In the meaningful life, people use their signature strengths to commit and contribute to causes larger themselves.

A series of studies shows the relationship between such commitments and life satisfaction. The importance of a meaningful life suggests that a life devoted to self-centered aims ultimately provides limited life satisfaction.
