Prisoners of Our Thoughts
Viktor Frankl's Principles for Discovering Meaning in Life and Work, Third Edition, Revised and Expanded
World-renowned psychiatrist Viktor Frankl's Man's Search for Meaning was named by the Library of Congress as one of the ten most influential books of the 20th century. Frankl's story of finding a reason to live in the most horrible circumstance imaginable Nazi concentration camps continues to inspire millions. Urged by Frankl himself, Alex Pattakos took Frankl's concepts out of the realm of psychotherapy and applied them to everyday life in particular to the workplace.
In this classic book, Pattakos and Dundon draw upon the entire body of Frankl's work to identify seven core principles that help readers find meaning in even the most challenging moments of their lives. The most well-known principle is the freedom to choose our attitude and response to any circumstance if we can master this, we will not be prisoners of our thoughts
The third edition includes three new chapters with specific advice on how to put meaning at the core of our lives, work, and society, drawing on the pioneering work the authors are doing at the Global Meaning Institute. And a new concluding chapter illustrates how Frankl's legacy continues to influence so many around the world.
