Thought of the Week – February 23

February 23, 2020

“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.”

- Victor Frankl -


  • Our thoughts and emotions can lead us to make impulsive decisions if unchecked 
  • In order to make better decisions take a moment and become aware of what's causing your thoughts and feelings. 


  • Figure out what the thought and emotion is telling you. Why are you feeling this way? Are you tempted to just respond instinctively?
  • Determine if these thoughts and feelings are legitimate,or just baggage you have been carrying around holding you back from growing as a person
