Life is meant to have meaning, but so often people live without things that truly matter to them. Many live a life of happiness , but without meaning. A life without meaning, is a life that is only lived on surface level. A life that matters, is a life that has a deeper sense of happiness and well being.
So how do we achieve a life that matters?
The qualities of a life that matters, are more simple to be tapped into the some may think. I work with clients to show them how to craft a life that matters. Here are some qualities that I can share with you, on how to get you started with a life of meaning.
Qualities of crafting a life that matters
1) Work with a purpose- Choose work that matters to you and excites you to participate in. Work from your heart and not your head. Work with meaning, by choosing to connect with something bigger. What impact can you make on your community?
2) Show others how to have a meaningful life- Choose to do things that make others happy and have a better quality of life. Start out by helping those that are forgotten about such as elders and the less fortunate. And think about one major lesson you have learned in life, then find a way to pass that along to others. Was there a time that impacted you to make a change?
3) Redefine your identity- Grow as a person by being curious. Learn new things, and become creative. Choose to do only things that make you better and those around you better. Make everyday a chance to become better, even if in a small way. Commit to a better version of yourself, and release habits that are harmful to you. After a better version of you has emerged, share your process with others to help them do the same. Who would you be proud of becoming?
