If you want to have a fulfilling life then there are some commitments that you need to honour. In order to have a life which is full of happiness we need to find peace within ourselves so here are some of the commitments that you need to honour for a more fulfilling life, starting from today.
Honesty is key in life. Not only do we need to be honest with others but we need to be honest with ourselves. Are you being honest with yourself about where you're going and whether you're truly following your destiny? Are you being true to those around you? Commit to being honest and happiness will ensue as honesty truly is the best policy in life.
One of the most important commitments to yourself that you need to honour is love. Loving yourself is so important and so is loving everything that lives and breathes on this planet. I know this is easier said than done and you might question how we can love those who feel nothing but anger and hate. The truth is, it is those people who live lives of hate and anger that need the love the most. As the Dalai Lama said, "Don't let the behavior of others destroy your peace."
Honour kindness and commit to kindness in your life. Random acts of kindness are the way forward and wouldn't the world be a happier place if we were all a little kinder to each other? Being kind can mean doing even the smallest thing for someone else like holding the door open for someone or offering a seat to someone on a crowded subway. These little things can make a big difference.
4. Never Give up
Quitting isn't an option I'm afraid, not if you want to live a fulfilling life. Dedicate yourself to something you're passionate about and never give up. No one wants to live a life of regrets and shoulda, woulda, couldas so when you feel like quitting, just remember the words of Thomas Edison who said, "the most certain way to succeed is always to try one more time." Also, always give nothing less than 100% so that you can say with your hand on your heart that you did the best you could.
5. Dream Big
Commit to dreaming big. Without dreams we have nothing. Dreams are what keeps us going in life. Dream about anything you desire and if you work hard enough and are committed to achieving your dreams, they will happen. As Walt Disney once said, "If you can dream it, you can do it."
6. Helping Hands
In order to live a fulfilling life we all need to help others in any way we can. Helping others not only means that we're making others happy, it means we make ourselves happy in the process. Everyone's a winner!
7. Know Thyself
In order to lead a fulfilling life it's important to know who you are. What are your dreams and aspirations? Knowing who you are will mean that you're likely to identify your values and principles and live by them. This will make you more content in life.
These are just some of the things we should all honour if we want to live a fulfilling life. Can you think of any more? What will you be honouring from now onwards in order to live a life full of happiness?
