A life of fulfillment

A guide to a satisfying life.

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.

We all aspire to reach a state where we find our lives enriched and fulfilled. Isn’t it? However, do we clearly know what would make our lives satisfying?

How about we backtrack this? Let us do a small exercise – Pretend you already have all that you need/want. Now, how do you visualize this? What do you see? What do you hear? How does it make you feel? Would you want to change anything?

This exercise will give an idea of what exactly we are lacking in life. Our specific goals can be better understood. Through this, you are allowing your subconscious mind to take charge and tell you what you truly need.

Once you have imagined that you have whatever you need, where you want to be, what you want to do in life, a sequel exercise can be carried out by answering these questions – how did you get there?
What steps did you take to reach that state? How did this state of mind make you feel? Be as specific as you possibly can. Remember, the key is in the details.
The moment you live it in your mind, half your job is done. Your subconscious mind lives it and finds a way to get there.

I’d suggest you close your eyes while visualising for better results. Be in a state of awareness and write down, if that’s helpful.
