How to Save the World

Dave Pollard writes: "Alex Pattakos' book Prisoners of our Thoughts synthesizes the work of death camp survivor Viktor Frankl down to seven key principles that will help you be happier and more successful in your life:

1. Exercise the freedom to choose your own attitude
2. Know your 'why', and discover your higher purpose
3. Overcome your fears through self-knowledge
4. Don't try too hard or delude yourself, so you don't work against your self-interest
5. See yourself from a distance, so you 'get outside yourself'
6. Shift your 'frame', your focus of attention, so you can see things differently
7. Get beyond your own self-interest, and connect with community and the world"
