The most important goals in life are:
- Wanting nothing, because that results in contentment.
- Embracing the freedom to do anything you want.
- Realizing you already have everything, which translates into being happy.
Which of these have you already achieved? If you have already achieved these goals, good for you! You are happier and more content than most. If you are still on your journey to achieve these life goals, look for people in your life who have achieved contentment, freedom, and happiness. Ask for their advice and guidance but be cautious and also listen to your inner voice. No advice is 100% true in all situations. Guidance is helpful only when it triggers an understanding you already have. Tune into your inner wisdom and also listen to yourself. The answers are all already inside you. Think deep and decide that’s best for you. Go forth and be happy!
