Timeless Wisdom: Man’s Search for Meaning by Viktor Frankl
August was a tough month. After attending a memorial service for a friend who passed away, another friend, the man who organized that service, passed away suddenly.
Several days later, I got stricken with sickness: Hand, Foot, and Mouth Virus.
Beyond that, my business hadn’t quite been going as expected and I faced dire financial circumstances.
Angry, sad, and in a high degree of pain, I began searching for answers. This is why I began reading Viktor Frankl’s classic book, Man’s Search for Meaning.
The book details Frankl’s 3-year experience in a Nazi concentration camp and how he survived by finding meaning in his captivity. It also explores how he dealt with life after he was freed when he learned that his wife, unborn child, and his entire family were murdered.
The truth is that none of us are immune to suffering. We all face tragedy, hardship, and ultimately death. The key to life is in how we choose to deal with our suffering.
Do we allow it to break us? Or do we allow it to make us stronger, wiser, and more capable humans?
These are the important themes discussed in this amazing book, and we explore them in this week’s Warrior Notes Episode.
