The response

We are all subject to similar stimuli. Stress, frustration, love, anger, disappointment, desire, need, anticipation, exhaustion, fear, failure, envy.

Two things matter.

  1. There are different responses.
  2. We are not the stimuli, we are the response.

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.
