The Power of Choice

“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


I recently wrote about the stages of learning. As I was writing the article, it reminded of the importance of making conscious choices and how these choices can change our lives.

Every moment we are given a chance to make different choices. Albert Camus indicated “Life is a sum of all your choices”. So, what are you doing today?”

What is a Choice?

A Choice is –

  • “the act of choosing : the act of picking or deciding between two or more possibilities”Merriam Webster Dictionary
  • “an act or or the possibility of choosing”Cambridge Dictionary
  • “involves mentally making a decision”Wikipedia
  • “an act of selecting or making a decision when faced with two or more possibilities”Google


Making Choices

I used to think we made choices like the following diagram –

Stimulus Response and Reaction

I now realise we have a choice between the stimulus and the response –

Freedom to Choose

Realising this has made such a difference in my life and I hope it can for you as well.

Remember – “Our lives are the sum of the total choices we have made” ~ Wayne Dyer and in each moment we have the freedom to make a different choice.
