365 Days of Transformation One Word at a Time©
Day #8 SATISFIED
There was a time when I thought “satisfied” meant more was expected of me.
If my parents, an employer, or client said they were satisfied, I always felt it implied I could have done better. My performance was adequate, not brilliant.
Customer service training reflected the belief that a satisfied client is acceptable, but it doesn’t mean they are thrilled or a raving fan.
Sales training reflected the belief that a satisfied client is okay, but better step up my game or next time they would probably buy somewhere else.
Employer’s evaluations ranked “Satisfactory” mid range on a scale from Poor to Excellent.
In the world of transformation and the Law of Attraction, I’ve discovered that satisfied can have a very positive meaning.
According to Webster’s Dictionary satisfied “fulfills the desires, expectations, needs, or demands of; make content. To put an end to (a desire, want, need, etc.) by sufficient or ample provision.”
Really liking those words “fulfills” and “ample.” No lack or further expectations implied.
I never experienced contentment or fulfillment until I experienced daily gratitude. Becoming grateful for who I am and what I have, created lightness inside me, a breathing space.
Gradually, as I started to enjoy that space inside me, I was willing to give that space to other people. I lost the desire to attempt to control or manipulate people or circumstances because it is too draining and a waste of precious energy.
Following yesterday’s word of grateful, today is entirely appropriate to say, “I am satisfied. The weight of the world is lifted when I release the need or desire to fix, control, or own what belongs to someone else.”
Transformation, one word, one day at a time.
Change your outlook.
Change your behavior.
When asked, “How are you?” answer with today’s word.
