5 Things Fulfilled People Do

When was the last time you were truly happy and felt fulfilled?

Everyone wants to live a happy, fulfilled life, right? It’s a no brainer! Look around and notice the happy people who seem to roll with the punches. No matter what life throws at them, they find contentment and meaning wherever they are.

So how do they do it? What do extremely fulfilled people do that you’re not doing?

They Know Themselves

People who are content and fulfilled have a pretty good idea of their strengths and weaknesses. They don’t berate themselves for not being perfect. That’s a waste of energy. Instead, they focus on what they do well and work on the things they could improve.

They know a good team needs people with different strengths and talents. If you’re an extrovert who loves people and organizing, you may excel at arranging functions, events and conferences. On the other hand, if you’re an analyst or researcher, your strength is probably preparing reports or explaining data. Remember to honour your strengths.

Humans have a natural inclination to connect. Millions of years ago, survival depended on being committed to the group. People who are content and fulfilled in their lives tend to maintain healthy social networks. They stay connected with friends and family. They prioritize spending time with those they love and have plenty of support to rely on when things get tough.

They Believe in Themselves

People who complain about their lives or are dissatisfied tend to have low self-esteem. They don’t expect things to go well for them and that keeps them stuck in their unhappiness. Fulfilled people, however, have solid self-esteem and quiet inner confidence that life is pretty good. Confident people tend to have more friends and are more successful in general. Confidence sets up a positive circle that breeds more success, more happiness and more confidence.

They Are Grateful

A big difference between people who are content and those who are negative is that happy people are grateful. Not just for their success but for everything in their lives. No matter what else is going on, fulfilled people always find something to be grateful for.

Gratitude is an excellent habit to cultivate. The more you focus on the good things in your life, the more you experience good things. Gratitude energizes and generates its own momentum.

They Have a Purpose

Happy and fulfilled people don’t wait around for good things to happen to them. They have a purpose in life that is aligned with their values, and they just go for it. Extremely fulfilled people focus on what they feel they were made to do, what brings them satisfaction and joy at the end of the day and what makes a positive contribution to the world.
