What is the single most important ingredient for a healthy and successful life?
Many answers have been offered and discussed. Is it love; wholesome relationships and healthy attachments? Is it religion; faith in a higher power that we answer to and a code of laws to follow? Or conversely, is it simply the pursuit of pleasure; enjoying the moments and living it up?
While all of these are certainly options people follow, and they may also be valid approaches, with each one playing a vital role in our lives, there is still a bedrock that lies beneath all other forces, which is absolutely necessary to living a truly wholesome and productive life.
This single most important ingredient is meaning and purpose. When you have a unique calling and distinct mission, that in turn drives everything else in your life. If you don’t have a raison d’etre, everything you do will be lacking a sense of direction and urgency. Meaning — that your life matters and all your choices matter, now and forever — is the foundation upon which every other part of your life is built, including healthy love and relationships, including religion, including enjoyment and success in every given area.
