What is your idea of a fulfilling life? And on a scale of 1 to 10 (least to most) how truly fulfilled are you?
Sadly, most people are not truly fulfilled in life, and chances are that you may also not be truly fulfilled in life; likewise your people. Notice that we are not talking about a fulfilling life (that is subjective) but rather a truly fulfilling life! Yes, there is a big difference!

Most people are not truly fulfilled in life. This is a pressing danger you must take steps to avoid, and here is how
It is possible to be lively, or even make a lot of money and still not live a truly fulfilling life! Indeed, so many wealthy (and seemingly happy) people, including wealthy professional comedians, are known to have committed suicide in the past; some even recently. For instance, in 2014 a rich and famous actor (and comedian; a very good entertainer and an Oscar-winner as that: Robbin Williams of Mrs Doubtfire fame) committed suicide.
Also, it is possible to be very religious or even highly ‘educated’ and still not live a truly fulfilling life! Incidences of very religious people (including pastors) and intellectuals committing suicide abound. For instance, on 9th September 2019, Jarrid Wilson (Pastor, and author of “Love Is Oxygen: How God Can Give You Life and Change Your World“) committed suicide; that same day, Gregory Eells (Executive director of counseling and psychological services, and head of mental health services at University of Pennsylvania, and TEDx Conference Speaker on Cultivating Resilience) also committed suicide.
Those were very sad incidences but not uncommon; these constitute just a tip of the iceberg; everyday people commit suicide, and that cuts across all classes of people. (May their souls rest in peace.) Also, many people contemplate suicide but don’t get to execute it; some also attempt suicide but somehow do not get to complete it. And as you might have figured out by now, this includes Christians and persons of other religious persuasions. It’s that serious!
Majority of people are not happy! There are three main degrees of Happiness in Life: the Highest level is The Meaningful Life, then we have the Good Life, and the lowest is The Pleasant Life. Research shows that, even though each individual born into this world has the inborn capability to pursue and live the Meaningful Life, majority of people pursue the Pleasant Life, and in some cases, the Good Life which are generally classified together as the bottom because their combined value does not compare anywhere near that of the Meaningful Life.
Indeed, a whopping majority of people do not live a truly fulfilling life; life is tough for most people! Most of the issues are not openly discussed, but come up in people’s prayers, and / or when they are in sessions with their pastors, consultants, and other potential helpers.
The leading factors that contribute to this lack of true fulfillment in life are: (i) Extremely poor affection for occupations, (ii) Lack of proper emotional intelligence, and (iii) Extremely low levels of productivity; among individuals (and by extension, organisations).
Job dissatisfaction is widespread. Indeed, if you randomly select 100 people and ask about their work life, it should not surprise you to note that 82 of them (i.e. a whopping 82 percent of people) will not be enjoying their work life. This is the case because mostly people go into professions / careers without prior proper career guidance, but this should not be so! People should be guided to make informed choices in their professions / careers; you may click here for career guidance.
Well, of all the people that go to work every day, only 18 out of 100 (a meagre 18 percent of workers) really feel good about going to work; a whopping 82 percent of people harbour some apprehension when going to work and wish they didn’t have to go to work. This is a major source of stress and ailments; indeed, not too long ago, the BBC announced that work-related stress disorders had been on the increase. The consequences of stress are so serious; to the extent that, most of the ailments people report to the hospitals with are not pathogenic (they are not the effects of disease causing organisms) but rather, they are the consequences of lack of true fulfillment, which often manifests as stress. It is that serious! You may click here to see more.
