Satisfaction comes from within

There are many things we do in life; many of them we don’t like to do them nor do we see the point in doing them. Routine becomes worthless and avoiding it becomes the main idea in our day to day. Sometimes we think we need or we must do it to make things work but then again, it becomes harder and we lack enthusiasm and we are more tired than ever doing things because we must.

We have mood-swings, yes, we don’t need to be pregnant nor hormonal for it. Somedays we are excited and others we are fed up by all the things we need to get done. Therefore, our daily chores are measured by our feelings and not by our head (intelligence and will). Sometimes we may be excited, others not, and then we start over. No wonder many of the people around us don’t trust us. If things are going to be depending on the feelings we have, then there is no way to move forward but backward.

We must learn to do things even though we don’t feel like it. Satisfaction doesn’t come in between feelings, it comes when we overcome a feeling and despite it, we are able to move forward and carry on, then satisfaction is worth it. If we do things only to have satisfaction from others, it is not enough. If there is no one to applaud us, was it worth it?

We need to do things with the best intention possible; that is because we are putting all our effort to do it right. If something goes missing, it can’t bring us down. We did the best we could, no matter what.

One thought on “Satisfaction comes from within

  1. Estamos acostumbrados a siempre recibir la aprobación de otros. Nuestro esfuerzo queda determinado por el reconocimiento de otras personas. Nos hemos acostumbrado a darle más importancia a lo que dicen las demás personas, a lo que dicen los medios, etc. Cada vez nos volvemos más y más inseguros de nosotros mismos.

    Se puede decir que el merito personal dejó de existir hace mucho. Las personas hoy en día no le dan importancia al hecho de haber realizado una acción con todo el esfuerzo y de la mejor manera posible, lo que importa es que el otro me reconozca el esfuerzo. llega un punto en el que parece que dejamos de ser conscientes de nuestras acciones por el hecho de siempre estar buscando una aprobación externa por que creemos que eso es lo que nos va a dar el sentido de realización y satisfacción.

    Somos inseguros. Buscamos alcanzar nuestro fin por medio de otras personas, cuando la realidad es que nosotros mismos debemos encontrar nuestro fin a nuestra manera. Así como el carpintero le da fin a un pedazo de madera, nosotros debemos darle un fin a nuestros actos y a nuestra existencia sin recurrir a otras personas.
