The Space Between Stimulus & Response – Week 3

DecisionsSo this week I am still on vacation so keeping to a routine is a challenge.

It’s difficult to get time to myself, my sitting/meditations are being interrupted and the internet here keeps going out so I had to catch the webinar replays.

In life we are met with challenges everyday, it’s all about how you respond.

Today I didn’t respond well, but I think just being aware of this will help me choose a different way of responding next time.

Most people simply react to challenges the way they were programmed by their past influences. These include Our parents, teachers, society, etc.

We don’t necessarily make a conscious decision as how to respond, we are reacting with a conditioned response based on past programming.

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

I think the quote above summarizes is the space between the trigger and behavior. Within that space, no matter how small it is, there’s still a moment in which we can be mindful.

It is in that space that we can observe without judgment and accept that we’ve been triggered, and then, we can ultimately choose how to respond.

What the Master Key Mastermind Alliance course does is puts you back in the drivers seat, back in control of your life.

Create A Great Day,
