“What must I achieve in life so that when I am old, I can look back on my life and be completely satisfied”
Deep question, right?
We ALL at some point ask ourselves this question.
We all do everything that we can so that we are satisfied but we are always left with the feeling that we are longing for something more, but we don’t know what that is? You’re probably nodding at the screen right now, right?!
Well my friend! Get a piece of paper and a pen and begin writing your 5 most fundamental values that you aim incorporate into your daily life
My 5 core values:
These are the values that I try my very best to use to guide me to achieve my goals and keep me on track. I believe we all have a different set of unique values that we aim to use daily. However, these unique set of values you are not born with, nor to they appear overnight – they are built slowly through your experiences and choices.
We all want to leave our mark on the world and in order to have a meaningful life we have to master psychological wellbeing – but then the question comes up…what defines meaningful? Well..I can’t answer that for you BUT what I can do is type up this quote and you can figure it out for yourself…
“Define your priorities, know your values, and believe in your purpose”
I know that when I am old and grey and I look back at my life – I will find satisfaction in my life knowing that I lived with love, achieved my goals, provided an amazing life for my family, enjoyed all of the simple things, and didn’t get caught up in the bullshit of everyone else – only focusing on those important to me.
Some people may find satisfaction in making all of the money, and completing all of the degrees and driving all the flashy cars and living in the huge mansions
but hey, thats your story to figure out…not mine.
“In the end, it’s not the years in your life that count – it’s the life in your years”
