Following V. Frankl's Footsteps - Living A Meaningful Life
You cannot find fulfilment by chasing success, by working harder, by running faster. You find it by stopping and thinking differently. By asking yourself what it is you really want. What is your life really about? If you want to thrive, you have to pursue both success and fulfilment. They are separate dimensions; each requires time and energy. Achieving one does not necessarily mean you will achieve the other.
We largely know what is required of us to be successful – hard work, perseverance, talent, and a little luck. We are less sure – as individuals and as a culture – of what is asked of us to be fulfilled.
So the question is: how do you create a life that really is meaningful and purposeful?
In the Protected content I met Dr. Frankl for the first time when I attended a speech Dr. Frankl was giving, addressing a meeting of young people in Vienna. In a nutshell, Dr. Frankl suggested to find answers to three questions:
A) WHY AM I REALLY HERE ON THIS PLANET?
There must be more to life than increasing its speed. Or making more money; this will bring more comfort and convenience, but does it bring lasting fulfilment? So, how can you contribute to the world in some way - for the benefit of others and yourself?
B) WHAT DO I REALLY WANT TO DO, BE OR ACHIEVE?
What are your talents, what are you good at – and enjoy doing?!
C) WHAT KEEPS GETTING IN MY WAY?
Become of aware of the fears, programming and conditionings of our education, society and culture, which tell us to see and do things a certain way; or what your life is supposed to be.
When you can bring together these 3 areas – why, what and how – that’s what creates the energy to live a purposeful life.
Experience answering these questions yourself and let this guide you into the direction that feels most true, most alive, most purposeful for you.
