Satiation is simply seeking pleasure to avoid being uncomfortable. Fulfillment is created by taking action each day to help yourself and humanity grow. In order to do
In order to create a life of fulfillment you must take action each day to create your legacy. Force yourself out of your comfort zone.
Do not wait for something to happen that will force you out of your comfort zone. Cultivate growth, contribution, and love with every action.
