Tips For Creating An Extraordinary Life With What You Have

"Life is a sum of what we expect and what we get." 
Once in our lifetime; we all develop that thought of living a grand 'perfect' life- with no worries and absolutely where there is no run for living. But I have realized from my experience that; "life is making the BEST of what you are offered; while aiming to reach for the stars- someday ."

For many people; the definition of a happy life is, "possessing every single thing that others' have, and not what they have been gifted with!" But do you think we feel satisfied and happy even after that? No? Yes, a big NO! Because we feel that there are still many things that are missing in our life in order to make us happy and fulfilling! Such expectations lead us to the "no satisfaction zone"where we end up being confined to our own assumptions and having endless negative thoughts.

For me, an extraordinary life is about doing my "favorite" things that brings me peace, joy, and happiness. A feeling of content and satisfaction with what I have yet striving for more. Instead of struggling to believe that all our problems should disappear; why don't we create a life just the way we want our life to be? A purposeful life that can bring meaning to our lives and that could encompass career, relationships, spirituality, finances, health, physical environment, or any kind of circumstances (you may think) that may appear.

We are all responsible for the kind of life we choose to create. You may disagree with me by saying that; "it's also the circumstances that often interfere in our decisions and choices." True, but we can still use an extra effort and perseverance to create a "happy life" for ourselves. Rather than feeling hateful about what we did not get in life, we should be thankful for everything that we could achieve and possess. The attitude of gratitude is the secret key to a happier life.
" The more we can savor the good things that life has to offer, the more peaceful we can feel within. The more we feel satisfied, the happier we can become."

To be more satisfied with our life and to make it extraordinary purposeful and meaningful, we need to focus on few areas of our living needs. To sum up; if we can concentrate on these essential parts of our life, we can be better aware of the things that are missing; and the tasks (equally important) we have had been putting off to do it later or may be never!

1. Making Better/Essential Career Choices

2. Improving Relationships That Matter
3. Having Regular Small-Term Goals
4. Continuing To Learn and Grow
5. Designing/Deciding Life's Purpose
6. Having Some Good Trustworthy Friends/People In Your Life
7. Creating A Healthy Routine

Still I would say that above all of these requirement; there is one factor that help us in pushing forward our life and makes it extraordinary, and that is: "A Purpose In Life." Doesn't matter if that "purpose" is earning livelihood for your dear ones or working hard to make your dream come true! But a purpose driven life is always exciting and equally satisfying and fulfilling- because you align your life with a purpose that fuels your energy to live with possibilities, with hope and with dreams.


Would you agree with me on this? What do you think what makes your life extraordinary? Leave me your thoughts in the comments below.

  1. Epsita, I agree for the most part... I do think this is not easy to be grateful for never ending challenges... especially if we are upbeat but challenged again and again. I wish it was as easy as it seems... working on our attitude is always important ♡ xox

  20. We are the main ones who are accountable for our joy. There will dependably be issues, cynicism, battles and so forth, however mixing into those things is certainly the wrong way.working on our attitude is always important
