Between Stimulus and Response
by DW Green — December 23, 2019
This seems like a good New Years quote. Or at least something to be mindful in 2020! It’s a great quote, and one that I have read many times over the years. It’s a very profound statement, written by Victor Frank, a Holocaust survivor. Not sure why it is, that when one learns of a powerful life tool, one quickly forgets, filing it in a distant folder somewhere inside our brain.
“Between stimulus and response there is a space_______________.
In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.”—Victor Frankl
That “space” between stimulus and response is awareness. And it’s within that awareness we consciously choose a more thoughtful response.
Coming from a place of stillness and silence, we are wiser, less reactive, less conditioned, more creative and more intuitive, so we are more likely to respond to life rather than have a knee-jerk reaction to it.
Wishing you all a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year!
