When you ask someone what they want out of life, a lot of times you might hear... "I just want to be happy."But what does that mean? You can be happy watching a good movie, happy eating a tasty meal, happy that you got a raise. But if you're unhappy with the job, are you really happy about making more money in it?Happiness is very results driven. If that girl gives me her number, then I am happy. So in that framework, it seems that happiness is situational and intermittent.But what about fulfillment?Fulfillment is felt when you're accomplishing your purpose. When you're making progress toward your ultimate goal. Sometimes even regardless of being unhappy in the moment.Kevin and Alan both had all the ingredients for "happy." 6 figure incomes, beautiful girlfriends, they both earned physiques they were proud of.... But neither of them were "happy."Is it a coincidence that now that this podcast is our thing, our purpose, our passion, that we feel both happy and fulfilled?No, it makes total sense.If you wanted to open a dog shelter and the first month was an incredibly difficult experience, would you be happy in the moment? Maybe not. But after the first month if you looked at everything you had accomplished on your way to your purpose, your passion, your dreams... I bet you'd feel fulfilled.Don't get us wrong, we want you to have both... and anything else you're willing to work for, but it seems like often times people trade long term fulfillment for short bursts of happiness. Build a life that gives you all the good feels!!!
