All we want in life is to find satisfaction. We are raised to believe that more money, a better job or finding true love is the secret to leading a more satisfied life. But the answer isn’t found in material objects or other people, but rather within ourselves, who we are, and what we do.
"Satisfaction is a skill that needs to be developed by practicing"
Satisfaction is a skill that needs to be developed by practicing, like our other muscles or skills we may have. In order to find satisfaction, first, try to develop gratitude and gratefulness as a skill. Complaining all the time and focusing on your challenge will decrease your energy level. Furthermore, it will continue to make your problem continue to grow.
If you would like to stop the process of being unsatisfied, I suggest you to start finding positive things in everything you do. Try to learn how to focus on the good things and practice that skill daily.
Let me share with you my personal story.
While I was in my 20’s I received my degree and started to work in a high tech company as an engineer. I earned a lot of money, especially for a newly graduated student, had a boyfriend that I loved, and had a nice job. But my soul felt that something was imprecise and still missing in my life.
Then, for the first time of my life, I felt that something was “wrong” with me.
"Start finding positive things in everything you do"
“How could it be that everything was in my hand, I have everything I wanted and yet still feel miserable”?
”How could it be that all of the creation stands for me and yet I am still complaining?
This job probably wasn’t my purpose or one of my strengths but 20 years later I look at things a bit differently. My suggestion is to find the happiness inside of yourself. The outside circumstances never make you happy if you are not trained to be happy. We all find reasons to be unhappy but if you want to enjoy the life and find the satisfaction I suggest you to focus your mind on the things make you feel uplifted, stronger, and empowered you.
