessary component to set you up for a happy future. So answer these questions; health goals, career goals, family goals.
Once you figure out the answers to each of these, you’ll have a much better idea of what you should do with your life.
- What do I not like to do?
An important part of figuring out what you want to do with your life is honestly assessing what you don’t want to do. Maybe you hate meetings even though you sit through 6 hours of them every day. If that’s the case, find a job where you can work more independently.
- How hard am I willing to work to get what I want?
Great accomplishments never come easy. If you want to do great things with your life, you’re going to have to make a great effort. That will probably mean putting in more hours the average person, getting outside your comfort zone and learning as much as you can to achieve as much as you can.
So take the first step toward improving your life. You won’t regret it.
