Man’s Search for Meaning by Viktor E. Frankl – Book Review

Man’s Search for Meaning by Viktor E. Frankl – Book Review

There are some books that you read once and forget. There are others that you feel compelled to revisit on a regular basis given the power and the value of the content within.

About

One of the biggest challenges to maintaining a positive mindset is finding new and interesting content to inspire and help you achieve your daily objectives. Personally, I have found reading, YouTube and audio (podcasts, audio books and Spotify) to be critical to making this happen.

Given how beneficial I have found the above resources, I thought to create a site to share my discoveries with like minded people. I also wanted feedback from others on books and other resources that have had a major impact on their lives. My name is Tim and thank you for stopping by megamegamindset.com.

Over the coming weeks and months, I look forward to sharing my thoughts on various resources including great books I have come across, speakers that inspire me and playlists that help me perform. There may even be the odd blog post around pertinent topics and how they relate to staying motivated.

If you do happen to stop by and see something that piques your interest, please don’t hesitate to let me know. My aim is to make this site a dynamic resource to help others in the same way many of these materials have helped me.

Thanks, once again for stopping by. Stay motivated!
