"Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way.” ~Viktor Frankl

This "tweener" Mind Bullet episode centers around how we respond to situations beyond our control—a fitting topic that comes during a time of great uncertainty throughout the world.

Last week we addressed the Covid-19 virus and the idea of timing, including how important it is to pause and reflect on how the environment can dictate our behavior.

This week we expand on that idea, discussing the importance of our response to what's happening around us. Viktor Frankl's book, Man's Search for Meaning, shares many lessons to aid and guide our response to situations beyond our control.

"Those who have a 'why' to live, can bear with almost any 'how'.”

In trying times, sometimes the one thing we can control is our response to what's happening. What attitude are you choosing? How are you going to respond?

Listen in for more on challenging yourself when you can't change your situation, finding meaning and purpose no matter what happens, and choosing an attitude of positivity when faced with uncertainty.

Enjoy the episode!
