    "To have a purpose in life is to be useful ..."?

    To have a purpose in life is to be useful to your own follow human beings.

    Is it meaningful?

    Not with "follow", no. Perhaps you meant "fellow".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: "To have a purpose in life is to be useful ..."?

    Even with that correction, it is drivel. To have a purpose in life is to have a goal or goals that one wants to achieve by means of what one does in one's life. To be useful to one's fellow human beings is one possible purpose in life, but only one of many. The robber-barons' purpose in life was to become wealthy, for example.
