Can you succeed in life and still not be fulfilled? How many times in your life have you achieved what you set out to do and then a short time later thought, “Is this all there is?” There is a formula for success –called the science of achievement – which is the process of taking your dreams and making them real. But living a fulfilled life is an art, not a science. What is fulfilling for one person may be boring to another, therefore fulfilment comes in as many textures as there are human beings. However, you must learn what makes you fulfilled because here’s the truth: Success without fulfilment is the ultimate failure.
So how do we find fulfilment?
There are universal elements of fulfilment and the number one element is that we must grow. If we don’t grow, we won’t be fulfilled. The second is that you must contribute beyond yourself. If our goals only serve ourselves, then achieving our goals will only make us happy for a moment. But if your mission is to serve others, then not only will you leave a legacy of giving, but you will be more fulfilled in life. The point is this: What will make you fulfilled is to grow and to give.
What happens when we give? what happens when we serve others and impact their lives for the better? We add Value! to add value to something is to improve it whether it’s a business or a person the core of it remains the same. Increasing your value is one of the subtle arts of experiencing true fulfilment. The way I live my life is I try to do one small deed everyday that will impact someone’s life for the better. Why? because I have added value to that person’s life and in return I get a sense of true fulfilment.
Fulfilment is there for everybody to experience and we can unlock its true power by simply adding value to other people lives. The sense of giving is one of the most satisfying feelings we can experience. Use your life to add value to others and experience something only a few of us actually ever feel – True Fulfilment.
