Our Emotional Needs Video No 9

Updated: Nov 13, 2020

Video Number 9... Our Emotional Needs for a sense of Meaning and Purpose in our lives.

Viktor Frankl the famous Austrian Psychologist who wrote of his survival through Auschwitz in his book Man's Search for Meaning said this, “Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.”

It is through being challenged by life’s circumstances that we are stretched and find meaning.

When we are stretched through what we experience, by what we see, what we hear, what we think, and when we feel deeply moved by an experience that stretches us, we feel a sense of meaning.

It is through stretching ourselves mentally, physically, and creatively by focusing our attention, energy, and imagination positively towards our desired outcomes in situations, that we feel our lives are filled with purpose and meaning. Satisfying our emotional need to feel fulfilled and that what we do matters.
