ACTION RECOMMENDATION #1|
Some of your answers to the questions about your Fulfillment could legitimately be called Growth Opportunities. Also, continue to build on any Strengths outlined above in order to enhance the level of Fulfillment that you have already. By continuing to do what you are already doing well, you will be more able to benefit from the Growth Opportunities that were identified by the following questions.
I feel that other people have made a lot more out of their talents than I have.
Make certain that you understand what several people whom know you well see as your special talents. Write these down. Add any others that you see and value. Avoid the belief that most other people probably have this talent too, because often they may not. Next, after carefully considering the needs that people have, at your work or in your family, ask yourself, "Which one of my strongest talents could I put to good use to help in that situation?". Do that. And then stand back and appreciate the effect your talents have had. Keep on taking a few minutes each day to appreciate your talents as you put them into action.
I feel that the goals I have set for my life will make me happy.
Often we come to question our life goals because we've become unclear about what they precisely are. What exactly do you want your life to be about, to stand for? Try this powerful exercise: Write your own eulogy. At your funeral, a close friend will try to summarize the best things, the deepest goals that guided your life. What would you hope that friend would say about you? Write these down. At this point in your life, these are the values and goals that will give you solid happiness.
I wish I could be as happy as other people.
Since our overall happiness is something that adds up from the smaller experiences that we actively enjoy each day, try this. Early each morning, ask yourself, "What two small things can I do today so that, no matter what else happens, I will feel at day's end that it was a 'good day'?" Commit yourself to doing those two things each day, and think about them in the evening. If you only did one, no problem. Aim for two again tomorrow. Your happiness will begin to add up. It's now more in your control.
I feel blocked in getting things done.
Feeling blocked usually results from focusing too much on the big or long term goals we are after and forgetting to notice the small steps of progress we are making. Begin by breaking your big plans down into their smaller steps. Focus on completing the initial steps before moving too far ahead of yourself. Most importantly, give yourself credit as you go.
