All through existence, finding the meaning of your life is a question that follows you like a shadow. There is no escaping it as all of us feel like leaving a mark in this world at one point or another. You are not just a cosmic accident. Life is not only about existing but about living well and with purpose.
What if you lived your whole life only to discover it was wrong? Do you know why you are here? Are you ever asking yourself what will be different if you followed what is really important to you?
Well, if you do not know the reason why you are here, then I encourage you to find out what your purpose is. Yes, there is a meaning to your life. Your existence is fragile. I do not want to be a ‘killjoy’ but, in truth, your light or mine could just flicker out and we could be gone in an instant.
“There is not one big cosmic meaning for all; there is only the meaning we each give to our life, an individual meaning, an individual plot, like an individual novel, a book for each person.” – A. N.
A sense of Purpose is Key
When you realize that you only have a limited time; that tomorrow may never come, and are always moving toward death, you start to understand that life is precious. So, therefore, you should not waste whatever days you have at each moment is a valuable gift.
Thus, you have to take time to stop and reflect on your existence. Ask yourself if you are doing the right thing. With what is happening in the world, you must begin to look at what are the things you love to do. And do them!
Finding the meaning of your life and your sense of purpose is the key you need in your life which will help and direct you to the right path.
“The man who regards his own life and that of his fellow creatures as meaningless is not merely unfortunate but almost disqualified for life.” – Albert Einstein
Finding the Meaning of Your Life
You have to use the powers that you possess for what you love. The reason is that too many people go through life never discovering or using their real meaning in life. Most people go to their graves with their greatness still in them. So, what is it that gives your life a sense of purpose and meaning?
If you know what it is, I encourage you to start working on it. If you cannot do it all at one time, just do a little bit of it each day. Work on it step by step. And if you do not know what your reason for being is, I want to inspire you to find what the meaning of your life is.
Once you discover that, it puts you in your natural power place. Each day, 85% of the people in this world are going to jobs they hate. If you work in something that does not challenge you and you get sick just thinking about going to it. Then you are on the wrong road!
Living a Meaningful Life
When you go to a job you already know and dislike, you already grasp how far you will go. And you can see you have a limit of natural achievement. Simply put, you are in a dead-end position. It just eats away at your self-esteem. And it creates an inner turmoil and emptiness in you that only purpose can fill.
Therefore, I believe that in your existence, it is worth finding the meaning of your life, so that you can live an extraordinary one. You do not want to look back and realize that you worried about stuff over and over for years. It is not the things you do in life that you regret but the things you do not.
So, you do not need to take things for granted, surely in your life. And, most importantly, you do not want to die with remorse, guilt, and regrets. Especially concerning stuff that you did not do because you were either scared of doing or a prisoner of your own thoughts.
Pursuing the Meaning of Your Life
Now, imagine if you will, being on your death-bed. In lying there, you see the ghost of the dreams, the ideas, and the abilities given to you by life all this time. But for whatever reason, you never pursued any of those things. You never acted on those ideas or even never used those gifts or skills.
