2 Choices #11 Between Stimulus and Response...

November 3, 2019



This powerful quote comes from the book "Mans search for meaning" by Victor E. Frankl


Psychiatrist Viktor Frankl's memoir has riveted generations of readers with its descriptions of life in Nazi death camps and its lessons for spiritual survival. Based on his own experience and the experiences of others he treated later in his practice, Frankl argues that we cannot avoid suffering but we can choose how to cope with it, find meaning in it, and move forward with renewed purpose.


Frankl's theory-known as logotherapy, from the Greek word logos ("meaning")-holds that our primary drive in life is not pleasure, as Freud maintained, but the discovery and pursuit of what we personally find meaningful.


3 takeaways from the video.


1. Our responses are most often on "auto pilot" and therefore we have little or no control over how we respond


2. We can intentionally create more space between stimulus and response by raising our awareness either in the moment or upon reflection and then commit to action and change


3. The power of our Choice lies in our desire to change; we can continue responding with our well worn old ways OR Choose new, more empowering, growth centered ways of responding
