Inspiration Reel: Where Do We Find Fulfilment in Life?

This question can be vague and not to be taken as ‘how we find fulfilment  or ‘when we find fulfilment’. To help us with, the word fulfilment described in this article relates to satisfaction, actualization, motivation, desire and drive.  So lets us ask ourselves where we find fulfilment (satisfaction, actualization, motivation, desire and drive) in life? Some are in drugs, alcoholism  social media such as Facebook, twitter, YouTube, blog sites. Others in sports, porn, friends, people, spouse, family, faith, job and the list goes. It will amaze you ‘where’ some of us find that feeling of ‘royal highness’. What I do think is that, being purposeful in life makes us appreciate what is real and what is superficial. 
To quote Mark Twain “The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why”. To help us have meaningful fulfilment in life is to attach our life with a purpose. Also to know that real fulfilment comes from within not from external things like ‘materialistic American nature’. Let your source of utmost happiness be unique and guided according to constituted values. You cannot simply be having premonition to rape or kill or steal as a blessed fulfilment in life. Contribute meaningfully to your family, relationship, community and workplace. Someone once said all great men are not necessarily happy men because of the sacrifices they paid. Well, we can choose to ‘seem’ happy or chose to be great. There are no easy ways to life, only a lazy way… 

Paulo Coelho says "Too often, we decide to follow a path that is not really our own, one that others have set for us. We forget that whichever way we go, the price is the same: in both cases, we will pass through both difficult and happy moments. But when we are living our dream, the difficulties we encounter make sense." Again I ask where we find fulfilment in Life. Buzzer 1 for BuzzCanada
