Focus on the freedom to choose, not on making the perfect choice

by | Jan 8, 2016

This week’s video is an exploration of the freedom to choose. I invite you to reflect on two quotes, one from William James and one from Viktor Frankl, and notice where you go when you consider them. What happens when you focus on the pressure to make a right choice? What arises instead when you focus on your capacity to choose?

“The greatest discovery of my generation is that man can alter his life simply by altering his attitude of mind.” – William James “We who lived in concentration camps can remember the men who walked through the huts comforting others, giving away their last piece of bread. They may have been few in number, but they offer sufficient proof that 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
