How do I find meaning in my life?

How do I find meaning in my life?

This is a question that people will eventually ask themselves at some point in their life. This is most common in people who have already spent years working, and in their mid-life and beyond.

This question comes about after years of doing the same thing over and over again. The pattern can be as simple as going to work, getting stressed, coming home, going to work the next day. This is repeated for years or decades.

Eventually people come to ask themselves if this is all there is to life. This mundane pattern in their life leads them to ask if there is some meaning to it, because it ends up feeling so meaningless. For many people, they never have any sense of doing anything of significant or important.

In fact, a lot has been written about the importance of people having a sense of achievement, accomplishment, and contribution to something greater than themselves. A lot of leaders and business owners have known for years now how important these things are, but translating it into something people can be a part of can be difficult.

On the other hand, it’s not entirely up to work or employers or even charities and non-profits to give you a sense of meaning. A great deal of it has to do with what matters to you. The truth is that people don’t give themselves the opportunity to reflect on who they are and what matters to them; at least not until they are decades into their work life.

When they do reflect, we often see people switch careers to find something more meaningful and fulfilling to do. Sometimes they go back to school, or they go back to an old hobby, or join a charity in order to find that meaning.

There really is no right way for you to find your meaning; but it does start with finding yourself.

Join us at College of Allied Educators to learn more about yourself, what motivates you, and how you can find happiness, meaning, and success in work, love, and life.
