Tuesday Thoughts And Our Need For Meaning


I hope you were inspired last week to get clear on your needs.

This week I want to focus on man's need for meaning.

Not your neighbor's or your kid's or your partner or co worker. Yours and mine.

We all have the need for meaning.

It's intrinsic and it helps us on our search for how we can contribute something good to this world. I am not taking about people stepping over others to advance or putting others down so they look better. Thats' not what this blog is about.


I want you to strive to be your own best.


That includes


Finding Your Worth

In today’s world, we often find ourselves caught in the race to be the fastest, the best, or the wealthiest. These competitions, whether in sports, academics, business, or personal achievements, highlight our innate desire to prove our worth and find meaning in our lives. But beyond the accolades and trophies lies a deeper journey—one that celebrates our individuality and unique contributions.


The Drive to Compete

Competitions are a fundamental aspect of human nature. From ancient Olympic games to modern-day marathons, we’ve always sought ways to measure our abilities and push our limits. This drive is not just about winning; it’s about self-improvement, perseverance, and resilience. For instance, athletes train rigorously to break records, not only for the glory but to test their own boundaries and redefine what’s possible.


Recognizing Your Worth

It’s essential to understand that our worth isn’t solely determined by our successes in these competitions. True worth comes from recognizing and embracing our unique strengths and qualities. Here are some ways to cultivate this mindset:

1. Self-Reflection: Take time to reflect on your achievements and the effort you’ve put into them. Acknowledge your growth and the skills you’ve developed along the way.

2. Celebrate Small Wins: Every step forward is a victory. Celebrate the small milestones as they build the foundation for larger successes.

3. Set Personal Goals: Focus on personal benchmarks rather than external comparisons. Your journey is unique, and your goals should reflect your individual aspirations and values.


Standing Out in Your Own Way

Standing out doesn’t always mean being the best in a conventional sense. It’s about bringing something unique to the table—your perspective, creativity, and innovation. For instance, in the business world, entrepreneurs who think outside the box and offer novel solutions are often the ones who make a lasting impact. Examples of Unique Success


1. Fastest: Consider the story of Usain Bolt, whose dedication and training made him the fastest man in the world. His journey is a testament to hard work and passion.


2. Best: Look at individuals like Marie Curie, who became the best in her field through relentless pursuit of knowledge and scientific discovery, earning her two Nobel Prizes.


3. Wealthiest: Entrepreneurs like Elon Musk have redefined industries by leveraging their vision and innovation, proving that wealth is not just about financial gain but about transforming the world.


The Quest for Meaning

Ultimately, the quest for meaning transcends the desire to win. It’s about understanding our purpose and the impact we have on others. When we align our goals with our values and passions, we not only achieve success but also fulfillment.


Embrace Your Journey

Remember, your journey is unique, and your worth is inherent. Whether you’re striving to be the fastest, the best, or the wealthiest, what truly sets you apart is your authenticity and dedication. For example, a friend of mine is starting to write her memoirs, a client is learning to embrace her new identity as a divorcee, another one is starting a brand new career in her 50's. Celebrate your unique path, embrace your strengths, and find meaning in every step you take. In doing so, you’ll not only achieve your goals but also inspire others to recognize their own worth and potential.


This week's affirmation:



I embrace my unique contribution to this world.

Isabelle
