According to Carl Jung, to be fulfilled, joyful and happy you have to be able to look deep within yourself. 

He provided 5 simple points he felt could lead a person to fulfillment. He also said that if you blindly obsess over these five things, you’ll end up achieving the opposite of their goal.  Here what they are:

1. Good physical and mental health

You can’t have one without the other. In fact, Carl Jung believed that psychology was actually the only science that could save us as human beings and measure our wellness.He also saw it as a tool to clarify our goals, and learn who we are. 

2. Good relationships

The quality of your relationships with other people is a pillar. You need affection, friendship, security, and love. You need to communicate, share, discover new horizons, learn how to care and be cared for, and create meaningful bonds.

3. The ability to perceive beauty in art and nature

Art is a cultural product made by human beings, which is more than just an aesthetic creation. Every single work of art also contains the essence of a human being, their heart, creativity and love. You have to be able to appreciate all that can elevate you, bring you pleasure, and make you happy. This also goes for being able to appreciate nature. Our very roots are in nature. Every single creature and place on our planet can give you some excellent wisdom if you know where to look.

4. Believe in something: A spiritual path or a philosophy

For Carl Jung, there was no fulfillment without spirituality. He thought that believing “in something” could act as a foundation for well-being.This gives you a sense of meaning and purpose.

5. Know who you are

Find out who you are. Search, dig and discover yourself. You are a mystery into this world and you are a mystery into your heart. Life mirrors you infinite times and  in each mirror there is a truth of who you are. Be curious to know more because this takes you to discovery. Socrates once said that you had to descend into the deepest parts of yourself to find fulfilment.
