Finding meaning in life can be hard. Sometimes, you feel like the more you do, the further away you seem to get from your goals and dreams, whatever those may be. This can cause feelings of frustration and despair, which can have an impact on your relationships and your ability to enjoy the things that bring you happiness when you’re not working toward something else. Here’s my story about how I came to find meaning in my life and how I try to keep it every day.
I knew nothing
I was oblivious to how things worked. I was completely ignorant. I walked around in a bubble, going on with life without thinking. When my mom died, it felt as though my world had fallen apart, and everything started coming at me like bullets from a machine gun. I thought my whole life was over until… I found Gurulex– a program specifically designed for adults wanting to find meaning in their lives! It really is an amazing program and has literally changed my life! Here are just some of its benefits
I wanted a meaningful life
I’m sure we have all, at some point in our lives, wondered if there is a purpose in our lives. We wonder what is that purpose and if it truly exists, what might it be? Many will say they believe in God or a higher power but how many can truly say they live their life with a sense of meaning? After searching for my own purpose, I decided to write about my journey, which is divided into three sections: The past where I delve into who I was and what drove me then; The present where I discuss who I am now and how that came to be; and finally The future which details what comes next on my journey. Each section holds lessons learned and hope for you as well.
I discovered my lifelong dream
To be a professor that taught, not just facts, but wisdom and experience. I decided I would teach classes about how to choose good relationships. I knew my work was valuable when I saw tears in students’ eyes because they were so grateful for what I had shared with them. I could feel my heart grow larger as my mind expanded with excitement over all that there is yet to learn. Knowledge truly is power and it gives us freedom from ourselves. -Gurulex
I decided on what mattered most to me
experiences, time, love and compassion. My family, friends and acquaintances wanted meaningful relationships, so I went on a personal journey to learn how to connect with them better. What resulted was some measure of success in my own life: greater fulfillment in relationships, a clearer sense of purpose and more joy—and that led me directly into developing my online career coaching business with Eric Gurulex now called Eric Gurulex’s Global Consulting Group. Through our website we help others around the world create their online businesses through training courses on how to make money online as well as how they can attract more clients with social media marketing skills.
I found my path
I’m a writer. I’ve been one my whole life, it just took me some time to figure it out. I didn’t even realize that writing was something you could do for a living until I was in my mid-20s and starting graduate school. As a child, I loved playing with words and writing stories. When I started reading about famous authors like William Faulkner, Ernest Hemingway and Virginia Woolf, well…I found my tribe; people who wrote for a living! After graduating from Columbia University with an MFA in creative writing and literature studies in 2014, there wasn’t really much else for me to do but try to write full-time. The search for meaning was over: what once seemed hopelessly impractical had suddenly become all too real.
