At this time, I highly recommend that folks read a few of the classics by Dr. Viktor Frankl and others. Dr. Viktor Frankl was a holocaust survivor. Eleven months after he was liberated from the Nazi concentration camps, Viktor E. Frankl held a series of public lectures in Vienna. The psychologist, who would soon become world famous, explained his central thoughts on meaning, resilience, and the importance of embracing life even in the face of great adversity. He then edited those talks into a book.
Frankl’s words resonate as strongly today as they did in 1946. He offers an insightful exploration of the maxim “Live as if you were living for the second time,” and he unfolds his basic conviction that every crisis contains opportunity. Despite the unspeakable horrors of the camps, Frankl learned from the strength of his fellow inmates that it is always possible to “Say Yes to Liife”–a profound and timeless lesson for us all.
