First — thanks so much for the incredible feedback and comments on last week’s episode about doing a fast and powerful year-in-review.
In today’s episode, we’re building on our positive momentum and tackling another important topic: how to find fulfillment and give our life meaning, no matter what.
Because the holiday season can be a mixed bag, right? Our emotions can range from utter joy and delight to frustration and exhaustion to deep wells of sadness, emptiness and even depression. It’s a time of year that many of us reflect on the big questions like…
- Why am I here?
- What is my purpose in this world?
- Is a happy life truly possible?
- And, what is the meaning of life?
In today’s episode of MarieTV, we’re covering a powerful framework to create lasting fulfillment and meaning in life.Rather than searching for life’s meaning, remember that you always have the power to create it. Click To Tweet
This approach works regardless of your past or current circumstances. It works regardless of your age, education or background. It draws from one of my favorite books of all-time (a must-read!), Viktor E. Frankl’s Man’s Search for Meaning.
If you wonder, “What’s the meaning of life?” this 3-step fulfillment framework will help you take back control and create meaning, no matter what.
Viktor Frankl’s wisdom is a treasure I revisit again and again. His work is especially poignant when you hit a rough spot in life and find yourself feeling hopeless. Practice has proven to me that yes — fulfillment, purpose and a genuinely happy life can be cultivated with these three, timeless steps.

In the comments below, tell me:

Share as much detail as possible in your reply. Thousands of incredible souls come here each week for insight and inspiration and your story may help someone else have a meaningful shift in perspective.
Important: share your thoughts and ideas directly in the comments. Links to other posts, videos, etc. will be deleted as they come across as spammy.
Perhaps the biggest take-away message we can hold onto is this. It’s not about finding the meaning of life, but about creating it. Fulfillment and meaning are always within our control.
Most importantly, humans have the incredible power to turn personal tragedy into triumph, and that includes you.
Thank you so very much for reading, watching and sharing. The privilege of your time and attention is something I never take for granted. I also appreciate you contributing so bravely, openly and kindly to the discussion here.
I mean it with all my heart: YOU make this one of the brightest, safest and most encouraging places on the internet.
P.S. — This is the last new episode for 2016. Scheduled down time is vital to be a top performer and cultivate a happy, healthy company.
From everyone here on Team Forleo, we send you and your loved ones our most heartfelt wishes for a peaceful, loving and joyous holiday season. Take good care of yourself, and each other. We’ll see you in the New Year!
