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. – Viktor Frankl
The key to long term personal growth is increasing awareness of self. As we become more aware we position ourselves as masters. We realize that self-knowledge will allow us to choose our state of mind. We can then choose happiness, selflessness, growth, love, forgiveness and acceptance.
choice & freedom
How is this choice made? It’s made by the response we provide to any situation in life. When we stop being driven by our animal instincts (amygdala) and learn to step back and allow our higher mind to take control, then we can make wiser decisions in the moment. We then choose the better response in any situation! Consequently we are more free.
