Wonderful Life is Not All About Material Things

What does it mean to have a wonderful life? What does it mean to consider our living as a better one? When do we consider ourselves as successful individuals?

You see, when we were asked these questions we would definitely thought of material things in life. We can say that we have a wonderful life if we have an enormous house with a fancy design.We can say that we have a better life if we already have a high-end vehicle. We can say that our life is on the summit if we can buy the things that we want in life. We can eat whatever food we crave, or even travel to different countries even in everyday money. We can even call ourselves as successful individuals if we have all the money to satisfy whatever things we wanted in the world that the society see as one of the things that successful people have.

But, what if I tell you that having a wonderful life is not about having all the things mentioned above? What if I tell you that to have a better life we don't need to own everything that the society's standards are listing here and there? Would you believe on me?

Here's a Catch

The society that we're living already build standards where we can have as a guide on what's the status of our living. Just like if you have a luxury car and a big house, you already have a better life knowing that your way of living is different from others, and so on. Needless to say, these standards would somehow leave us hopeless especially when we try to reflect on our status in life and the life of others are more better than us. We tend to feel down as we compare our life to others. We tend to feel disappointed on ourselves and we get pressured a lot as we can't walk on the path smoothly towards a wonderful life based from the society's standards.

Howbeit, we must also instill in our minds that having a wonderful life is not about the society's standards or even having the fancy things in life. Life is all about mindset.

It's always an astounding feeling to have people in our lives that will support us endlessly, just like the people above; well-appreciated.

The Right Mindset

The life that we're living is so hard to understand. And as the society's standards are being added, life tends to be more complicated. We feel pressured, we lose the passion, we feel down, and name a few. A lot of factors are affecting our way of thinking. A lot of things are going on that we feel so inferior.

But then, we should remind ourselves that life is all about mindset. Having the right mindset would lead us to a better path; a path towards the life we always long for. A life where we can see life in a vivid and a positive view.

Now, what is a mindset?

Mindset is a series of beliefs that each people holds on to themselves. These beliefs will help one to make sense of the world and themselves.

It's important to have the right mindset in life. A mindset that would help us live a life where hope is there. A mindset that even if our way of life is just right to others, we still find it as a wonderful one as what we think of our current situation is already a better one. A mindset that will help us embrace the life that we have and a mindset where we can make the best our of it without looking after the standards in the society. Not to mention, we should also have a growth mindset. A mindset where we can see challenges and setbacks in life as an opportunity to grow, not an experience that will make us feel down.

How to have the right mindset in life?

  • Don't rely on the society's standards, believe on what you think is better in your life

  • See things in life as an opportunity to grow, not a bump that will only make us down

  • Never compare your life to others

  • Stop seeking for other people's approval

  • Celebrate even the little things in your life

Above all, there's no other people to be blamed on our way of living these days and how it has been, it's us all along.

Closing Thoughts

You see, a wonderful life is not all about the material things that the society already crafted, it's all about mindset. If you have the right mindset in life, things may still be tough, but you will get through it through the help of the right mindset that you have. Stay positive and have the right mindset; a growth mindset.

Just my opinion, achieving a wonderful life is when able to look down and be grateful, now I can drink tea, while many other people there do not have mineral water to drink. Now I can ride a bicycle, while many other people there can't afford to buy a bicycle, so must walk everywhere they going

The society has erected a gauge or a yardstick to measure one's progress etc, but just like you said, it all depends on our outlook in life. Positive ones make us feel better, appreciate life and everything around too.

Indeed my friend. There's actually a thought that says, what matters is how we view our world, not the world of others. We should appreciate what we have and dream what we set in ourselves. With that, we will surely be happy with our progress.

One standard dito sa PH that I do not agree is that, if you are fair, you are pretty. Tas pag maitim ka, pangit ka. Nakakainis yung ganitong beauty standard sa Pinas. Parang naka base sa skin color ang beauty.

When I was a kid I thought it was material things. Yet when I was old enough to understand life, well it's not. But one thing I am sure of it's up to us if we want to have a wonderful life or not

Well said. For me, living on this planet & healing our inner wound, we need to be open. Our mind is working on it while we put more pressure on it. Let it be cool. Our mindset is not less powerful. Feel it.

The best things in life aren't things. Everyone has different interpretations of what success means. For some, success is measured by social status. For others success is determined by happiness. Doing what you love, loving what you do and and being prepared for what is yet to come to me is a sign of a form of success.

For me, having a wonderful life is being able to provide for my kids' needs, having a peaceful life, and living near the beach :) And having my own garden.

Yeah, the society has lots of distractive things which don't do justice to a wonderful life and success. A person without a big house and car can also live a wonderful life, it's just the mindset. Better go with your flow do what makes you happy and contented and set your own level of success.

Indeed my dear friend, having the right mindset can make us successful. For me being successful is contentment and independency. If we can stand independent we can have lots of choices and chances to improve our living, and being contented with our little progress is success.

I love how you pointed out contentment my friend Garreth. You see, in this world where people have never-ending wants, it's so hard to achieve contentment. Howbeit, if you have practiced being grateful on what you have and being contented even on the little things in life, you'll be unstoppable.

Indeed my friend Ramona. If we have the right mindset towards how we wanted to shape our lives, how wonderful our life will turn out to be. True happiness will follow from it especially if we don't rely to society's standards or compare ourselves to others.

Totally agree, when we always adhere to what other would tell us, we will never find the true meaning of our life. Each of our heart has different desires and that we should listen and look for the meaning ourselves inorder to be happy. Material things may seem fulfilling at the start but this is not the ultimate way to make our heart full. We have different purpose and that's why there's no need to compare ourselves with others.

You have shared a meaningful input my friend marg and I totally agree with you. Not to mention, comparing ourselves to others will not do any good in our lives. It will only sufffocate us and bring us down. Moreover, we should focus on our own pacing, have the right mindset, and the rest will follow.
