How to Create a More Fun and Meaningful Life: 3 Practical Tips
Do you worry about living a boring and mediocre life? Do you feel trapped by society’s expectations and the pressure to please your parents? It’s time to take action and create a more fun and meaningful life for yourself. In this article, we will discuss three practical tips to help you achieve that.
Begin with the End in Mind:
Imagine that you visit the doctor’s office and discover you have an incurable disease, with only six months to live. It’s a necessary exercise to reflect on what’s truly important in your life. Clarify your goals, appreciate life and live each day as though it were your last.
Choose the More Outrageous Option:
When given the chance, always choose the more outrageous option. Don’t let society pressure you into making conventional decisions. You may feel crazy but remember that fun and meaningful choices are never “safe”. So, go ahead, make more outrageous decisions, gain valuable experiences, and live a more fun and meaningful life.
Befriend Your Fears and Move Forward:
We learn to fear failure from an early age. We think we suck when we fail to get a job or perform poorly in a presentation. But most fears are learned, and we can unlearn them. Failure is not a matter of life and death. It’s an internal struggle, a nasty voice inside your head telling you that you’re not good enough. Take your fear for what it is, a learned behavior that’s been internalized, and ask yourself, “what’s the worst thing that could happen?” Most often, you might embarrass yourself, but it’s not the end of the world. Be proud of yourself; most people never try.
Don’t stand still; make outrageous choices and move forward. You don’t need anyone’s permission, and you don’t need to be afraid or perfect. Set sail and leave the safe harbor behind. Remember, you don’t want to have any regrets on your deathbed. Take action now and create a more fun and meaningful life for yourself.
