Stimulus and Response (Video)

Do you sometimes feel like there are forces working against you…

Keeping you from reaching your goals and dreams?

Well let me share with you the story of someone who went through pain and suffering much worse than anything you or I will ever face…

His name was Viktor Frankl.

Frankl understood something that we all need to remember…

“Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space lies our freedom to choose. With that freedom, we can choose our life.”

Viktor Frankl was a psychiatrist and a Jew who was imprisoned in the death camps of Nazi Germany.

His parents, his brother and his wife died in the camps or were sent to the gas ovens.

Frankl himself suffered torture, never knowing from one moment to the next if his path would lead to the ovens or if he would be among the “saved” who would remove the bodies or shovel out the ashes of those so fated.

One day, alone among all this suffering, Frankl became aware of something that changed his life and the lives of millions of people around the world…

    Interesting shoe store story, this one got me into deep thinking coz I’m actually one of those who is struggling to step out of reactivity, which unfailingly led me to a path that isn’t of my choosing. I’m glad i saw this video and happy i found some answers. Time to shake all negativity off my head and see myself walking my path consciously. Thanks a lot !

    You defined them all really well. I can say from experience that life based on reactive decisions is never going to be our best option. To be happy, we need to become the master of both our mind and body and this is not even difficult to achieve.
