Way to satisfaction

Published 04/01/2020 at 6:30 am

Satisfaction can be perceived differently by different people. For some, it can be an ever-increasing account, while others can settle for one warm meal a day. Satisfaction, however, does not only require the pursuit itself. It needs to be defined. If we don’t know what we want in life, we may be unpleasantly surprised at the end. We find out that we were chasing after something we didn’t really want.

I’ve had a lot of people in my life and I’ve heard a lot of stories. It made me think about what I wanted from life. I grew up in retail since I was a child, went to various part-time jobs and later worked in luxury hotels. There were still people around me who were doing everything for money and sometimes experience.

Okay, then, is money what I want in my life? What do I want to constantly chase? No, certainly not. I have them as a tool for my other milestones.

So how many actually do I need? One hundred thousand? Million? Ten million? I counted my cost of living, added potential risks, and got the amount I need to get. Once achieved, I can fulfill my satisfaction much more easily.

And what specifically is in my case?

To be the master of my time, to pursue my own projects and family. But to be able to do it in full, I need time.

Many people are rushing for money all their lives. At the end they have saved more or less millions, they have a car in the garage, but poor health, because they have 45 years of lack of movement and stay in the fresh air.
Why do I have a lot of money? Can I write it down on the door or tombstone? I don’t write.

I have had a few conversations on this subject where people answered what they would do when they made a million. Will they go on vacation or buy something? Maybe, but most importantly, they will keep moving and chase after another. They do not work to be satisfied, they are pursuing something that is actually just a tool to make our lives easier.

I recommend everyone to sit down and say what they really want in life. Keep in mind that in a year or five years there will never be the right time to start. It was five years ago. And the other one is right now.

Set gripping milestones. Because to think that a new house or car will make you happy, that’s a mistake. Within a week it will be part of your life as if it was there from the beginning.

Trivia gets us to big things.

I wish you good luck and satisfaction.
