Life Philosophy

“A human being is not one thing among others; things determine each other, but man is ultimately self-determining. What he becomes - within the limits of endowment and environment- he has made out of himself. In the concentration camps, for example, in this living laboratory and on this testing ground, we watched and witnessed some of our comrades behave like swine while others behaved like saints. Man has both potentialities within himself; which one is actualized depends on decisions but not on conditions.” - Viktor Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning

After graduating college, I was stuck on the mindset I NEEDED to do something to jump on the fastest path to "success".  I had been fortunate enough to receive a college education and felt the only way to prove my appreciation was become really successful, really quickly – or, at minimum, be on a clearly defined path to that destination.  As Viktor Frankl explains in Man’s Search for Meaning, “things determine each other, but man is ultimately self-determining.”  The crux of my perceived need was it felt contradictory to other dreams I wanted desperately to chase.  I had a suspicion the magnetism of "the fast track to success" would be challenging to walk away from.

We did not come into this life to reinforce the madness that we once believed into.
