One of the most inspiring stories I know is that of Viktor Frankl, the Austrian psychiatrist and author of “Man’s Search for Meaning.” I feel fortunate that my high school AP Psychology class once went to hear this amazing man who spent years in concentration camps. During that time he observed that the people who tended to survive were not necessarily those one might have expected. More than a function of physical strength, intelligence, beauty, connections, education level or social class, survival seemed to be associated with a sense of meaning. Those with a sense of clarity and purpose were the ones who managed to make it in that most inhuman and unimaginably challenging situation. When you understand your purpose, your life will be one that goes beyond anything you could ever dream of or think about.
