Response vs Reaction

“Whether you respond to life or react to life determines how far you’re gonna go in life.”  Unknown

This quote reminds me of what the one I use in my class by Viktor Frankl. “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.”

A practice of being mindful allows you to slow down enough and be aware of that space he’s talking about.  Thereby determining how far you will go in life.
