LinkedIn Post #7 - August 9th 2023 - What's the meaning of life?

๐Ÿค” What's the meaning of life?


Keeping it super light on this sunny summer Wednesday. ๐Ÿ˜…


I have been interested in the meaning of life for as long as I can remember. Or at least as far back as when I started writing MSN Messenger Statuses with quotes like "Our lives are defined by opportunities, even the ones we miss." I spent a lot of time on BrainyQuote.com, I had a lot of feelings. But I digress.


I've spent a lot of time reading, thinking, researching, and learning about what makes a good life, a meaningful, fulfilling life.


In 2019 I came up with a vision statement of sorts, a litmus test for navigating my life: I want my life to be interesting, challenging, and meaningful.


That's what I come back to when I'm making decisions. I ask myself whether an opportunity is interesting, challenging, or meaningful. In many ways, these three things are interrelated and in pursuing one, I find the others.


Now I want to help people as many people as I can craft lives that are interesting, challenging, and meaningful to them.


I've coached dozens of young people, mostly in areas related to their work lives, and what I've noticed is that a lot of the challenges we face at work can, at least in some way, be responded to with a greater understanding of what our larger life purpose is.


When we have a strong connection to why we believe we exist as a human being, it makes navigating everything else more straightforward. Simon Sinek was definitely on to something when he said "start with why," such a great idea, I hope he's found some success with that one.


๐ŸŽฏ People with a strong sense of purpose demonstrate greater resilience, improved mental health, lower stress, stronger relationships, increased motivation, and overall improved sense of well-being.


The Low Achiever coaching is all about Life and Career Crafting, which is the intentional process of designing and shaping various aspects of your life to align with personal values, goals, and aspirations. It involves making deliberate choices about career, relationships, lifestyle, and personal development to create a fulfilling and meaningful life.


Crafting your life purpose is a deeply personal and individual journey; it varies widely from person to person and will likely evolve over time. Cultivating and nurturing your sense of purpose is a journey that involves self-reflection, exploration, and ongoing growth.


Coaching is an incredibly powerful tool that can support you on your journey.


So, what's your "Why"?

Have you ever crafted a vision statement for your life?

What's your life purpose?
