If you need some guidance on how to get a life with purpose and meaning, read on.
What Does “Get a Life” Mean?
“Get a life,” has become something of an insult in the modern sense. You say it when someone has nothing better to do than focusing on other people’s lives.
But the truth is, there’s a lot of power in these three words. They can serve as a wake-up call for you to get out there and start experiencing life.
How do I figure out where I want to be in life?
Have you ever asked yourself: what do I want to do with my life?
It’s a question we all face from time to time. And to find the answer, you need to start thinking of what your ideal life looks like.
To see what it is that you want your life to look like, you first need to spend some time with yourself. You need to get rid of the expectations that others have of you and all the roles that you play in your everyday life.
This is how you shift the perspective from what life wants from you – to what you want from it.
Think about what brings you true joy, true passion, true excitement. Think about the moments you felt time stand still.
If nothing’s coming up, don’t worry. Whether you recognize it now or not – it’s there. You just have to know where to look.
One strategy you can use to help yourself answer this answer is to push yourself to do new things, and break out of your comfort zone.
How can I have a social life?
People are hard-wired to be social creatures. Yet, many of us struggle to maintain healthy social circles. If this is the case for you, it’s possible you just haven’t found the right people yet.
There is someone for everyone. All it takes is getting out there and finding your tribe. Don’t wait for people to come to you. Instead, take initiative and actively seek new friendships.
Building a social circle takes time. You’ll likely meet more than a few people that you just won’t feel any connection with. What’s important is to be persistent and open to new friendships at all times. You never know where or when you might build a meaningful, lasting friendship.
How can I grow my life?
Goals are instructions to yourself. Setting goals pulls you forward toward the object of your desire.

To grow your life into the one that fills you with purpose and joy, you need to ask yourself an important question:
“What area of my life can I work on right now?”
All of us have some aspects of our lives that we want to improve. But you can’t do it all at once.
What you should do is find out which area of your life would be better if you could take action right now.
This way, you’ll grow your life little by little, and strive towards becoming the best version of yourself.
