The Pursuit of Meaning
The Pursuit of Meaning!
Where do we begin when a more profound desire for meaning replaces our pursuit of happiness?
We start with a clean slate; fortunately, 2023 has given us just that! Entering into 2023 with a strategic focus moves us from the thought of starting over again to being in the center of our lives, where we can find purpose and conviction for the year ahead.
Shifting from happiness to meaning
Unlike pursuing happiness, searching for meaning requires you to set a goal that will cause you to leave your comfort zone and go where you have never been before. There is also more significant expansion, expression, and soul development here; the essential part is that the shift begins in you. This shift in pursuit comes with a price you must be willing to pay.
There is no allowance for ignorance while pursuing meaning, and you must study. Your thought process must meet and align with your action plan. You have to become strategically focused because your energy flows where your focus goes, and manifestation doesn't happen with your thoughts alone.
There are many types of goals that people work on executing, but there is one in particular that I want us to focus on while pursuing meaning. The kind of goal I am discussing is a Type C goal; these are the ones you want to accomplish but don't need to know how.
