Contexts of Success

Our search for meaning changes the meaning of success to us. One outstanding example is Viktor Frankl, a psychologist who survived the brutal Nazi concentration camp as an inmate and came out as an inspiration to millions around the world with his existential therapy. His bestseller book “Man’s search for meaning” became a reason for many to continue living even under worst circumstances. He spent three years in the camp as a slave. His father, mother, brother, and wife were killed in other concentration camps and the psychological factors that he developed within him to find meaning in his life, to continue life, is what he called success.
