Have you found yourself feeling completely disconnected from meaning in your life?
Everyone should have a sense of purpose and meaning in their life. That said, there are hundreds of thousands of people out there that still haven’t found meaning in their life. I’m here to change that.
If you haven’t found any significant meaning in your life or sense of purpose, this podcast is for you. I’ll show you how to create genuine, authentic meaning in your life and find a sense of purpose that will ultimately guide you to a happier, more fulfilling life.
I’ve found that the single biggest source of meaning in anyone’s life comes from their relationships with other people. This includes professional relationships, romantic relationships, and friendships.
The first thing I want you to do to start your journey towards a meaningful life is to take a look in the mirror, both physically and figuratively. Now ask yourself what you’re bringing into the relationships that you have.
What conflicts are you involved in with other people? What insecurities do you have? What do you ultimately want out of life? Once you’ve answered those questions for yourself, I want you to ask yourself how many of those conflicts, insecurities, goals, and desires you’re bringing into the relationships that you have. More specifically, how are those things affecting your relationships?
If you’ve just been coasting through your experiences and bringing all of that baggage into your relationships it’s time to take a step back and find the meaning in those things. One thing that I really want you to understand is that you can and should find meaning in conflict and suffering.
People that just rip through conflict after conflict without ever taking the time to find the meaning behind those conflicts will invite more conflict throughout their lives. Likewise, people that don’t find meaning in their suffering will suffer harder.
For example, if you lost your job and then picked yourself back up and found a new job that you genuinely enjoy more than your old job, there’s meaning there! Every failure whether it’s in a relationship or another aspect of your life is an opportunity to learn more about yourself and the world you live in.
Many people suffer from depression when doing lots of things while disconnected. In other words, financial success and accomplishment won’t bring you true happiness unless there’s genuine meaning attached to those accomplishments.
Meaning makes people inspiring, it makes them more interesting, and it makes life more rewarding. When you start looking for meaning and purpose in your life, look beyond conflict and suffering. There’s a lot to learn from those things to be sure, but your ultimate purpose should come from outside of that.
Your sense of purpose should come from whatever means the most to you in your life. This sense of purpose can come from your children, your spouse, your partner, your colleagues, or your friends. The commonality here is that for most people, their ultimate sense of purpose derives from their relationships.
The fact that most of us need to have other people around us is no accident. Meaning is compounded by sharing with people we care about.
