3 Tips for Living a Meaningful Life

There can’t be anyone in the world who likes the idea of lying on their deathbed, and feeling like their life was wasted, or that it didn’t amount to anything greater.

As kids, we’re all filled with big ambitions and dreams, and we want to have highly adventurous and exciting lives. When we get older, however, we routinely find ourselves “going through the motions” and doing things that we don’t like or find fulfilling, solely in order to pay the bills.

But it is possible to live a meaningful life, and there are many profound reasons why you should strive to do so – not least of all the fact that you will be able to look back on your life with a sense of pride, accomplishment, and purpose, rather than disappointment and regret.

Without further ado, here are some tips for living a meaningful life.

Do things that fulfil you, on more than just a hedonistic level

All too often, when people think of “fulfilment” or a “good” life, they only think of things in purely hedonistic terms. So, for example, a “good” life is a life with plenty of champagne, money, luxury yachts, and attractive partners.

To live a meaningful life, however, you can’t just be a pure hedonistic. You have to do things that fulfil you on more than just a basic animal level.

Whatever your particular passion is will be unique to you. For example, Cynthia Telles finds fulfilment in being an advocate for the Hispanic population.

The key is that, whatever you do, it’s something that feels like it has “weight” and “meaning” that will last beyond just today, and fulfil you on a level that’s deeper than just having a good meal, or showing off a fancy suit.

Adopt a “total accountability” mindset

Business writer Jack Canfield has commented before on the importance of adopting “100% accountability” for your life, if you’re after professional success.

More recently, the retired U.S. Navy SEALs Jocko Willink and Leif Babin have written about the quality they call “Extreme Ownership” which essentially means the same thing.

When you adopt a mindset of total personal accountability, you prevent yourself from making excuses, pointing the finger, and remaining stagnant.

Instead, you are motivated to constantly move forward and live life in a meaningful and effective manner.

Always be busy, do not waste your time

Simple procrastination can rob your entire life from you if you let it.

You might have all the best intentions in the world, great visions of the things you like to accomplish, and so on, but if you’re spending all your free time surfing YouTube, you simply will not be able to live your life in a meaningful and potent manner.

To live a meaningful life, you’ve got to spend as much of your time as possible doing meaningful things. Clearly, this means that you need to avoid wasting your time, and have to remain as productive as possible.
