Fulfilment. 2 on1 # 7.

I flatter myself that I am a Fulfillionaire.  Please click on the image to get a larger resolution.

There are however two exceptions to the list of attributes given in the image. My health could be better. And I no longer own my business, having wound it down two years ago. I am now in retirement and enjoying every moment of it.

Let me however confess that I had very little to do with coming to this stage. I have been blessed with an attitude of taking whatever comes my way cheerfully and that has helped me reach this stage of fulfilment.  All that I did voluntarily many years ago was to decide that I would not be like the many  Tantaluses that I saw around me.

A fulfillionaire does not compromise areas of his life to achieve gains in others. There never was the need nor is there one now. It may however be that I was never called upon to compromise on any area of my life with temptation. For some of course it may evoke pity!

He lives a balanced life with abundance in all areas. Since I am blessed with an attitude of abundance and am content with what I have, living a balanced life is no big deal.

He is in fine physical condition. How I wish that this could be true. almost a life time of smoking has given me COPD which has affected my ability to undertake vigorous activities. I however have learnt to accept that this is the price I have to pay for earlier indulgence and simply have adjusted my life style to accommodate this reality.

Has meaningful connections with family, friends and spirituality.
My readers will already know that this is true in my life.

Has sufficient financial means to do whatever pleases him. My financial resources are not very big. Yes, I have simply adjusted whatever pleases me to the reality of my financial condition. No big deal.

Is often a business owner who has the flexibility to dictate the type of work he does and the amount of hours he does it. I am now in retirement and have all the flexibility that I need to dictate the type of work that I do and the hours I spend on it.

He loves life and is considered wealthier in real terms than millionaires and billionaires. I sure love life the way it has evolved for me. I leave it to my readers to decide whether I can be considered to be wealthier in real terms than millionaires and billionaires.
