Movement toward pleasure
Just about everyone wants to be happy. But many people may not understand that their actions, or the lack thereof, are causing them pain. And many people may also not understand that it can take a lot of hard work to move toward pleasure. Even though it can be hard, moving toward pleasure can be done. This article discusses pleasure and how a person can move toward it.
What is real pleasure?
By itself, pleasure is when a person feels pleased, when they are satisfied with something or when a person enjoys something. There are many different sources of pleasure in life from which a person can experience this satisfaction or enjoyment. Some sources of pleasure are superficial types of pleasure. These sources of pleasure will not keep a person satisfied for long and do not tend to lead to lasting pleasure or happiness. There are also sources of real pleasure that are harder to attain, but will give a person more lasting gratification and happiness.
How to get there by setting goals
Progression is the best way that a person will move toward pleasure. And for a person to progress toward pleasure, it will require motivation. There are many ways for a person to motivate themselves. For example, a person can motivate them self by setting goals. First they will need to decide what it is they want to do; where they would like to progress to. After they figure this out, they should set goals. They should set little goals that will help them to move toward their bigger goals. These goals must be written down. Goals will not become a reality if they are not written down.
Keep the end in mind
To stay motivated to move toward pleasure, a person must keep the end in mind. Keeping the end in mind is the only way that a person will be able to make it through the hard times they will experience during progression. A person needs to know why they are working so hard so that they can continue to stay motivated to move toward pleasure.
While a person is progressing toward pleasure, they should take time periodically to check on their progress. They should ask themselves if they are still moving toward their goal or if they have drifted from the path they were originally on. It is also important for a person to make sure the goal they are trying to achieve is still the right goal for them to be working toward. Will the goal(s) they originally set be the goal(s) that will lead them to real pleasure?
If a person, during this self check, discovers that they have drifted from their movement toward pleasure, or they have discovered that they need to make a change in their original goal, then they can do it. This self check is a great way to make sure that a person is continuously moving toward pleasure.
For a person to find true happiness and pleasure, they will need to work for it. A person can progress and move toward pleasure by setting goals, keeping the end in mind as they work toward those goals, doing a self check to make sure they are on the right track, and by working hard throughout the entire process. Any hard work that the person puts into their progression and any sacrifices that a person makes during their movement toward pleasure will be worth it in the end.
