Believing In Others

Victor Frankl was a psychiatrist, Holocaust survivor, and author of Man's Search For Meaning, a magnificent book that I have often recommended over the years, and which serves to remind us - just as in the case of Nelson Mandela - that we always have a choice, in particular about the manner in which we react to potentially dreadful events that occur in our lives. In this brief (1972) clip on TED Frankl extols the virtues of believing in others ... of overestimating others in order to promote them to what they really can be!
