STUFF WE LEARN IN THIS EPISODE
Purpose and meaning is a topic getting a lot of attention right now. Purpose is found in insight moments where we are connected to something bigger than ourselves. Something happens that helps you view your life differently than before. These moments make us feel small, understanding the world around us, yet we also feel we have a place and something important we need to accomplish.
Usually we’re so busy we don’t even think about what brings meaning in our lives. For meaning to exist there needs to be 3 pillars in your life.
PILLARS OF MEANING:
We need to connect with others, to serve others and create purpose outside of ourselves.
Your career doesn’t have to be a calling, but your life IS a calling that changes as you age.
We tell stories (narratives) about ourselves that shape who we are, the choices we make and our happiness. Use positive data points to create redemptive stories about yourself, rather than tearing yourself down with negative stories.
Purpose comes from creating a meaningful life. It’s about connecting and contributing to something bigger.
