This is keyword #017 – Belong
Many of your happiest and most memorable moments in your life will usually involve others. Human beings have an innate drive to belong, to be a part of something. Whether that’s a relationship with another human being, being part of a family or an extended family, being part of a work team, a community group or being part of a movement to change the world in some way for the better.
To live a happy, flourishing and prosperous life, one core element is to have a sense of meaning – to have an intentional connection to something bigger than your own personal ego. Where do you feel like you belong? Who gives you that sense of belonging? Where else might you find meaning and an even greater opportunity to live a happy, flourishing and prosperous life?
One of the truly inspirational and altruistic individuals this world has known is Mother Teresa and I believe she once said…..
“If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten
that we belong to each other.”
