How can we cultivate a life of great meaning and fulfilment? 

Much of our lives are in pursuit of material goals and achievements like salary, job title, educational achievements and so on. While these things are great goals to have, if we want to find more meaning in our lives, we must not only pursue our “resume virtues,” but also focus on “eulogy virtues” as well. 

In this episode of Mentally Stronger, I explore the difference between resume and eulogy virtues and how the latter can help us live a life of greater meaning. I also explore some simple steps you can try today to start living more closely aligned to your eulogy virtues.
