Have you ever thought why some people have fun in life and others don’t, or at least not as much as they would like?
Here is a biggie. Life to me is not about having fun as media would like us to believe. Life is not about being happy neither. You get happiness with a combination of a $12.99 Cabernet and a beautiful sunset. Happiness is cheap. It is easily available at any time.
Fulfillment is another story. Fulfillment takes great thinking, direction, focused action, a goal.
I talk to people and they tell me: I just want to have fun. OK, go for it.
But the truth is they don’t want to have fun. They want meaning and fulfillment. And that is precious.
In ancient Rome Caesars controlled the masses by continuously giving them two things: bread and games (like watching gladiators in Coliseum). The masses were instantaneously happy, they had full stomachs and entertainment. Were they fulfilled? No, they were happy.
So when someone wants you to just have fun or just be happy, stop and think:)
Happiness is cheap.
Have direction, focus and goals. Go for fulfillment.
