Your Meaning of Life
by: Stan Prachniak, MBA
It’s the age-old question that everyone ponders at one time or another, in one way or another. What is the meaning of life? Why am I here? What is my purpose in life? Or any other variation that calls into question our existence on this planet. While there is no definitive answer to these questions for humanity as a whole, you may find your own answer within yourself.
One possible answer is that the meaning of life is whatever you decide it is. You have the power to define your meaning of life. If you believe that the meaning of life is to make positive contributions to society and leave this world a better place, then you should do things that support this belief. Also, understand that your meaning of life may change at different points throughout your journey in this world. As you experience life, its ups and downs will continue to push you to evolve as a person. Acting in a way that reflects what you believe the best version of you looks like will support your growth and will keep you on the path to discovering your True Self.
It's easy to get stuck pondering the meaning of life, why you are here, and what your purpose might be. But doing so can become paralyzing. One way to get “unstuck” is to take control of your life and start doing what you believe in. Freedom To Change offers a way for you to discover your meaning of life and find your true path in life.
