Three basic human needs, none of which can be met by accumulating more stuff, more status, or more prestige:

  • Meaning
  • Belonging
  • Contribution

If you’re yearning for something, it might help you to consider which of these is your particular wish – that which would bring you most alive.

And perhaps it would be worth considering whether what you’ve dedicated so much effort to chasing instead  – money, more possessions, getting ahead of others – can ever hope to address what you’re really longing for.
