Man's Search For Meaning

During my time in Maine, I started and finished a remarkable book. Reading the last 50 pages of the book called, "Man's Search for Meaning", I couldn't put it down. Sitting between two people on the plane, I was so transfixed by what I was reading it probably looked quite concerning as "oh's" and "ah's" escaped my mouth with just about every sentence I read. 

Victor Frankl (The author) spent many years in the concentration camps during World War Two. He, being a doctor, retold the story and what he learned. He defined a new kind therapy called, 'logotherapy' where the idea is to inspire someone a live a life of fulfillment through doing work of meaning. Here's what he said:

Everyone has his own specific vocation or mission in life; everyone must carry out a concrete assignment that demands fulfillment. Therein he cannot be replaced, nor can his life be repeated. Thus, everyone’s task is unique as is his specific opportunity to implement it.
— Viktor E. Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning

This gave me a deep motivation to get back to work and continue to fulfill my manifesto which is to facilitate people into thriving community.

What can you do that nobody else can?
