Fulfilled Living – Your Choice

Fulfilled Living Your Creation

Fulfilled living is deeply rooted in our inner world. Are you happy where you are now, at this very moment? Do you dream of a higher life, a life with meaning and fulfillment?

To perpetuate a better tomorrow, to realize a better future lies in the understanding that your current situation is the direct result of all the decisions you have made right up to this minute. Fulfilled living is based upon your everyday choices.

“From the same materials one builds palaces and another hovels; one rears a stately edifice, while his brother, vacillating and incompetent, lives forever amid ruins.” – Henry Ward Beecher

Life is a mere reflection of our inner world

Coaching experts all around the world agree, what we get out of life is what we are prepared to put into it. Our very existence is a mirror; it reflects the sum of all the faces we make. If we are determined to suffer, we will suffer. If we are determined to win we will win.

Judging others, we can be sure that we are being judged. If our lives are spent on finding fault in others, our personal world will be full of disappointments. If however, we are forgiving, understanding and try to concentrate on the well-meaning of others, we will most certainly be inspired on a daily basis.

“Everyone is the offspring of his own works.” – Cervantes

Many people although convinced that they are free and able, seem to think that there is some sort of fate waiting to throw them of their path at any given moment.

Fear of the unknown

This fear and anxiety that people experience, is nothing more than the apprehension of the unknown. To effectively deal with this fear is to study further, education and continual self-growth and awareness. The more we know the less likely we will give into these anxious fears of fate.

The more we learn, the more confidence we posses coupled with a greater enthusiasm for daily life. Only people, who are determined to rise up, will achieve success.

There is dew in one flower and not in another because one opens its cup and takes it in, while the other closes itself and the drop runs off.” – Beecher

Every person’s disposition, ignorance, prejudice, indifference, anger or vice, builds a wall between themselves and anything that would impart, wisdom, greatness, goodness & guidance. Fulfilled living is about cultivating a non judgemental attitude.

I read an article once, which explained how some people are like bees going from flower to flower collecting honey.  And others spend their day like a spider, carrying their poison to as many unlucky victims as they can find.

Same environment different outcomes

I always find it interesting how one brother finds happiness where ever he goes, while the other looks as though he has just come from a funeral.

What determines such different attitudes to life, when both of them grew up in the same home with the same mother and father; who benefited from the same school, community and environment? It can only be – CHOICE!

One chooses to focus on the negative; normally done out of spite, ignorance, fear and even laziness. The other can quickly choose a more constructive and positive path.

It comes natural to him, because he is confident in himself, seeks approval from no one, he is confident and certain of his own abilities yet always open to improve himself. Fulfilled living is the path of the enthusiastic and motivated person.

Life is truly what we make of it. It’s all about Choice. Which path are you going to choose?
