Related to how you might define living a great life, what are the three characteristics that would be most important to you? Assuming that you’re a reader of my book, Overwhelming Pursuit: Stop Chasing Your Life and Live, my blog, or website you won’t be surprised when I say that for me they include:

  • Peace
  • Joy
  • Fulfillment

Those would be my big three. Why so? Let’s look at each based on



  • Disagreement
  • Hate
  • Discord
  • Agitation
  • Disharmony
  • Distress
  • Fighting
  • Frustration
  • Worry


  • Accord
  • Friendship
  • Love
  • Reconciliation
  • Unity




  • Depression
  • Misery
  • Sadness
  • Sorrow
  • Unhappiness
  • Discouragement


  • Amusement
  • Bliss
  • Charm
  • Cheer
  • Comfort
  • Delight
  • Elation
  • Humor
  • Satisfaction
  • Wonder



  • Dissatisfaction
  • Failure
  • Forfeit
  • Disappointment
  • Frustration
  • Unfulfillment


  • Achievement
  • Attainment
  • Contentment
  • Gratification
  • Perfection
  • Realization

I think it’s that simple. Do you want Peace, Joy, and Fulfillment as defined by the above synonyms or the opposite as indicated by the antonyms?

I know what I want and I know how to get it…which I share in my book, my blog, and on my website. If you want more information on how to get there, please contact me at Please also feel free to send me your comments, questions, concerns, challenges, or prayer requests.

God Bless you on your Path to Peace, Joy, and Fulfillment!!!
