The Meaning and Purpose of Life

Posted on June 14, 2008. Filed under: Misc | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

What is the meaning of life? What is the purpose of life? What’s your purpose in life? Let’s not get all philosophical here, even though that may be the nature of the subject…

I think the purpose of life is to live and enjoy it and be happy and help others along the way. The purpose of life is determined by each person. You determine your purpose in life. This may or may not be true, but “the truth” is irrelevant. “The truth” may never be known and that doesn’t help any of us live a happy life. I think that it is more important to enjoy life than be concerned about what we think the purpose or meaning of life is.

I didn’t choose to be here; it was not my decision to be born. But I am not going to complain about it. Since I’m here anyways, I might as well make the most of my life while I’m here. That would be better than being miserable my entire life. What I do matters to me, so I’m going to try to enjoy life since it is better than worrying about what “the truth” is and living an empty and unhappy life.

I don’t know the answers to a lot of things, but I know that I want to enjoy life. I don’t know anything about before life or after life, but I have learned a few things about life. Being happy is worth it; being miserable is never worth it. Helping others is a good purpose in life.

So what do you think the purpose of life is? What is your purpose in life?

Life is Full of Energy

You can’t beat energy and enthusiasm. People who are excited about what they do are nearly unstoppable. You can tell the difference.

When you are energetic about something, you get a lot more done. Others are drawn to you and become interested in what you are doing. They want to be a part of what’s going on. Energy is a magnetic force; others can tell when you are excited and passionate about something. There is group energy, synergy. It makes a big difference. When you are negative and complain, others will stay away because the negativity drains their energy.

Driven by passion, Doing what you love:

You become driven by your energy and passion. You feed off it. If you are truly and genuinely excited about something it will show. If you are pretending to be energetic about something, it won’t work. Your energy will soon fizzle out. You have to be truly energetic about it; you have to believe in it 100%. Find your thing.

Those who have it:

You can tell if a person has it by they way they walk, the expression on their face, the look in their eyes. They radiate energy; they glow. They have a strong presence. They are decisive, they know what they want. They have a sense of purpose because they doing what they love and believe in. They are consumed by energy and passion.


Energy is essential to success. You can’t excel without it. There are too many chances to quit along the way. You’ve got to be passionate and energetic about what you are doing, otherwise you may become discouraged and give up.

When you allow yourself to be discouraged, you lose your energy, becoming further discouraged. You must protect it. It is the fuel of your life. This is energy that can’t be used up, only lost. Energy is empowering. Energy is strength. Energy makes life easier and more enjoyable. With it, you can triumph over greater challanges than you thought possible.
