Top 10 Lessons learned From the Book “Man’s Search for Meaning” By Frankl, Viktor E.
1. Sometimes, the only way to survive is to surrender to dying. Being indifferent to death allowed people to survive. In order to survive, you had to be okay with dying any moment.
2. Your life has its own meaning and it’s up to you to find it in any given moment. How you act, and how much responsibility you bring to the decisions you make determines how big your sense of meaning in life is.
3. Try to force your fears to come true to make them go away. Another thing logotherapy does is enable people by focusing on their internal state of mind, instead of external factors, thus giving them a sense of control over their own life.
4. CHANGE YOUR DAILY APPROACH TO LIFE. We can make life meaningful by preparing and searching for tasks that can define our lives.The more you’re able to find meaning from small moments, the more likely you’ll be proud of the life you live.
5. Use Your Imagination to Overcome Suffering. Positive thoughts can act as a distraction from a horrible reality.Frankl pushed on because he was able to retreat within himself. His body was beaten, but his spirit remained unconquerable.
6. Suffering Is Always Followed by Liberation. There comes a time in each person’s life where we become liberated from our suffering. The countryside around the camp he was imprisoned at was free and open. In this state of gratitude, Frankl broke down and fell to his knees.
7. Love finds its deepest meaning in the inner, spiritual being. Love is the ultimate and the highest goal to which man can aspire.The salvation of man is through love and in love. The salvation of man is through love and in love.
8. Don’t aim at success. Happiness must happen, and the same holds for success: you have to let it happen by not caring about it. I want you to listen to what your conscience commands you to do and go on to carry it out to the best of your knowledge.
9. SELF-DETERMINING—Meaning in each moment every human being has the freedom to change at any instant.“What matters, therefore, is not the meaning of life in general but rather the specific meaning of a person’s life at a given moment.”
10. CHOICE OF ATTITUDE—The last of the human freedoms. Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way. You can’t improve if you don’t know what you’re doing wrong.
