I’ve had the opportunity to interact with many different people, and from all walks of life. One striking observation that I’ve made is that success does not necessarily result in fulfilment. If you’ve gone through my blog you might have come across two specific posts about The 3 Golden Rules For Attaining Productivity and my 4 Key Steps To Achieve Success.
These posts give you a blueprint of how to attain success and productivity in your daily life. However, there is another core topic that has far reaching effects than success or productivity bundled together, and that is fulfilment.
Fulfilment means many things to different people. I tend to think of it as a sense of satisfaction and belonging. It is a feeling of you achieving your life purpose. If you are very successful outwards but still feel like there is a huge void inside you, then I’m practically talking to you.
That void is there to show you that you‘re probably not being mindful of something which does not blend with your soul and ambition.
So where does full potential come in?
You’re probably asking yourself this question. I tend to think that the words “full potential” have been used countless times out of context. Many people associate “full potential” with success. While this might be true, it does not necessarily show causality between the two. As I had mentioned earlier, you can be successful and dissatisfied with yourself at the same time. That dissatisfaction means that you haven’t reached your full potential.
In other words, you’ve probably been climbing the wrong tree your entire life.
Full potential and success
To achieve your full potential, you must be aware of yourself. Identify the things that you’re comfortable working on. If you’re deep into your career, than is no harm in taking a step back to reassess your life. Many people tend to achieve other people’s goals rather than their own hence the reason why they usually end up with a sense of dissatisfaction. However, there is always time to change and to be you.
As Tony Robbins says, success without fulfilment is the ultimate failure.
