Three Things That Create a Meaningful Life

The other day I shared 3 recent articles you should read. The one by Donald Miller focused on a prescription for a meaningful life by Viktor Frankl. Below is an excerpt from that article mentioning the 3 things that create a meaningful life:

Viktor Frankl spent most of his life studying the mystery of meaning, and amazingly, he came up with a prescription for how we can experience it ourselves.

His prescription was remarkably simple:

1 Have a project you’re working on that requires your unique skills and abilities. And preferably a project that helps others.
2 Share your experiences within the context of safe, loving relationships.
3 Find a redemptive perspective on your suffering and challenges.

 

Your turn… What are your thoughts on this prescription? Are your working on a project that requires your unique skills and abilities (for the good of others)? Are you sharing these experiences in the context of community? Have you found a redemptive perspective on your suffering and challenges?
