While author Emily Esfahani Smith was “researching The Power of Meaning: Crafting a Life that Matters, [she] spoke to many people about what makes their lives meaningful. Four themes came up again and again both in those conversations and in the psychology research on meaning. They are what [she] calls the four pillars of meaning: belonging, purpose, storytelling, and transcendence. Some people lean on certain pillars more than others to find meaning in life.”
