We all have the power of choice. The only action we can control in any emotionally charged situation is how we choose to ‘react’ or ‘respond’.
Our choice can affect the outcome one way or another.
When we ‘respond’ to a situation, we are consciously in our power with the intention to create positive momentum aimed at mutual understanding and satisfaction.
When we ‘react’ we tend to be out of control, defensive and combative, spiralling deeper into drama, fanning the flames of our ego.
The next time you are in a challenging situation and your ego becomes triggered by fear, and you can feel frustration, annoyance, disappointment or some other defensive emotion rising to the surface, pause.
Take a deep breath and remind yourself that you have the power to transform the energy, direction and outcome of any situation with your response.🦋
