What is self satisfaction and why does it matter? Are you truly satisfied with what you do and what you have? There will be many questions running in your mind with just the tittle itself.
Are you happy or satisfied?
What is the difference between happiness and satisfaction? Happiness is bound to certain limit and this experience is spontaneous. Suppose you got a mobile phone or say a bike as a birthday present. You will be happy and filled with joy right.
Or even better, you got placed in a good company with beautiful salary. You will be overjoyed right, but is that your dream job? Or was that bike the one you were dreaming of?
You will be filled with happiness momentarily but after some days, you will get the feeling or start thinking back about your dream job or bike right.
Now you might have got an idea about happiness and satisfaction. Yes, satisfaction is also happiness but for longer term or forever. When you get your dream bike or job, what will be the limit to your happiness? You will never think of any other things right. This is what satisfaction is. There won’t be any regrets and be filled with only joy.
But are there people without any regrets? Yes there might who might have achieved everything they have dreamt of, but what about you? What are you doing in order to overcome your regrets and to achieve satisfaction?
Don’t get stuck with momentary happiness, if you feel happy with those momentary feelings, then your mind will start taking charge of your body and will make you be there forever and you will get stuck with only small happiness.
Make these small joy or momentary happiness as your smaller goals with big steps towards your destiny.
Sometimes there are regrets in these monetary happiness like the foretold example of job or bike. You will be happy but still you regret of not having the one you want. Even students face these, like you gave an entrance exam for higher studies and wished to get selected in top two colleges but you got selected in top 15-20 college.
At that moment, you will be happy that you got a good college but still there will be a feeling which craves for top college. What will you do at that point of time? Under pressure, you force yourself to select whatever option you got right.
Not only students but this happens with almost everyone and the pressure here indicates to financial pressure, time insufficient and many more. The moment you force yourself, that’s the start point of regrets and unsatisfied life. Why do you want to force yourself now and regret later? In order to overcome these pressure you need to take risk. But these risks and challenges are the one that build you stronger and stronger.
Never fulfil your life with small happiness which will bring regrets later. Make yourself worthy enough to select whatever option you want and not what you get. One step now can change your tomorrow’s thinking and living. These small happiness will not bring huge life, they are just distraction. That’s the reason you need to take them as your steps to reach your ultimate goal.
When you get old, you will start thinking about the things you’ve done in past and live with those memories. Don’t be fool to force yourself now and regret your life when you get old. Take proper steps now so you don’t have to regret later.
If you don’t like your present destiny, don’t just live with it but have the courage to change it to the way you want.
