Living Life With Satisfaction
By Charrissa Cawley
Have you ever looked down the street and seen the biggest house on the street, with the nicest cars in the driveway? Maybe those people that live in that house have the trendiest, most stylish clothes, all of the latest gadgets and newest technology and everything that you have always dreamed about having. But there is likely something about those people that you don't know about.
For many people who appear to have it all, they are missing one critical thing from their lives – true satisfaction. Many people cannot put their finger on what is missing from their lives, but they know that there is definitely a key element that isn't there. For many of these people, satisfaction is the missing key.
When we set goals in our lives, that we push ourselves to meet, we earn a sense of satisfaction - the satisfaction of knowing that we did a good job, and worked as hard as we could to attain a goal. So why don't more people set goals and strive to reach them?
The answer to that question is simple. Most people tend to shy away from goal setting because goals make them uncomfortable. Reaching our goals is hard work, and it can be scary because we don't know for certain if the goals will be reached. However, If you don't set goals, you are in essence giving away the power that you have to make your life great and to be completely fulfilled in your life.
All too often we give up on our goals, or just don't make them in the first place because it's easier not to. And by giving up on goals, you simply give away that immense power that belongs to you. For example, perhaps you have set the goal to make 2 million dollars in three years, but after year one in your business, you have only make 200k. So you tell yourself that you didn't get anywhere near your target where you should have been by the end of year one, so you might as well give up-it probably isn't going to work. When you give up on your goals that easily you are giving away your "potential success" and that "potential satisfaction" that you could have gained.
Life is too short to move through it without a sense of real satisfaction. And the secret is simple! Set goals and then do the work to achieve your goals and this will in turn build your own power and your overall satisfaction with your own life! You can't just "know" something. You have to "do" something. That's when success and satisfaction come into the equation. Try it for yourself and see!
