Viktor Frankl: Man’s Search for Meaning

Reminds me of the Serenity Prayer:

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
Courage to change the things I can,
And wisdom to know the difference. Reinhold Niebuhr

Viktor Frankle spend 3 years in three concentration camps: Theresienstadt, Auschwitz, and Dachau. He survived because he controlled his feelings. He wrote about his experiences in the book Man’s Search for Meaning. If you have not read it, I encourage you to – it is not long (less than 200 pages) and it is incredibly inspiring.

Be your best self today.
