Americans Say This Is The Most Fulfilling Thing In Life
Not everyone is lucky enough to love what they do for work, but having a job you like is pretty important when it comes to life satisfaction. It doesn’t just make getting up and going to work easier.
Finding fulfillment is a journey that many people embark on at some point in their lives. It is the process of discovering a sense of purpose and meaning in your life that brings you true happiness and satisfaction. There is no one-size-fits-all solution to achieving fulfillment, as it is a deeply personal and subjective experience that varies from person to person.
According to CNBC and a new research, Americans think it’s the most important factor to having a fulfilling life.
A new Pew Research Center study asked more than 5-thousand people what they consider “extremely” or “very important” to living a fulfilled life and they said:
- Having a job or career they enjoy 71%
- Having close friends 61%
- Having children 26%
- Having a lot of money24%
- Being married 23%
The research also reveals:
- On that issue of money, nearly half (49%) of Americans agree that having a lot of money is “somewhat important” to living a fulfilled life.
- Younger adults put more value on it, with 35% of those ages 18 to 29 saying money is “very important” to their feelings of fulfillment.
- On the flip side, the oldest adults in the study were least likely to say money is “very important.” Only 13% of those ages 65 and older and 19% of those ages 50 to 64 say money is “very important” to feeling fulfilled.
Ultimately, finding fulfillment is a lifelong journey, and it requires ongoing self-reflection, growth, and exploration. It is not something that can be achieved overnight but rather a process of learning, evolving and discovering what truly matters to you in life.
