How many times have we mentioned that we are fed up with our jobs, fed up with having to clean up after someone all the time or being fed up with someone in our lives? This feeling of being fed up can mostly be attributed to becoming tired of not being exposed to anything new for a prolonged period of time.
We are curious by nature. Since very early on in lives we are eager to investigate, learn, explore and achieve new things. When this does not happen for an extended period of time, that feeling of being fed up will begin to appear. Then everything becomes tedious and bothersome.
This doesn’t necessarily mean that it is normal to get tired of something or someone; but it does happen when we don’t look to implement new things into our daily routines. This may also occur when we lose the sense of innovation, of improvement, creativity, discovery, excellence, gratitude and progress while we are working on our personal development.
As living organisms, the desire for personal development is always within us. This same desire is always growing since we are all by nature full of curiosity. When we begin to grow tired of what we are doing it may also be because the satisfaction of accomplishment may already be gone.

Curiosity is the urge you feel to want to get to know more about something. The original definition of the word made reference to having careful attention to details. Curiosity is heavily associated with all aspects of human development, which derives from the process of learning to acquire knowledge and skill.
The drive to achieve success, learn new information or perform some action is initiated by the anticipation of reward. In this way, the concept of motivation and reward are naturally tied to the notion of curiosity. This idea of reward is defined as the positive reinforcement of an action that encourages a particular behavior by using the emotional sensation of relief, pleasure, gratitude and satisfaction. And that correlates to happiness.
HOW TO FIND THIS SENSE OF SATISFACTION?
By simply asking ourselves: “How can I add creativity, progress and excellence to what I am currently doing?” Taking into consideration how earlier we defined curiosity as a careful attention to details, we need to be aware of this opportunity for improvement and development in everything we do. We need to establish goals that will start to bring in the satisfaction element. Each goal needs to be carefully planned and aligned with an achievable action plan in order for us to succeed.
For example: For those fed up with their jobs; start asking questions of how you will turn that feeling into a sense of accomplishment and progress. Use facts based on reasoning and gratitude to answer these questions. For those fed up with having to clean up after someone else, ask yourself what action steps can you take to begin shifting that feeling into a sense of cooperation and service or find a creative way to make the other person be of assistance to you.
For those feeling fed up with someone in their lives, make a conscious decision work on improving the relationship and remember to be grateful for the time this person is able to be in your life. Give yourself the opportunity to answer honestly and always work towards improvement.
HOW TO LIVE FOR GROWTH?
Every question you begin to ask yourself in this regard needs to take you out of your comfort zone into a mindset of improvement and growth. Curiosity needs to be the active ingredient that awakens your awareness. It has to produce a spark that makes you ask the correct questions in regards to the things that start making you feel fed up. Don’t get fed up; establish a personal development plan that will help you stay on track and get curious so you can Challenge Yourself To Be Better… To Do More… To Live For Growth!
