“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.” ~ #ViktorFrankl. .
#BDHBookshelf | When I was filming the first @JurassicWorld, I took an online class at @UCLAExtension about #PositivePsychology. On the syllabus was Victor Frankl’s “Man’s Search For Meaning,” and I’ve been inspired by him and his story ever since. Viktor Frankl (1905-1997) was a Holocaust survivor who devoted his life to studying, understanding and promoting meaning. While in the concentration camps, Frankl continued to study psychiatry and from that, identified key tenants of what it means to be human. His extraordinary ability to find personal meaning in such a horrific experience helped him survive and move forward with purpose. .
Frankl was a heroic individual whose philosophy continues to inspire millions of people even today. I can’t recommend this book enough.
