Man's Search for Meaning
Key Principles, Insights and Actionable Exercises
How meaningful do you find your life to be? Is it filled with meaning every day? Can you find meaning in your struggles and challenges?
In his book, Man's Search for Meaning, Viktor E. Frankl uses his experiences in the Nazi concentration camps as an example that life always holds a potential meaning no matter what condition a person is in. He describes how prisoners like himself not only survived atrocities but also stayed sane by keeping a sense of meaning to life despite experiencing the worst situations imaginable.
Frankl teaches us how discovering our own personal meaning of life can help us thrive through the best times and survive through the worst. This doesn’t mean we have to discover God or become the next Mother Teresa; our own immediate circumstances and decisions all shape our own personal meaning.
