The most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. Such things are more like illusion and fantasy, such as relationships and care for others. These things must be felt with the heart.
“Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile.” – Albert Einstein
Does a time come when a man asks himself if he is living a meaningful life or wasting his time? First, one should know what is a meaningful and useful life is all about. A useful life is not about how much currency we have piled up, how big of a celebrity we are, where we got our degrees from, or a sense of being perfect in everything.
On the other hand, a meaningful life is all about how lively and pleasantly we are living on this globe, how helpful and down to earth we are, to be our real self and be capable of sharing our happiness with others. It’s the true meaning of life that we make efforts for others instead of focusing on ourselves.
Purpose Of The Meaningful Life
No one can change the life of others, but we can make efforts. Efforts must be at such a level that no one can challenge you on them.
The heart is where one feels for others. Some experiences turned out to be good, some bad, but bad experiences can teach a lesson, and good experiences give you excitement, an excitement that can be seen in your eyes, and deep inside into your heart.
Types Of People
There are two types of people that exist in this world. The first is those who can’t see themselves crying or in miserable conditions. Such people are self-oriented, and being self-oriented isn’t a bad thing. People consider this selfishness. No, it isn’t, they are trying to make their lives more fascinating, a good one and a comforting one. They also help others but keep their personality first; they never compromise and never let themselves down.
The second type is those who prefer others and thinks about others first. They don’t care about their happiness and work hard putting smiles on other people faces. They think their victory is our victory and there is nothing more pleasing to anyone who has given up in life. In this case, you are taking him/her towards life and teaching him/her how life is beautiful.
“People living deeply have no fear of death.” – Anais Nin
Every day isn’t a good day, but every day can’t be a bad day. Good days teach you who you are and a bad day shows you how people would act in your downfall. So it’s an encouraging person that never leaves your side and gives anyone a vacancy to accommodate.
Ways To Make Life Meaningful For Others
Successful people live for others and devote their lives for other’s happiness. And in doing this, they adopt different ways. These ways can be based on their personality and resources that he/she can afford, but every successful person chooses their own way to help others in life.
Follow Your Aspirations
A successful person keeps aspirations far apart from his/her objectives. Most people can’t differentiate the two and intermingle the concepts. Aspiration is all about answering yourself every night before you go to sleep about what you did for people today.
How did you make them feel better? Did you make efforts for relieving their stress? Did you heal their wounds, or devote time to hearing their words of distress?
On the other hand, there are personal objectives – What should I do for myself to be on top? How I can get fame and become a successful model for others?
Stay Fully Passionate
A life without passion is something like a barren island on which nothing can be produced or cultivated.
Passion gives true meaning to life. If you don’t have any passion for helping others, then you can’t keep yourself ready for others. Sometimes it becomes so difficult to separate emotion, relationships, and workload, but with a little effort, you can balance all of them.
Make Your Own Rules Of Living
A genuine person possessing an urge to maintain a meaningful life makes his/her own rules without worrying about the consequences.
He/she doesn’t think about the pain that he/she endures making others’ lives more comfortable. He just sets his mind on what he/she has to do in every case.
Be A Kind-Hearted Person
Kindness is not merely a feeling, it’s a language that the deaf can hear and the blind can see. It’s not always easy to be kind. It demands lots of effort, dedication, sacrifices, and devotion.
Being a kind man is just like a flower seller who sells flowers all day and has nothing left in his hands at the end of the day but a fragrance and some painful wounds from the thorns. But when he passes people identify him from the scent of roses.
Strive To Help Others
Striving means sacrificing your own pleasure for others, and it leads a man towards lifelong learning. A humble man burns the midnight oil for other’s happiness and doesn’t bother with his own situation. He leaves his future on risk for other peoples’ tomorrow.
A man full of passions is always ready to do volunteer work. He does anything that can alleviate poverty, to provide shelter to those who are living beneath the open sky.
Life gives you a test when you put yourself in a situation where you create room for others or step forward to serve a more significant cause. But during the whole journey life becomes meaningful, and not only will one person get the benefits, but a family and the family will help others.
In this way, a candle spreads the light from one to another.
