The Meaning of Life......

Let's talk about the meaning of life. Victor Frankl PhD had a few things to say about this subject. He was a survivor of the holocaust, although his wife, father and mother did not make it through. He survived because he managed to frame his experiences of suffering within a framework of meaning. Later he wrote a book called Man's Search for Meaning where he speaks about three forms of meaning in life:

The meaning that comes through the difference we can make in the world, the meaning that comes through love and relationships, and the meaning that comes through how we face and deal with unavoidable suffering.

Victor Frankl once said about success "Don't aim at success - the more you aim at it and make it a target, the more you are going to miss it. For success, like happiness, cannot be pursued; it must ensue, and it only does so as the unintended side effect of one's personal dedication to a cause greater than oneself'. Could'nt agree more!

Blessings, Steve
