Something To Aim AtPurpose and meaning
A goal is not always meant to be reached; it often serves simply as something to aim at.
This is a quote from the famous philosopher Bruce Lee. He not only deconstructed a lot of bricks, he also said a few true things.
For our personal development, we need something to aim at because goals motivate us to make the most of our skills and possibilities – our life. When we truly want to achieve something it leads us to offer the best performance. And it feels good because especially the challenging goals, the big picture, a vision bring us purpose and meaning.
In all cultures and at all times, humans have sought to make sense of their existence. Man’s search for meaning is a quest as ancient as the dawn of human consciousness. The ancient Greek thought and talked a lot about it.
Socrates meant; “The unexamined life is not worth living.” Does that sound harsh? Maybe! But the truth is that many people waste their lives. And that is sad!
If you are not living each day with excitement, energy, and passion, then you are not living true to your life purpose.
