Everyone has his own specific vocation or mission in life; everyone must carry out a concrete assignment that demands fulfillment. Therein he cannot be replaced, nor can his life be repeated, thus, everyone’s task is unique as his specific opportunity to implement it. Viktor E. Frankl
To live a meaningful life, you must know that one thing is true: What you do already matters. Philosopher William James, one of the founders of pragmatism, said it best: “Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does.
Challenging the meaning of life is the truest expression of the state of being human. Viktor E. Frankl
Unhappiness comes from believing that no one cares about what you do. It’s easy to feel irrelevant in a crowded world. Wake up, go to work, go back home, and watch TV until you fall asleep. You’re just going through the motions.
What you’re forgetting is that happiness is a byproduct of usefulness. And you can be useful in big and small ways every single day. Say you have to send an email to a student informing her that she didn’t get accepted into your company’s internship program. The words you use can make a difference in her decision to try again. Or maybe you’ve taken on an extra project to help out a grieving co-worker. Your work is allowing him to spend much-needed time with his family. Darius Foroux
Happy Weekend and stay bless!
