Find Purpose and Meaning in Life

October 10, 2017 | By More

Many people, when asked if their life has purpose and meaning may just nod or give some kind of non-committal response. A lot of people really do lead lives of quiet desperation. It’s common to feel dissatisfied with life and to believe that your life lacks purpose and meaning. This doesn’t have to be a permanent condition!!

There’s no set recipe for a meaningful life. Your values and perception of the world are unique. The most meaningful and purposeful life you can lead is specific to you. Have the courage to create a life that potentially lies outside the norm.

Live a life filled with meaning and purpose:

Help someone. The most satisfying life is one that serves others in some way. You could be an author that writes interesting novels or a high school math teacher. You might volunteer to coach youth baseball twice a week. A life devoid of service to others isn’t as meaningful as it could be.

Do something new. Most people spend their time living a small bubble, that bubble where you’re only concerned with short-term pleasure and pain. Change your life up a little bit and do something new for a change.

Push beyond your comfort zone. An interesting and exciting life is beyond that comfortable place you like to reside. The comfort zone is a breeding place for mediocrity, which isn’t purposeful or meaningful. A meaningful life lies beyond the limits of your current sphere of comfort.

Follow your intuition. Your gut is tuned to your interests, experiences, and perception of the world. Let your intuition guide you in the big decisions.

Be aware of your strength and passions. By combining your values, strengths, and passions, you can create a meaningful life. Serve others along the way and you’ll have a surefire winner.

Become familiar with your values, strengths, and passions. You’re more likely to build a meaningful life with knowledge of these pivotal areas. The right lifestyle is specific to you. If your life lacks purpose and meaning, it’s time to create a new life. You don’t have to live a life of quiet desperation.
