People often think that talking about personal meaning in terms of our career, about turning your passion or favorite hobby into a job. However personal meaning can mean different things to different people. Personal meaning doesnâ€™t necessarily have to come from a job that you love. Instead, think of it as something you get a reward for a job well done.
Itâ€™s Not Just About Getting The Dream Job
People have often defined personal meaning as a feeling you get from choosing a job that makes you feel something in your heart. It is often thought of as something that makes you who you are. However, it doesnâ€™t only come from what youâ€™ve always thought of as your â€˜dream job.â€™ For some, personal meaning comes from the rewards they get from their job. Itâ€™s about realizing the difference you make in your world or someone elseâ€™s. You donâ€™t have to save peoples lives to make a difference.
I have come to learn in my life, thats itâ€™s not all about what you do in life, but itâ€™s doing whatever you do in life with personal meaning and dignity. Don’t do it for someone else but do it for yourself.
