I came across this classic Viktor Frankl presentation where he summarizes his ‘will to meaning’ theory against the background of Goethe’s famous maxim:  “If you treat an individual as he is, he will remain how he is. But if you treat him as if he were what he ought to be and could be, he will become what he ought to be and could be.”  Very impressive!
