The best way to discover meaning in your life can be figured out in three steps:

Know yourself. Lack of self-understanding and direction can lead to emotional stress, depression or illness. Knowing yourself is not only important to your mind, but your body and spirit as well. The further you stray from your mission in life, the more out of sync your life's energy will be.

Know your behavioral patterns. Every life is lived by archetypal patterns that offer insight into your psyche. You will gain insight into your life's mission if you notice your personality patterns. Every part of you has its role, no matter how painful or joyful it may be.
  • Exercise: Start with the word always , as in "I always feel ______," or "I always do _______." Any time you find an always in your life, there's an archetype there.

    Try the exercise in your journal and explore how you can make the archetype work for you.
Find a path of appreciation. If you don't appreciate what you have in life right now, whatever it is, you will never realize your purpose. Without appreciation, you will never become strong enough to respect yourself.
