How to Create Meaning in Life
One of the biggest questions that I have grappled with is creating meaning in life. If life has no meaning, there is little motivation to live or to do anything. Waking up each day is difficult. Getting through the day is worse.
Yet there is no standard meaning that is applicable to all because each one of us is unique. We have unique natures and views and we face unique circumstances in life. While meaning has to be tailor-fitted to each person, there are a few general guidelines in creating that meaning. I hope that the following articles may serve as a guide to help you find meaning if it is lacking in your life.
Living a Meaningful Life
There are many unique definitions of what is meaningful in life. Here are some of the views I have on what makes life meaningful. Hopefully they will inspire you to reflect on what it means to live a meaningful life.
How to Have Better Relationships
Having loved ones by your side can give great meaning to your life. Yet many relationships are not problem-free. In fact, the more important a relationship, the more difficult the problems. This is especially so with romantic relationships. It is a simple truth that relationships can affect the quality of your life. What then can you do to ensure that things go as smoothly as possible in your relationships? Hopefully you will be able to find some answers in my articles below.

How to Create the Future You Want with Your Choices and Actions
Our lives are the sum of our actions and choices. Yet managing change and making the best choices in a situation is something that many leave to chance. While you might realize rightness or error of your choice with hindsight, by then it is too late. Your mistake may have cost you too dearly. And even then, you are only aware of the outcome of the choice and action you made.
As a lifelong student of change, I have learned that it is possible to make the best choices in any situation. But logic and preparation alone is not enough. You must also have awareness and foresight of future outcomes before they occur. Only with this clarity will you be able to make the best choices to manage any situation.

Adversity, challenges and problems. Everyone has to face a crisis at one point or another in life. The way you manage could change your life and those of your loved ones for better or for worse.

I firmly believe that if you are creative, flexible and determined, you will be able to resolve any problem you face.

How to Manage Negativity/Negative Emotions
Negativity and negative emotions can cripple and mess up your life when it matters the most. Everyone feels anger, fear, guilt and doubt at some point or other. There is no shame in this.

How to Learn from Failure and Mistakes
For a long time, I tried my best to avoid failure and mistakes. I had the mistaken assumption that successful people never failed. Nothing could be further from the truth. Because I avoided failure and mistakes, success eluded me as well.
Failure and mistakes are a vital part of success and learning. Only by going through the process of failures and mistakes will you know what works and what does not. Without the wisdom and experience you gain from failure, you will not have the capacity for success. The following articles show how I changed my views of failure and learned to use them as stepping stones to improve.
