“The barriers that women have in the past and the barriers that they face today are significant. However, what I think and what I find very inspiring is that none of these obstacles could stop us from seeking opportunities, to prevent us from finding our own happiness and implement our own vision in life – and we did it. We do it. We jump over the barriers, we climb over them and we overcome them.”
Everybody wants to be healthy, happy and successful. And what everybody really needs in order to have this – is a sense of meaning. That is Viktor Frankl’s philosophy. He had a practical prescription on how we can find the meaning in life: (1) by doing a meaningful work or doing a deed; (2) by experiencing something or encountering someone; and (3) by having the attitude we take toward unavoidable suffering and finding something positive about it. That’s it.
No matter how convenient the digital world is, it can’t be compared with the real-life experience of the interconnectedness of people. The power that conferences have is to create this experience that allows us to transform.
