I had my first experience with ClubHouse last night and we talked about how to be committed to the experience of fulfillment in life. We had a great dialogue, so I wanted to share it with you.
First, let’s define fulfillment. The dictionary definition of fulfillment is “the act or process of fulfilling a promise or all requirements of a task. The act or process of delivering a product to a customer”. How would that relate to life in general? So, we expanded it:The act or process of experiencing the state of happiness, contentment, and being complete with matters and situations that show up in life. It is a transient and dynamic state. Setting short-term goals and fulfilling them.
Another component of being fulfilled is living a regret-free life. To view every situation that we end up not liking or thinking that it is a mistake as an experience to learn from. I saw this quote on Linkedin ” God will put you in positions you didn’t even apply for”. View it as if with the information that was available at that time, we did the best that we knew how. And as time passes we learn more about it and add to the experience. So no regret, only learning from an experience and moving on. Having the wisdom to assess that there are times we need to do something and other times our non-action is the most important action.
Living a balanced life. A balance between responsibilities, self-care, caring for others, work, play, and giving to the bigger community will lead to fulfillment in life.
Being on integrity, doing what you say you would do, keeping your promises, deliver what you said, and clean up when you don’t, trusting yourself and others, and being true to yourself and others is fulfilling.
How do we keep experiencing fulfillment while the world around us is full of suffering? Have compassion and empathy toward people around you, connect with people’s souls and acknowledge their needs. Take a moment to see how far you have come, opportunities you have created for yourself, or have been offered to you. Feel gratitude. Offer opportunities to others in any way that you are able to. Lend a helping hand or an ear, or a shoulder to someone in need. Adjust your expectations from people around you. Assess what you are in control of and what you are not. Act appropriately on areas that you can do something about and be effective, and accept and flow with what you can not control.
Raise your level of curiosity and regenerate excitement, engagement, and joy for yourself and everyone around you.
