There Must Be More to Life Than This!

Updated on July 4, 2019

Writing is my passion. I have an undying thirst and quest in the field of writing. Some eat, drink or use drugs when stressed; I write.


The title, "There Must Be More to Life Than This," holds accurate interests. The title of the song expresses the way a person chooses to feel about life, they can see it as routine and distress because life seems negative to them.

Moreover, to truly understand the meaning of the title, one must stop focusing on what’s going on in the world, concentrate on his/her values and what is most important and realize we live in a big world that consists of many things.

You hold the map when you are looking for direction and the course you want your life to go to. You have to take the initiative to know the direction, especially the one that might require you to make U-turns or a left or right turn.

Identifying your values and determine what matters to you most in life helps you know and learn what life has to offer. When there is not enough of what you value in your life, it leaves you feeling like, "There Must Be More to Life Than This."

In this crazy big world, we live in, it is an enormous very noisy place and the endless distractions can make focusing unmanageable. Being able to focus is very significant as a shift of focus can destroy anyone's life. We are responsible for looking at our own day and figure out how to begin it.

Time waits for no one; you have 24 hours in hand presence for you and you need to use that time wisely. We should be inspired to what matters as it has a major effect on important life outcomes.

To learn "There Must Be More to Life Than This," one must be “awakened,” you have to understand your life and write your own life story and choose which events you create or decide which functions you attend.

You hold the compass that directive and your life plans, it participates actively in assisting you in your everyday journey to interpret, outline what you want and what you must do each day to keep yourself aware of life's challenges; your needs to maintain life.

Without a vision to follow through aligning with a goal one can't help but feel there must be more to life than this. A person will be left feeling burned out, emotionally drained, exhausted thinking how can I cope in a big world without directions.


When you choose to look at life without a plan, goals or a vision, you see it as routine and negative and you will always find yourself thinking, and applying the phrase, "There Must Be More to Life Than This" very broadly.

You will feel there must be more to life than working long hours, there is and you have to understand its possible and achievable for you when you take the time to maintain your work schedule and carve out time for what's important to you; find more in life by exploring things that can bring about happiness in your life.

If you want more from this unjust big world, you must create news headlines, one that is not distressing, a life that will allow you to take advantage of the slower moments to set personal boundaries, to maintain a daily routine; establish a foundation that helps you sustain a balanced life. Simply a life that could possibly give you the opportunity to control your own destiny.

In a world that has changed extremely and not for the best. I can understand people thinking, "There Must Be More to Life Than This," but all the same, you hold the control of your outcome.

If you are among the many that feels, "There Must Be More to Life Than This," trust me, I understand as I used to be one myself. That’s why I can say there is, its a new life for those who apply and put in the work.

Here's something to think about, like anyone else, If you keep on doing what you've always done, how can you look for a different result? You will have the same life you want away from. If you want different results, you'll have to try a different approach.

Wise words of Albert Einstein, he said, “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results.” Take into consideration, if you desire and want different results, you must look to create a different and better outcome.

Although I believe that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, expecting different results holds significant value and a person shouldn't continue with the same unwise decision, I don’t really view that decision as insane. I do see it as the human races are creatures of routine and it’s something hard for many to change.


Moreover, the Phrase, “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results,” it's a familiar trap that most human beings fall into over and over again in their lives.

Because most Human beings are people of habit, they fear change and despite knowing they will continue doing the same thing and getting the same outcome, it will be too challenging for some to just do the simple thing and that's trying a different approach.

If you are a person who wants to stop feeling, "There Must Be More to Life Than This," you must be inspired to make a change, stop living your life as a routine, keep true to the definition of "Inspiration" and know why inspiration matters.

Let's clarify "Inspiration" it can be explained in many qualities. Different people will have various ideas of what "Inspiration" is. Webster defines "Inspiration" as a divine influence or action on a person believed to qualify him or her to receive and communicate sacred revelation.

While the Collin Dictionary defines "Inspiration" as a feeling of enthusiasm you get from someone or something, that gives you new and creative ideas. I like this definition more as "Inspiration" can influence in many ways, through leadership roles and inspirational people that many looks up to for guidance or they motivate others to be their best.

The phrase, "There Must Be More to Life Than This," is an expression that holds the most important of life's battles, but you have to be willing to fight for your outcome.

You can choose to continue feeling this way and become a victim or you can work regular hours, cut back on a heavy workload and begin adventuring the world in search of your happiness. You may be surprised to learn life consists of several treasures you just haven't taken the time to discover it.

You have to be fed up with the same thing happening on a regular and feel as if you need to make a change. It's up to you to start thinking, I can’t take this routine anymore. I will no longer sit on my responsibility I have for my life, while the world passes me by, I will not continue sitting doing anything, put forth the effort and goals to begin changing your life outcome.


There are too many factors you have to take into consideration. Start with the reason that you are so much more disappointed with the things you have done to send you over to nothing but regrets.

Because, as we all know, you can do better and if you don't want to be defined by the things you did; you need to face your struggles head on and know what you want your life to be about. Lastly, to encounter something different, you have to arrange for something distinctive to happen and you can't put it off until tomorrow.

So, then think, what kind of results are you looking for? If you are not sure, ensure you begin with what complete you and what will represent you nicely. Then make preparation and the different ways to get there.

Also, know you hold the key to your future and you get out of life what you apply into it. Don't waste your life feeling as if something is missing or you are missing out on something because if you continue to be too involved with unnecessary aspects of things in this world instead of taking control of your life, you will forever think, "There Must Be More to Life Than This."

Michael Jackson and Freddie Mercury echoed the phrase in a song singing, "There Must Be More to Life Than This," in a duet. An artistic song sharing, how can people cope in a world without love, they sing, the support they give in the world transforms into an atmosphere of hope, and there must be a better way for us to survive. They hope the world would someday be filled with love and I pray it will happen.

They sing and ask why is this world so full of hate and people dying everywhere and why must people destroy what they create and people fighting for the human right, such beautiful and true words that everybody should not only listen to but take into consideration.

If at least half of the people who listen to the words would take into consideration what Michael Jackson and Freddie Mercury are asking and change their ways, we would be able to live in a better world. I am asking why think is there more to life than this? When you can find more in life by exploring other things that can bring about happiness in your life.

I agree with this song, there is more to life than what goes on, but we as people have to be willing to find it and make changes as what's going on is so unacceptable.

We can start by voting for better leaders, someone who can lead by example and inspire people of this world to want a change and then we will stop thinking, "There Must Be More to Life Than This."
