These last few weeks I shared with you my thoughts, ideas, and tools for how you can lead a fulfilling life. In Part 1 of the series I shared the first step you are required to take, which is to get clear about what you want. In Part 2 I shared the second step to take, which is to create a vision for what it is that you want. In this final installment of this series on How to Lead a Fulfilling Life, I will share one final step you can take to get there.
Step three to leading a fulfilling life is to create a plan for yourself. This plan is your list of the action steps you will take to create your vision for your life, career, or your relationships. Once you are clear about what you want and can see it as a reality in your life (your vision), what you are doing now is taking action to make it happen. The most important aspect of this step is to follow through and to do what it is you said you would. In my personal experience that is the most satisfying part as it is the step in the process where you will actually feel and see results.
Following through on the goals and tasks you made for yourself can be difficult. ‘Why is this part so difficult?’, you may be wondering. The reason it is difficult is because taking action might feel new. Taking action also means taking responsibility and doing the work. It means that instead of blaming or waiting for things to happen, you are making it happen. It means disciplining yourself to stay focused and not get distracted. Frankly, sometimes it is just easier to sit back, be passive, wait, and blame. But as you and I know, the results of that approach will lead you down the opposite path of fulfillment.
If you want to lead a fulfilling life, I encourage to take this time to think about and get clear about what you want. Have fun envisioning what you desire and what you want your life to look like. Then make a plan for yourself. Make a list of the things you will do to create that fulfillment in your life. Most importantly, take action and follow-through. Once you do, you will already experience the feelings of satisfaction and fulfillment in your life.
