What does it mean to have a better quality of life?
Most people say they want to improve the quality of their lives, but with such a big and vague idea it’s hard to find a starting point to do much about it. So, what happens? We leap from problem to problem or from goal to goal, patching up the unhappy and striving for something—anything—better.
Unfortunately, without unifying your purpose it’s likely you’ll never really feel like you’ve actually improved the quality of your life.
Think about your pursuit of a happier quality of life as a 3 step process:
Step 1 – Make Life Possible
Get all of your basic needs met. Make sure you have more than enough food, shelter, employment opportunities, relationships, and things like that.
Step 2 – Make Life Fun
Stuff your everyday life with pleasure. Fill your day with things you love.
Step 3 – Make Life Meaningful
Clarify your personal values and then consciously express them through all your actions.
A Happier Life
Your happier life starts on a solid foundation of satisfied personal needs. Free from striving to survive, you’re able to thrive and THAT’S when life gets really good.
