What is the secret to a meaningful life?

I am utterly entirely stupendously fired up by this notion I read in Seligman’s (2002) Authentic Happiness: Using the New Positive Psychology to Realise Your Potential for Lasting Fulfillment!!!

What is the secret to a meaningful life?

In essence, a meaningful life is employing your strengths in whatever you do, think or feel with the ultimate aim of advancing knowledge, power and goodness.

Knowledge.

Power.

Goodness.

Some of my ideas that sprouted up while listening to r&b music:

Knowledge, to do with health, wealth and relationships;

Power, to do with health, wealth and relationships;

Goodness, to do with the human conscience, spirituality and religion.
