Day 5 – Putting Your Focus on a Project from Transform Difficulties into Triumphs

Excerpt from Day 5

Story (Viktor Frankl, Man’s Search for Meaning): Close to tears from pain and the meanness of a life reduced to a constant concern for keeping alive, Frankl found a way to lift himself out of this abject misery. By forcing his thoughts to turn to something else away from the pain, the searing cold and petty concerns, he found somehow a way to lift himself out of his oppression. He saw himself on a lecture platform of the future, in warm and pleasant conditions, his audience focusing on his every word. In this way, the sufferings of this moment were seen as somehow already in the past. It is this future focus on the creative projects we can still achieve that allows us to unfold meaning towards which we can aim.
