Meaningful Purpose: A Primer in Logoteleology, available in Amazon

What is meaning, and what is my purpose? How are they different? Why do these matter? What can I do to make my life more meaningful? Is purpose something we discover or something we create? How does meaning play a role in being successful in life?

Logoteleology, also known as Meaningful Purpose Psychology, or more simply MP, provides the foundation and understanding needed to answer these and other life-defining questions that we all come across in some way each day in our personal and professional lives.

Explored throughout this book are the basics of meaning, purpose, motivation, and much more that are the groundwork of MP. Marrero and Persuitte lay this out in a useful way for individuals who seek to find and connect to meaning and purpose in life and those who coach and guide others.

A handy introductory guide to Meaningful Purpose Psychology, this text builds on the science first introduced in the award-winning book The Path to a Meaningful Purpose, authored by Luis A. Marrero, incorporating further insights and concepts from this evolving psychological theory and practice.

Starting from the central thesis of MP, “Mankind…does not suffer from a lack of answers. Rather, it suffers despite the answers being available”, this text includes a fresh perspective and greater clarity to the blocks to meaning we experience as part of this paradox. The methodology included in this text shows how we can increase self-awareness of these obstructions of reality and truth.

By using the information and methods explored throughout this text, we are on a meaningful journey toward being the best versions of ourselves – as communicators, leaders, partners, parents, employees, coaches, teammates, friends, and members of the communities, groups, and organizations to which we belong.

Welcome to the path!

Book Review by Alan Mallory

Meaningful Purpose: A Primer in Logoteleology

The foundational formula for a meaningful life

I found this book to be a really interesting journey into the surprisingly complex field of logoteleology. Luis and Daniel do a great job of systematically outlining the various concepts and providing real-life analogies that help clarify the material. Chapter one, focusing on “what is a meaning”, has a lot of depth and, since I’m fairly new to logoteleology, I appreciated the various angles that are used to reinforce the logoteleological framework and definitions. That chapter is particularly important as it is a precursor to understanding and maximizing the value from the other chapters, which are more practical and outcome-focused in nature. I could relate to the five meaningful life strivings in my own life and I enjoyed the concepts of meaning exchange economies for qualifying interactions and achieving interpersonal meaning accuracy. Overall it was a great read and a true reminder about the importance of pursuing healthy meanings and focusing our energy and attention on that which is meaningful in life.

Have to give a shout-out to my IPPA colleague Luis A. Marrero, MA, RODP, MLP – well done Luis publishing this amazing book!!!

A local practitioner here in Scotland once told me the following and it’s always stuck. Good words of wisdom!

“We all have four life jars, and it’s important to find balance across all. If someone is feeling out of sorts, unhappy, down or unsatisfied with life and they don’t know why, it’s usually because one of the jars is lacking.”

What are they..?
– Fun
– Meaning and purpose
– Love and belonging
– Freedom

LinkedIn is often full of people promoting books, events, and ideas but having worked with Luis, I know his approach to meaning and purpose in life is worth catching on to, so highly recommend this.
