Learning how to find meaning in life isn’t easy. A lot of men struggle with this.
I have struggled with this.
But the truth is that you can find meaning in life. You just have to know where to look. And you have to be willing to do what it takes to cultivate that meaning within yourself.
Let’s talk about it.
I Can’t Find Meaning In Life
If this sounds like you, you’re not alone.
It isn’t easy for a man to find his way in this world. There are a lot of factors that contribute to men feeling lost and disoriented in this life. There are even a lot of factors that make it difficult for men nowadays to be completely comfortable in their own masculinity.
But today, I am here to tell you that you can absolutely find purpose and meaning. You just have to know where to look.
The key is to understand that the universe does not owe you any kind of meaning or purpose.
We often feel that someone needs to give us a sense of meaning in order for it to be real, or to count.
But that simply isn’t true.
The fact of the matter is that we can create our own meaning and purpose in life. And I am quite convinced that this process is the one that creates the strongest men.
When men are strong enough to define their own purpose and follow it, they are capable of doing extraordinary things.
Why? Because it honestly isn’t easy to find meaning in life without outside help. So doing this for yourself will cultivate an extraordinary amount of strength.
Here’s how you do it.

How Do I Get More Meaning In My Life?
The first step to finding more meaning in life is to think about what you love.
What are you passionate about?
Once you figure out what you are passionate about, your purpose and meaning become infinitely clearer.
Pay very close attention to these steps, as they are very important.
- Discovering your passion comes first
- Once you understand your passion, you can figure out what problem you want to solve for yourself
- Once you figure out what problem to solve for yourself (this is your struggle), you set to the task of solving it
- Once you solve your problem and succeed in your life, you can then move on to find a greater purpose and meaning… which is to help other people do what you have done
So, you help yourself first. Then, once you learn how to do that, you start doing the same thing for other people… hopefully for the greater good of other people around you.
This is very important, and is a fundamental part of the alpha male journey.
Your purpose will inevitably lead to you using the skills you learned to help yourself to help others… and when you realize what this path is, that is when your purpose becomes evident.
How Do You Find Your Purpose In Life?
To find your purpose in life, start by figuring out your passion.
How do you figure out what your passion is? Well, you can read this post for a more in-depth guide.
But for now, you can answer these questions to help you.
- What do you love to do?
- What do you daydream about?
- When you get home from work or school, what is the first thing you think about doing for fun?
- If you could be great at any one thing, what would it be?
- What is the topic that most gets your attention when you hear other people talking about it?
You see, I love making music. I also love writing.
But at the end of the day, these are not the topics that are most likely to get my attention.
How can men win with women? How can men and women have better relationships? How can men learn to flirt with women, have better sex, better relationships, and more success in these areas? How can men learn to be alpha men, and find victory in their lives?
These are the number-one types of conversations that get my attention. Therefore, I have found my passion. I am passionate about men winning with women, in whatever capacity that means for them!
I am also passionate about the alpha male journey, which is a big reason for why I have written the Oath of Kings, the alpha male code that I choose to live my life by.
So this blog is truly an extension of my passion. I figured out my passion, and worked on myself to figure it out for me.
And now, I am beginning the journey to help other men do what I have learned to do.
What Is The Real Meaning Of Life?
The real meaning of life is to pursue what you love, to chase excellence, and to leave a lasting legacy in the world after you’re gone.
We are never guaranteed another day in this world. So as alpha males and warriors, we strive to make our lives better, and to, in turn, make the world better.
We make the world better not only for ourselves, but also for our children, our loved ones, our tribe, our community, and for those who will follow in our footsteps.
This is what leaving a lasting legacy is all about, and it should be important to us.
How To Find Your Purpose And Passion In Life
If you want to find your purpose and passion in life, start by writing down a list of your 10 favorite things to do.
Take some time and meditate on that list. You might also need to experiment to figure out which one of those things are truly your favorite.
Sometimes, what you want to do is not something that you know how to do.
Maybe you want to build robots, but do not know how to build robots?
That’s ok. It may be worth it to learn.
In any case, try to be true to yourself. The sooner you discover your passion, the sooner you can get on track to figure out how to find meaning in life as a man.
Hopefully this post has helped to answer some questions for you about what it means to find meaning in life.
I know that this can be a difficult journey… but don’t give up!
Keep at it. Keep learning, reading books, and doing your best to make the world a better place.
Eventually, you will discover the answers that you are looking for.
Just remember… it all starts with you, and it works outward from there.
Go with grace, my friends… and NEVER give up your power.
