Before you attempt to answer, use the scale of your dreams and goals to assist with the answer. Don’t depend on outside influences like the thoughts of others or the feelings of society. Be honest with yourself, after all only you are reading this and only you will know the answer.
At one time or another we have set goals. Goals give us a reason for getting up in the morning. We are always moving towards something that makes an impact on our life. If you are in college, graduation day represents a goal. It may be four years down the road, but it is still in sight.
When you find a job, the goal may change to one of promotion. We strive to be better than we are not because of others but because of our drive to do more than simply breathe the air. Each person wants their time on this planet to mean something. The meaning could be for us alone or for our families or the world.
What are some of your goals and dreams? If you’ve never taken the time to write them down, buy a journal and do just that. It could take more than one sitting if you are rusty at delving deep within your mind.
No matter how outrageous they seem, write ALL of your aspirations down. The culmination of dreams is not necessarily a lifelong career. You may want to scale a mountain, but that doesn’t mean you want to be a mountain climber. Scaling a mountain is an experience you’d like to have and fulfilling that adds a measure of character to your life.
You may not meet all of our goals. An unmet goal either leads us down a better path or it sours our attitude. Strive for the former. Some of us are so set on keeping up with the Jones’ that we don’t realize the harm we are doing to our own level of joy in the process.
Take a good, long look at your goals and dreams list. Who knew you had so many desires. Life is not about pursuing one path and staying on it for the rest of your life. It is about the detours and rest stops we choose to take that turn us into well-rounded and understanding people.
Only you can answer the question, “Is Your Life Fulfilling?” No one knows your heart like you do. It is the question many long for someone else to answer for them, but you’ll soon realize that any answer another would give will be wrong because they are not you. You know you best. Use your goals and dreams as a guide to find the fulfillment you long for.
