Sense of meaning
“We see happiness too much as the ultimate goal. Happiness, happiness, happiness! If we strive for it too much, if happiness becomes too self-centred and all about enjoyment, you sink into idleness. Beneath that superficial happiness is meaningfulness. A happiness of a more fundamental nature, which gives fulfilment and satisfaction to life. As a human being, you have to be concerned with meaningful concerns.”
Dirk De Wachter
Being meaningful at work
The feeling of being meaningful arises from activities where you have a positive impact on your colleagues or clients by using your talents. At such a moment you are being true to yourself and at the same time making the world a better place.
“Your biggest gift is contributing the strongest and best parts of you. But if you don’t know what those are this biggest gift is not possible.”
