The Meaning of Life – Explained By 3rd Graders
Imagine yourself 90 years old, on a porch in a rocking chair, looking back on your life…
This video from Prince EA starts out with one of the most powerful visualization exercises ever.
Because it’s you telling yourself to go for it! It’s you giving yourself permission to take the risk, make the leap, take the plunge, and live your dreams.
It’s you telling yourself that if you don’t, you’ll end up on that chair looking back at your life and you’ll regret it.
Studies have shown that for most people, it’s not what they did that regret, it’s what they didn’t do.
Mankind has been searching for the meaning of life since as far back as recorded history goes and probably even further.
People search for the meaning of life in a job. They search for the meaning of life in a relationship. The search for the meaning of life in global causes.
People search for the meaning for life everywhere when in reality, there is no need to search at all.
There’s a quote that says, “Nothing has meaning except the meaning you give it”.
And life is the same way.
The meaning of life is whatever you decide it is. Whatever meaning you give it is exactly what it is for you.
And once you define that, every action you take will be to support that meaning and every result you experience will add value and fulfillment to your life.
So imagine yourself 90 years old, on a porch in a rocking chair, looking back on your life…
What would you tell your younger self about the meaning of YOUR life?
