For German phenomenologist Martin Heidegger, a good life could was not possible unless you were living authentically, directing your life on your own terms, rather than following the blueprints set by others.
“Anyone can achieve their fullest potential, who we are might be predetermined, but the path we follow is always of our own choosing," sais (SIC) Heidegger. "We should never allow our fears or the expectations of others to set the frontiers of our destiny."
That quote is from an episode of a CIS series on TV, not Heidegger.
