Viktor Frankl, Holocaust survivor and Austrian Psychiatrist, wisely said, “We have absolutely no control over what happens to us in life but what we have paramount control over is how we respond to those events.” In short, I can only control the controllables. I have absolute control over what is happening within me. I have the power to choose my responses and actions, which are key to my freedom.
No one and no thing can make me feel a certain way. I am always living from the inside out. I freely choose my thoughts, feelings, words, and actions. If I don’t like what is happening in my life, I can make new choices.
I do not squander my freedom. I take full responsibility for my life; I am free to create my future based on my inherent DIVINITY.
