How can we be more content in our lives while still having ambition to be better people?

Oftentimes in society, people consistently strive for more without ever stopping to realize what they have. Bigger houses, fancier cars, more elaborate vacations are all in an effort to keep up with the Joneses. Here we talked about finding a way to be okay with where we are, preserving our mental sanity, but still finding a way to grow in a healthy manner.

Proposal: The core of this proposal is to look introspectively at our lives. This is not to come from a place of judgement or comparison, but from a place of appreciation about where we have come from. Looking inside oneself is difficult but with the right perspective you will realize that you are a lot stronger than you thought. Simplifying your perspective on oneself and prioritizing your values can help to narrow your focus and make you more productive.

  • Be okay with acknowledging that you are still figuring it out. No one has all the answers.

  • Lead new ventures with your curiosity. Pursuing things that you are actively curious about and let that guide you.

  • Be aware of the story that you tell yourself and others. Get out of your own head, talk with others, gain new perspectives. The way you see it may not be the way it actually is.

  • Do not fight every battle against yourself. This leads to mental fatigue. Fight the battles that will make a difference in the long-term (10 years). Fighting over short and mid-term battles are manifestations of perfectionism and your own insecurities. Make the best decisions you can and be prepared to pivot.

Impact: Using this approach can help calm the soul, and free your mind to be more productive and content. Removing the need to keep up with the Joneses and judge yourself will naturally enlighten a greater sense of calmness and peace in your life. That opening of mental space will allow you to grow in the places that are best suited for you.
