Humans are meant to evolve. Which means we are often slightly unsatisfied. Because we are wanting more. And wanting more isn't wrong. But it doesn't have to feel desperate, either.
We can be happy and wanting more. We can be fulfilled, and still have goals forward.
The happiness doesn't come from what we do. It comes from what we make those actions and accomplishments mean. It's about how we think about the results we get, not the results themselves. This is why you can achieve a goal and still feel unsatisfied. Because our feelings come from how we interpret our surroundings and our outcomes, and not the surroundings themselves.
To create more happiness in our lives, we must create more meaning. And this starts with a deep awareness of ourselves. Of what we truly want. Of what we truly would like to do in this life we have.
This is a question only you can answer, but you don't have to answer it alone. A coach can help you uncover these answers within yourself. For example, As a Career and Life Coach, I help my clients find and do work that is meaningful to them and aligned with who they are. I use different personality systems and modalities to do this. But I also facilitate your ability to tap into your own inner wisdom so that you can hear the answers for you. Because happiness comes from the meaning you make. And if you're not loving the life you're leading, it's time to tap in, hear from your inner soul - that guidance inside - and realign with your soul's purpose.
You can do this. The fact that you're asking these questions is a sign that you are already on the path to greater happiness. Your desire for more is not wrong. It's your cue to go on. But instead of looking outside for the answer, it's time to look within.
