The Path to a Meaningful Purpose: Psychological Foundations of Logoteleology
Part scholarly psychological research, part self-improvement book, The Path to a
Meaningful Purpose helps you answer four existential questions:
Who am I?
What matters in life?
Why am I here?
How do I successfully fulfill my life purpose?
Author Luis A. Marrero uses psychology to help you understand the meaning and purpose of your life, and how to succeed. Marrero introduces foundations of a new movement in psychology called
logoteleology, chiefly a blend of logotherapy, psychological theories of identity and motivation, as well as teleology, that he calls the science of meaningful purpose. It provides a basis to help you:
• understand why people suffer and institutions fail to reach their potential despite
the availability of practical solutions;
• discover who you are by learning about identities and how they are formed and
• realize what is meaningful and meaningless in life;
• resolve to make decisions that set you up to make the best of what life offers;
• find and commit to a meaningful purpose that serves as a guiding compass for a
• learn how to set goals and make choices that are compatible with what is
meaningful to you; and
• determine how you can select and use the right type of motivation that builds and
strengthens your mental stamina and the confidence to win in life.
The Path to a Meaningful Purpose, a foundational guide, is the first in a
planned anthology. It explains why you behave the way you do and how your
behavior impacts your ability to enjoy life to its fullest, offering ways to help
you grow and succeed.
Meaningful Purpose: A Primer in Logoteleology
Authors Luis A. Marrero and Daniel Persuitte
What is my meaning, 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 that are 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 way that is useful both to individuals who seek to find and connect to meaning and purpose in life, as well as for 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 to 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!
