It can be easy to run through the maze of life without pausing to think of its meaning. Does what I’m doing matter? More importantly, does it matter to me?


But how can we cultivate a more meaningful life? The answer is usually complicated. It can depend on many factors. I’ve written down 10 ideas that I believe will help you find meaning in your life every day, so that you can’t wait to get up in the morning and see what the day will bring.但是怎么样才能够让人生更有意义呢?一般来说,答案很复杂,因为这取决于很多的因素。这里我列了10条,相信能够帮助你们找到人生的意义,找到每天起床体验生活的动力。

1. Know What’s Important知道什么是重要的

Know what’s important for you. Write down your top 5 things that you believe are the essence of how you want to live life. This can include things like “family time,” or “sing every day.” It could also include more complex ideas, like “honesty” and “simplicity.”


2. Pursue Your Passion追逐你的热情

I believe everyone should pursue their passion in life. It’s what makes life worth living, and gives our lives true meaning and purpose. Each time you work on something you love, it creates joy inside you like nothing else. Finding a way to use your passions to give back to the world will give your life ultimate meaning.


If you can’t manage (or aren’t ready) to work on your passion for a living, be sure and make time for it every day. By working on your passion and becoming an expert in it, you will eventually have the opportunity to make money from it. Be ready to seize that opportunity!


3. Discover Your Life’s Purpose发现人生的目标

If you had to give yourself a reason to live, what would it be? What would you stand for? What principles do you hold highest? Is your life’s purpose to help others? Is it to inspire others with great works of art, or you words? Finding your life’s purpose is a daunting task, and when I first heard the idea, I had no idea where to start.


4. Be Self-Aware增强自我意识

Be aware of yourself and your actions. Remain mindful of what you do at all times, and make sure you are living life according to your principles, your life’s purpose, and what you are passionate about. Review your actions each day, taking stock of those that strayed from your path. Work towards correcting any incidents in the future. Meditation is a great tool for accomplishing this task. It helps us increase our self-awareness throughout the day.


5. Focus专注

Rather than chasing 3 or 4 goals and making very little progress on them, place all of your energy on one thing. Focus. Not only will you alleviate some of the stress associated with trying to juggle so many tasks, you will be much more successful. Try and align your goal with something you are passionate about, so that there will be an intrinsic drive to work hard and do well.


6. People More Than Things人比物更重要

Often, we are faced with wanting to buy material goods. I recommend you consider carefully what you purchase, and think more about spending your money on experiences with friends and family. Not only will this give deeper meaning to your life by focusing on your relationships rather than material wealth, but you will be a happier person as a result.


7. Live With Compassion生活需要同情心

Both for yourself, and others. Keep in mind the following quote:


"One must be compassionate to one's self before external compassion." For some, compassion is the purpose of life, what gives it meaning, and what leads to ultimate happiness.

“一个人只有对自己有同情心,才能对外界有同情心。” 对于有些人,同情心是生活的目标,与生命带来意义并指向最终的幸福。

8. Find a Way to Give Back懂得回报

Do something that both honors your beliefs and passions, while giving something back to the world. By giving something back, we inevitably find purpose in the act. By cultivating more of these activities, you will find your life has more meaning and purpose behind it.


9. Simplify Your Life让生活更简单

By simplifying your life, you’ll have more time to do what fulfills you and gives your life meaning. It can also help reduce stress and make your overall life easier to manage. It can also greatly improve your productivity. If you’ve never tried to simplify things before, it really is a great feeling.让生活更简单,你将有更多的时间能够投入让生活更有意义的事情中去,减少压力,让生活来得更轻松。同时还能大幅度提升效率。简化生活起来,感觉真的很棒!

10. Set Daily Goals设定每日目标

In the morning, before you start your day, create a list of 3 goals that you find fulfilling and meaningful. Make sure they adhere to your set of principles and beliefs. Tackle the hardest things first! Don’t make this list too long. By placing too many things on the list, you’ll feel the urge to multi-task, which is not good, or you’ll feel overwhelmed, which isn’t good either. By trying to do less, you’ll end up doing more.


Doing all of these things at once may seem daunting, but you can pick one thing at a time and slowly incorporate the ideas into your life. Life is about the journey, not the destination. Living a life of purpose gives both fulfillment and meaning to your journey.
