Considering that the meaning of life is independent of situations of pleasure and accomplishment and that it is possible to obtain it even if there is suffering, the present study aimed to ascertain what is associated with the meaning of life of Brazilians. The participants of the survey were 901 people, 81.9% female, with ages varying between 18 and 77 years and coming from 25 Brazilian states. To raise this information, a questionnaire was developed,being answered online in a period of 10 days in July 2016, with questions such as: where you put your energy and what or who you dedicate your life to. Quantitative and qualitative analyzes were performed. In the results, it was possible to observe that most people cited the Family as the most important factor, besides associating it with the meaning of life and to those who dedicate it. Moreover, there was a difference between men and women as to the word associated with the meaning of life, so that women relate to family and man the mission and reason to live. The results are discussed on the basis of literature.
